‘The Blacklist’ Episode Guide (Oct. 8): The FBI Tries to Push Cooper Out of the Task Force

“Marvin Gerard” (10/08/15) – Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) is hot on the trail for Liz (Megan Boone) after she escapes to the Russian embassy for safety.

There is no one left for her to trust but Red (James Spader), who enlists a lawyer named Marvin Gerard to get them out of a sticky hostage situation.

Meanwhile, the FBI tries to force Cooper (Harry Lennix) out of the task force.

In the third season of the hit NBC drama “The Blacklist,” FBI Agent Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone, “Law & Order: Los Angeles”) is now a fugitive and on the run with criminal mastermind Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader, “The Office,” “Boston Legal”).

With Assistant FBI Director Harold Cooper under investigation, a conflicted Agent Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff, “Homeland”) leads the FBI Task Force on a massive manhunt for Liz and Red – more dangerous together than apart since Liz has expert knowledge of FBI procedures and no one exceeds Red’s vast resources.

As they struggle to stay one step ahead of their former colleagues and Liz immerses herself into Red’s underworld of disreputable contacts and covert operations, will the notorious list of new Blacklisters this season play a key role in their survival or their demise? Liz is on an unpredictable journey of self-discovery and all the pieces of her life, including her indefinable relationship with Tom (Ryan Eggold, “90210”), will be drastically challenged as she continues to believe Red holds all the answers.

Jon Bokenkamp (“The Call,” “Taking Lives”), John Eisendrath (“Alias”), John Davis (“Predator,” “I, Robot,” “Chronicle”), John Fox and Michael Watkins (“The X-Files”) serve as executive producers. “The Blacklist” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
