Case Profile for Smokey Putnam

Smokey Putnam is in charge of moving the greatest show on earth across the United States, at least for his day job. But on the side he is skimming money off the top of the operation to fund his escape plan from a drug cartel run by a group of skinheads led by LeMarc. Red is living at a motor lodge seemingly penniless, and needs to to find cash and some employees fast. Smokey and Red’s paths cross as Raymond is hired by a bounty hunter looking to get Smokey to trial. In the end Smokey leads Red to the drug cartel, which are later picked up by Cooper and the FBI, and Smokey goes to court. However nothing is ever as it seems on The Blacklist and Red has an even bigger plan at play that unfolds right before his new “daughter’s” eyes, as Liz ultimately finds out that this was to get the real money launder that Smokey worked with to join up with Team Reddington. Tom also returns to the mothership with the suitcase of bones only to be sideswiped by Liz with the new information about Reddington. We break down what those flashes were, the music and more as we return for another exciting season of The Blacklist Exposed.
