“The Blacklist” Season 5 will definitely return in spite of the cancellation of its spin-off television series, “Blacklist: Redemption.” However, there will be a change happening once its hits the small screens on Oct. 4.

The new 22 episodes of the crime thriller drama will be moved on Wednesdays from its usual schedule every Thursday. Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone), Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold), and, of course, Red Reddington (James Spader) will be all back to solve the mystery surrounding Liz’s identity.

The mysterious luggage

The previous season’s finale had changed everything, especially when the relation of Red and Liz were finally revealed. Tom, too, was back with a mysterious suitcase.

However, little was known about the suitcase, but it might contain the dirty little secrets Red had. People behind the show remained tight-lipped about the luggage, although its creator Jon Bokenkamp teased something about it.

The bag has a tag with Elizabeth Keen’s name on it. Hence, fans assume that it is meant for Liz to see. If this has reached her possession, the secrets it contains might give a bigger storyline in “The Blacklist” Season 5. Tom is the one in control of the baggage. However, he may not be the one who will give it to Liz.

It looks like Tom has no idea how deep his involvement in Liz’s problems now gets.

In fact, he might not fully understand what he is into. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jon Bokenkamp revealed that he is about to face a new trouble before he finally gets to Liz. From the looks of it, his relationship with her comes with a personal struggle whether he will give the suitcase’s contents to her or not. On the other hand, there might be someone who would stop him to show her the truth.

‘Blacklist: Redemption’ cancellation

Moreover, now that NBC has canceled “Blacklist: Redemption” Season 2, Ryan Eggold is now back in “The Blacklist” Season 5 to reprise his role as Tom Keen.

Now that Tom returns, fans will have to watch and see if his story in the spin-off series will be connected to the upcoming fifth installment, along with other characters. TV Line reported that the Ryan Eggold-starrer didn’t manage to impress its audience with its eight-episode run.

It was launched to 4.3 million of viewers and only had 0.8 rating. It had replaced the crime thriller television series during its break and went neck-to-neck with “Training Day” and tied with “The Catch.” But when “The Amazing Race” returned, it had lost the 10 p.m. spot that it was eyeing.
