The Blacklist’s most heinous antagonist is back in action. Two years after making her NBC debut in season eight, Laverne Cox will return to the show on the April 2 episode, E! News can exclusively confirm. Season 10 will see the Emmy-nominated actress return to her role as the ruthless interrogator Dr. Laken Perillos. She is notorious for torturing her inmates using unusual methods.
In the first picture, Perillos helps Wujing, a longtime enemy of Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), get eliminated. In the sneak peek, he compliments her by saying, “Before I was detained, I studied you and your ways.” “I used to be a fan.” Wujing continues by outlining the justification for finding Red.
“Before my prison break, I was held in solitary confinement with Raymond Reddington’s lawyer, a lunatic named Marvin Gerard. Raymond Reddington allegedly has been working with the FBI for the past ten years, according to Marvin Gerard. Before Reddington died, Mr. Gerard provided me a list of those who had been imprisoned as a result of his sinister relationship with the Bureau. It all began with me.
In order to identify Red’s closest buddy, Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq), for Wujing, it appears that Dr. Perillos will try using her tactics on him now that she has her own target on her back. In one picture, Dr. Dembe is unconscious and hooked up to numerous medical devices, but Dr. Perillos has an evil grin on his face. Dr. Perillos and Wujing encounter fugitive conman Robert Vesco (Stacy Keach) while searching for the FBI informant. Robert Vesco has duped Red in earlier seasons. The final season of The Blacklist airs on NBC every Sunday at 10 p.m.
