Is Harry Lennix leaving The Blacklist? Is Harold Cooper gone from the FBI?
Is Harry Lennix leaving The Blacklist, and should you be greatly worried at the moment about the future of one Harold Cooper? If you are, we more than understand!
Let’s take a moment here to analyze where things are for this character. He was recently arrested for the cover-up in the Doug Koster case. He may have been framed for it, but that doesn’t change some of his actions after the fact. There’s a chance that he never works again! For now, he has handed over the duties at the FBI Task Force to Aram, and he’d still be locked up were it not for Reddington posting his bail.

Despite his very obvious predicament at the moment, we are still pretty confident that Lennix is not leaving the NBC show. There’s no evidence of it, and we still remain confident that he and Reddington will find a way to clear his name and get him out of this. James Spader’s character needs him at the FBI, since he has a very particular understanding of the world that he appreciates very much.
Also, it’d be pretty painful for us as a viewer to lose Lennix given that we just lost Megan Boone at the end of last season. Cooper is essential to the fabric of the show and at this point, the relationship between he and Reddington is one of the most fascinating ones that we’ve got across the board.
At the end of the episode, Cooper was back at the Task Force … albeit temporary. He has a month to figure things out before he goes to prison, if he can.
Are you worried that Harry Lennix could be leaving The Blacklist at the end of season 9?
