What Is the Blacklist’s Plot?
Jon Bokenkamp created The Blacklist, which premiered on NBC in 2013. The series begins with a young FBI profiler, Elizabeth “Liz” Keen, who finds her life turned upside down when a mysterious criminal, Raymond “Red” Reddington, who has eluded arrest for decades, surrenders and insists on speaking only to her.
This triggering occurrence resulted in Liz and Reddington collaborating to take down some of the world’s most heinous criminals via what is known as “the Blacklist.” Liz and Reddington have dealt with several parts of the criminal world over the course of the show’s eight seasons, as well as numerous twists and turns and a deeper investigation of their relationship’s murky origins.
SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t caught up on The Blacklist yet, since we’re about to discuss the season 8 finale (may be best to go catch up as soon as possible because it has some series-changing events).
Early in the season 8 finale, viewers are warned to expect death. Reddington informs Liz that he is dying but wishes for her to be the one to take over his criminal empire. To sweeten the deal, he discloses that he has a note from Liz’s mother outlining precisely who Red is, but she can have it only after she has murdered him.
Liz reluctantly agrees, but when it comes time to shoot Red, she is unable to do so, which he understands. However, a competing accomplice deduces Red’s scheme and comes on the scene, shooting Liz in the back. Red cradles her as she passes away. Season 9’s debut episode, “The Skinner,” will take place in the future. The following is a synopsis:
“Reddington and the task team disbanded two years after Elizabeth Keen’s death, with Red’s whereabouts unknown; but when one of their own is injured in the line of duty, they are driven back together to bring down a global conspiracy.”
How to Watch the Blacklist?
NBC is one of the four major broadcast networks in the United States, with a local affiliate station in almost every television market. As such, it is included with nearly every traditional cable/satellite pay-TV subscription, all major live TV streaming services (including Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV), and can even be received the old-fashioned way, via a television antenna picking up the local station’s signal.
Additionally, audiences have several streaming choices if they are unable to watch the show live or have cut the cord on cable. The first is the Peacock streaming service, which is owned by NBCUniversal. Subscribers to Peacock Premium, which costs $4.99 per month (with advertising) or $9.99 per month (ad-free), may get the latest episode of The Blacklist the day after it airs on television.
Hulu subscribers also have the same option. Additionally, these streaming sites offer past seasons of The Blacklist. Pay-TV or live-TV streaming service subscribers can also watch The Blacklist on-demand on the NBC website. The Blacklist’s previous seasons are also available to stream on Netflix.
