Luther Braxton will stop at nothing to get the Fulcrum, even if it means sacrificing Liz’s life.
Following the post-Super Bowl episode, The Blacklist will pick up its two-parter on Thursday night with Liz (Megan Boone) now in Luther’s (Ron Perlman) custody as he takes drastic measures to extract information from her to get to the Fulcrum.
“What information might be in her mind, in her memory that she’s perhaps not even aware of?” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp tells EW. “What sort of secrets are buried deep within her past and her connection to Red that might unlock a greater sort of understanding of both the Fulcrum and her relationship to Red?”
More importantly, however, is how far he’ll go to get the information. “What is he going to do with Liz?” executive producer John Eisendrath adds. “Is she going to live or die? Will Red and the FBI find her in time to prevent him from getting what he’s looking for?”
