“The Blacklist” Season 2 Episode 14 “No. 93: The Deer Hunter” aired last Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 at 10:00 PM on NBC. In this episode, FBI Special Agent Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone) felt conflicted as she and the Task Force investigated a serial killer, after Detective Martin Wilcox (Michael Kostroff) informed her that he had found the body of DC Harbormaster Eugene Ames, and had found a witness that placed her at the crime scene at the time. Meanwhile, Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) took care of things for Liz and tried to locate the person who he had been conversing with. In the end, Liz decided to share a big secret with Red. Read on to learn more about this episode.

FBI Special Agent Elizabeth “Liz” Keen (Megan Boone) gave a graduate seminar lecture on the nature of the serial killer that they had been hunting known as “The Deer Hunter”. According to her, the killer was a small man, and that he took a ritualistic bite out of his victim’s livers each time. Meanwhile, Detective Martin Wilcox (Michael Kostroff) made sure that Samuel Aleko (Dante Nero) would still say the same story the next day during his official interview; and Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) received a phone call from the unidentified man that he had contacted, who told him that something was happening at the moment, and to wait for his call the next day at a pay phone at 2:00 PM the next day. Afterwards, Red told Liz that he would help her with her case if she talked to him about the Fulcrum.

At the Task Force Headquarters, he told them that they were looking for a woman, and not a man. Afterwards, Liz and FBI Special Agent Donald Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) went to the morgue for the medical examiner’s report, and arrested Chuck Krusse (Mark Gessner) a journalist. He then told them that they were looking for a copy-cat. Meanwhile, in Silver Springs, Tracy Solobotkin (Amanda Plummer) told her pets that she was going to take care of a man named Chad Henning, whose wife, Mary, had asked for help.

Afterwards, Wilcox called Liz and told her that she couldn’t hide anymore from the truth, which worried her, even if Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) was the one who had killed the harbor master. Red then met up with Officer Edgar, and old friend of his, who told him that Aleko was going to be transferred the next day at around 2:00 PM in the afternoon.

Back at the task force, Liz told Ressler about what she was worried about, but that gave him an idea to prove that they were currently looking for a copy – cat. They were then able to prove it as the forensic reports that Aram Mojtabai (Amir Arison) pulled up showed that the bite marks in each set were different.

The next day, at Silver Springs, Chad Henning was found dead, hanging from a tree. Because of this, Ressler and Liz went to Mary, and Liz rattled Mary enough as she noticed that Mary was covering for someone. She then told him that she realized that the copy- cat was using The Deer Hunter’s methods for their own purposes.

Meanwhile, Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) answered the payphone at 2:00 PM, but the man only wanted to talk to Red. Red, in the meantime, managed to get into Aleko’s transfer vehicle, and told him to keep quiet about Liz in exchange for a new heart transplant for his brother. Because of this, Aleko changed his story, and Liz wasn’t brought in.

Meanwhile, Aram realized that all of the male victims had been violent towards women, and that their partners or spouses had sought help from groups connected to White Haven Shelters, which meant that killer had wanted to seek justice for these women. There, they asked for a list of employees and volunteers, and passed by Tracy, who worked there, who became paranoid. Afterwards, the pair left for Mary’s house, as she called them up. After they left, Red had Aram trace the source of his anonymous caller.

At Mary’s house, Tracy came over, and knocked out Mary with a chopping board after she saw Liz and Ressler coming to them. Later,Tracy knocked out Liz, bound her up and hung her from her garage ceiling.

Back at the task force, Agent Samar Navabi (Mozhan Marno) and Aram discovered that Tracy, whose husband was the first victim, was the link, as she worked for White Haven as an accountant.

Meanwhile, Tracy told Liz that she had killed her husband, the original Deer Killer, and had decided to become him to help others. However, Liz mocked her and told her that she was just like her husband, and proceeded to strangle her with her feet, after Tracy lunged at her, and was stopped by Ressler. Later, he told her not to turn herself in because if she did, many would suffer if the Task Force was shut down.

Aram then managed to get the address of Red’s caller, but when they went there, he had gone, and had left his phone.

Afterwards, Liz went to Wilcox’s precinct, but didn’t turn herself in. She then met up with Red who told her that he had saved her from being arrested. Liz then told him that she had the Fulcrum, but refused to give it until he told her more about it, even if he said that he had told her everything. He then told her that she didn’t want to let go of it because she was scared that they wouldn’t see each other again.

And that was all for the recap of “The Blacklist” Season 2 Episode 14 “No. 93: The Deer Hunter”. For more news, updates and recaps on “The Blacklist” and other television shows, keep on following Movie News Guide (MNG).
