[ A horse ranch in Cork, Ireland ]
Malloy: Remarkable, isn’t he? Perfect limbs. Plenty of bone. Like God’s own racehorse.
Nirah: Extraordinary. Tell me about the stud fees.
Malloy: 150,000 euros a mare. 150 mares a year. Bit early to put him out to stud, if you ask me. Truth is, Fitz stands to make more on the stables than on the racetrack. I know 150K is a pretty penny, but your mare won’t find a better match.
[ Malloy lights his pipe ] [ Nirah opens a flask and offers it to him ]
Nirah: I agree.
[ alt-J’s ♫ “Fitzpleasure” plays ]
[ ⬇ Go to Full Lyrics ] or [ ♪ Tap square below twice to play ♪ ]

♪ Tra la, la-tra la, tra-ah, la

Nirah: [ Chuckles ] To Fitzpleasure.
Malloy: To Fitz. Sláinte.

♪ Tra-ah, la

Malloy: Unfair, really. Stallions get the prestige, but breeding a quality racehorse is as much about the dam as the sire.

♪ Tra la, la-tra, la, tra-ah
In your snatch fits pleasure

Malloy: What have you done?
[ Malloy seizes and collapses ]

♪ Broom-shaped pleasure

[ Nirah kicks the lit pipe into the hay, then strokes the race horse ]
Nirah: You’re a beautiful creature. Too beautiful for this world.
[ The straw starts to flame ] [ Horse whinnies ]
Nirah: It’ll all be over soon.

♪ Tra la la
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Blended by the lights

[ Horse whinnies ] [ Nirah leaves the stable as the flames engulf it ]

 
Tom: Hey, you want to grab, uh, lunch?
Liz: Yeah. There’s a burger place in Adams Morgan I’ve been wanting to try.
Tom: Lunch sounds so–
Liz: I believe the word you’re looking for is “amazing.”
Tom: Yeah, completely amazing, but, like, something parents would do.
[ Tom’s cellphone ringing ]
Liz: Oh! Yeah. If either of us had even remotely normal parents.
Tom: Now, that’s the word I was looking for. Lunch sounds so completely normal.
[ Cellphone ringing; Tom goes to answer it ]
Tom: You know I love normal.
Liz: Someone’s really trying to get ahold of you.
Tom: I know. Sorry. [ Into phone: ] Hello?
Nik: Pete called. He ran a search on the DNA from the bones.
Tom: Uh, sorry, not interested.
Nik: Not interested? Oh, right. Liz is there.
Tom: Look, you shouldn’t call this early. [ To Liz: ] Telemarketer.
Liz: They’re not supposed to be calling us.
Nik: Look, Pete wants to meet. His apartment. 2:00.
Liz: [ Loudly, so the caller will hear ] Hey, we’re on the no-call list. What you’re doing is illegal.
Nik: She’s right. It is. And I can’t believe I let the two of you rope me into it.
[ Cellphones beep ]
Liz: At lunch no calls, no interruptions.
Tom: Agreed. Just you and me being normal.
Liz: Yeah.
[ Liz’s cellphone buzzes. Call: Nick’s Pizza ]
Liz: Reddington?

 
[ A small colonial in the countryside. Red and Dembe are playing Bananagrams ]
Liz: Nice upgrade from the no-tell motel. Can you afford it?
Red: It’s a three-day rental Dembe found through some online site. Something b-n-b? Are you familiar with such a thing?
Liz: Uh, me and a billion other people.
Red: They match hosts who want to rent out their homes with guests who want to rent them and get a commission from each one. It’s a license to print money. The renters never have to meet the owners. The Robinsons simply put my key in a lockbox outside. Completely anonymous.
Red: “Peel.” Ah! Great ideas are like great athletes – efficient, elegant, powerful. I’m aroused by both and mourn the death of either.
[ Red shows Liz a newspaper article ]
Liz: [ Reads aloud ] “Champion racehorse and trainer die in stable fire.”
Red: Fitzpleasure was the greatest European racehorse in a generation. His stud price was set at 150,000 euros, but he only covered a single mare before the fire. One. Which is why I know he was murdered.
Dembe: “Peel.”
Liz: It doesn’t say anything here about murder or arson.
Red: In horse breeding, genes are everything, and Fitzpleasure had the best ones. His owners stood to make millions spreading his seed. Now he’s dead, and another owner is conveniently positioned to reap the windfall. The owner of Fitzpleasure’s only offspring.
Dembe: “Bananas.”
Red: What? No. “Pot,” “mustard,” “satchel” – What’s that? Q-I? Qi?
Dembe: Chur.
Red: [ Laughing ] Oh, come on!
Dembe: It means “life force.”
Red: Honestly. You’re like one of those extraordinary children who knows how to spell “onomatopoeia.”
Liz: But even he couldn’t spell out why a horse killer is on the Blacklist.
Red: The last white rhino, the final dodo bird – the only surviving member of a group or species is called an endling. You’re not looking for a horse killer, Elizabeth, you’re in search of the endling himself – the nom de plume of the legendary creator of one-of-a-kind items.

 
[ The Post Office ]
Liz: » Baghdad, 2015. An RPG took down a private plane carrying one of the only two known statues of the Sumerian goddess Inanna. Four crew members were killed in the crash, leaving the only other statue in private hands.
» Turkey, 2016. A nursery cultivating a unique species of drought-resistant barley was stolen and three botanists were murdered.
Samar: The genetic profile used to create the seed was taken and all but one of the samples destroyed, giving the new owner a virtual monopoly on the next harvest.
Liz: Reddington believes her next target is on U.S. soil.
Cooper: “Her”?
Ressler: Well, according to the report from the Irish authorities, the trainer who died in the fire, he had a visitor just before the incident – woman of Middle Eastern descent, early 30s, going by the alias Alicia Grey.
Cooper: The best way to find her is by talking to the people who benefit from her actions Fitzpleasure’s sole offspring. Do we know the owner?
Aram: Yep. Caleb Hess – CEO of an international security contracting firm based in Hanover, Maryland.

 
Caleb Hess: Yes, I benefited from the tragedy.
Ressler: Your horse tripled in value overnight. That’s not a benefit. That’s a windfall.
Hess: Call it what you like. It’s still a tragedy I had nothing to do with.
Samar: We reviewed your company’s financial statements. You have quite a bit of debt. You can’t pay your creditors.
Hess: We’re having issues, yes, but I don’t see what that has–
Ressler: We know the woman that you hired used the alias Alicia Grey. What’s her real name?
Hess: I don’t know because I didn’t hire–
Ressler: You’re the largest shareholder, and when your stock nosedives, so does your savings. Now, this is a tough position to be in for someone who sees themselves as a provider – the person who takes care of the family.
Samar: And that’s how you see yourself, isn’t it, Mr. Hess? It’s why you transferred ownership of your prized thoroughbred to your son just days after the unfortunate incident with Fitzpleasure sent the value of his new asset through the roof. You may be headed towards bankruptcy, but it seems your son is wealthier than ever.
Hess: I transferred an asset to my child for estate-tax reasons. There’s nothing illegal in that.
Ressler: No, there is not, but it is illegal to conspire to murder a racehorse. And when we find out you did that, which we will, as well as your son benefiting from that windfall, we will go after him as a co-conspirator.
Hess: You leave my son out of this.
Ressler: Sure. As soon as you tell us what we need to know.
Samar: The woman – who is she?
Hess: She never said anything about murder. All she said was that she could increase my foal’s value. She didn’t say how.
Samar: How did you contact her?
Hess: I didn’t. She came to me.
Ressler: So, how did you pay her?
Hess: She didn’t want money. She wanted information.
Ressler: What kind of information?
Hess: Security protocols we put in place for the daughter of a king.
Samar: Who is she?
Hess: Princess Sonya of Montenegro. My firm trained her team years ago. She’ll have at least four bodyguards working in coordination with local law enforcement. She uses aliases, decoy vehicles, and books an entire floor wherever she’s staying.

 
[ Cellphone rings, beeps ]
Dr Felix Dresner: Dresner.
Nirah: Where are we at?
Dr Dresner: Uh, the numbers are improving to hit our targets.
Nirah: Good. Prepare station three. I should have an addition soon.

 
Cooper: What does the endling want with European royalty?
Liz: The princess is the sole heir to the throne. If she dies, the royal family dies with her.
Cooper: Who benefits from that?
Liz: According to the State Department, King Jovan and his daughter instituted reforms that were unpopular with the country’s hard-liners.
Cooper: So the princess’ death means the end of the king’s line and a win for the reactionaries.
Aram: Okay, according to the Diplomatic Security Service, Princess Sonya is here in DC to deliver a speech at the UNESCO Conference, and she has a room block at the Greylock Hotel in downtown DC under the name Elise Wolf.
Cooper: Aram, alert hotel security. Ressler, Samar, Keen get to that hotel now.

 
[ The Greylock Hotel ]
Princess: [ Rehearsing her speech ] “of all the long-standing”
Guard: [ Speaks Serbian ]
Princess Sonya: [ Speaks Serbian ]

 
[ Room Service delivers a car with a bottle of Champagne ]
Nirah: Perfect. Please come in.

 
Donald Ressler, FBI.
Tom Campbell: Tom Campbell, Head of Security. We spoke on the phone. Ms. Wolf has the entire 15th floor.
Ressler: What’s the fastest way there? Main elevator. South hall.
Liz: Go. I’ll keep an eye on surveillance. I’m gonna need access to your security feeds.

 
[ Nirah exits her room with the cart, wearing the uniform of the Room Service woman, who lies unconscious on the floor ]

 
[ Elevator bell dings ]
Security: End of the hall. Suite 1550.
[ Ressler and Samar enter the Princess’s suite. Her guards react ]
Guard: Hey, wait a minute. What’s going on?
Ressler: [ Flashes his badge ] Agent Donald Ressler, FBI. We’re gonna need to see your princess. There’s been a threat.
Man: Checking the stairwell now.
⋘⋙
[ Nirah opens an electrical cabinet. A security man tries to intervene. She tases him⚡️]
[ Elevator bell dings ]
⋘⋙
[ Liz is viewing real-time feed of hotel halls and stairwells ]
Liz: Wait. Go back. That stairwell.
⋘⋙
[⚡️ Electricity crackles⚡️ The security feeds go blank ]
Security: Command. Command, we lost power on the 15th floor. What’s going on?
⋘⋙
Man: There’s been a breach on floor 15.
Liz: We lost the feeds! We need to get her out of there right now!
⋘⋙
[ Beeping ]
Samar: Back! Back! Back! Now!
[ The electrical cabinet explodes, hurtling Ressler and Samar across the hall ]
⋘⋙
[ (Slow motion) High pitched sound. Ressler and Samar slowly recover and exit through a door ]
[ Alarm blaring ]
⋘⋙
[ Ressler and Samar enter the room where the Princess is. Two guards point their guns at them. They duck back ]
Ressler: Don’t shoot! FBI!
Guard: I need confirmation. What’s going on?
Samar: FBI. Lower your weapons.
Princess Sonya: What’s going on?
Samar: Princess Sonya, there’s been a breach. I need you to come with us.
[ Alarm blaring; they run down the hall ]
Ressler: We’ve got the princess. We’re on the move.

 
[ Nirah knocks on a hotel door ]
Nirah: Ana Dewan?
Ana Dewan: Yes?
Nirah: Diplomatic security. Please come with me. The princess needs you. Please! It’s urgent!

 
[ Samar, Princess Sonya and others hurry through the lobby. The Princess stops ]
Samar: Are you all right?
Princess Sonya: Wait. Ana.
Samar: It’s okay. You’re safe now. Please. Please.
Princess: No. Ana. We can’t leave Ana.

 
[ A car awaits ]
Nirah: Hurry. Please hurry. Get in.
[ Ana gets into the back seat. Nirah tases her ⚡️]

 
Pete McGee: I was able to pull a sample off the bones and run a DNA sequence, which, when you think about it, is pretty remarkable considering the–
Tom: Did you get a name?
Pete: No. None of the databases I searched had a match.
Tom: Even the federal DNA database?
Pete: CODIS is a two-step process, and I can’t get past step one. I can run the search remotely which is super illegal but that will only get you a match. To get an identity, you need a Fed to authorize the request.
Tom: So, you can know the bones match someone in the system, but you can’t get the name of that someone without an FBI agent signing off.
Pete: Which ain’t gonna happen.
Nik: Whatever you’re thinking–
Tom: I could just take her credentials.
Nik: Stop thinking it.
Tom: She doesn’t even have to know.
Nik: That’s a terrible idea.
Pete: An ID would work.

 
[ Ana Dewan lies on a hospital bed, unconscious ]
Dr Dresner: So, I’ve started her on Epogen, B12, testosterone. If she responds like the others, I’ll have her up to the desired volume soon.
Nirah: Alert your team. I want them ready when I return.

 
[ Red is up late, eating out of a jar of peanut butter, when he hears clatter. He observes two men enter the house he is renting. He gently knocks on Dembe’s door. Dembe appears. Red holds up two fingers ]
[ Dembe easily subdues the two men ]
Red: Hello, there.
Dembe: Somebody knows we’re here.
Red: Pity. I was just starting to feel at home.

 
[ Red confronts one of the two men ]
Red: I need a name. The person who hired you.
Sven: No one. We weren’t hired.
Red: Proverbs 21, verse 10 – Solomon’s dissertation on the wicked and the company they keep. Do you know it?
Sven: Proverbs?
Red: Stirs up more passion than any other verse we study in Talmud class. “There is no honor among thieves.” I disagree. A few thieves have been among the most honorable men I have ever known. What about you – Sven – are you an honorable man?
Sven: Uh- yeah. I think so. Hmm.
Red: Let’s put that to the test, shall we?
[ Dembe, flashing the brass knuckles on his right hand, goes into a nearby room ]
[ Sounds of beating, groaning ]
Red: I need a name.
Sven: The Mailman. That’s all I know. Nash talked to him. The Mailman sent us.

 
[ In the bathroom, Nash lies in a tub of water, his head submerged, with only two straws to breathe ]
Red: I do like a nice, long soak, don’t you?
[ They let Nash raise his head ]
Nash: [ Gasping ]
Red: The Mailman. Where can we find him?

 
[ The Post Office ]
Cooper: I know this is a very difficult time for you, but understanding why Ana was targeted is our best chance of getting her back safely. Can you think of any reason why someone would target your assistant instead of you?
Princess Sonya: Ana isn’t my assistant. She’s– It’s hard to describe what she is. I’m pregnant. My child will be second in line to the throne. If something happens to me while I’m pregnant, if I need emergency surgery, Ana was here to provide a transfusion.
Cooper: Why not get one at a hospital?
Princess: I have Lutheran B-negative blood. It’s a rare type. There’s no guarantee they would have it.
Samar: But Ana does. That’s why you keep her around? She’s a walking blood bank?
Princess: Actually, Ana and I don’t have the same blood type.

 
Cooper: You’re telling me seven people in the world have Ana’s blood type? Seven? Out of 7 billion?
Aram: Incredible, right? That is why it is known as golden blood.
Samar: I understand that it’s rare, but not why it would be valuable to someone like the princess.
Aram: Okay. So, 99% of us have high-prevalence antigens in our blood. If the ones who don’t receive a transfusion from the ones who do, the incompatibility can prove fatal. So, finding a donor for people with rare blood types, like the princess, is super difficult. And if they’re in a crisis, I can only imagine it would be a desperate race against the clock.
Ressler: And golden blood is compatible with the princess’ blood type.
Aram: With any rare blood types. It is the only known universal donor which, obviously, makes its life-saving capabilities enormous.
Ressler: Yeah, when there were seven. Imagine if the endling kills all but one.
Samar: The sole survivor’s blood would be worth a king’s ransom.
Aram: And, according to the Rare Blood Database, two have gone missing within the last three months.
Cooper: Does the database list the locations of any other golden bloods?
Aram: In this country, I see one. Ethan Isaacs, currently in the ICU at DC Mercy Hospital.
Cooper: Samar, Ressler get there.

 
[ At a Post Office, Red waits in line. His “WANTED” posted is pinned to the wall ]
Tony: Next. Next!
Woman: He’s ready for you.
Red: My apologies. That last one on the right [ referring to the “WANTED” poster ], I’ve see him somewhere.
Woman: So have I.
Red: Have you? And where was that?
Woman: In my dreams. I have a weakness for bad boys.
Red: [ Chuckles ]

 
[ Red steps up to the counter ]
Red: I received two unexpected packages at my residence last night.
Tony: Did you bring the packages with you, sir?
Red: I’m afraid they’re rather large.
[ Red shows him a photo of Sven and Nash ]
Red: They said The Mailman sent them. Imagine my surprise when I realized they meant an actual mailman.
Tony: Yeah. I got no idea who they are.
Red: Let me refresh your memory – they’re the men you sent to kill me.
Tony: Yeah. Sure thing, Pops. Whatever you say. You know, I got a nice roll of stamps for you.
They have Calvin and Hobbes on them. Why don’t you take those?
Red: You don’t know who I am?
Tony: Yeah. You’re a pain in my ass.
Red: But you sent them to my house. Why?
Tony: Okay. Is this a joke? That’s– Yes. Janet from circulation sent you here to yank my chain, right?
Red: I think you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Tony: Now, listen, pal. I don’t know nothing about you or your houseguests. And the only person I want to kill is my podiatrist for having my orthotics on backorder. $59.98.
[ Red turns and leaves ]

 
[ At Mercy Hospital, Nirah greets Ethan Isaacs’ parents. She is dressed in a nurse’s uniform ]
Dana Isaacs: [ To Nirah ] Alma, hey. Ethan was hoping he’d see you before we take him home.
Nirah: How’s he doing?
John Isaacs: Kid’s a fighter, but, um there’s nothing more the doctors can do but make him comfortable.
Nirah: Yeah. I know. I heard.
Dana: He’s always hated hospitals, so– This way he can be in his room, with us.
Nirah: That’s right. That’s right.
[ Nirah and Dana hug ]
Nirah: So, the nurses on four made me promise that I would bring Ethan by before he left. So, why don’t you finish up here and come down? They have cake.
[ Both chuckle ]

 
[ At Ethan’s bedside ]
Nirah: [ Whispers ] Hey, kiddo. [ Ethan nods ]Do you want to get out of here? Yeah? Do you want to go home? Okay. Okay.
⋘⋙
[ Elevator Bell rings ]
Ressler: Agent Ressler, FBI. We’re looking for Ethan Isaacs.
John Isaacs: What’s wrong? What does the FBI want with our son?
Samar: We have reason to believe that Ethan is being targeted for abduction.
John Isaacs: There must be some mistake.
Samar: Where is he?
Dana Isaacs: He’s in his room with a nurse. Alma said there was gonna be a goodbye party on the fourth floor.
[ They check: Nathan’s bed is empty ]
Ressler: Start lockdown procedure now. Go!

 
[ Nirah and Nathan get in a car ]
Nathan: Where are we, Alma? Where’s my mommy?
Nirah: Sweetheart, please. Just get some rest.
[ Engine starts ]

 
[ Tony (the Mailman) gets in his car ]
[ Engine won’t turn over, sputters ] [ Red gets in the passenger seat ]
Red: [ Sighs, leans over to unlock the hood ]
[ Dembe works on the engine ]
Tony: Oh! Hey, come on. What are you doing?
Red: When I was 17 and heading off to the Naval Academy, I sent the most extravagant love letter to Sarah Ellen Winstead. She never replied. To this day, I remain convinced that the post office failed to deliver it, and that if your colleagues had simply done their jobs, the entire arc of my life might have been different. I might have been thinner and living in Maine.
[ Hood slams ]
Tony: You do realize that harassing a federal employee is a felony, right?
Red: I’ll add it to the list.
[ Dembe gets in ]
Red: Drive.
[ Engine starts.]

 
[ Liz arrives at the outdoor burger place in Adams Morgan where Tom is waiting at a picnic table. He gets up to greet her ]
Liz: [ On phone ] 8:00 would be great. Uh-huh. Oh, I’m sorry – last name Keen. Thank you.
Tom: You planning a hot date?
Liz: Cascabel.
Tom: Oh, I love Cascabel’s.
Liz: I know. We’re going for dinner tonight.
[ They hug. Tom slips his hand in Liz’s purse and takes out her badge ]
Tom: What do you mean? You can’t stay for lunch?
Liz: No. I’m sorry. I got a call in the parking lot. It was Aram. He said we had a break in the case.
[ They sit across from each other at a picnic table ]
Tom: You don’t have to explain.
Liz: Ugh! Look at those chickens and the burgers and the fries! [ Sighs ]
[ Tom photographs Liz’s badge ]
Liz: [ Tastes Tom’s soda pop ] Mmm. Root beer. Come on. I should just be able to have lunch with my husband like a normal person.
Tom: Yeah, well, you are not a normal person. You don’t have a normal job, and that’s okay, ’cause that’s what I love about you.
Liz: You said you loved normal.
Tom: Well, I did. And I do. But normal. Abnormal. Deviant. Whatever you are, I love – except hurt, all right? So go save the day, catch the bad guy, whatever you got to do. Just don’t get yourself shot.
Liz: Okay.
Tom: Hey! Can I get one more of those?
[ They hug again. Tom slips Liz’s badge back into her purse ]
[ Liz turns and starts to leave ]
Tom: Cascabel’s at 8:00. You’re buying.
Liz: Hey – deviant.
Tom: It’s a big turn-on.

 
Aram: All right, after reviewing Ethan’s medical file, I found something interesting. Prior to 2011, it’s blank.
Samar: How can that be? He’s nine?
Liz: Because Ethan Isaacs wasn’t always Ethan Isaacs.
Aram: Exactly. The Isaacs adopted Ethan in 2010 through an NGO that briefly brought Syrian children to the U.S. Ethan Isaacs was born Shahir Ahmad in 2008 in Dahar, Syria, to this woman – Nirah Ahmad.
Samar: Ethan was taken by his mother.
Aram: And adoption records indicate that she has the same rare blood type as her son. And in a war-torn country like Syria, she must’ve known that a golden blood has almost no chance of surviving a traumatic injury.
Ressler: Well, if the mother’s a golden blood, then she’s also at risk. So, why didn’t she leave with her son?
Aram: To fight for her country. She was an active member of the Free Syrian Army until she disappeared in 2014.
Liz: Right after Ethan got sick.
Ressler: Three months before her first attack.
Cooper: Where are we on locating her?
Aram: When I ran her photo against the images taken from the traffic cams near the hospital, I found this.
[ Photo of Nirah and Nathan in car ]
Samar: Do we have an ID on the driver?
Aram: I am still working on that.
Ressler: According to his file, Ethan has progressive idiopathic myocarditis. Now, the procedure that could save his life would require transfusions of golden blood that the hospital just couldn’t provide. Ethan was being sent home to die.
Liz: Instead, his mother kidnapped him.
Samar: After kidnapping two other golden bloods.
Liz: We’ve been looking at this all wrong. She’s not kidnapping them to create an endling, she’s doing it so that they’ll have enough golden blood to perform the procedure.
Aram: And it’s not just the blood she’ll need. Myocarditis requires a heart transplant. And in order for his body not to reject it, the heart needs to come from another golden blood.
Cooper: Pull everything DHS has on Nirah Ahmad phone records, passports, known associates. Get into her life. Aram, widen the CCT grid and see if we can’t get a hit on that car. I want this woman found before she starts butchering people to save her son.

 
[ Singing softly in native language ]
Ethan: Where are we?
Nirah: Some place safe, habibi.
Ethan: I want my mommy.
Nirah: I’m right here, my darling. And when this is all over, I’ll explain everything to you, okay? I promise. All you need to know is I did everything to protect you.
[ Humming ]

 
Pete McGee: I don’t suppose you’re gonna tell me how you managed to get this.
Tom: How long till you ID the bones?
Pete: Way you’re all lathered up, you’d think we were looking at the bones of Osama bin Laden.
Tom: Just let me know the minute you get something, all right?
Pete: I get it.

 
Red: I have enemies. People who want to kill me. Why is not your concern. What matters is that, when it comes to my security, I take extraordinary precautions. Tigger and Pooh violated those precautions at your direction. I assumed it was to kill me. If it wasn’t, I need you to tell me why they did it.
Tony: It wasn’t to kill you. When people go away, they put their mail on hold, right? We keep a list – it’s a hold list of who’s away and how long they’re gonna be away for. And then, while they’re gone, we rob them. That’s it. I know their correspondence. I know what magazines they subscribe to. Based on that, maybe their area code. You know, I can guesstimate the value of the items inside the house.
Red: How extensive is the list?
Tony: I-It covers the city and the surrounding suburbs.
Red: But it could cover more.
Tony: More?
Red: The hold lists. Does every post office in the country have them?
Tony: Yeah. I suppose so.
Red: And the robbers?
Tony: I troll the dark web for interested parties. I take my commission in advance, and then I give out the address.
Red: [ Chuckling ] What a marvelous idea. Really marvelous. I mean, except, of course, when the owners rent out their homes while they’re away, but that’s a small burl in the wood we can sand down.
Tony: Wait, So you you don’t– you don’t live here?
[ Doorbell rings ]
Red: Excuse me.
Tony: And w-w-what did you mean by “we”? – Wait. Did he say “we”?

 
Liz: The endling’s name is Nirah Ahmad. She has a sick child who needs a heart transplant. My gut tells me that every attack she’s responsible for has been to finance this procedure. And I know for a fact that people will die if we don’t find out where that surgery is taking place.
Red: What else do you know?
Liz: Nothing. We have a photo, that’s it.
[ Liz shows Red the photo of Nirah, Nathan and the driver ]
Liz: And we don’t know black-market medicine. You do.
Red: I’ve seen him before.
Liz: Do you know where to find him?
Red: No, but I know who might. Let me grab my hat. This should be fun.

 
[ Doorbell rings ]
Red: Good afternoon, young lady. I’m here to pick up my labradoodle.
Receptionist: What’s the name? I don’t think we have any labradoodles in there.
Red: Her name is Edwina. She was dropped off by my dog walker, Hiram Toomey.
Receptionist: Of course. Edwina. I remember – darling dog. Right this way.
Red: Thank you.
Liz: Where are we? What is this place?
Red: The private clinic of Dr Melissa Lomay, general surgeon and owner and proprietor of Doctors Without Morals, the first choice in healthcare for the career criminal. Mm, such nimble fingers. Brings back memories.
Dr Melissa Lomay: Mm. Raymond. How’s your ass?
Red: Tight as a drum, thanks to you. We were camping in the altogether under the most delightful autumn moon in the Forest of Dean* when a wild pig [ Laughing ] came out of nowhere and gored my left flank, so to speak. And Melissa here not only slew the beast and salved my wound with a honey of–
Dr Lomay: Yarrow.
Red: –yarrow compress, but also made the most scrumptious pork pie in the monarchy.
Liz: Fascinating story, but we’re kind of in a hurry.
Dr Lomay: “We”?
Liz: Cynthia Rutherford. I’ve hired Mr. Reddington to find someone.
Red: One of your employees – Dr. Felix Dresner, if I’m remembering correctly.
Dr Lomay: He’s on a job.
Liz: Where?
Dr Lomay: You know I can’t give out that kind of information.
⋘⋙
Red: [ Hushed voice ] Melissa, while I appreciate your desire to protect the good doctor, he is a liability. Miss Rutherford isn’t the only one looking for him. The police are, as well. Help me find him before they do and I’ll cauterize the wound so nothing bleeds back to you.
Dr Lomay: What has he done?
Red: The less you know, the better. We simply need a location.

 
Aram: Okay, hold on. I think I may have just figured this out. Okay, the street address you gave me was zoned as a zoological research facility, but construction was put on hold due to this ongoing court battle. However, if I’m reading these permits right, it looks like the only section of the facility that was okayed was the second story. Agents Ressler and Samar are en route, maybe 10 minutes out.

 
[ Red, Liz and Dembe beat Ressler and Samar to the clandestine operating room ]
[ Ana Dewan and Nathan are under anesthesia as the surgery is about to begin ]
[ Surgical saw whirs ] [ Guns drawn ]
Liz: Step away from the tables! Hands! Everyone, hands where I can see them!
[ Nirah also draws a gun ]
Nirah: No. No. Keep going.
Liz: I know you’re trying to save your son, but I can’t let you hurt these people in order to do it.
Nirah: I will not let him die.
Liz: You’re gonna have to let us take him home.
Nirah: His home is with me. I gave him up once. I will not give him up again.
Liz: The hospital, then.
Nirah: You know the hospital can’t help.
Red: I know someone who can.
Liz: [ Whispers ] What are you talking about?
Red: Is there a force in the universe more powerful than a mother’s love for her child? The miracles of modern medicine pale in comparison. Can be life-saving. But not here. Not now. The next people who come storming in here will be throwing you all in paddy wagons. The best chance your son has is if we leave. Now.
Nirah: Leave?
Red: Dr. Dresner can stay to care for the others.
Nirah: No. Without the doctor or a viable heart, we can’t–
Red: I know.–
Nirah: We can’t.
Red: I’m asking the impossible for you to trust a complete stranger with the well-being of your son. But if you stay here, the authorities will take him and he will die. Please. Trust me.

 
Liz: Three patients for emergency evac.
Ressler: Keen? What’s going on? Where’s Nirah?
Liz: She and her son escaped before I got here.
Ressler: All right, I want birds in the air, units at every intersection in a two-mile radius. I want this woman found.

 
Red: I need your services.
Nik: No.
Red: It wasn’t a request.

 
Liz: We’re sorry for pulling you into this.
Nik: No, you’re not.
Liz: Okay, no. I’m not. If it means saving Ethan’s life.
Nik: You’re not sorry– you’re in this world – his world.

 
Nurse: The bypass machine is ready patient’s prepped. Soon as we have the donor heart, we can proceed.
Red: The heart is already here.
Nirah: [ To Nathan ] You know, the day that you were born, I was also born. [ Sobs ] It was the day I discovered the true meaning of my life was just to love and protect you forever.
[ Red pulls out his gun ]
Nik: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing? You cannot kill this woman to save that boy.
Red: Agreed. I have no intention of killing her.
[ He hands his gun to Nirah ]
Nirah: Strange – I always knew a golden blood would have to die to save his life [ Voice breaking ] but I just never imagined it would be me. [ 💥 ]
[ Thin Lizzy’s ♫ “Dancing in the Moonlight” plays ]

[ The operation proceeds ]

♪ When I passed you in the doorway
And you took me with a glance
Should have been on that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance

♪ Now we go steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
My father’s going crazy
Says you’re living in a trance

♪ Dancing in the moonlight
It’s caught me in a spotlight
It’s all right, dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot, summer night

Nik: Clear.
[ Nik paddles the transplanted heart to beating ]

♪ Well, it’s 3:00 in the morning
And I’m on the streets again
Disobeyed another warning
I should have been home by 10:00

 
Liz: What’s the end game?

♪ Now I won’t get out until Sunday

Liz: Nirah sacrifices herself to save her son, and then what? There has to be an ulterior motive – otherwise, why bother?
Red: I had no veiled intent in giving you this case, just a sincere desire to stop a criminal I believed to be truly reprehensible.
Liz: Now what do you believe?
Red: That a sinner can also be a saint.
Liz: Are we still talking about Nirah?
Red: Given the same circumstances, I’d like to think I’d be as brave as her. I know I’d want to be.

 
Liz: How is he?
Nik: He’s alive, for now. His heart’s beating on its own. An ambulance is on its way to take him to a proper hospital. If he makes it through the night, he has a chance.
Liz: Thank God.
Red: I’m in your debt.
Nik: Can I collect on it now?
Red: Name your price.
Nik: Never call me again – either of you.
Liz: Nik – you don’t mean that.
Nik: He’s the country’s most-wanted criminal.
Liz: He’s my father.
Nik: Which excuses nothing.

 
Cooper: An hour ago, Ethan Isaacs was brought back to the hospital. But you already knew that, didn’t you?
Liz: Yes.
Cooper: Which means you also know Nirah Ahmad was also brought in – for an autopsy to determine who shot her in the head and transplanted her heart into her son’s body.
Liz: She shot herself.
Cooper: You lied to your partners. Told them you didn’t know where Nirah and her son were, when you not only knew where they were, you conspired with Reddington to arrange an unauthorized operation.
Liz: If I hadn’t, Ethan would be dead.
Cooper: And his mother would be alive.
Liz: A criminal died to save the life of a child. I’m okay with that.
Cooper: Who cares if you’re okay with it? You don’t get to decide who lives and who dies. Neither does Reddington. This was his idea, wasn’t it?
Liz: Yes, and I agreed with him.
Cooper: I know. And that’s what concerns me – not just now, but going forward – his influence over you.
Liz: I’m not influenced by him.
Cooper: Elizabeth, you know how much I care about you. As much as if you were my own daughter. But you’re not, you’re his, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t make me concerned.
Liz: You have no reason to be concerned.
Cooper: Maybe. But if today was any indication, I think I do. I’m watching you, Elizabeth.

 
Tom: Listen, man, I’ve been calling all day.
Nik: Blame your father-in-law. He and Liz pulled me into something typically insane.
Tom: They what?
Nik: Don’t worry, I didn’t mention our little secret.
Tom: Well, what about Pete? ‘Cause I’ve called four times, and I got crickets.
Nik: He’ll call when he has something.
Tom: I don’t like it. He’s got the bones. He’s got the connection to CODIS. I mean, I could practically see the dollar signs in his eyes earlier today. What if he screws us?
Nik: Look, his place is on my way home. I’ll swing by, see what’s going on. Honestly, I don’t know who’s crazier – you or her or me for helping both of you.
Tom: Just call me the minute you hear from him.
[ Cellphone beeps ]

 
[ Door opens ]
Liz: I am the worst. I can’t believe I missed lunch and dinner.
Tom: Don’t worry about it. It seems like you had a tough day.
Liz: Yeah. It was complicated.

 
Red: Anthony. Welcome back.
Tony: Look, if this is about you wanting a piece of my business–
Red: It’s not.
Tony: Okay, good.
Red: It’s about me taking over your business.
Tony: Yeah- No! No! That’s not happening!
Red: Right now, you have 100% of a business that clears maybe $50,000, $100,000 a year – maybe. I’m offering you 10% of a business that will clear 100 times that.
Tony: How you gonna do that?
Red: The value of your information isn’t in what you are able to take out of these houses, it’s in who you’re able to put in them. Reliable safe houses are incredibly hard to find and always at a premium. Instead of robbing these homes, I propose we rent them to individuals who don’t want to be found. If you can secure hold lists in every state, we’ll have a network of reliable hideouts stretching all across the country. Can you get the lists?
Tony: Yeah. I could do that. You can get the people?
Red: Only the ones willing to pay through the nose.
Tony: So, I– we are gonna be rich?
Red: Obscenely. In the meantime, what do you have available for tomorrow night?

 
[ Nik arrives at Pete McGee’s apartment. He knocks, but this action causes the unlocked door to open, creaking. Cautiously, Nik enters the darkened room ]
Nik: Pete?
[ Nik goes over to the computer and looks at the screen ]

 
Liz: I’m terrified to admit it. I don’t want to admit it. But it’s true.
Tom: No, it’s not. Look, Liz, you’re kind, and you’re decent and honest. Reddington is not decent. He’s dishonest and he’s dangerous.
Liz: Reddington and I got Nik involved in something he never should’ve been a part of.
Tom: Nik’s a big boy. He can take care of himself.

[ Someone grabs Nik from behind, choking him ]

Liz: I know he can, but ultimately, it’s my responsibility. Nik would’ve never been involved with Reddington if it weren’t for me.

[ Nik struggles but his efforts are fruitless ]

And he’s been a good friend to us and I just feel like we’re never gonna see him again. And I don’t blame him.
Tom: He’ll come around. He will. Just give him some time. It’ll be fine.

[ Nik falls to the floor. His eyes stare blankly ]
[ The assailant takes the suitcase with the bones and leaves ]

*Trivia: ⋙ The Endling is all mixed up in my heart w that grieving mother of one of the heroes killed in Niger. What mother wouldn’t die for her child?

 
The Forest of Dean is a Royal Forest in Glocestershire, England. It borders on Wales. Boars are indeed a hazard in the Forest of Dean. (Wikipedia ) “In the altogether” was a phrase new to me. According to several dictionaries, it means naked.

⋙ Song: Dancing in the Moonlight: I include the complete lyrics to the songs because I think they can provide additional context. This verse is a great example:

♪ Now I won’t get out until Sunday
I’ll have to say I stayed with friends
But it’s a habit worth forming
If the means justify the ends

Liz’s struggle between Red’s ethic and Cooper’s is captured in the last two lines, yet these lines are obscured by dialogue in the scene.

 
⋙ TheAtlantic: The Most Precious Blood on Earth http://theatln.tc/2xS0Usb
// 10/27/2014, “For people with very rare types, obtaining lifesaving blood can involve a complex network of donors and doctors that stretches across the globe.”

I did a study a while back looking at medical claims in The Blacklist. I was surprised that of the dozen or so claims I checked, only one struck me as a wee bit preposterous. Still, I checked the “golden blood” claim. It seemed outlandish. Sure enough, it’s for real. This article indicates more people than 10 or so may have RH(null), but there are only that small a number “willing to donate.” So it would be reasonable that that’s how many would be in the database Aram used.

Jon Bokenkamp, The Blacklist creator and showrunner, is married to a physician, which is clearly an asset.

By Thin Lizzy

♪ When I passed you in the doorway
Well you took me with a glance
I should have took that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance

♪ Now we go steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
And my father he’s going crazy
He says I’m living in a trance

♪ But I’m dancing in the moonlight

It’s alright, alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

♪ It’s three o’clock in the morning
And I’m on the streets again
I disobeyed another warning
I should have been in by ten

♪ Now I won’t get out until Sunday
I’ll have to say I stayed with friends
But it’s a habit worth forming
If the means justify the ends

♪ Dancing in the moonlight
It’s caught me in its spotlight
It’s alright, alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

♪ And I’m walking home
The last bus has long gone
But I’m dancing in the moonlight

It’s alright, alright
Dancing in the moonlight

♪ Dancing in the moonlight (I’m dancing in the moonlight)

Dancing in the moonlight (dancing in the moonlight)
