One of The Blacklist’s most diabolical villains is back in action.
Laverne Cox is returning to the hit NBC series on the April 2 episode two years after first making her debut in season eight, E! News can exclusively reveal. The Emmy-nominated actress is reprising her role in season 10 as sadistic interrogator Dr. Laken Perillos known for torturing her victims with unorthodox methods.
In the first look above, Raymond “Red” Reddington’s (James Spader) longtime nemesis Wujing (Chin Han) enlists Perillos’ help to take him down.
“Before I was incarcerated, I studied you and your techniques,” he flatters her in the preview. “I was an admirer.”
Wujing then makes the motivation behind finding Red known.
“Before my escape from prison I was briefly held with a mad named Marvin Gerard, Raymond Reddington’s lawyer,” he explains. “According to Marvin Gerard, Raymond Reddington has spent the past decade working in partnership with the FBI. Before his death, Mr. Gerard provided me with a list of individuals imprisoned as a result of Reddington’s unholy union with the Bureau. I was the first. Would you like to know your number?”
