🔴 Script 8:22 Konets (“The End”)

 

Brief (Where we’re at):

Red spirited Liz away to the “epicenter” of The Blacklist ~ an intelligence gathering operation located in a Cold War era, nuclear blast resistant bunker in Latvia ~ to tell her “the truth” about who she is, who he is and what happened to her mother. He does this, through the magic of cinema, by telling a story which is narrated by key people in the series, living and dead. They include her mother Katarina Rostova (at about 35yo), her father the real Raymond Reddington, Red and Katarina’s friend Ilya Koslov, Katarina’s mentor Ivan Stepanov and lastly, Tatiana Petrova who we and Liz find out – for the first time – was not Liz’s mother but another operative resembling her who also took assignments from Liz’s grandfather Dominic (Dom) Wilkinson.
 
It was Tatiana, not Dom’s daughter Katarina, who was set up to be killed by a car bomb in Belgrade. Dom planned that Tatiana would be killed, so that the KGB, Neville Townsend snd others would believe the real Katarina had died so they’d stop hunting her. But Tatiana escaped the blast with her life though her husband was killed. The KGB and others still wanted her so Tatiana hid, eventually getting help from Red. Red and Tatiana apparently then struck up a romantic relationship, so years later, she ‘betrayed him with a kiss’ before injecting him with Ketamine, and torturing him unsuccessfully for information to prove she had been set up by Dom. When that didn’t work, she insinuated herself into Liz’s life gaining access to Dom who, under torture and having hallucinations, told her “everything,” not only that Red was N-13, but Katarina’s new identity and location. Red intercepted Tatiana before she could tell the Townsend organization, and killed her. The murder was witnessed by Liz. Believing that Tatiana was her mother Katarina, Liz then went on a rampage against Red, which eventually landed her at the #1 spot on The Blacklist.
 
But if Tatiana wasn’t Katarina – who Red says remains “hidden” – where/who is Katarina today? And who is Red?
 
In Latvia, Red admitted to Liz that he is N-13, the operative who acquired the Sikorsky Archive, the 13 packets of classified information taken from the KGB files when the Soviet Union fell. This information was the “seed” from which Red’s global operation grew. This operation, Red tells Liz, has two purposes: to keep Liz safe and her mother hidden. He insists he is ‘not a Russian asset and Ivan Stepanov is just an old friend.’ In the story told by Red and narrated by Katarina and Ilya Koslov, Katarina and Ilya “created” Red because Katarina didn’t want Liz to bear the burden of having killed her father; and so that Red could keep a protective eye on Liz. So Katarina and Ilya “resurrected” the identity of Raymond Reddington. But someone went under the knife to have plastic surgery and it’s not clear who. There are even hints that it might have been Katarina herself, which would solve two problems: who Red is and where Katarina went. But – wow.
 
In any case, right when Liz was insisting on finally getting these answers, reality intervened. Liz was shot through the upper abdomen in a hail of gunfire as Neville Townsend’s men raided the facility. (Liz forgot to turn off the tracking chip that allowed Townsend to track her and Red to Latvia.) Townsend reverted to his prior dastardly plan of killing Liz as Red watches, so whatever Liz’s take on Red’s latest version of events, that was put aside. They were on the same side now. Red got up from assisting Liz to talk to Townsend, leaving his pistol within reach of Liz. She took the hint and shot Townsend in the leg, allowing her, with help from Red and Dembe, to retreat to a super-hardened “Nest” beneath the bunker. The Nest is capable of withstanding a 20 megaton nuclear blast. It’s also equipped with the means of incinerating intruders above. So, Townsend is toast – but his henchman Vandyke was outside of the bunker and will likely be seen again.

༺✦ ♤ ✦༻

 
[ The epicenter of Red’s operations, a Cold War era bunker in the countryside outside Riga, Latvia ]
[ Under assault by Neville Townsend and his mercenaries, Red, a wounded Liz, and Dembe retreated to The Nest, a super-hardened core capable of withstanding a 30 megaton nuclear blast. Once safe inside, Red unleashed a flammable gas in the complex above and lit it on fire ]
[ It’s a few hours later. The lock on The Nest’s hatch turns ] [ Creaking ]
[ Dembe emerges from The Nest. The destroyed room is still full of smoke. He looks around and finds the remains of a human being. He lifts the corpse’s hand and photographs the fingerprints ] [ Beep🔅]
[ Red helps Liz, who was shot through the upper abdomen, out of The Nest ] [ Grunting ]
Red: Down.
[ Liz sits down ] [ Groaning ]
[ Dembe’s phone beeps🔅] [ It’s a match ]
Dembe: It’s him. It’s Townsend.
Liz: We should go. There could be others.
Dembe: I’ll call Edward, tell him to have a medical team standing by.
Red: Can you walk?
Liz: Walk? Townsend’s dead. I could fly.
[ Liz gets up ] [ Grunts ]

 
[ In Red’s plane, Red’s Doctor has examined Liz ]
Red’s Doctor: The bullet went clear through. No organs were damaged. She should be fine.
Red: Thank you. Have yourself a drink. Make it a double. You deserve it.
Dembe: [ To Red ] You deserve it, too. You won.
Red: I wish there was time for celebration, but Mother Nature and the criminal world quickly exploit a vacuum. We should set a time to see Harold. And call Dr. Clemons. Thank him for his services and tell him they’re no longer necessary.
Dembe: Did you find another doctor?
Red: No.
Dembe: You’re giving up. Why? You just said there’s another fight to be won.
Red: There is. But it can’t really be won unless I’m gone. Perhaps I will have that drink after all. Toast to better days. [ Gets up and heads toward the galley ]

 
[ Liz is recuperating at home in DC. Dembe is at her bedside ]
Liz: Will it end when I know? When Reddington’s told me the last of it, will I be able to live a normal life?
Dembe: What is normal?
Liz: [ Chuckles ] Not this.
Dembe: We live the lives we are meant to live. I understand you blaming Raymond for how yours turned out. I blame him, too sometimes. But fate takes the laboring oar, in our lives and his. Fate and destiny.
[ Red enters ]
Red: [ Cheerfully ] Ah! You’re up. Excellent. I have a bit of a surprise–
[ Agnes comes running in and leaps onto the bed ]
Agnes: Mommy!
Red: [ Laughs ]
Liz: Hey! Oh! Pumpkin! What are you doing here?
Agnes: It was Pinky’s idea.
Liz: Pinky?
Agnes: He says his name is Red, but I prefer pink.
Red: I thought she’d be just the thing, and as it turns out, Mrs. French and I share a great love for Jacques Tati, so–
Mrs French: [ Chuckles ] How are you, my dear?
Liz: I’m better now. Thanks to Pinky.

 
[ The Post Office ] [ Elevator doors open. Red and Dembe get off ]
Aram: Oh. Mr. Reddington.
Red: Aram.
[ Red sees the bunch of helium balloons Aram is filling ]
Red: Nice.
[ Aram inhales from one of the balloons ] [ Air hisses ]
Aram: [ High-pitched voice ] I heard about Townsend. We’re so relieved.
Red: What’s the celebration? Who’s getting well?
Aram: [ Still high-pitched ] Oh, uh, these are for Agent Ressler. He’s off the ventilator. The doctors are saying he’s doing so much better.
Dembe: That’s good news.
[ Air hisses ]
Aram: Care for a toke? I’d give almost anything to hear you talk like a member of the Lollipop Guild.
Red: [ Laughs ]

 
[ Cooper’s office ] [ Knock on door ]
Cooper: Come in.
[ Red and Dembe enter ]
Cooper: What a relief, knowing the threat to Agent Keen is gone.
Red: [ High-pitched voice ] Yes, we’re all quite happy with the way things turned out, Harold.
Cooper: And here I thought that Aram was the only man-child around here. [ To Dembe ] Please tell me you’re above such things.
Dembe: [ High-pitched voice ] I think it’s childish and completely unprofessional.
[ Air hissing ] [ Red and Dembe let their balloons fly away ]
Red: Please indulge our weakness for life’s simple pleasures. We’ve come bearing dark tidings.
Cooper: You want to tell me? Or maybe you’d like to do some finger painting first.
Red: [ Normal voice ] I would. More than you can possibly imagine. But unfortunately, Townsend’s death is about to trigger a firestorm of criminal activity. In the absence of a clear successor, everyone will be vying for control of his empire.
Cooper: I assume you’re here to give me a case, that the next name on the Blacklist will be in service to helping you take advantage of the situation.
[ Red gives Cooper a thick manila envelope ]
Red: I do have a bunch of likely contenders for the throne, and, yes, I am giving you them so that someone can take advantage of this situation. But not me.
Cooper: How magnanimous.
Red: I’ve heard that one’s true colors emerge at the end. I’d love to think that magnanimity is one of mine.
Cooper: The end? I knew you were sick, but – exactly how bad is it?
Red: Harold, over the years, you’ve served as a wise counselor to Elizabeth. I’d like to know that in my absence that would continue.
Cooper: Raymond. How sick are you?
Red: Do I have your word?
Cooper: Of course. I’ll always do everything I can for Elizabeth.
Red: Thank you. You’re a good friend.
[ Door opens ] [ Red and Dembe leave ]

 
[ Dembe and Red descend the yellow metal stairs ]
Dembe: Is this really necessary?
Red: It’s the best way I can think of to ensure her protection.
[ Elevator button clicks ✵ ]
Dembe: Your blood tests are better. The treatment is working. You’re getting better, not worse.
Red: I’m dying. Whether it’s this year or the next doesn’t matter. What I’ve got doesn’t go away. It just takes a pause, regroups, and comes back stronger, deadlier.
[ Elevator doors clang open ]

 
[ Red enters Liz’s bedroom. She is sitting up in a chair ]
Red: Where’s Agnes?
Liz: Mrs. French took her to the park. Thank you for bringing her here. That was very thoughtful.
[ Red takes a seat on the bed, facing Liz ]
Red: The conversation we’ve been having. Or trying to have. About who I am and why I came into your life.
Liz: How my mother got you to watch over me.
Red: Your mother. Yes. She foresaw this moment.
[ He takes an envelope out of his vest pocket ]
Red: The answers are here. In a letter she wrote to you.
Liz: Why do you have a letter my mother wrote to me?
Red: For when the time was right, to let you know the truth.
Liz: I think we can both agree it’s long past time.
Red: One condition remains.
Liz: No. No conditions.
Red: One task. Then it’s done.
Liz: What could possibly be left for me to do?
Red: To take my life.
Liz: ⋘⋙ What do you mean?
Red: I mean literally and metaphorically. I’m dying. You’ve known for a while that I’m sick. Before I die – I need to make sure you’re protected.
Liz: A-And how will killing you do that?
Red: By showing the world that you’re a force to be reckoned with, that you did what no one else could – no law enforcement agency, no criminal rival. You found and executed Raymond Reddington.
Liz: Y-You know I don’t want to take over your empire.
Red: I do. And under other circumstances, I wouldn’t want you to. But Neville Townsend learned certain things about me, things that we should assume others now know as well. I’m afraid that people will come for you just like Townsend did. It took all of our strength to fight him. You’ll need help to fight the others. This is a way to get it.
[ Red turns the envelope over and puts it back inside his vest ]
Red: It’s quite a story. Full of ambition and hope. Love and loss.
Liz: How does it end?
Red: You’ll find out.

 
[ At home, Red listens to some light jazz music ] [ Hank Mobley’s ♪ “dig dis” plays ]

 
[ In a park, Agnes runs up to Liz ]
Liz: Oh, you’re so cute! Ohh! I could just squeeze you like this forever.
Agnes: Where’s Pinky?
Liz: Well– I don’t know where Pinky is. I never quite know where Pinky’s gonna show up next.
Agnes: He’s funny. He tells me stories.
Liz: Oh, yeah? What kind of stories?
Agnes: About a Russian princess. She doesn’t want to be a princess, but other people keep telling her it’s her destiny.
[ Liz gets down on her knees ]
Liz: What do you think she should do?
Agnes: Mom, she’s a princess! [ She spins around like a ballerina ] [ Giggles ]

 
[ Liz talks to Mrs French in the park ]
Liz: I got train tickets for 4:00 p.m. I’ll meet you at the station. Got some people I want to say goodbye to. It won’t take long to close up the apartment in New York, and we’ll sleep on the jet and be in Europe by this time tomorrow.
Mrs French: This will be so good for you two. To get away from it all.
Liz: Yeah. I hope so.

 
[ Red at home; jazz music continues ]
Red: We’ve had some times.
Dembe: We have.

 
[ Cooper walks along a sidewalk ] [ A car pulls up ]
[ Horn honking ] [⚡️Brakes squeal ⚡️]
Liz: Get in.
[⚡️Tires screech⚡️]
Liz: Have you spoken to Reddington?
Cooper: I knew he was sick, but I had no idea it was this severe.
[ Engine shuts off, gearshift clicks ]
Liz: He asked me to take over for him.
Cooper: I’m not surprised.
Liz: I said no. I’m– I’m leaving. We’re gonna get away. [ Sniffles ] I wanted to tell you in person and thank you for everything that you’ve done.
Cooper: So your mind’s made up? About taking over for Reddington?
Liz: Well, is there a decision to make?
Cooper: There’s so much I want for you. Above all, I want you to be safe. Right now you’re a fugitive on the Most Wanted List. If you took over for Reddington, inherited the Blacklist, I could probably convince Panabaker to give you immunity. You’d be protected. You’d have a reason for taking over that you could feel good about. We could still work together. Taking over for Reddington has risks, physical and emotional. Both of those concern me. But you not doing it concerns me more.
Liz: How’s Ressler?
Cooper: On the mend. Worried about you.
Liz: Yeah, I want to see him.
Cooper: Probably safer to call.
Liz: Yeah. Where’s the fun in that?

 
[ Inside the hospital, Liz grabs some scrubs from a cart. She reaches into a closet and grabs a lab coat and stethoscope. She finds Ressler’s hospital room and climbs into the bed alongside him ]
Ressler: [ Wakes up, sighs ] Hey.
Liz: I heard you’re feeling better.
Ressler: Well, I am now.
Liz: [ Breathes deeply ] I’ve got a decision to make.
Ressler: Cooper’s wrong.
Liz: He called you?
Ressler: You’re not like Reddington, okay? You’re better. Look. You’re good. Too good to do what he wants you to do.
Liz: I don’t feel good.
Ressler: You’re not a criminal. Okay? Pretending to be one is not gonna keep you safe.
[ They kiss ]

 
[ The Post Office ] [ Cooper, Aram and Park are going over the background information Red gave them ]
Cooper: Russian mob. Serbians. Italians. Chinese. And a few Americans and Brits thrown in for good measure. All of them did business with Townsend, and, according to Reddington, they all want a piece.
Aram: And Mr. Reddington doesn’t?
Park: Lemme guess, he wants us to move on the United Nations of Crime so he can take over.
Cooper: Yes, but not for himself. For Elizabeth, so she can take over.
Aram: That’s not funny.
Cooper: It wasn’t meant to be.
Aram: But she can’t. I mean– Even if she could, she wouldn’t. Would she?
Park: Eh, why would he let her? What would he do? Go play golf?
Cooper: Reddington’s sick. He wouldn’t say with what, but it’s clearly terminal.
Aram: Wait. Mr. Reddington? But– He always– He always seems so invulnerable.
Cooper: He isn’t. Neither is Elizabeth. If she decides to take over for Reddington, she’s going to need our help. Starting with a workup on the people in this folder.

Liz: Excuse me?
Beth Ryker: I’m sorry. I don’t mean to stare. Are you Agent Keen? Elizabeth Keen?
Liz: Do we know each other?
Beth: Uh, Beth Ryker. Daniel Ryker’s my dad. General Ryker.

Beth: He said not to take it off.

Liz: Oh, my God. That can’t be you.
Beth: I-I think about you all the time, what you did.
Liz: Uh–
Beth: You saved my life.
Liz: You were a very brave little girl.
Beth: You probably don’t remember the story you told me, about the scar your dad gave you, how it was – your secret weapon.

[ Flashback: ]

Man on PA: Now boarding on Track 9.

Beth: I can’t believe it was really you.

Man on PA: All aboard.

Liz: Thanks for saying hello.
Beth: My dad told me that if you hadn’t defused that bomb, thousands of people would have died. Most people just – I don’t know, live their lives. But you made the world a better place. So whatever you decide to do, I really hope you’ll keep doing that.
[ Liz makes a phone call ]

 
[ Cellphone buzzing ] [ Beep🔅]
Red: [ Sighs ]
Dembe: Elizabeth.
Liz: Tell him I want to meet hear him out.
Dembe: Okay. Hold on. [ Beep🔅]
Dembe: [ To Red ] She wants to discuss your proposal.
Red: Okay. Tell her we’re in New York.
Dembe: [ Beep🔅] Can you meet in New York? … I’ll text you.
[ Beep🔅 ] [ Cellphone snaps shut ]
Red: Is it wrong, what– what I’m asking her to do?
Dembe: It’s not that simple. Right and wrong have never been simple in your life. You love her, and you want to keep her safe. You’re desperately trying to do that.
Red: I wonder if it makes any difference.

 
[ Mrs French brings Agnes to meet Liz ]
Liz: Ohh! Hi, baby. Who’s ready to go to New York?

 
[ Birds singing ]
[ A park in New York ] [ Red looks up through the tree branches ] [ Dembe walks up to him with Liz ]
Dembe: Raymond.
Red: [ Rising ] Ah. Elizabeth. Thank you for coming. I understand you’ve given some thought to my proposal.
Liz: I have.
Red: And?
Liz: I need you to explain something to me.
Red: Please. [ Motioning to sit on the park bench ]
Liz: If we go through with this, if I actually do this – what makes you think it’s gonna work? Me, as your heir? Why do you think people are gonna accept that?
Red: They’ll accept it when I’m dead in the street. They’ll accept it because you’re a criminal.
Liz: Is that what I am? Or is that what I am because of you?
Red: I’ve considered that question, so many times. How things might have been different if I had never re-entered your life. Would you be safer? Happier? Was it, uh, my presence alone that brought you to this crossroads? Or maybe none of that ever mattered. Maybe you were born to this out of a lie, the daughter of a spy, genetically predisposed to deception and danger. I don’t know. I’ve thought and thought about it. And I just don’t know. What I do know is that – whether it’s chance or karma, DNA or fate, or just bad luck – this is where you are now. This is who you’ve become. A criminal. A fugitive. And taking my life – is a way forward.
Liz: Hm. ⋘⋙ Humor me. How would it work?
⋘⋙
[ Red and Liz stroll down a broad lane in the park ]
Red: The restaurant’s been undergoing renovations for over a year now, and we’ll be opening soon. But first, Pascual’s having a little soirée for family and friends tomorrow night. I’ll be there, as will Dembe. We’ll have dinner, see some friends. By 1:00, I suspect things will be winding down. The families will be gone. I’ll say my goodbyes and exit. Dembe will stay back, thank Pascual. You’ll be waiting in your car parked down the street with a clear view of the entrance.
[ Birds cawing ]
Red: It should happen on the sidewalk, right in front of the restaurant – and happen fast. By the time the police respond, you’ll be long gone. I’m quite sure Pascual will have to show them to the CCTV footage. And, of course, it’ll be leaked. And within hours, the image of you standing over my body will be on the front page of every major newspaper in the world.
Liz: You’ve really thought this through.
Red: Yes.
Liz: Tomorrow night.
Red: Yes. ⋘⋙ What?
Liz: [ Chuckles ] Of all the times I’ve wanted to kill you. I don’t think I can pull the trigger.

Thrilling and challenging. A blessing and a curse. Whatever it’s been – it’s become who I am. But at some point, it became clear to me that I wasn’t really in control of any of this. I thought I was. At times, I-I feel like I am. But I’m not.

Red: No matter how much I try or care or give of myself – I have no control over how any of this ends. And that is crushing if I think about it too much. So I don’t think about it. I ignore it, deny it, and try to convince myself that I can keep Elizabeth safe, Agnes safe, which is why I-I feel I have to do this. I have to believe that I can help– Because the alternative is ju– It’s just–
Dembe: I understand.
Red: I know you do.
[ Red gives Dembe the envelope with Katarina’s letter ]
Red: Only when I’m gone. Give it to Elizabeth, but only when I’m gone.
⋘⋙
[ Liz rises and sticks the gun in the back of her jeans ]
⋘⋙
[ Red rises from his chair ]
Red: You ready?
Dembe: No.
Red: Me neither. [ He puts on his fedora ] Let’s go.

 
[ Liz is parked in her car, talking to Agnes ]
Agnes: What’s wrong, Mom?
Liz: Oh, nothing. I’m just– I’m just sad. But I’ll be okay. We had such fun in New York, didn’t we?
Agnes: Why are you sad?
Liz: Well, uh– Someone that I care about is sick. He’s– very sick.
Agnes: Did he see a doctor?
Liz: No. Unfortunately, the doctors can’t help him get any better.
Agnes: Is he gonna die?
Liz: Yeah, honey. He is.
Agnes: That is sad.
Liz: Yeah. But I think my friend is trying to be brave. I think he feels fortunate.
Agnes: What’s “fortunate”?
Liz: Well, I think my friend knows he’s lived a good life that he’s seen a lot of neat and different places and he has a lot of friends that love him.

 
[ Dembe is driving Red to the restaurant ]
Red: Dembe, will you stop the car, please?
Dembe: What’s the matter?
Red: I want to walk.
Dembe: It’s not safe.
[ Dembe pulls over; Red gets out ]
Red: I’ll meet you at the restaurant.
[ Red walks along the sidewalk, looks around, looks up at the sky, reaches out his hand to touch some flowers ]

 
Liz: So even though he’s sad he’s gonna die he feels fortunate that he’s lived a good life.
Agnes: Your friend’s blessed.
Liz: Yeah! Blessed! Where did you learn a word like that, smartie?
Agnes: You always say that even though Daddy had to go to Heaven, he was okay with that because he felt blessed to know me when I was a little baby.
Liz: Yeah. I think my friend feels blessed, like Daddy.
Agnes: I feel blessed because of you.
Liz: [ Voice breaking ] Oh, honey. Me too. I’m blessed because of you. And don’t forget, no matter what happens, I love you to the moon and back.
Agnes: I love you, too. More than hearts.
Liz: One more sleep, okay? I’ll see you in the morning.
Agnes: [ Smooches the phone ]
[ Cellphone beeps ]

 
[ Indistinct conversations ]
[ Red is at Pascual’s. There is much activity but Red seems disconnected from it ]

 
[ Ressler talks to Cooper from his hospital bed ]
Ressler: No, I spoke with Keen myself – She turned Reddington down, said she was gonna leave the country. I think she already left.
Cooper: Except she hasn’t. Elizabeth phoned Aram. She’s in DC. She also asked for his forgiveness.
Ressler: Forgiveness? For what?
Cooper: Your guess is as good as mine. But I fear it has something to do with Reddington positioning her to be the heir to his criminal empire.
Ressler: So he convinced her. But now they’re gonna need to convince the world.
Cooper: I don’t follow.
Ressler: Look, you and I both know the people who work in Reddington’s world aren’t gonna accept Keen’s taking of the reins just because he announced it. If he wants her to be taken seriously, if she’s gonna be respected in his world, she’s gonna have to make a statement, demonstrate her value.
Cooper: Which is why she’s gonna need Aram’s forgiveness.
[ Park and Aram enter ]
Cooper: Agent Ressler, I’m putting you on speaker with Park and Mojtabai.
Aram: Whoa! Hey! Hey! Good news! Yeah, what’s that?
Ressler: What do you mean?
Aram: You’re alive. That is incredible news. I-I literally thought you were not gonna make it.
Cooper: Well, thankfully, he did. Do we have any updates?
Park: I still can’t reach Reddington, Dembe, or Agent Keen.
Ressler: Oh, my God. That’s it. He’s not gonna make it. She’s gonna kill Reddington.
Aram: Wait. Who is?
Ressler: Keen. She’s gonna kill him. She’s gonna make a statement, demonstrate that she’s no longer an agent.
Aram: Kill Mr. Reddington.
Ressler: That’s how she’s gonna prove to the world that she’s seizing control of his empire, and she’s gonna do it in public. She’s gonna– She’s gonna kill him.
Cooper: Reddington was here, talking about his death, talking about taking care of Elizabeth when he’s gone.
Park: Wait. Back up. You think Reddington knows this is happening?
Ressler: No, I think it’s his idea❗
Cooper: The party. At the restaurant. That son of a bitch is gonna sacrifice himself to save her life.
Aram: We have to get to him. Convince him to call it off.

♫ Somewhere Only We Know
By Reneé Dominique (originally by Keane)

♪ I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

♪ Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

♪ I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

♪ Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

♪ And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?

♪ Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

♪ And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know?
Somewhere only we know?

♫ Keep Watch
By Adult Karate

♪ Keep watch over me
I’d like to think that all the other ones are dead and done
Just think how it used to be
Not a cavalcade of all these useless memories

♪ Comfort your fears
As if the world wasn’t ending any day, anyway
We can stand up for things we need
But what if our voices are drowned out underneath an endless sea

♪ Run from the police
And fill your arms wide with all the sanity you wish you could steal
Just think how it used to feel
Before the sadness and the fear had drilled a hole right through you

♪ Keep watch over me
We’re scared to believe
All the things that we read
Minds desperate to feed
Veins aching to bleed
Voices will secede
Minds sick with disease
Just three words I will need

♪ Smog wash over me
And let all the voices repeat on and on, endlessly
We can run until the work’s complete
But what if our fate is to be choking on the lives we lead
Keep watch over me
We’re scared to believe
All the things that we read
Minds desperate to feed
Veins aching to bleed
Voices will secede
Minds sick with disease
Just three words I will need

Final Scenes:

Youtube user Neti Mau posted the final scenes of the episode, including Liz’s memories before her death. Title: “The Blacklist – Elizabeth Keen Death 8×22 Season Finale”: https://youtu.be/iRw1jOdS2ws

(The 8:22 ending includes a rich spectrum of moments in Liz’s life and such excellent acting that I can’t begin to describe it in words.)
