NBC has released the Official Synopsis of The Blacklist episode “The Caretaker” (3.16) that will be aired on Thursday, February 25 at 09:00-10:00 PM.
After a State Department official is found dead in Beijing, Red (James Spader) and Liz (Megan Boone) link the murder to a secret keeper known as “The Caretaker,” who maintains an impenetrable safety deposit vault for criminals. Red and Liz work with the task force to find the Caretaker and his collection of lethal and classified secrets. Meanwhile, Tom (Ryan Eggold) makes a risky decision, while Liz persists on her quest to find out more about her mother.
The Blacklist, for decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.” Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: He will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, under the condition that he speaks only to Elizabeth “Liz” Keen, an FBI profiler fresh out of Quantico. For Liz, it’s going to be one hell of a first day on the job.
The Blacklist is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment for NBC.
