Although The Cabal was outwitted by Red (James Spader) and his team in the previous episode, the cartel and the CIA director Kotsiopulos (David Strathairn) at the helm, will ensure that she is dead. This is mostly because The Cabal knows that Liz might spill the information she possesses and once she informs the court about the corrupt government officials, it could turn disastrous for the cartel. In particular, the Director may lose everything, and if season 3 episode 9 was any indicator of his state of mind, it is safe to say that he is desperate.

However, the synopsis indicates that Red will undertake a mission to stop The Cabal from carrying out its plan to kill Liz. In the promo for the upcoming episode, Red is seen with Aram (Amir Arison) and Samar (Mozhan Marno), who helped recover the package from FBI in the previous episode. In the promo, the parcel plays a central role in their mission to save Liz.

In the previous episode, it was revealed that the package included a device to print money and Red traded this with his sources in Venezuela for a favour. However, what favour did he ask for? This will be answered in episode 10.

A Christian Today report claims that several people join Red as he carries out his plan. This includes Tom (Ryan Eggold), Cooper (Harry Lennix), and Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff).

In the video clip for season 3 episode 10, Red states that a "specific attack" must be carried out. Furthermore, Red's sources in Venezuela work on exonerating Liz.

In the promo, an anxious Liz says that she is going to get killed "today" and the next scene includes a gunman who shoots her and her escorts.

The synopsis for season 3 episode 10 reads:

Conclusion. The Cabal prepares to assassinate Liz, triggering Red's call to the task force to outmanoeuvre the Cabal in a bid to exonerate her. Also: Red delivers a final ultimatum.

"The Blacklist" season 3 episode 10 titled "The Director: Conclusion" will be aired on Thursday, 14 January at 9pm on NBC.
