Meanwhile, Katarina is in the car driving with Agnes, Liz is handcuffed. Red tells the task force that Katarina is on the run, she is looking for answers and will employ any means possible to get inside her friend’s head to get the answers. Red thinks of Krilov, the whack job that scrambled Ressler’s brain like an egg. Krilov is the underworld’s foremost expert in accessing the subconscious, he can get anyone to talk. Red tells the task force he needs to see him now, he is in prison and Ressler says he is a lockdown, a significant security threat. Red says anything is possible. Red goes to check on Liz, tells Harold to get Krilov for him.
Two guys are outside Liz’s apartment, watching her, Katarina’s men kill them.
Ressler goes to prison to see Krilov, he is told that he speaks to nobody. Krilov recognizes Ressler.
Red knocks on Liz’s door, when there is no answer, he kicks in the door. He and Dembe go inside and find that nobody is there. Red calls Cooper, tells him the apartment is empty with clear signs of an altercation. Cooper tells Red to speak to the agents outside.
Once outside, Red doesn’t find the agents, they are gone.
Agent park goes to Liz’s building, knocks on Katarina’s door who acts concerned that something may have happened to Elizabeth.

Dembe tells Red that nobody can find Liz. Ressler has Krilov, brings him to a garage, agent Park is there as well. Red walks in with Dembe. Ressler tells Krilov if he is smart he will tell them what they want to know. Red asks Kirlov who is protégé is, he says Victor Skorvich, and he brokers jobs.
Katarina is with Liz, she says she actually came there to put an end to things; she lost her once and doesn’t want to lose her again. Liz says that she knows she is lying about Ilias and she knows the truth about Red. Liz goes on to say that Red, this Red, has watched over her, her entire life. Katarina asks what if she can prove that Red is not on her side; she is going to show her.
Katarina brings Liz into the room where Frank, aka Ilias Koslov, and tells her who he is. Liz says the file doesn’t prove anything, and if Red is not Ilias, who is he. Katarina says that is just one of the mysteries she intends to pull from Ilias’ head.
Katarina tells Liz that Ilas was her best friend until he conspired with her grandfather to have her killed, blown up in a car bomb. Dom lied to Liz, to hide the truth that he tried to assassinate his own daughter. Liz wonders why he would do that. Katarina says that if the people hunting her thought she was dead then the people he really card about would be safe. Liz can’t believe that he would care about anyone more than his child. Katarina says that he killed the man she loved instead and she vanished after, to heal. Liz says she is the reason they are looking for her again, she was looking for her, and they followed her lead.
Victor is fed up with trying to get info from Frank, he is not speaking. Katarina tells Frank Victor is done with him, but she is just getting started.

Liz asks Katarina if the bounty out to kill her can be called off, she says she is banking her life on it.
Agent Park is in the car with Red and Dembe, she narrowed down that Liz and the guy they are looking for can be in her building.

The task force and the police have Liz’s building secured, Liz tells Katarina she will get her out alive, but she needs to leave and forget about her answers. Agents storm in, in the meantime, Liz leads Katarina and her people underground.
The agents find Frank, who is nearly dead.
Underground, Bernie and Victor go one way, Katarina and Liz the other way – this way if they got caught, at least two of them will get away.
