The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 18 Recap
In ‘The Blacklist’ season 8 episode 18, titled ‘The Protean,’ Townsend sends one of his men to assassinate Liz. The killer goes by the name The Protean, a hitman who Liz seems to be aware of. He enters her apartment hoping to take her down but ends up killing Dax, Skip, and Esi. When she returns from the terrace, she is horrified to see them dead. Red tries to get access to the Customs database through Max Frey. He hires Paula to probe into the database.
Meanwhile, the Protean finds another way to get to Liz. He pursues her half-sister Jen and forces her to plan a meeting with Liz. Paula proposes that Red should call Bingo. She manipulates the Bingo players in helping him solve the case. Elsewhere, Liz arrives to see Jen, and as the Protean takes his shot, the bullet ends up hitting Jen instead. By the time they take her to the hospital, it is too late; Jen is already dead. The Bingo players suggest the name Rhys Engel, and through the hitman’s recovered cellphone, they find the hotel Engel is staying in.
Liz’s safety is compromised once again as Engel follows her to her hideout. Ressler warns her to be careful, but Liz impulsively attacks Engel and refuses to free him until she knows where Townsend is hiding. And just as he is about to break free, Ressler finishes him off. The force takes her into custody.
