We might have just met Fitch Crowley (Alan Alda) on The Blacklist, but we’ve got a feeling he’ll be sticking around for awhile.

In case you need a refresher, Crowley is a man who — like many others, we suspect — wants Red Reddington (James Spader) dead. But why? In the midseason finale, we learned that Red has enough dirt on Crowley to make him feel threatened, especially now that Red’s in cahoots with the FBI. If Red’s willing to share privileged information about other criminal organizations, what’s stopping him from breaking his previous agreements with Fitch and ratting him out, too?

So what’s a criminal mastermind to do? Let Anslo kill Red, of course, even after Red promises he’s not planning on exposing Crowley’s secrets. Anslo doesn’t end up doing the deed, though, and instead threatens that he could kill Lizzie (Megan Boone) instead.

From what we’ve seen so far, Fitch Crowley isn’t a dude we would wanna mess with — and since his reappearance in Red’s life set off such an insane (and violent) series of events, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see him or see Blacklist characters affected by his influence over Anslo in the future.

We hope Lizzie’s sleeping with one eye open.

What do you think Crowley will be up to when The Blacklist returns? Sound off below!
