We’re heading closer to the finale, and one thing we learned that things could change in Elizabeth Keen’s favor in The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 18. Well, in the NBC world, nothing seems to stay the same for quite a long time, and it appears to be the case in The Blacklist Season 8. If we consider all the aspects that Liz has done to date, it doesn’t seem there’s a chance she could ever return to the Task Force. But the new evidence might appear to help Liz in her mission. Let’s see how?
The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 18: Precap And Storyline
The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 18, titled “The Protean,” will focus on some extreme changes in Red’s life. However, the show has yet to release the official trailer of its 18th episode. Still, we can expect that Liz would return to work once again with her one-time FBI colleagues. Well, there are series of possibilities which could change everyone’s viewpoint. The last we learned that the Task Force willing to work with Liz like she uncovers the truth behind N13.
Meanwhile, they can also go to any extent to take down Townsend, just like Red. But it doesn’t mean they are on the same page with Liz and Red. However, the team does know that Red is hiding something from them, and instead of helping him in his mission, they turn to Liz, believing her theories were right. Is it? Now, everything seems to get more twisted than this season began.
The episode’s official synopsis reads as, “The Protean: The Task Force springs into action to stop an elusive assassin on Liz’s trail.”
The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 18: Can The Task Force Trust Liz?
Liz appeared to work with Townsend to uncover the true face of Red. However, while taking Red down, she turned down the Task Force several times. Even she learned that her mother Katarina isn’t a good person to trust. Yet Liz seems to take her advice to join hands with Townsend, although he’s running a criminal group. But this one thing could change the Task Force’s perspective. As we know, Ressler suspects that Red’s cheating Cooper.
Red seems to sell false bills of some goods to Cooper, which Ressler already discovered. Now soon, Liz’s theories on Red starting to make sense, and this realization might change Ressler’s mind. So if Ressler can convince the other team members, then chances are high that the entire Task Force would reunite with Liz in her mission. Perhaps Copper should stay in the right mind state before making a tough decision.
