This season just keeps getting better! TV Insider has announced that the Emmy nominated actress Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) will be guest starring in season 8 episode 10 of The Blacklist. Cox will be portraying episode 10’s Blacklister, Dr. Laken Perillos, who tortures her victims using unique and perhaps unusual methods of inflicting pain. This may mean trouble for Red and Dembe because the Townsend Directive sends Dr. Perillos their way.
Here’s the character description, according to TV Insider:
“An act of injustice in her past fuels her fascination with pain, and how racial bias can affect the ability to recognize the suffering of others.”
Make sure to catch Laverne Cox as Dr. Laken Perillos in episode 10 of The Blacklist airing March 12 at 8 p.m. EST.
The Blacklist airs Fridays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
