‘The Blacklist’ season 8 episode 4 is titled ‘Elizabeth Keen.’ The show will pick up from where the 3rd episode of season 8 ends. And here is the official synopsis of the story as outlined by NBC: “As Red and the Task Force search for Liz, she sets a new plan in motion that has catastrophic consequences.”

In episode 3, Red tells Harold that they should move her up to top priority. Therefore, episode 4 is expected to reveal her mission. We also hope that the plot reveals Red’s endgame.

Therefore, Red needs to find a way to stop Liz or fulfill some sort of promise he made way back.

The Blacklist Season 8 Episode 3 Recap

In the episode titled ‘16 Ounces,’ Raymond Reddington catches a glimpse of the body of Katarina Rostova getting wrapped up by his team of cleaners. He then asks Dembe if killing her was a mistake. Dembe replies: “You ask a tactical question when I see only an ethical one. It wasn’t a mistake, but it was wrong.” Liz, on the other hand, is furious and upset that Red murdered her mom when she had asked him not to. She packs up her clothes, takes her fake passport, and picks up a  bunch of cash to hole up in a motel.

This is when she receives a voicemail from Katarina documenting the final moments before Red killed her. Katarina is heard saying in the clip: “I can’t imagine what it must be like for you — knowing you can’t kill me because of how much Elizabeth loves her mother.” She then meets up with Cooper and says that she has evidence proving Red had killed a woman. The episode wraps up with Reddington and Cooper coming together to discuss how they can protect Elizabeth from herself.
