Liz (Megan Boone) was given a distraction on the latest episode of The Blacklist.
She was assigned to a case that echoed the first case she ever took on, The Capricorn Killer. The suspect was never found but a new murder seemed to suggest the killer was still on the prowl.
Liz quickly discovered that the murder was the work of a copycat who was targeting serial killers and killing them using their own methods. Suspecting it was a fellow profiler responsible for the murders, Liz discovered that her therapist Dr. Sharon Fulton (Martha Plimpton) was secretly recruiting people to murder bad people.

Fulton tried to recruit Liz, who let her escape before the task force found out what she was doing.
Meanwhile Aram (Amir Arison) came face-to-face with Ian Garvey (Jonny Coyne) and he tried to keep a witness who could identify him as Singleton’s (Evan Parke) murderer safe. Red (James Spader) intercepted the witness and put him into hiding but didn’t reveal what he’d done leading everyone to think Garvey killed him.
The next episode of the season is Anna-Gracia Duerte. A member of the Nash Syndicate meets an untimely end, giving Liz, Red and the gang a potential chance to bring down Ian Garvey.
