A dangerous Russian assassin named Karakurt is on the loose on US soil on The Blacklist. While investigating the whereabouts of Karakurt via Russian Counter-Intelligence, Liz discovers information about her mother, which makes her a target.
Karakurt is portrayed by Michael Massee. He’s best known for his TV roles on 24 (Ira Gaines), Alias (Dr. Gonzalo Burris), Supernatural (Kubrick), and Rizzoli & Isles (Charles Hoyt).
