The season six finale is titled “Robert Diaz.” The synopsis for tonight’s episode reads, “As the president’s true plan comes into focus, Liz and the task force fight to avert disaster; Red meets in secret with a man who holds information about his past.” The Blacklist creator Jon Bokenkamp talked to TV Guide about the finale, and how it will provide closure for the fans.
“I think what we have coming up in tonight’s episode is the resolution to a season-long conspiracy,” he said. “This all started with our first episode of the season, with a bombing at the U.N. and a cover-up, and it has led us to this episode, where we are presented with the question of ‘why would the president of the United States be part of and support a plot to assassinate the president of the United States?’ So we’ve got great stakes. It’s a big episode, it’s a lot of fun, and I think it ultimately has a really surprising and satisfying answer.”
Executive producer John Eisendrath also said that the finale would set up the next season. “While it has a surprising and satisfying answer to that story, it also, I think, has a surprising and very open-ended answer — or it offers two surprising and very open-ended questions in the personal lives of our characters,” he explained. “So I think the episode both closes off the story of the president and the assassination attempt, and opens up stories about our characters going into Season 7.”
