A Quick Recap!
The previous episode told the story of Elizabeth’s death from Ressler’s perspective. It had been two years since Liz was shot to death. Ressler took a day off to visit Elizabeth’s grave on her death anniversary.
Then, in a flashback, Ressler ran to the hospital and was right behind Liz when Vandyke shot her to death. Reddington and Dembe managed to escape the scenes. He stole a car and chased Red furiously. However, he lost control due to his unstable condition and ran into another car. He and the second driver were then taken to the hospital, and both of them recovered. The doctor advised Ressler to take oxycodone to keep his head stable.
Moreover, in The Blacklist Season 9 Episode 7, Cooper told him to move forward and start fresh. But, Ressler was so depressed that he resigned from his job and moved to Liberty Falls. He stayed in a motel and became friends with the receptionist, Lauren, and her son, Theodore. He ran out of oxycodone and tried to get some at the bar. Unfortunately, a group of bandits at the bar robbed him. So, he had to use his skills as an auto mechanic to pay the motel bills. Ressler tried to start a new life and helped Lauren & Theodore to fight her abusive ex-husband.
Back to reality, Ressler shaved his beard, bought Liz’s favorite carnations, and took a trip to the cemetery. He went to the spot where Tom and Liz were buried.
