What we know about Season 9 Episode 6

It’s hard not to notice that NBC has released very few promos for The Blacklist Season 9. The episode title hints that an intelligent female blacklister will be the FBI’s new target, but there’s really not much else that can be said. The Blacklist‘s official Twitter doesn’t have much information either.

However, fans can definitely expect a new criminal to emerge. Episode 6 will also likely continue the storyline of Cooper’s mysterious memory loss, and the death of his former neighbor.

There are already mixed feelings surrounding the new season of The Blacklist. Some fans are enjoying Red’s first season without Liz. However, things are still awkward between Red and Dembe. Red has a new bodyguard and Dembe joined the FBI, which has certainly ruffled some feathers. However, it’s possible that future episodes of The Blacklist Season 9 will resolve the conflict between them.

Is anyone leaving ‘The Blacklist’ cast?

With all the changes surrounding The Blacklist, many fans are worried that their favorite characters might leave the show. Luckily, it seems like what’s left of the original cast of The Blacklist will stick around. Hisham Tawfiq, Amir Arison, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, and James Spader definitely seem in it for the long haul.

NBC has not yet confirmed whether the series will be renewed for season 10. The series has enjoyed consistently decent ratings and a devoted fan base since the beginning. Still, after the exit of Boone and Bokenkamp from the series, it’s not certain how long The Blacklist can continue. Fans will have to keep an eye out to see what’s next for the show.
