NBC has released the Official Synopsis of The Blacklist episode “Mr. Kaplan” (4.21) that will be aired on Thursday, May 18 at 09:00-10:00 PM.
Facing a crippling siege on his criminal organization, Red (James Spader) tracks a high-end thief (Aldis Hodge) enlisted by Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) for a mysterious assignment. Meanwhile, Aram (Amir Arison) faces a difficult choice when Agent Gale (Enrique Murciano) takes extreme measures in his investigation into the Task Force’s conduct.
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.
