A highly articulate, erudite and intelligent businessman and mastermind, "Red" Reddington, has allegedly been on the "10 Most Wanted List" of various U.S. law enforcement agencies for over 20 years. The legend is that Red is as elusive as he is clever, controlling a labyrinth of creative enterprises, coupled with uncanny ability to gather and finesse information at the drop of a hat. On the first day at FBI for a new female profiler fresh out of Quantico, Red offers to bandy wits with the FBI. Red promises to deliver various criminals and plots previously unknown to any branch of law enforcement... and all Red requests in return is to choose his muse.
Elizabeth Keen lives a happy live with her husband Tom. They are even planning to adopt a baby. Elizabeth wants to go to her new job at the FBI when she is picked up by them and driven to a black-site to meet Raymond Reddingt on, a master criminal who vanished a long time ago and came back as the concierge of crime. After eluding capture for decades, he turns himself in, but only agrees to speak to Elizabeth Keen. He wants to help the FBI capture dangerous criminals, some of them unknown to the FBI. A task force is created. However, there remains some questions. What is Reddington's connection to Elizabeth? Why does he want to solve cases with the FBI? Is Elizabeth's husband Tom who he pretends to be? These questions are slowly resolved when the team go through people on Reddington's Blacklist.

[b]"The Blacklist" - "Frederick Barnes" - Nov. 4, 2013[/b Tonight's Blacklister: Frederick Barnes, #47 We open on the subway. A mild-mannered man enters with a metallic briefcase. A woman compliments him on his hat. He eyes other people on the subway. She notes she bought a similar one for her dad and he asks the last time she saw him. She says Sunday at church. He says that's good. He gets off at the next stop and leaves his briefcase. The woman tries to catch him and give it to him but he walks off. He hits a button and a smoke emits from the briefcase. Everyone begins coughing and pounding on the window as black veins show on their faces. Liz and Tom are remodeling, she has sample colors on the dining room walls and they are picking. She wants to switch up the room because of the attack in the box in the floor. She apologizes for doubting him and them. He says their past it and are fine. Ressler calls her and tells her to turn on the TV to the news of the subway chemical bombing. She heads down. 37 people died. Their tech guy shows surveillance of the man leaving the station. Meera reports there was zero chatter about the guy. Red shows up and tells them the man was Frederick Barnes, a former research scientist who developed chemical weapons. He's a savant of "government sanctioned mass killing." Several years back he went rogue as a free agent on the open market, and he has the tools and know-how to kills thousands of people at once. He was normally the designer, not the delivery agent so they need to figure out why since this makes him the most dangerous man in the world. They go to the morgue and the doctor says they all died of a very rare disease that usually takes a decade to kill and the chemicals made it happen in two minutes. It turns out someone was intentionally spreading the disease. Barnes has access to strontium 90 which weaponized the disease and is radioactive toxic and highly regulated and Red says only a handful of people can get their hands on it. He happens to know a three of them. Two are dead. Cooper wants a name. Red doesn't give it but says he has a meeting with the guy and has to catch a plane. Red invites Liz along for the ride to Cuba and have a therapy session on the way. She demurs in order to talk to Barnes' old research partner. Red says he's sorry she's upset with him. He says it's easier to blame him for framing Tom than realize what he really is. She says Tom is a fourth grade teacher and that's the end of the story. Red says it is very much not but they need to find a way to make up because doing this isn't as much fun when she's mad at him. They head in their separate directions. Liz and Ressler go to see the research partner, Mrs. Forrester in Bethesda. She says he was a brilliant and extremely obsessive and dedicated researcher. They hadn't spoken in five years. Her son Ethan enters and they notice prominent veins on the boys' body like the victims. Liz asks if he the boy has the rare disease that Barnes weaponized. Liz tells her to stop holding back if she is. She says Barnes is Ethan's father. When he found out the boy had the disease he worked hard to figure out how to help him but couldn't get research funding because the disease is too rare. Liz figures that's why Barnes is killing people: the more who die of it the more likely he won't be ignored for research. They figure he's just getting started. Red goes to see his contact in Havana. He asks for 12 kilos of strontium 90. He needs it now but his buyer begs off and Red puts a bug on his table. He says he should reach out to his most recent client and offer him 10 million to buy some back with a hefty fee for him. He and Dembe take off and wait for his contact to call Barnes. He does and the bug picks it up and they trace the call to Arlington,VA. He calls Liz with Barnes' location. We cut to Barnes walking into a courthouse with a similar briefcase to the subway bomb. He pretends he's showing up for jury duty. He drops the briefcase and leaves. Liz and Ressler rush in as Barnes is sealing the door shut. A fire alarm goes off. Barnes hits the button and takes off with the others leaving the building. The people in the courtroom start coughing and dying. The fireman show up and Ressler grabs an oxygen tank and gas marks and tells them to vamoose. He enters the room and the people are already dead. Except one woman who he brings out, somehow unscathed. Liz chases down Barnes. He grabs a security guard as a hostage. They stand off she drops her gun. He shoots out the courthouse windows and gets away. Red's right hand woman Lou goes and buys a house for Red. She offers the realtor double the asking price, in cash. The woman who survived is in the hospital with a poor prognosis. They all head back to HQ and Meera has figured out that Barnes wants to kill a large sample of types of people either for some sort of demonstration or experiment regarding the disease. Cooper pulls Liz aside and gives her hard time for giving up her gun during the hostage situation. That's not protocol and Cooper says she'll be under review and may be sanctioned. She says it was a judgement call. Ressler ratted her out. He says she's unqualified to be in the field and says he would've taken the shot since letting one hostage die could've saved hundreds or thousands of lives. The survivor from the courthouse is being reassured by the doctor, who takes her blood sample down the hall as Barnes, dresses as an order enters her room. He changes her IV bag. He smiles at her as she falls asleep. He opens a kit with some scary looking instruments in it. Red is hiding back from Cuba and Liz tells him that Barnes got away. She asks for help and he hangs up on her. She calls him back. She asks for his help again and says please. He says that she should assume that Barnes knows there is a survivor as well and has probably visited her. Liz and Meera go to her room and discover that he took her bone marrow since she was clearly immune to the disease. We see as he takes her marrow and blood to synthesize an antidote and go "cure" his son. They call his old research partner and lover to warn her but it's too late, Barnes is there. She leaves the phone connection open so Liz can hear. He confesses about the subway. She tries to kick him out but he says he's doing what he has to do. Ethan comes in and Barnes says he's hear to help him and he needs him to trust him. Ethan takes off running to his room. Barnes gives chase. Liz and Meera pull up. Barnes ethers Ethan and sedates him. Liz and Meera bust in. Before he can give the shot, Liz draws down on him. She tells him that it's just an experiment. Barnes says he'll die anyway and that this is the only chance he'll ever have and he doesn't think Liz will stop him. He's wrong. She shoots him. Red shows up in the aftermath at the house. She confirms Barnes is dead. Red says he understands that Barnes is evil but a man willing to burn down the world to protect the person he loves most is a man he can understand. She wonders if that's meant to be directed at her. He says "aren't you presumptuous?" She says she doesn't need his protection. He says maybe not. She says she does need him to do this job and that she does appreciate what he does for the bureau. She says at work they're partners but that's where the relationship ends, she doesn't want him in her personal life. He says the problem with lines in the sand is how quickly they can disappear. She may not like him or understand him but he's there to answer questions she doesn't even know she has yet. He says if that doesn't matter to her he can disappear. He says he won't beg her for the privilege of helping her. He says to tell him to go. She doesn't. He says he'll see her tomorrow. Back at HQ he commends her for the difficult call she made with Barnes. She says he was right, letting one person die is worth saving thousands. She heads home ot find Tom eating Chinese on the dining room floor. He asks if she's having a long day. She says he has no idea. He has set up the room just like their first night in the apartment, to help her realize that the two of them is all they need. They start making out and get it on on the dining room floor. Red goes to visit the house he bought. He enters and says he remembers it being bigger. He says he raised his family in this house. Lou says it's lovely. He says it's not, but it used to be. He goes to a closet and looks at the marks of a child growing on the wall. He envisions a little girl playing in the backyard. He is pensive. Dembe comes up from the basement and says it's time to go. Red asks if he prepared everything the way he asked. Dembe nods. They leave. Lou says the place must hold a lot of memories for him. He says he spends everyday trying to forget what happened here and this should help. They drive away and the house blows up.

11The Good Samaritan
13 Jan 2014Description ▼
A mom named Karen drops her son off at a birthday party at a kids party place. A man introduces himself to her as uncle of one of the kids. He tries to make small talk, and offers her punch, which she accepts. She has to leave to pick up her other kid. She gets in her car, then gets out and passes out. When she wakes up, the man is looming over her. He tells her she was drugged and she's not going to be OK. He has her strapped to an operating table with all sorts of surgical tools hanging from the wall. He examines a chart then cheerfully tells her that first he's going to collapse her lung, then break her clavicle. He gets started. Later, he calls 911 and reports "I've done it again." He walks away, leaving Karen bleeding in her minivan by the phone. At home, Tom is freaked out by all the surveillance put in place until the Post Office determines who the leak is. He tells Liz he has a job interview this afternoon -- in Lincoln, Nebraska.She knows they need to talk, but she gets called in to work. The Good Samaritan is 106 on the Blacklist. She makes a case to Cooper to work the Good Samaritan case, even though he wants Moblie Psych to handle it. But it's her old case and therefore personal, which she thinks means Red might reach out. Liz is called for her interview. The whole team is questioned. Watching the interviews, Diane Fowler thinks it's a mistake to put Keen back on the street. Later, Liz explains to Ressler that the Good Samaritan got his name because he never kills his victims, he always calls 911 and gives the paramedics a chance to save them. That's how he got his name. They never had any luck figuring out how he chooses his victims. Liz and Ressler arrive at the hospital to meet with Karen's husband. Ressler keeps her son Michael company. Michael asks if his dad is in trouble -- he's a bookie. He asks about Ressler's leg and volunteers he broke his collarbone once. He doesn't ask about his mom. Karen's husband IDs her body in the morgue. Meanwhile, Red ensures Luli's ashes are transferred properly as he remembers watching her be killed in the attack on the Post Office. He tracks down a man and demands information about the man with the apple. Red takes the man to his car to interrogate him. The man insists he never met his boss and they all had individual jobs. Red goes to the next person, the EMT who pulled the chip from his neck. She says she was told she'd only have four minutes to remove it and was paid cash. She was picked up in an ambulance and didn't know where she was going. Next, Red goes to the doctor who was hired to supply the injections and monitor his vital signs. They were paid in $5s and $10s. Red finishes questioning them. Then we see each of their dead bodies. Liz gets home to see a reassuring note from Tom. Red calls. He read about the Good Samaritan and wants to help. Liz tells him one of the Samaritan's first victims died in her arms and she's stumped by a lack of pattern. Red suggests it's about the torture, and maybe it's tailored to each of his victims, suggesting the attacks are about the victims, not the Samaritan. He hangs up before she can ask more. After going back to the office and reviewing the files, Liz calls in Ressler and Meera. She tells them that Karen's son Michael had a long history of injuries -- he was abused. And the killer gave every one of those injuries to Karen. Cooper calls Meera aside and tells her she's been cleared. He asks her to look into bank accounts and she tells him Red called Liz. Red goes into a club and shoots two goons to talk to Theodore, whom he shoots in the leg. He knows Theodore funnels money through his clubs and pays in $10s because he's too cheap to get clean cash. He wants to know about his banker. When Teddy won't talk, he douses him in vodka and lights a cigar. Teddy tells him the money was wired to London office of the Gstaad bank. Having gotten the information he needs, Red pours more vodka and sticks the lit cigar in Teddy's mouth. Red waits. "Oh my god, the suspense is killing me," Red says, then he picks up a gun and shoots him. Ressler and Liz talk to Michael with his dad there. He tells them his mom hurt him. They decide to look into relatives of past victims, thinking he's a vigilante killer targeting abusers. At home with his wheelchair-bound mother, the Good Samaritan brushes her hair and leaves her facing the TV. He heads to work as an ER nurse. He treats a woman named Melissa with a long history of injuries. He notices her husband lurking nearby and that she's scared of him. Red drops in on Henry. "There's been a nasty bit of business. Blood spilled, lives lost, a modicum of torture. Words don't fully describe. I know who's responsible, I know who carried it out. To finish the job, I'll need all of your wire and transfer records," Red says. He doesn't entertain Henry's denials for a moment, and tells Henry that he'll be back tomorrow. At the office, Meera reports that one of the accounts was used to wire funds from Gstaad to Manhattan. It's under an alias, but they have the passport of the account holder -- it's Aram Mojtabai. Meera leads a team of agents to Aram's house, but he's not there. Instead, Aram is taken somewhere with a bag over his head and when it's removed he finds he's face to face with Red. Red tells him to transfer $5 million from an account into Red's own and gives him two minutes, the time it takes Red to disassemble and reassemble a Colt.45, after which point he'll shoot Aram. Aram types as Red finishes putting his gun back together. Aram finishes just in time then explains how he converted the money into Bitcoin and is sure the transaction is untraceable. Red hands Aram a bullet as a souvenir and announces he's innocent. He tells Aram about the transfer and the account set up in Aram's name -- he's being framed as a mole. "You're obviously far too clever to have accepted payment that was so easily traceable," Red says. Aram realizes Red isn't going to kill him."No, I'm going to find somebody else, and kill them," Red says. The Good Samaritan sits in a meeting for abusers and shares about his mother abusing him. Melissa's abuser is in the meeting. The Samaritan says he reconciled with his mother with a "home remedy" that allows them to be closer. After the meeting, he introduces himself to Melissa's husband, George. Henry comes home and sees Red's black hat on the hook. Red has introduced himself to Henry's wife as an old college pal and he's staying for dinner. He hugs Henry hello and whispers: "I know what you've done." Henry goes to wash up and calls someone to tell them Red is in his house. Back at the table, Janice serves dinner, but Red knows the police are coming. Red has accounted for everyone but one person involved and he asks Henry -- then calls him out for giving him the wire transfer leading to Aram, a patsy. He shoots Henry in the knee to make him talk. Janice freaks out."Janice, if you don't stop yelling, I'm going to put you in the closet," Red says, and then he does. Henry talks: Newton Phillips. Red apologizes for missing dinner and leaves. Back home, the Samaritan gets his mother and announces they have another guest. He wheels her into his shed, where George is strapped to his table. Back at the office, Liz has connected family members of victims as abuse victims. They find nurse Karl Hoffman treated all of them at different hospitals. Liz and Ressler head to the hospital, where they learn Melissa was the only person Karl saw that day with a broken bone. Back at home, Karl tells George that he realized his mother enjoyed hurting him. He believes the only way the abuser can know what his abuser goes through is to experience it himself. He forces his mother to watch. Liz and Ressler interview Melissa, who defends George, and says he went to a group meeting just today. At the meeting, someone tells them about seeing George with a man -- he IDs Karl. He mentions that Karl talked about his mother abusing him. They realize he's taking back control in the place where he was abused -- his childhood home. Back in his shed, Karl has detached George's retina and is moving on to replicate the concussion he gave Melissa. He's about to whack George with a hammer when Liz comes in. When he won't drop it and starts to swing, she shoots him. At the hospital, Liz warns George that if he hurts his wife again, she'll do what she probably should have let Karl do. At the office, a nervous Aram is brought in with a file from Red. He gives it to Cooper. "Who the hell is Newton Phillips?" Cooper says. Red dumps out Luli's ashes while a man waits for him. Red calls to him, "Newton." "If you had come to me I could have helped you. We could have avoided all of this," Red says. Newton says they threatened his family. Red promises to take care of his family. Newton asks that Red make it look like an accident for his wife's sake. Red tells Newton to look out at the water, then he suffocates him with a plastic bag. Diane Fowler meets with her superiors, including Fitch, and tells him they have identified the mole, but she still won't tell them who it is because it would compromise their asset. Red drops in on Liz at home."Does this mean you're back?" He tells her his house is clean, but he doesn't think hers is -- the incursion couldn't have taken place without help from someone on the inside. They're back where they started. And he brought her the next name on the Blacklist.

13The Cyprus Agency
27 Jan 2014Description ▼
A woman wanders the streets, barefoot and wrapped in a blanket. She babbles that someone took her baby. She finds a cop and starts trying to ask for help, but then a man comes up and tells the cop she's his sister and she's confused. The cop turns to radio for help but the man comes up behind him and shoots him in the back, then he shoots the woman. The Cyprus Agency, No. 64 At home, Liz and Tom look at a 3-D ultrasound of Julia's baby. She tells Tom she wants to stay home for a little while when the baby comes. Later, Liz meets with Red in the church. He tells her the next name on the Blacklist: The Cyprus Adoption Agency. She doesn't think it's a coincidence he's choosing this target when she's about to adopt, but he assures her life is full of little ironies. At the Agency, a couple is allowed to select all the genetic and hereditary traits of their child. Mr. Mallory, the CEO, introduce Ted Caldwell, their lawyer. Red tells Liz the Agency doesn't adopt babies, they steal them. They use a forger, one of Red's best. Liz meets with the soon-to-be parents of the most recently "adopted" boy, David and Wendy Rolland. Liz breaks the news that the baby they're expecting to bring home in the next two weeks won't be theirs. They offer to help. Later, the Rollands meet with Ted Caldwell, as Liz and Ressler stake out the coffee shop. David Dolland nervously asks for more information about the child. Caldwell tells them to talk to an adoption consultant with the agency. Caldwell steps outside to make a call, saying he thinks something is wrong. Liz and Ressler interrupt and identify themselves. Caldwell immediately gets spooked. When Liz mentions real parents, Caldwell says she has no idea. Caldwell backs into traffic, scared, and is quickly flattened by a bus. Red checks in with Ted Grimley, who's been with Meera, trying to get answers. Grimley reports that Meera is telling the truth. She tells him she was ordered by someone to open bidding for building improvements, leaking confidential building design info (the burned scrap of paper Red's nerds found), but she doesn't know by whom. She suggests he let her go so she can find out who gave the order, because they both want the same thing. At the agency, Mallory assures Liz and Ressler that they've done nothing wrong and suggests if there was an issue it was by their overseas partners. He volunteers any help he can offer. Back at the office, Liz reports Cyprus had 27 infant adoptions last year, which is a lot. But she can't find any records of the birth parents. They start DNA tests on the children and begin searching international missing children files. Liz wants to talk to Cooper about maternity leave, but is interrupted when Meera shows up late. She says she was up all night with her daughter, which prompts Cooper to remind her the job is more important. Liz doesn't ask him for time off. Liz, Ressler and Meera go get DNA swabs from the kids, many of whom are toddlers. Liz meets with Red and tells him this is her last case for awhile. None of the DNA matched to missing children. "You're so linear," Red says. He asks her to think who wouldn't report a child missing -- criminals. He suggests she run the DNA again and match it against relatives of criminal. Red tells Liz she's reaching a "point of no return" with Tom if she goes through with the adoption and she should stop if she has any doubts. She doesn't. Back at the office, they get five DNA hits and five mothers of 12 of the 27 children. The women themselves are missing. They were all in college when they disappeared, all are well educated. At the others work the case, Meera looks through Cooper's briefcase and takes his badge. They realize three of the women gave birth after they were abducted. Meera takes Cooper's badge and uses it to access classified files. Aram goes through Ted Caldwell's computer and finds a dossier on a woman named Charlotte Patterson, a sophomore at Georgetown. In a parking garage, the killer from the opening flips through the file on Charlotte and closes in on her car. Ressler and Liz race to the school to get to Charlotte before she leaves campus. The killer pulls up alongside Charlotte's car and waits. He jumps out and grabs her, yanking her into his van just before Liz and Ressler arrive. He knocks over Ressler with his van and pulls away as Liz shoots at him. The killer meets with Mallory, who is angry that he went ahead with the abduction. The kidnapper insists he had orders from Caldwell. Charlotte is sedated in the back of his van. Mallory shoots the kidnapper. Back at the office, they have no paper trail linking Caldwell or Mallory to anything. Back at the office, Mallory meets with a doctor, who assures him there's no link to his clinic. Out in the woods, a man finds Kate Ellison's body. The coroner tells Liz and Ressler that Kate was in an induced coma for all the time she was missing. She has no muscle tone and was fed through a tube, and she's given birth several times. She was given prenatal care despite being sedated. Aram calls Liz, he discovered that Owen Mallory was an alias. Liz and Ressler go talk to the Lassiters, he was posing as their son.But the Lassiters tell them Mallory was their son, by the name of Michael Shaw. They adopted him out of foster care when he was seven-years-old. He was with them for 16 months, but had severe attachment disorder. He began threatening to hurt himself and them and the doctors put him back in foster care. Mrs. Lassiter tells Liz they blame themselves, their marriage was troubled and they weren't "equipped for a child." Meera meets with Red covertly, bringing him files bearing someone's signature. He looks it over then tells her their business is done. Red takes Liz to a nice mansion on a cul-de-sac. She wants help tracking the sedative used on the women. Red tells her the house isn't what it seems and she's about to meet one of the nicest drug dealers east of Cleveland. Inside, there's a house party going on. Red introduces Liz to a college-aged kid named Russell, who knows all about the sedative hydroxapam, but says no one uses it anymore because it's too powerful. He shows Red that only three pharmacies nearby carry it and of those, only eight doctors wrote prescriptions for it -- seven sleep therapists and one fertility doctor. Liz and Ressler head to Dr. Hadley's Galatea Fertility Clinic. Mallory is there with him and cautions the receptionist to just get rid of them. Instead, when Liz and Ressler don't leave, the man at the desk pulls a gun. Ressler disarms and cuffs him then goes looking for Hadley. He finds him in a lab reaching for a gun, and Ressler shoots him several times. Liz enters a restricted area with plastic sheeting draped everywhere and finds women lying in beds, sedated and pregnant. There are more than a dozen of them. Liz is taking in the disturbing scene with Mallory sneaks up behind her and knocks her over with a hospital bed. He knocks her down and knocks her gun away. He dumps one of the sedated women from her bed onto Liz and gets to her gun. He's about to fire when Ressler arrives and shoots Mallory in the arm. Later, Cooper and a team are on the scene. There were 22 women, all unhurt. There is an in vitro clinic on site and the women's eggs were harvested. In interrogation, Liz links Owen Mallory to Michael Shaw, his childhood name. Mallory says the Lassiters "returned" him as a child because they didn't want a child, they wanted an accessory. "My legacy is complete, and there's nothing you can do to change that," he says. Liz realizes he's the father of all the children. "A part of me is thriving in every home that has my child," he says. Liz comes home to see the ultrasound. She wipes away tears and takes Tom's hands. "I can't do it," she tells him. "It's us. I don't know what's wrong, I don't understand it, but something his not right," she says. She admits to having doubts that they might be "broken." Red sneaks into Diane's house in the middle of the night and tells her he knows. "You signed a directive ordering a mandatory security upgrade of the Post Office. That's how you got the blueprints into enemy hands. You're the dirty rat, Diane," he says. She tells him she signed the directive for his protection. She tells him they came into the Post Office to make a point, but he'll never get away with hurting her. She's threatening him when he shoots her in the stomach. "You can't shoot me!" she says.Red tells her he has an agreement with Fitch, but not with her. She tells him she knows the truth about that night, about what happened to his family. He desperately wants to know, but says if she knows the truth, then somebody else does, too.He shoots her several more times, killing her. Liz sits alone at home and cries. Tom goes out with Jolene, the substitute. At the office, Cooper tells Meera he hates working with Red, but they never would have caught all these people without him. He tells her to go home. At Diane's house, Red welcomes his cleaner to fix the scene.
