A fancy Embassy party seems like the perfect place to pull of an elaborate heist, or so Red (James Spader) tries to convince Liz (Megan Boone) in the first stills released from “The Blacklist” episode 1.14, titled “Madeline Pratt.”
Yes, the Olympics have forced a month long hiatus upon “The Blacklist” fans, so soon after it returned from the usual winter hiatus, but on February 24th, there’s more terrorists to take down and more secrets to be revealed. The next name on the titular Blacklist is Madeline Pratt, for whom the episode is named and who will be played by “Zero Dark Thirty” star Jennifer Ehle. She’s not featured in the new stills, but perhaps such a high profile guest star will get her own unveiling at a later date. And as these photos indicate, Pratt isn’t the only baddie in need of taking care of, as we also see Jonathan Raviv as Rasil Kalif in some sort of standoff with Liz and her team, brandishing… something. Probably something deadly that could kill millions of people.
“The Blacklist” returns with new episodes on February 24th at 10pm on NBC. The official synopsis and new stills are below.
AN ANCIENT ARTIFACT QUICKLY TURNS INTO AN ISSUE OF NATIONAL SECURITY– JENNIFER EHLE (“ZERO DARK THIRTY”) GUEST STARS — Liz (Megan Boone) helps Tom (Ryan Eggold) come to terms about their impending adoption while Red (James Spader) reveals that a woman from his past, Madeline Pratt (guest star, Jennifer Ehle) is the next target on the Blacklist. Elsewhere, at an elaborate party at the Syrian Embassy, Red convinces Liz to pull off a covert heist. Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix and Parminder Nagra also star.
