Louis T. Steinhil” is the first episode of Season 7 of The Blacklist and the hundred and thirty-fourth overall.


Captured by Katarina Rostova in Paris, Reddington is paralyzed in a hospital room where he can be interrogated. Despite this, he refuses to sell out Katarina. He comes to realize that something is questionable about the arrangement. He finds a gun in the room and threatens a nurse with it. She admits that he is only paralyzed because of the drugs he has been injected with, and as soon as the injections stop he will recover. He forces her to help him escape.
