Red was determined to figure out who the mole is as "The Blacklist" opened its latest adventure. By the end of the hour, he'd managed to get both the list he was seeking by giving up "The Alchemist," as well as the mole. We'd say that's a pretty good hour for our favorite bad guy.
After snatching the list away from Agent Keene without telling her why he wanted it -- that Red! -- the criminal mastermind had one more stop to make. The episode ended with Agent Malik opening her door to find Red sitting in her house.
"Hello, Meera. I trust you know why I'm here," Red said calmly.
"Yes. You're here to kill me," Malik responded. "Because I'm the mole."
Of course, it's pretty unlikely that Red will do anything of the sort. In fact, Agent Malik probably has all kinds of information he'd like to get his hands on. Plus, Red probably knows 100 ways he can use her to turn the tables and gain an advantage on whoever set her up as a mole in the FBI in the first place.
"The Blacklist" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
