For most of "The Blacklist" season 3, Liz has been running away from law. However, her name was finally cleared in season 3 episode 10 when Red proved once again that Liz can depend on him.
A normal, not to mention, peaceful life awaits the Blacklister but will her journey back to normalcy be easy? Throughout season 3, Liz has had to confront situations that are both trying and dangerous, making it the new normal. In the face of her past experiences, how will Liz cope with the changes?
The previous episode revealed that Liz's name has been exonerated from all the crimes she is supposed to have committed, except the involuntary manslaughter charge levelled against her. In addition to this, she had to give up her FBI credentials.
According to Executive producer Jon Bokenkamp, Liz's life is tinged with grayness now that she is no longer an FBI agent. The showrunner told in an interview that she will struggle to face her new reality as a convict. "She's not necessarily respected by a lot of law enforcement. She's probably incredibly respected by some criminals," Bokenkamp added.
Nevertheless, we predict that this plotline will be explored towards the end of season 3. According to the synopsis for season 3 episode 11, Liz has to figure out if the person she's been talking to is indeed Redmayne Reddington.
In the promo for the upcoming episode, a man who appears to be detained for false reasons tells Reddington that Red is actually an impostor. At this point, Red let out a mirthless laugh, but Liz looks utterly baffled.
Season 3 episode 11's synopsis, released via Carter Matt, reads:
"With her name finally cleared, Liz (Megan Boone) attempts to reclaim her former life. Red (James Spader) works with the task force to infiltrate an assembly of high-level criminals at large in a rare, risky opportunity to capture the heads of the world's most lethal organized crime syndicates."
"The Blacklist" season 3 episode 11 titled "Mr. Gregory Devry" airs on Thursday, 21 January at 9pm on NBC. You can live stream the full episode via NBC Live.
