Expect More Reddington-Liz Team Work In The Blacklist Season 8

In an interview, producer John Eisendrath revealed that there were a lot of things that were left to be shown. But they couldn’t do it in the previous season. But The Blacklist Season 8 will be even more adventurous and dramatic than the other seasons.

So far we have seen that everything that Liz knows about lies and betrayal comes from Raymond Reddington. In the upcoming season, we could see that this time Liz will use all her pieces of training under Reddington against him more than ever before. We might see her closer to her mother Katarina Rostova as well while she tries to stop her from going to the Townsend Directive. Katarina’s path could be a death sentence, and Reddington can stop, but most likely, he won’t. 

Furthermore, Reddington is going through health issues but has not revealed them to anyone so far. So Liz turning against him might complicate matters for him even more. And he might go wrong in choosing his criminal world heir too.
