“The Blacklist” is quickly becoming the most talked about new fall show. NBC has already ordered that the entire season run, which is a great sign for more seasons to come. The mystery behind the two main characters is fueling a lot of conversation among fans. Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) is almost sure there is a connection with Red Reddington (James Spader), but what is it? According to a November 4 report by Extra, James Spader believes that there is more than a clear cut answer to how the two characters are connected, complete with plenty of twists and turns.
In Season 1, Episode 7 fans watched as Red blew up the house he raised his family in. There was a vision of a little girl playing in the yard, which many fans assumed could have been Lizzie. In the previews for Episode 8, fans were shown Red sitting inside what looked like a hospital room with a man that Lizzie was calling her dad. The men exchanged a suspicious conversation, and the preview went off. All of this would lead one to believe that Red is indeed Elizabeth’s father.
Fans new and old have been sucked into the mystery surrounding “The Blacklist.” It looks like the underlying question will always revolve around the connection Elizabeth Keen and Red Reddington share.
