Red Mourns His Loss, Plots Revenge in The Blacklist’s Return Episode “The Good Samaritan Killer”

When we last saw The Blacklist Liz (Megan Boone) was even more confused about her parentage, Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) had (curiously) reunited with his ex, and Red (James Spader) was in the wind following his harrowing experience at the hands of Anslo Garrick, and the mysterious and powerful Mr Fitch, played by guest star Alan Alda.

The good news is that both The Blacklist and Red Reddington will be back as early as January 13 on NBC, and it looks like the very next name on Red’s little black list belongs to that of the mole mole responsible for leading Garrick to the FBI blacksite, and ultimately for the death of Red’s lover Luli.

We’re guessing this is one criminal Red won’t be happy to turn over to Liz when the time comes. We’re also certain this is one criminal Liz will be determined to bring in on her own terms.

NBC released some first look spoiler images from the upcoming Jan. 13 episode “The Good Samaritan Killer” today.

The pictures feature Red attending Luli’s (Deborah S. Craig) cremation, followed by what looks like his scattering of her ashes in the sea.

Elsewhere, Red and Dembe have a tense conversation (is it an interrogation? Note the gun on the table between them.) with FBI techie Aram (Amir Arison), who was responsible for aiding Liz during the lockdown.

Catch the next episode Monday, January 13 on NBC (10-11 p.m. ET).
