Don’t worry “Blacklist” fans, Aram Mojtabai (Amir Arison) is totally fine. Like he’s great. Well, he’s either “good or devastated,” but either way he says for sure ready to go into the field.
In TheWrap’s exclusive clip from Friday’s episode, titled “Les Fleurs du Mal,” Aram comes to see Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix) to give him some details on this week’s case and offer to run point on the project, which will require him to act like a couple with a woman, Mrs. Radcliff, something he believes he can do more convincingly than Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) because he as a “connection” with her.
Uh, is he ready for that after losing his beloved Samar (Mozhan Marnò), following her escape from the Mossad assassins out to kill her last season?
“I’m fine, still a bit numb, I guess, but when the last real feeling you have is devastation you’re not super psyched to get out there and feel again,” Aram tells Cooper. “But I’m good, I’m good. “
And Cooper says he agrees. (That he’s ready to go undercover, not “good or devastated,” jury’s still out on that part.)
Watch the clip above.
Here’s the official description for tonight’s episode:
Aram goes undercover to infiltrate a secret society of wealthy thrill-seekers, whose entertainment hinges upon spectacular acts of violence. Meanwhile, Red tries to negotiate with a former associate involved in the Townsend Directive, while Katarina Rostova (guest star Laila Robins) takes steps to insinuate herself into Liz’s life.
