Did Panabaker Hire Vandyke To Do The Job?

In the latest episode of The Blacklist, fans learned that Vandyke pulled the trigger and caused the death of Liz. Many now speculate that it was Panabaker who ordered the job, according to Express UK.

The publication said that netizens took their thoughts and theories to Reddit, explaining why it would make sense that Panabaker is the architect of the crime. Some pointed out that she had a “burn notice on Liz,” adding that she always wanted to “tie up loose ends” in the Task Force.

If the speculations are true, then she is reportedly likely to become the “big bad” of the existing plot.
