Wanted fugitive Raymond "Red" Reddington (Spader) turns himself in to the FBI and offers to help them find Ranko Zamani (Jamie Jackson), a terrorist, on the condition he talks only to new profiler Elizabeth Keen (Boone). After being informed that Zamani intends to kidnap the daughter of General Daniel Ryker (Chance Kelly), Elizabeth picks her up, only for her convoy to be ambushed and the girl taken. Furthermore, Zamani breaks into Elizabeth's house and stabs her husband Tom (Eggold). As Tom recovers, Zamani meets with Red and informs him of Tom's injury, which Red apparently ordered. The meeting turns out to be a setup, and Agent Donald Ressler (Klattenhoff) kills Zamani. Elizabeth realises that Zamani intends to detonate a chemical bomb strapped to Ryker's daughter. Elizabeth finds the girl in a zoo, and Red sends an associate to disarm the device. Red then reveals that he has intelligence to help the FBI find unknown threats he has compiled on a "blacklist" gathered over the years. Later, as Elizabeth cleans her husband's blood off the carpet, she finds stashed under the floorboards a box containing money, a gun, and several fake passports bearing Tom's photograph. Red phones her and inquires about this discovery, which leaves her puzzled.
