Who is Susan Hargrave? You’re about to find out, and Halcyon Aegis will play a VERY big role in that tale.
The Blacklist‘s Susan Hargrave is more trouble than we could have ever predicted.
The main character of The Blacklist‘s potential spinoff and this week’s Blacklister, Susan “Scottie” Hargrave (Famke Janssen) is in charge of a an agency that makes the Cabal look like puppies. Mr. Solomon (Edi Gathegi) is just one of Hargrave’s employees, and that alone paints a vivid picture of the company’s ruthless agenda.
Named Halcyon Aegis, Hargrave’s little association were behind the attack that left Liz Keen (Megan Boone) six feet under. Essentially, it’s a version of the Post Office that has the luxury of throwing the rulebook right out the window. It wouldn’t be going out on a limb to say Red (James Spader) would probably fit in quite well with Scottie’s squad, as would Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold).
“The Cabal are the people who secretly run the world,” Diego Klattenhoff (Ressler) teased. “So when you set the bar that high, you have to wonder what’s going to top that as far as what kind of shadow organization or group of people are going to be even scarier than that.”
In other words, nothing good can from Halcyon Aegis (despite their amazing name, which, as far as we can tell, evokes an image of an organization that protects the idyllic past).
Scottie popped up at the very end of “The Artax Network,” and The Blacklist will dive into her story tonight.
“When Reddington (James Spader) links an elegant, powerful and extremely dangerous woman to the recent tragic events, the task force is forced to play a deadly cat and mouse game to stop her before she strikes again,” NBC teased.
