Case Profile for The Russian Knot
Townsend, utterly disappointed at the failure in Kansas is at this wits end with Liz. He demands she do something to rectify the situation. Liz goes to her mother’s storage locker to look into what might be a clue to bringing down Reddington. One thing she finds is a set of old Russian codes and seeks out an old Russian spy to decode them. He tells Liz the only way they can be decoded with a Russian Knot, a sophisticated typewriter that encodes a message on one and then the receiver can decode them on a separate Russian Knot on the other end.
Turns out there just happens to be a relic at a museum in Minsk and both Liz and the task force want it. The Task force thinks they are decrypting a message from Townsend about Red, where Liz is trying to decrypt a message her mother had about Reddington. In the end The FBI is duped with a fake message and Liz finds the real message, using a Cyrillic alphabet, “It’s time. Mobilize all assets.”
