Raymond Reddington searches for the person who poisoned him in The Blacklist season 4 winter finale. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 14.
The Blacklist season 4 winter finale opens with Red talking to a doctor. The doctor tells him that he’s dying.
Red makes a call. He says, “Gather their task force. I need your help to solve a murder.”
Red arrives at the FBI headquarters. He tells Donald Ressler, “Your prayers have been answered, Donald. I’m dying.”
Later, a man named Asa Hightower gets into a bed with a woman. He tells her, “Don’t worry, sweetheart. It’ll be okay. I won’t ever give up on you. I promise. It’ll be just fine.” She cries a tear.
Red consults his doctor again. He asks him about who brought him into the hospital.
While Red is searching for the person who poisoned him, he finds a woman in the trunk of a car. He asks who did this to her. She says, “Is that a sick joke? You did!”
Elizabeth Keen shows the task force a video of a man named Robert Dolly cheating on his wife Helen Dolly. Helen was poisoned in a similar manner to Red, so Liz believes that Robert may have hired a blacklister called The Apothecary to poison her.
The woman who Red found in the car tells him that she heard the name of the guy who lives in the apartment where he found her. She tells him that it was Marvin Gerard.
The task force talks to Robert’s mistress. She says that she had nothing to do with Dolly’s murder, but she knows that he does it through an eye drop he gives her.
Red walks into a restaurant. He sees a meal set up. The door to the kitchen is barricaded. He opens it and sees many of his associates inside.
Liz and Ressler are able to locate Asa Hightower’s house and figure out that he’s The Apothecary. They find his wife there and ask where her husband went.
Liz calls Red and tells him that they have The Apothecary in custody. He tells her that he’s sending someone to her with the bottle of poison that was used on him. He has a coughing fit.
Ressler interrogates The Apothecary. He asks who hired him and how to cure Red. But, he says that his clients contact him anonymously. But, he does give them an antidote.
At the end of the episode, Red realizes that Dembe poisoned him. Meanwhile, Dembe gets away and enters a subway.
