'The Blacklist' season 4 episode 5 spoilers: Liz's loyalties to be tested, will she betray Red?


Elizabeth “Liz” Keen’s (Megan Boone) loyalties will be tested in the upcoming, brand-new installment of NBC’s “The Blacklist” season 4.

Titled “The Lindquist Concern,” episode 5 will feature Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) taking action to intercept Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen). However, it remains to be seen where Liz’s trust really lies in the situation. Meanwhile, the task force races to find a killer who targets investors of revolutionary technology.

Some suggest that Liz may be forced to betray Red after learning a shocking secret. It can be recalled that the former has experienced distrust from people around her. It’s not just Red remaining secretive and Kirk still possibly lying about his identity as her biological father, but her husband Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) also did things behind her back. In episode 4, Kirk admitted that he needed Liz’s bone marrow to survive.

With Red potentially moving forward with his plan to use Kirk’s hematologist named Dr. Sebastian Reifler (Matt Servitto), Liz may put her foot down when she finds out that he could be lying again.

In the preview trailer, Liz seems to have discovered a DNA report which suggests that Red has been untruthful about the past the entire time. She can be seen feverishly trying to contact him. But when she gets connected, a car suddenly explodes where Red and the others are located.

Elsewhere, she will also desperately try to get her baby Agnes back and might put herself at risk in an attempt to rescue her daughter. Kirk has been keeping the baby because of her blood and ultimately her mother’s, in order to save his own life from possible death caused by his rare blood disorder. Tom destroyed their chance of finding Agnes when he tried to trace where the video feed of the baby was coming from.

Season 4 episode 5 of “The Blacklist” is slated to air on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
