After a few rocky episodes in The Blacklist, we were finally delivered an episode that made our insides feel all tingly again. Of course, I’m referring to the 19th episode of season 3 where Liz finally delivers a healthy baby but she also *gasps* tells the audience goodbye??? dies?? takes a break because she’s had enough??
I’m not sure we’ll find very soon. However, I am almost entirely convinced that the show HASN’T killed their main character. First of all, we were all expecting Megan Boone (Liz) to take off for a few episodes as a maternity leave for her actual pregnancy. Sure, “killing off” the main character hadn’t crossed my mind. I thought that they would make Liz to take on some special mission to find her mother or something.
This twist was bold from the producers’ part. But (in my opinion) the show is not bold enough to actually carry out their seemingly shocking decision. I believe Liz is still alive. I feel like this is all arranged behind closed curtains.
As much as I like Liz’s dynamic with Red – something that I would quite miss from Liz’s death – I hope I’m proven wrong and she’s actually dead. Come on, you have to admit it’s always fun when shows pull a Game Of Thrones.
With a The Blacklist episode that’s so full of powerful performances from all fronts (James Spader, we’re looking at you), we also have some really good reaction-tweets about it. We collected our favorite for you:

FAMILY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND
Corniest scene on #Blacklist playing Having My Baby during Liz's C-section.

Can’t disagree with that. 🙈
It's just a TV show, but tonight's #TheBlacklist gave me all the feels. For real.

“It’s just a TV show” is something I’ve told myself a hundreds of times and it’s never working.

“38% sure” HA HA HA.
If you're still watching #TheBlacklist, what is it even about anymore?

So I woke up, remembered the last episode of #theBlacklist, and started sobbing again. These are not the feelings I am looking for.

We feel you.

Only James Spader, ladies and gentlemen.
Now over to you.
Is Liz really dead or is it all some part of a bigger arrangement?
Tell us your theory.
