The Blacklist Burning Question: Who Is the Mole? (UPDATE)
UPDATE: It looks like the mole may be CIA agent Meera Malik (Parminder Nagra)! In Episode 12: "The Alchemist", Red (James Spader) corners her and she seems to cop to the charge — but may save her hide with some information Red might find invaluable.
Original story: If you’re like us, then you must have a ton of unanswered questions nagging you while you wait for The Blacklist to return in January. Like: was Red (James Spader) telling Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) the truth about not being her father? Is Tom (Ryan Eggold) really as bad as Red wants Lizzie to think? And who is themole that let Anslo Garrick know about the blacksite?
Well, that last one is definitely a burning question for Red, and a key focus at the start of the second half of the season. According to TV Guide, Episode 11: “The Good Samaritan Killer” will have everyone at the blacksite under the microscope, “and a familiar face will end up on Red’s hit list.” It sounds to us like the two are related, as Red seeks retribution for the death of Luli (and the near death of his sidekick Dembe).
Red plans on “taking down anyone and everyone who was involved in the raid,” TV Guide’s Natalie Abrams teases. Unfortunately the episode title, usually an allusion to the nom du jour on Red’s list, doesn’t provide too many clues.
Conspiracy theorists, start your engines. Who do you think is responsible for the leak?
