"The Blacklist" Season 3 will finally return this Thursday after almost over a month's break. The NBC series went on a short hiatus after airing Episode 16, "The Caretaker," Feb. 25. And now, fans can watch episode 17, "Mr Solomon" April 7, which will be the first of the two-part special.
In episode 16, we saw things didn't go quite well between Liz and Red as she discovered that Red was hiding details about her mother's survival. She came out clearly that she wants to cut all ties with him. "The Caretaker" ended with Tom telling Liz that he is a changed man and that he wanted to start a family with her. The latest episode will now see the repercussions of what ever happened in episode 16.
In episode 17, Red will get in action and will be seen stopping two things. The synopsis of "Mr Solomon" teases that Red will be stopping the thieves from getting hold of the tactical nuclear weapon and second will also stop Liz from marrying Tom.
The promo of the upcoming episode shows Red trying to convince Liz to call of the wedding because he feels that men like Tom never change and so, he tells her that he is not the man she thinks he is. But, it looks like Liz still goes ahead with her decision as she is seen walking down the aisle. But it is speculated that Liz and tom make a decision that could change their relationship forever.
At the end of the clip, we see Red along with armed men, while words "Red Wedding" flash on the screen. A voiceover is heard saying, "Till death do they part" and Liz is seen crying, before the video fades out.
The promo photos too show Tom digging a grave to bury a dead body, which hints that Red could be telling the truth and that Tom could, possibly, still be a spy.
The plot synopsis for "Mr Solomon" (via TV Guide) reads: "Part 1 of 2. Thieves target a tactical nuclear weapon, so the team races to stop them and prevent a nuclear disaster. Meanwhile, a decision could alter Tom and Liz's relationship forever."
"The Blacklist" Season 3 episode 17, titled "Mr Solomon," will be aired this Thursday April 7, at 9 p.m. on NBC.
