Case Profile for #156-157 The Kazanjian Brothers
Frank Merwin is an accountant for criminals and one of those criminals has hired The Kazanjian Brothers to watch over Merwin as he makes his way from New York to D.C. Turns out these same brothers are the ones that were hired by Katarina to fake her death back in the fall finale. They were paid the bounty from Townsend for proving her death. This bounty then went to pay Katarina her portion as all as a small amount to a mystery person. So why is she still interested in Red? That mystery lies with the Sokorski Archives, information that she has been accused of stealing but does not have. Red may hold information about the archives that Katarina needs.
Elsewhere Liz is struggling to decided which side of the conflict she should be on. Should she stayed partnered with Red and take down this woman she believes is her mother, or should she side with Katarina and finally get the answers she has been seeking sine the start of her and Red’s coincidental encounter back in S1. Whichever side she chooses, Liz is animated that she will learn the truth when Season 8 returns soon.
We also had a conversation with two of the editors of this episode in an exclusive behind the scenes interview in the making of the episode. Be sure to stick around to hear from Chris Brookshire and Elyse Holloway as they share just how much work went into making this episode of the blacklist a reality.
