On The Blacklist, a bounty has been placed on former Agent Liz Keen’s (Megan Boone) head. Red (James Spader) will try to protect her as best he can but with multiple possible assassins coming after her, it’s going to be tricky. The FBI isn’t going to protect her, they want to arrest her. And they might be getting closer to apprehending Keen. In the episode “Arioch Cain,” Agent Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) and US Deputy Attorney General Reven Wright (Adriane Lenox) meet with a powerful politician who chairs a powerful committee.
The tough pol is portrayed by Christine Lahti. She’s best known for her roles on Law & Order: SVU (Executive ADA Sonya Paxton), Hawaii Five-0 (Doris McGarrett), Jack & Bobby (Grace McCallister), and Chicago Hope (Dr. Kathryn Austin). Lahti is also recognized for her roles in the films Swing Shift with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell (Hazel), Housekeeping based on the Marilynne Robinson novel (Sylvie), and Sidney Lumet’s Running on Empty with Judd Hirsch and River Phoenix. The Blacklist airs Thursdays at 9pm on NBC.
