Secrets and lies are ripping “The Blacklist” apart, one ruined relationship at a time. Red (James Spader), Liz (Megan Boone), and Tom (Ryan Eggold) comprise an unassailable triumvirate of secrets, and their ability to layer lies over lies has, unsurprisingly, rubbed off on members of the Post Office team. Samar’s (Mozhan Marnò) Mossad past and FBI future collided in the midseason premiere, and it left one relationship in shambles.

Is there hope for Samar and Aram?

Lipet's Seafood Company” pushed Liz’s paternity issues way off the board – perhaps in preparation for an appearance on “Maury,” the only place her family drama really belongs – and thrust Samar into the spotlight.

As it turns out, the Mossad agent had secretly been splitting her time between her old agency and the FBI. Without telling her Bureau bosses, Samar logged numerous hours on a case forwarded by her old colleagues. In a Murphy’s Law maelstrom, the reveal had disastrous timing. Both Cooper and Aram (Amir Arison) were left questioning Samar’s loyalty, which did not bode well for Samaram’s first date.

Considering Aram’s last girlfriend was a mole, the techie isn’t about to dive headfirst into a relationship with someone who has shattered his trust.

“I think it’s timing, but I also think that it’s because it’s, by nature, so delicate. There’s so much to lose, and on top of that, they work together, and I think nobody really makes big, bold moves all that often,” Marnò told Yahoo TV. “I think you inch towards each other, and then you inch away, and something happens and there’s the wrong look or the wrong moment, and then it takes another month before you take another inch towards somebody again.”

Does that mean Aram and Samar’s romance is over for good? Absolutely not.

“I think she’s hopeful [for their future], but it doesn’t look good [right now],” Marnò confirmed.

As a person who always stresses consequences, Samar will undoubtedly accept whatever fallout comes her way, pick herself up, and soldier on.

Next time on ‘The Blacklist’

Expect Liz’s daddy drama to fade into the background as “The Blacklist” takes another case of the week during Jan. 12 “The Forecaster.”

“A new case arrives at Liz's (Megan Boone) doorstep, where someone has left a diorama depicting a crime soon to be committed,” NBC teased.

“Meanwhile, Red explores a new business opportunity.”
