I don't like these short seasons. The Blacklist is now gone until 2018. I knew they wouldn't kill Elizabth Keen. Even though that would improve the show immensely. Don't know if I actually believe

I'm not a fan of the short seasons either. By the time the shows come back on, I've forgotten about them lol

Read an article on 14 shows likely to be canceled. I have never heard of 13 of them. The one I do know is The Blacklist. The article says ratings are down but the series could still go on because Netflix is paying $2 million an episode to stream it and that might be enough to keep it going.

I finally wateched the season finale. And it ended just as expected. Raymond Reddington's big secret was obvious if you remember what he told Elizabeth Keen in the very first episode: "Everything about me is a lie"

The two reveals in the end were not a surprise to me at all.
Click to reveal..
First off I knew she faked her own kidnapping to fool Riddington which is revealed in the final scene in which she is talking to her dead husband. It really takes her too long to get to the secret, which is Raymond Reddington is dead and has been for decades. The man who she believed to be Raymond Reddington, her father, is an imposter. Really she shoujld have known that as he told he the first time they met that everything about him was a lie and later in the first season when she first got the notion that he was her father he said "your father is dead". If she believed him it would have saved her a lot of suffering, including the murder of her husband. She blames this man for it,m but when it comes down to it its her fault. She told her husband this man had a secret and he went to looking for it and got himself killed, not by "Reddington" but someone else who was after the secret.


The series has been renewed.

rotfl But first you would have had to remember what he said. I'm usually multitasking when watching tv, so between that and my hearing, I'm sure I'd be one of those that missed it. wavegirl

For me the only mystery centers around Keen's grandfather. Why does "Red" keeps returning to his home? Why does the grandfather who clearly doesn't like him tolerates him and why didn't he tell Elizabeth when she found him that he's her grandfather? I just hope the answer isn't a fan theory posted on the Internet Movie Database before they shut down the forums, which is that this man is not her father because he's had a sex change and is actually her mother (who faked her suicide by drowning in the ocean).

Click to reveal..
I figured from the start that Raymond "Red" Reddington was an alias. I also think that despite his constantly referring to the US as "your country" or "your government" that he's in fact some kind of US government deep cover agent who is eliminating threats to the US.



I had forgotten, in an early season a flashback shows Elizabeth Keen as a child picking up a gun and firing it. I think she unintentionally killed her father and does not remember it. That is what Red is protecting her from.

Another more rational theory (over Red being a woman who had sex change) is that Red is Elizabeth's mother's brother, in other words her uncle which is why he cares.

Another similar theory is that Red is Elizabeth's father's twin brother, again her uncle.

DVR should have recorded first episode of the new season but it didn't only got second. Was able to bring up first episode on demand. I don't care for the direction its going in. I was quite surprised that they actually let Elizabeth
Click to reveal..
realize that she was the one who killed her father, the "real" Raymond Reddington, by shooting him when she was a little girl. But then she still goes after the imposter egged on by her half sister.
I predict Elizabeth's half sister will be dead by the end of the season, if Red doesn't kill her Elizabeth will.

Anyway, I'm caught up now. Third episode Friday and DVR set to record it.

This show really keeps you guessing. There are so many possibility as to what the real relationship is between Liz and Red.

One fan theory when IMdb still had a forum and before transgenderism was a big thing. was that he is not her father because he is her mother after a sex change. Given the plastic surgeon episode I'm worried they may be going there even though it would violate series continuity since they already showed in a flash back that her mother drowned herself. A more reasonable explanation is he's her uncle, brother of either her mother or her father.

I've always thought he was a deep cover government agent. And all that "you're government" talk as if the US government wasn't his was a blind. Yes he murders people. But they are always criminals. Of course if he's her mothers brother that would make him Russian so the US government would not be his government. He could be an older brother or a cousin or no biological relationship at all.

She still doesn't know she's met her grandfather. She's not too bright to not work out that a man suspected of being a Russian agent might just be connected to her mother, the known Russian agent. I still don't know why he didn't identify himself to her. Or why he tolerates Red when its clear he despises him.

I'm also not convinced Tom is really dead. They left an opening by not showing a body. Yes the actor has a different show now, but if it fails they left a hole for him to crawl back through.

We may learn the truth about Reddington this week. If we can believe the trailer for the 2 hour special episode.

Yes its possible "Now you know the truth" could have nothing to do with the big secret. Or even if it does refer to the big secret it is always possible the character learns it without it being revealed to the viewer.

We learned a secret but not the secret. They're skipping a week, which is probably why they did two episodes. In the next episode Reddington plans a prison break.
In 1991 Elizabeth Keen's mother a KGB agent framed her father, Raymond Reddington for treason so he wouldnt't be believed when he tried to reveal that she was tied to an international crimminal organization. An audio recording of a telephone conversation proved Raymond Reddington was innocent of telling the KGB about a secret American submarine which the Russians sank, and the jury found him not guilty of treason. However the federal government has multiple charges of murder against him. We still do not know who this man is who has been impersonating Raymond Reddington or why he's doing it. Dembie discovered that Elizabeth and her half-sister paid a homeless woman $100 to phone the police about Reddington but he only told "Reddington" half the truth, that it was a homeless woman and she did not recognize Elizabetth's photo, he did not say it was Jennifer so now "Reddington" thinks he was wrong to suspect Elizabeth of betraying him, when in fact she did.

Guybrush I watched the 2 hour show and I feel like we are going in circles. The question for me is why would anyone want to change his appearance to look like someone who is wanted for treason. I have a theory but we shall see maybe in 2 weeks!

Several seasons back when the Internet Movie database still had a forum some fans put forth a theory which back then i thought was absurd not now I think its possible the writers are actually going with it. The theory is that this Raymond Reddington is in fact Katarina Rostova after a sex change operation. I hope the people in charge of this show remember they have already shown Katarina Rostova drown herself in he ocean. To have her alive and turned into Raymond Reddington would mean they lied to the audience.

My theory is Red was her real father and Liz shot him in the face. He had to have his face reconstructed and therefore his appearance has changed. Now this theory is good only if his DNA and fingerprints match the real Reddington.

My 2nd theory is that Liz shot Red and killed him when she was a child. Red was her real father but the man married to her mother changed his appearance and became the "new Red". He had raised Liz, loved her like his own daughter and probably thought she was his till that fateful night Liz shot Red. The bones may belong to the real Red.

I just watched this week's episode. Its only episode 10 of 22 this season so obviously they are not going to execute Red next week. My theory from the start of the trial was that he'd be convicted but fake his death somehow. Anyhow next week's episode is part 1 of a 2 parter.

Viewer numbers are way down from last season which actually did slightly better than the fourth season. Could this be the last season?

Remember they faked Liz's death... they could do the same for him... get him out of the prison and bring him back to life.

I waited for 2 weeks so I could watch part 1 and part 2 without a week long wait. Glad I did, part 1 ends on a cliffhanger. Which isnt completly resolved until end of the second episode.

I'm shocked.
The president of the United States, a fictional character with black hair, is a traitor. As is the Assistant Attorney General and now she is supervising the Raymond Reddington Taskforce.
The Reddington taskforce knows there is a plot against the US and who at least one of the conspirators is but not what the plot is. The audience knows only slightly more, that there are at least 3 highly placed traitors. There's a line of dark humor. The FBI agent Harold Cooper who runs the taskforce and the Assistant Attorney General who is now his supervisor do not like each other at all. When he says he's actually happy to see her take the job she thinks he being sarcastic, he says he's being truthful "because the position has a high morality rate". Every person (mostly women) to have taken on the job has managed to get themselves killed.
Not the first time a woman or the AG has been a traitor who plotted against Raymond Reddington . if he doesn't kill her one of the other conspirators will most likely.

The Blacklist has been picked up for another season, so I think this is going to drag out into the new year as a big government conspiracy. On a side note, where's Elizabeth's half sister who started this whole brouhaha, will she be making another appearance? Every episode gives us more questions than answers.

I was surprised that the half sister just walked away. I thought they were setting her up to be the villain who would try to kill Reddington and Elizabeth would end up shooting her to save him. Instead she left and the writers gave us new villains. They could always bring her back. I wasn't convinced Tom Keen was dead, since we never saw a body, until the actor actually got his own show.

Now we know Reddington isn't going to be executed the big question is will Samar survive this season? If not what will Aram do? Update: someone on youtube claims Mozhan Marnò is leaving for her own show so that is why Samar is brain damaged and probably doomed.


I didn't know it had been renewed again, thanks. for the info.

Oh next week being two hours (they just show one episode after the other) probably means no episodes the week after. That's what happened last time they did two episodes in one night.

I keep hoping that they don't cancel New Amsterdam because if they do, that will give an opening for Tom to return. LOL.
