Every Infamous Blacklister Who Returns on The Blacklist Season 10

We'll be seeing a lot of familiar faces of criminal's past.

Seeing Red | NBC's The Blacklist

Following the action-packed premiere of The Blacklist's 10th and final season, we now know that Raymond Reddington (James Spader) and his Task Force have a whole lot of trouble ahead of them. 

“After 10 years, hundreds of Blacklist cases and more than 200 episodes produced, we’re honored to reach our conclusion,” said showrunner and executive producer John Eisendrath in a February statement. “It’s been incredibly fun to create the strange, devious, and delightful Blacklisters to challenge Raymond Reddington and our FBI Task Force each week. We would like to thank everyone at NBC and Sony, our extraordinary crew who make the impossible happen every day, our endlessly inventive writers and producers, and our remarkable cast who brought life to these characters. We appreciate our dedicated fanbase who came along for this wonderful ride and are excited to share this final season with them.” 

As we saw in Season 9, it turns out that thanks to Marvin Gerard (who was responsible for Liz’s death), an unknown amount of infamous Blacklisters will soon learn Red's secret: He's been working with the FBI for years to systematically take them all down in exchange for his freedom. Armed with this incendiary information, it seems that many will be after him to not only expose this truth, but to see him dead. This also means that throughout the season, we'll likely see various criminals from the past that we thought were long gone. Some even date back to Season 1. 

To keep track of them all, we'll go episode by episode to catalogue all of the familiar faces who pop up during Season 10.

Episode 1, "The Night Owl"


Wujing on The Blacklist

The master hacker first appeared in Season 1, Episode 3's "Wujing" and appeared again at the end of Season 9. This is when Marvin told him everything about Red's list of Blacklisters and role on the FBI's special Task Force. Now, Wujing is hellbent on exacting revenge on Red and his gathering up a team of wronged criminals to do it.

The Freelancer

The Freelancer on The Blacklist

His first episode of the series was Season 1, Episode 2's "The Freelancer." The assassin reappears in the Season 10 premiere when Wujing orchestrates his escape from custody in order to recruit him to help take down Red.

Episode 3, "The Four Guns"

Robert Vesco

Reddington's former mentor, Robert Vesco, made a return in "The Four Guns" after Red decided to break him out of prison (he was arrested in The Blacklist Season 9). He does this by poisoning Vesco with an arsenic-laced novel delivered to his cell, later grabbing him from the hospital after his health takes a turn. It was a risky operation, but Vesco was ultimately happy to reunite with his protege, even if he almost died in the process.

The Blacklist will air Sundays at 10/9c on NBC and later stream on Peacock.
