Raymond ‘Red’ Reddington (James Spader) was an ex-government agent who had been on the list of FBI’s most wanted fugitives.

Despite his status with the FBI, he mysteriously showed up one day with an offer they couldn’t refuse.

Red was willing to the team capture Ranko Zamini (Jamie Jackson), a terrorist everyone thought had died, the catch was he only wanted to talk to Liz, someone he seemingly had no connection with.

Which led Harold to remind her that she was a fugitive on the most wanted list, however with the intel on Red’s empire it could just the thing that finally frees her from her current situation.

He also shared that he wanted her to have a reason for taking over that she could feel good about and Harold also shared his hopes of them working together again.
