An FBI profiler’s Elizabeth Keen world is turned upside down when a long-time fugitive named Raymond Reddington surrenders to authorities and demands to talk exclusively to her. One of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, Raymond “Red” Reddington, turns himself in at the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. It is his belief that both he and the FBI share a common goal of apprehending dangerous individuals such as criminals and terrorists.

Within the last two decades, he has compiled a list of criminals and terrorists who are of the utmost importance but who the FBI has been unable to locate since they are not aware that they exist.

Blacklist Season 9: Plot

Blacklist Season 9

Because of Liz’s complex relationships with Red and Ressler, the show’s dynamic was destined to undergo some major shifts following her death. Season nine jumps ahead two years in time, keeping up with the lives of the FBI Task Force members as they try to move on from the death of one of their own members.

The squad disbands at the beginning of the season, with Red fleeing after Liz’s death. But they are quickly reunited, as Red has subsequently learned who may have been responsible for Liz’s attack. On the other hand, Red is adamant that he is responsible for what he believes was an unnecessarily tragic death.

In the 7th episode, Ressler’s life following Liz’s death is shown. He ended up in a drunken automobile crash, back on prescription drugs, and surrendering his pistol and badge after discovering her body. Two years later, he seems better ready to face the world without Liz, thanks to a hotel manager and her son.

Vandyke could not have followed Dembe on the day of Liz’s murder, implying someone else led Vandyke to Liz, as Red discovers through GPS coordinates in the last moments of episode nine. After some reconciliation between him and Dembe, the two of them are now determined to learn the identity of the enigmatic figure who aided Vandyke.

More information concerning Reddington’s illness, Elizabeth’s daughter Agnes’s whereabouts and a new batch of criminals are all likely to be revealed in Season 9. I look forward to seeing how he will make decisions that will affect his future after losing his daughter, who was the driving force behind him connecting to the FBI.
