The popular crime drama thriller of NBC, "The Blacklist," has only two episodes left of its shocking third season. While the emotions of the viewers of the successful TV series have not yet settled following a shocking and unexpected death of one of the show's well-known characters, there might be another storm brewing. This time, the time may already be up for Raymond "Red" Reddington (played by James Spader) as some reports suggest that he could meet his demise in the season finale.
A lot of viewers still could not get over the death of Elizabeth "Liz" Keen (played by Megan Boone) who died following a complicated delivery of her newborn baby girl. The dust has not yet completely settled as the team could not yet pinpoint the person responsible for her death. Some fans are also thinking that the sudden death of Liz is actually staged and she may one day appear alive and well when everything is back to normal. However, according to reports, another main character might end up dead in the hands of a traitor in the Season 3 finale. The unfortunate character next on the death list might actually be Red himself.
This synopsis for the upcoming finale episode entitled "Alexander Kirk, Conclusion" also suggests that Red will find himself in danger.
"As Reddington and the task force close in on the person responsible for Liz's death, a shocking betrayal leaves them racing to save one of their own," the Episode 23 synopsis from NBC official website reads. With this, it seems like there is a snitch in the group that has always been planning their destruction. Whoever the traitor is, viewers might be able to get the answer during the season finale.
Meanwhile, there is a looming spin-off miniseries coming from "The Blacklist." In the upcoming episode prior to the season finale, there is a hint that Susan "Scottie" Hargrave (played by Famke Janssen) will recruit Tom (played by Ryan Eggold) into her group. This would give Tom a new stage to work with where he will be the sole main player of the group. Deadline also reported that Eggold signed up for a starring role in a spin-off series, which raises the possibility that Tom's own miniseries may be on its way.
