Liz (Megan Boone) is back from her "vacation" of murdering a bunch of thugs in Alaska, and now it's time to begin the hunt for the man (or men) who killed Tom (Ryan Eggold). When The Blacklist returns Wednesday, Liz begins by getting scoop from the man who would know best: her dad Red (James Spader).
Unfortunately, Red's info for Liz means that Liz is back to square one since he believes Tom's killers were hired by someone else. Great, now new dark Liz is going to have to kill EVERYONE.
Moments later, Liz reunites with Samar (Mozhan Marno) and things do not go well between them. When Liz asks how Samar and Aram are doing, Samar says they're "boring, blissful, domestic," to which Liz replies practically through gritted teeth, "I'm so happy for you." Obviously Liz still feels the sting of Tom's death, and doesn't appreciate the insensitivity of Samar now that she's a widow. But when Samar asks how Agnes is, hoo boy, that's when Liz is like, "BYE."
I like this new Liz!
