The Blacklist - Dr. Hans Koehler

The Blacklist returns for a Sixth Season with Elizabeth (Megan Boone) and her half-sister (Fiona Dourif) looking for answers about the true identity of the man who has been calling himself Raymond Reddington (James Spader) for decades. Of course there is also a case of the week, this one involves a plastic surgeon (Kenneth Tigar) who specializes in dangerous clientele (including Reddington). While after important information of his own, Reddington helps the FBI track down the surgeon but not before the doctor meets a gruesome end thanks to his latest client (Christopher Lambert) who alludes FBI custody and disappears with plans of his own.

During the search into her father's past, the episode returns to reexamine a few plot points (and rewrite some history, as it is want to do). Liz recovers the memory of killing her father (who, interestingly enough, we see shot but not actually dead in any of the flashbacks) which only spurs her on further to find the truth about what happened to the original Raymond Reddington (without ever once considering the possibility that this man, although he may not be Reddington, could still be her father). The episode also returns Samar (Mozhan MarnĂ²) to the team, offering a scene with a doctor that could foreshadow some problems for the agent at some point this season.
