The Blacklist - S08E14 - Misere

Original air date: April 23, 2021

This episode recaps the previous ten episodes. Liz sets her sights on taking down Reddington once and for all. Liz begins her journey by teaming up with Reddington’s worst enemies Townsend. She begins to have doubts because she thinks that Townsend might be taking things too far after she gets wind of Reddington’s whereabouts and his new love interest. All at the same time Liz begins to experience visions of Mr. Kaplan guiding her to the path to Reddington’s downfall.

THREE MONTHS AGO

♪♪

SKIP: You okay?

Mm.

Haven’t slept all night.

Did you connect with Esi?

I did. Uh, good news and bad news. Good news is Esi made contact with the Fribourg Confidence. They’ve agreed to extract the drive from Reddington’s safe deposit box at Key Atlantic.

Once they get the drive, have Esi deliver it to Cooper. If the intel on that drive can help prove Reddington is N-13, Cooper should know. And the bad news?

72 hours ago, you were an FBI agent. Now you’re on the run from the very same people you used to work for. What exactly is our plan?

We see Mr. French.

I don’t know who that is.

My mother spent almost 30 years running from Neville Townsend. The only way she survived was through a network of resources that Mr. French helped her build. He was her guardian angel. I found his contact in her personal effects. He says he can help.

So we’re not starting flat-footed.

[CHUCKLING] No. We’re starting with one of the men my mother trusted the most.

Something’s happened. Follow me.

♪♪

Two weeks ago, Phillip went to Stockholm on business. Said he’d be two days. Two days passed, and he never returned. I called. No response. A few days later, Phillip phoned. He said he was in Washington. He said something had happened and that it wasn’t safe for me in the house. He told me there was a key taped to the bottom of his printer. It unlocked this apartment, which I didn’t even know he had. The only thing Phillip would say about his situation was that the daughter of a client was in trouble. I assume you’re the daughter.

Mrs. French, your husband, what did he tell you he does for a living?

Phillip was a recruiter for a data-management firm, but that was a lie, too, wasn’t it?

I’m afraid so.

Do you believe he’s alive?

I have no idea.


Reddington’s behind this. He’s not satisfied killing my mother. He has to make sure I have no access to any of her resources.

O-Okay. Slow down. W-We have money.

We need more than money, Skip. We need assets. Mr. French was gonna introduce me to the people my mother trusted. This woman doesn’t know anything.

Yeah, but w-we know nothing about her.

We know she’s scared and can’t go home. Which is why we’re not going to abandon her.


LIZ: Here’s my number. If you hear from your husband, if he reaches out, if you need anything at all. I know you have no reason to trust me, but I am on your husband’s side.

Where will you go?

I don’t know. But what I do know is I’m gonna do everything in my power to get your husband back and to keep you safe.

Mom, I’m tired.

I know, honey. We’re gonna go soon.

Why don’t you stay here?

Oh, we…

There’s plenty of room. You and Agnes can take the room upstairs. Your… Your friend can have the sofa. Unless you have some place else to go.

That’s very kind of you. We’re gonna stay with our friend, Agnes.

Can you read me a story?

Oh, I can’t, honey. We didn’t bring any of our books.

What if I tell you a story?

What kind of story?

A funny one. About a girl and her friend and the sleepover they have in a strawberry cake factory.

That sounds awesome!

I’ll get your pajamas.

Come.

Thank you.

But if you’ve learned anything from my mistakes, it’s that you can’t show weakness. You have to fight like Reddington, be every bit as fierce and cross whatever line it takes.

Skip. Wake up!

What? What?

I know what we gotta do.

Yeah, you mean sleep?

We’re gonna take down Reddington by teaming up with the man he hates the most.


This is insane. Neville Townsend spent 30 years trying to hunt and kill your mother. Now… Now you want him to be our partner?

We have a common enemy.

Yeah, Townsend doesn’t know that Reddington’s N-13, okay? He thinks your mother’s the one that betrayed him, and he thinks she’s dead. Why poke the bear?

Because if he knew the truth, if he knew that Reddington killed his family and framed my mother, he’d hate him as much as I do. Neville Townsend’s the one man other than Reddington who has the power and resources to really see this through.

Even if I agreed to this… idea, we have no idea how to find him?

His wife and children are dead, but not his sister. Her name is Mary Bremmer. She’s one of the very few people in Townsend’s life that my mother was able to identify. If we could get to her, if we could win her trust, she might be able to put us in touch with Townsend.

You really need to go back to bed.

Skip, I know how to make this work. Ask me how we recruit her.

I’m not gonna ask you that. [GRUNTS]

♪♪

How do we recruit her?

With the help of criminals. And I know a lot of criminals. Before we do anything, we need a network in place.

So, how long did you serve?

Two tours. Went private after that.

We start with protection. People we vet.

And you ran reconnaissance planes?

As well as security detail. Sort of go where I’m needed.

And at the same time, we need papers. All of us. Identities with backgrounds, travel histories, tax records, the works.

♪ I need a hit ♪

Okay, wait. Go back to Townsend. You said we get to him through his sister. How the hell is that supposed to work?

Well, first, we have to find her. There’s a bounty hunter out of Bosnia, Adin Markovic. He’s supposed to be the best of the best. We find him, then he finds Bremmer.

He hopes you’re happy with the results and would like to discuss his payment.

SKIP: Liz, Bremmer’s a chemical-weapons dealer. She doesn’t trust anyone. Why would she trust, let alone agree, to help us?

She won’t. Which is why we have to earn her trust. I was thinking of saving her life.

Is it in jeopardy?

Not that I know of, but it will be. What do you know about Alban Veseli, The Freelancer? He’s the first criminal our Task Force put away. He’s been rotting in a hole for seven years.

Seven years ago, Veseli derailed a passenger train by making it hit a curve too fast.

I thought we’d use some of Reddington’s money, hire him a new lawyer, someone we own.

Who the hell are you?

I don’t think you got a fair trial.

LIZ: The lawyer files an appeal, claims that the court violated his client’s 6th Amendment right to confront his accuser, who just so happens to be the FBI’s confidential source, Raymond Reddington.

You’re telling me the United States Government is willingly in business with Raymond Reddington?

SKIP: Okay, but the Feds are never gonna put Reddington into a courtroom.

I’m a fugitive, so I’m not gonna show up in court, either.

I ordered Agent Keen to appear. She didn’t.

So, if the case agent doesn’t show and the confidential source doesn’t show, the judge would be… Well, to say the least, he’d be concerned.

JUDGE VELCHEK: Oh, I’m not concerned. I’m offended. I’m granting the defendant’s motion to withdraw his guilty plea, and I am forced to dismiss the charges against him.

Don’t do this.

You want to release a mass murderer in exchange for what?

Miss Keen arranged for your release because she requires your services.

What does she need me to do?

I want him to kill Mary Bremmer.

So you can save her.

We get The Freelancer out of jail. In exchange, he goes after Bremmer.

He’s never gonna kill Bremmer because we’re gonna grab her.

I like it. Except you told me that The Freelancer hides his assassinations by masking them as mass-casualty accidents.

There are 162 passengers on board, and he’ll kill everyone.

Wait. I thought The Freelancer was going after Reddington.

I’m gonna backchannel information through the Task Force and make sure no one gets hurt and The Freelancer goes back to prison where he belongs.

Go back to Bremmer. You pull her off the street, that woman ain’t gonna be happy.

I want to talk to her! Do you hear me?!

After I explain to her that I not only saved her life, plucked her out of the arms of the awaiting FBI, she might change her tune.

Mary. My people didn’t grab you to hurt you. They grabbed you in an effort to save your life.

In fact, she may even thank me by offering to make an introduction to her brother, Neville Townsend.

Bremmer says she’s thought about it. She’s willing to reach out to her brother, see if she can make an introduction.

[STATIC]

♪♪

Well, Miss… Keen. This is certainly unprecedented. Where’s Mary?

In FBI custody.

She took her, what, to hurt me?

Talk to me, Neville. I’m right here. I’m looking right at you.

Why did you take my sister?

Because I had no way to reach you. Taking your sister forced her to make contact, to negotiate her safe return… and to get this face-to-face meeting with you. I had nothing to do with today’s capture.

No? You’re an FBI agent.

Not anymore, I’m not. The FBI can’t help me. You can.

♪♪

KAPLAN: You’re doing well, Elizabeth. Stay strong. He’ll say yes.

I don’t know if I can do this. This animal hunted my mother.

Of course you can. You know that. What you don’t know is how ugly he really is. How vicious he can be. He’ll want to know you’re capable of doing what needs to get done. He’ll want to test you.

What do you mean, test?

What you’ve done, coming here like this, it’s so audacious. But if I were to even consider an alliance, I’d need to know, w-without question, that I can trust you.

You can trust me.

I hope so. Which is why I’m going to give you an opportunity to prove it.

What do you mean?

It means you’re going to earn my trust by killing my sister.

I just saved your sister. I’m not a murderer.

She knows too much. She’s made herself a liability.

She’s your sister.

You can’t beat Reddington without me. That’s why you’re here. You need me on your team. This is my price. Are you willing to pay it?

♪♪

KAPLAN: You have to do it.

I…

Reddington would in a heartbeat.

I can’t. I can’t.

He’d see it as nothing more than a transaction required to close a business relationship.

This is a woman’s life we’re talking about.

♪♪

KAPLAN: I know how difficult this is for you, but I also know what happens if you don’t see this through. I failed because I wasn’t willing to play by Raymond’s rules. You can’t make that same mistake. Dearie, you have to redefine who you are, what you are willing to become. If you have any hope of unseating Reddington, you’re going to have to become just as ruthless. So, either walk away now, or shove your feelings down and get it done with. Besides, she’s no angel. The woman brokers chemical weapons.

LIZ: Reddington is N-13.

So you say.

He framed my mother.

An assertion I want to believe, but need to prove. Elizabeth, we are not going to kill him without asking questions first about the Archive, what he plans to do with it. That is something I need to fully understand.

How did it happen? Your family.

Let’s not do this.

Is it true that’s why you don’t sleep? What did Reddington do to you? I know the Vory ran drugs through your ports. I know you paid the KBG to look the other way.

Elizabeth.

I know the documents N-13 stole detailed that cover-up. But what happened when that was exposed? What on earth could they have possibly done to you?

♪♪

My ports lined the pockets of some very powerful Russians. When our business was exposed, they lost not only careers, but their fortunes. The Vory knew the authorities had reached out to me. They were pressuring me to testify against them in exchange for immunity.

They made an example of you.

By… subjecting me to a fate worse than death.

They went after your family.

I was… I was asleep for most of it.

♪♪

Woke to the sound of my wife whimpering. When I got downstairs, my eldest was already gone. My youngest, he… was taking his last breaths. Their mother had been forced to watch the whole ordeal. Then I was forced to watch them slaughter her.

♪♪

I spent 30 years believing the documents your mother stole sparked the fire that burned my life to the ground, and every KGB informant and asset I can buy believes the same thing. But if you’re right, if Reddington is N-13, I need him to confirm it. I need to know he has the Archive, what he intends to do with it. I need to know his endgame. I need to know… why my family had to die.

He won’t talk.

We will kill him, Elizabeth.

He’s not afraid of death.

Perhaps not, but he will talk.

So, we, what? Grab him?

You help lure him out. Through a friend, someone he trusts.

And then we talk.

And then… we kill him.

We’re gonna need a familiar face to gain access. I think I know just the guy.


RUDDIGER: We talked about this.

I know, Ruddiger, but things have changed.

Nothing has changed.

I have a partner.

My position hasn’t changed. Raymond is my friend. He’s like a brother. He has seen me through two wives and four stints in rehab. I will never betray him.

Hear me out.

I am leaving.

Just please… I should never have come. I’m only here ’cause you tricked me into coming.

Ruddiger, please.

Piss off.

Don’t go out that door!

It’s not just me. Red’s people are not for sale.

Elizabeth insisted on talking to you first. I don’t like talk.

No! Elizabeth, what have you done?! Tell him to stop it! Stop! Stop!

Well, your other friend Ruddiger screwed up and we had to improvise, so put this on him.

Is he with Perillos?

That is not my business.

What do you mean he’s fine? I was told Perillos was working on him.

RED: Not everything you thought it would be, is it? This moment? You’ve waited for it… and somehow, it’s… dissatisfying.

It actually exceeds expectation.

I wasn’t talking to you. We know who my assassin really is. Don’t we, Elizabeth? It saddens me to bear witness to this moment in your life, this crossing of a Rubicon from which you can never get back. It may appear self-serving to suggest that you instruct the good doctor to administer the antidote, but I strongly suggest that you do just that, because I’ve seen the other side of that river, and it’s a place I never, never wanted you to go. But perhaps you’re already there.

KAPLAN: Yes, Raymond. She’s already there. And she’s strong. And she’s ready for what comes next.


Reddington was wrong about you. We both were. He thought you hadn’t crossed the Rubicon. I was under the impression that you had.

Where is he?

You tell me. You tell me.

I have no idea.

You see this? This belongs to your pal, Ruddiger. A little reminder of what happens when you fail me.

I didn’t fail you. I’m the one who got you Reddington! You’re the one who lost him!

You came to me promising to make Reddington suffer.

I promised to give you the opportunity to kill him. You could’ve put a bullet in his head. Instead, you put a needle in his arm, and you gave him the one thing you shouldn’t have… time… And he used it to get away.

I told you I wanted answers. I thought you understood what that entailed.

If you’re upset because I didn’t sit and watch you torture him, let me be clear. It sickens me. But I am doing it because I know more than anyone in the world that it has to be done.

There can be no space between what you want to happen and what you’re willing to do to make it happen.

So you keep telling me.

And if we can, maybe you can come home. That’s all I care about, Liz. I mean, no, maybe you can’t be an agent again, but at least you can get your life back. You and Agnes can be together. We got to talk, figure out how to end this. I’m gonna be at Bentham Park at midnight. Meet me there. And, Keen, you can trust me.

[CELLPHONE BEEPS]

Are you coming home tonight?

LIZ: Not tonight, honey. But my being away so much, I think it’s about to end. Is Mrs. French reading “The Phantom Tollbooth” to you?

We’re almost done. It’s really good.

[CELLPHONE VIBRATES]

Well, you finish up and tell me all about it when I get home, okay? I love you.

Love you, too.

[CELLPHONE VIBRATES]

Don’t answer that.

He could have good news.

You should not be talking to the FBI. You cannot take that call.

Hey, Keen, it’s me. Uh, I don’t even know if you’re getting these messages. I don’t know who I’m talking to.

Ressler says the Task Force has a source. His name is Rakitin, and he’s willing to talk. If he does, he could expose Reddington as N-13. He could end all of this.

I wish that were true. But you don’t need to hear his message to know that’s not the case.

Look. Rakitin’s dead. I don’t know how, but… It seems like he was poisoned. I mean, we really thought it was over this time. We miss you. We just want you back.

[ENGINE STARTS]

LIZ: I told her it was over, that I’d be coming home for good.

You’re doing the best you can.

I’m responsible for Mary Bremmer’s murder, Dembe’s torture, and I got nothing to show for it, except for another reminder that no matter how tight the noose, Reddington will always cheat the hangman.

I heard from the police today. They found my husband’s body. They say he died of natural causes. But you know differently.

I’m so sorry.

Phillip was a good man. Whatever he was doing, he was doing because he believed it was the right thing to do. I don’t need sympathy. I need justice. You’re the one who can get it for me.

I tried. For all of us. I don’t think I can keep trying.

I understand. You thought you could end this. You couldn’t.

You don’t know who we’re dealing with.

But I do know this… Good triumphs over evil.

I just don’t think I have what it’ll take.

Of course you do. Every mother does. The love for her child. Isn’t that what saved you?

Yes.

Didn’t you tell me your mother gave up everything for you?

Yes.

Don’t you think you should pay that forward?

Of course. But I don’t know how.

You’ll figure it out.

How can you be so sure?

Because love wins.

You really believe that?

I do. And seeing how you are with Agnes, I believe you do, too.


[KNOCK ON DOOR]

Elizabeth.

Isabella, hi.

Is my father okay?

Dembe’s fine. But I did come because I think he could use your help.

Thank God she was too young to remember what happened to her.

I dread the day when I have to tell her.

Do you have to?

I believe in the truth. When she’s ready to hear it, I’ll tell her.

Are you going to tell her the truth about your father?

You said he needs our help?

He needs our protection. From Reddington.

Did he tell you that?

No. He loves Reddington, but that love is based on a lie, one that I’m not even sure he knows about. Reddington isn’t who he says he is. I believe… The Bureau believes… Reddington may be a Russian asset.

What?

But we need proof, and with your help, we can get it.

So you’re not here to help my father. You’re here to help yourself.

I’m here to help us both, but most importantly, I’m here to help our daughters. She’s beautiful. She’s innocent. And one day, when she’s ready, you’re gonna tell her that when she was an infant, she was abducted, used as collateral so someone could get to your father. And you’re gonna tell her as if it could never happen again. But you and I both know as long as Reddington is in our lives, that isn’t true.

I won’t hurt my father.

I would never ask you to.

What do you want me to do?

I need you to call your father, tell him you want to see him.

I haven’t seen him in months.

All the better. You miss him. You want him to spend time with Elle.

Hi. It’s me.

Once you’ve set a meeting, I need you to plant this device.

What do you want to hear him say?

Nothing. I want to hear what Reddington says to him.

You really think this will help?

I think, with any luck, we can figure out what Reddington’s up to.

We’ll have other opportunities.

There was an incident in town, but they have eyes on Reddington.

What kind of incident?

Landon. She’s gone.

And Reddington?

He took the woman and went into the local police station.

No. I know what you’re thinking. They can’t do this. Innocent people will get hurt.

TOWNSEND: Oh, Raymond. You do keep things interesting.

How you wanna handle this?

Put Sagan on the police scanners and have him give us a timeframe. If we’re going to do this, it’s gonna happen now.

You’ve got to call it off. There are too many innocent people.

Don’t you think maybe that’s why he’s there?

You can’t attack a police station!

No space. Remember? Between what you want and what you’re willing to do to get it.

Innocent people will get killed.

No space. None.

Innocent people. Killed and wounded.

Take your men and your guns and your bloodshed and go. Then come find me when you’re ready, and I’ll show you the proper way to exact revenge.

And for what? Nothing. I’m listening to the police scanner. He’s gone. They have no idea where.

TOWNSEND: I did what I had to do. You didn’t.

The man who came after you today…

Neville Townsend.

He won’t stop, will he?

You’re right. There is space for me. Between what I want and what I’m willing to do to get it.

That’s unacceptable.

Well, then maybe I’ll keep Reddington all to myself.

You said he was gone.

He is. But I think I know how to find him.

Townsend was there, and he can’t see it… The magic trick, how Raymond got away. You weren’t there, but you know how he did it. Because it’s what you would have done.

Is there somewhere you can go? And not to your daughter’s. They’ll anticipate that.

My friend Cindi, the one who made the cake. She has a cabin.

See if you can go there.

Okay, sweetie. I’ll call you as soon as I know more. I love you. Be safe.

Oh.

Oh, thank God. I was just about to call you.

Are you okay? The whole town is talking about what happened.

It was awful. The whole thing. It was just… I have this friend. With me, he’s kind and decent, but he’s done some terrible things, and terrible people are after him.

Where is he… Your friend?

He says the people that are after him may come after me, and that’s why I was gonna call you. Your cabin. No one will look for me there. If I could just stay there, even just for a few days… I-I wish that were possible. I really do. And maybe it can be, after you help me find Reddington. I need to know where he is.

Pull the trigger. End this now.

Stay with me.
