With ever so close to catching Tom's killer, Liz gets called to a cold case from her past that has reopened.
After the death of the detective that was helping Liz in the case, an eyewitness has come forward and identified the man who did it as Ian. It's just one step closer for Liz to bring that man to justice for Tom. But instead of bringing the witness back to D.C., she gets assigned to a cold case that asked her to help on.
Known as The Capricorn Killer, it's one of Liz cold case that she has yet to solve and dives back in thinking the killer has returned. But looking at the evidence of the sword and where it was made, given that they are messing with a copycat.
As they got close to the suspect, but escapes, Liz believes that the copycat is a former officer and gets help from Red on getting documents of retired officers. That would lead to one officer and has Liz follow him till he spotted her and taken her to a cabin in the woods where she meets with her therapist. She tells Liz how she's been trying to find a way to get her into her side of things, in a way like Reddington. But that quite ended when the FBI showed up, and she escapes with Liz following her. But Liz let her get away and in hopes that they would work together as part of her network team (like father, like daughter, right?)
In the meantime, Red tries to get to Ian to make an exchange waver, for which Ian wants Red to stop the witness to make it to D.C. Red did that as Aram transfers the man but gets ambushed and taken. Aram feels terrible and tells Liz that he's working to find him till she says him that the witness is already dead, but isn't as Red still has him in control over Ian. Mark his words that soon things will get small for him and when he figures out who Ian is, he'll strike.
Of course, with the witness gone Liz is upset and mad at what happens and when she talked to Red about it, she asked him if had anything to do with it. We all know that he did and that soon, maybe in the next episode that she'll figure out and the boiling point between them will go another high point.
This episode was another good one with it building up to where Red and Liz's relationship will go again after this episode but also even though it might be far now, but closer to Ian as well. Anyone thinking that Ian could be a long-lost brother of Raymond or Liz's mother? He must be someone that's high on the crime rate to try to take down Reddington. But that scene with Aram and Ian was not only intense but when Aram tells him to back the hell off I jumped off my seat screaming "hell yeah!" Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
