The Blacklist - Alistair Pitt

Reddington (James Spader) uses the resources of the FBI to further a personal vendetta in tracking down a negotiator (Tony Shalhoub) who attempts to unite two warring crime families through marriage in order the further the interests of his own conglomerate. Of course to further his cause Alistair Pitt will not only have to convince the heads of both families that such a union is in their best interest but also remove any obstacles (such as the young man's current fiance). Tied to the actions of one of the negotiator's former deals, we're given flashbacks to Red's relationship with a woman named Josephine (Stephanie Szostak) and his reasoning for vengeance on the negotiator whose actions left her a broken shell of her former self.

"Alistair Pitt" includes a pair of first B-stories. In the first Lizzie (Megan Boone) discovers adoption to be more difficult than she was hoping. And in the second we see Tom (Ryan Eggold) reach out to Gina Zanetakos (Margarita Levieva) for a job. Although the robbery goes off without a hitch, based on next week's preview, Tom may be unprepared for the fallout of working for an ex-girlfriend with murderous tendencies.
