“The Blacklist” put Red Reddington in uncharted territory this season: behind bars.
Unbeknownst to him, it’s Liz Keen’s betrayal that put him there.
Megan Boone, who plays Liz, knew “Blacklist” fans would be shocked.
She just hoped they wouldn’t be mad.
“Actually, the writers were correct,” she says now. “It added some excitement and some tension and people understand why she did it.”
Also, she seemed to have a few pangs of regret.
Liz’s secret is at risk tonight. There’s a police recording of her call that led to Red’s arrest, one he’s fighting in court to hear.
It’s given Liz her own big secret to conceal from the man who’s mastered secrecy.
“She’s a good liar now. She’s learned from the best,” Boone says.
“The Blacklist” airs at 8 p.m. on KSN.
