Let’s start off with discussing some major twists from last week’s episode shall we? Basically we’ve learned what The Fulcrum is and that Liz has some connection to it. This was then confirmed when she found a chip hidden inside her favorite teddy bear that she still has from her childhood. You know, the one that’s all burned. Anyways, after undergoing chemical interrogation under Luther Braxton’s orders, Liz remembered seeing Reddington the night of the fire, the night her father was killed. Or so she thinks. Dr. Selma Orchard (Gloria Reuben) came back to tell her that she believes someone tried very hard to have her memories buried and that those memories aren’t telling her the truth. So just because she thinks she saw Reddington doesn’t mean he’s the one that was behind it, he could have been there in a different capacity.
The official synopsis of “Ruslan Denisov”:
