Plot Season 8
The story follows the life of Raymond Reddington, who was a former US Naval Intelligence officer. He disappeared for twenty years and went on to become one of the most wanted criminals in the United States. Later, he comes back and surrenders himself to an FBI Assistant Director who takes him to the “black site”. The viewers might think of this as something very uncanny. However, he has hidden motives for this. Raymond agrees to help the FBI track down its most wanted criminals and terrorists whose mere existence is unknown. Along with this, he puts forward two conditions: Immunity from prosecution and Elizabeth Keen as his partner. The show continues by featuring both of them capturing the most dangerous fugitives.
The last season did not end the way it should have. However, we have more to uncover the relationship between Liz and Red. Season 8 might clear certain doubts and bring forward truths about Red.
