I love the show The Blacklist. It reminds me of Silence of the Lambs. Last season I didn’t agree with the what was in the suitcase. I thought it was the bones of Liz’s mother. But no, it’s the real Red’s bones. I do have to admit that it kinda makes sense. Red did tell Liz that her father is dead and she shot him. But Tom had told her that her father is alive. I wonder if Red told the lie to Tom so he wouldn’t find out who he really is.
This season premiere Liz teams up with her half-sister to find out who this Red is. Liz is playing along with Red being a good daughter. The only thing that is driving me crazy is that every time Liz talks to Red she sounds so fake. Red has to see how fake it is. I do think this Red probably took the real Red’s name so he could get a hold of that info that Liz had her teddy bear which this Red had released many seasons ago.
I love the tv show The Blacklist. It reminds me of The Silence of the Lambs. This season’s finale was a real shocker to me. And I’m little confused.
All this season was about the black duffel bag filled with bones. Kaplan wanted Liz to know whose bones they were. The search was on for that duffel bag. (I thought the secret was that the bones were of Liz’s mother and Red was protecting Liz. I was hoping they would eventually tell whose bones they were.) Another big surprise was that Liz has a “half-sister” (quotation marks because of the finale.) Liz did have justice for Tom’s killer (who was a crooked cop) at least.
The season finale revealed the bones were of the real Red. Liz’s real father. I think the writer’s memories have disappeared. Because in the episode when Liz shot that senator (many seasons ago), she tells Red she remembers how a gun feels in her hands. He tells her that she shot her father when she was little. She told Tom that Red told her that her father is dead. Tom was trying to her that her father is alive. The writers haven’t brought up the topic again since. So that being said, the bones must have been her father she had shot. But why take his name? And how does he know her grandfather?
I hope next season they will have more answers.
Over the weekend, I watched the season finale of The Blacklist. I love the show because it reminds me of Silence of the Lambs. To the writers, thank you, but you left more questions at the end.
Last season finale, Red’s cleaner was shot in the head and left for dead by Red himself. He was mad that she helped Liz escape. His cleaner ends surviving and is nursed back to health by a guy. This season Kaplan gets her revenge on Red by getting the FBI involved and turning his associates. In the end, Kaplan kills herself which is sad. And there is no hinting around. Yay!! Liz finally finds out that Red is her father!!
But my question is did Liz’s mother drown? I mean a few past episodes it was said she drowned. But it looks like maybe Liz maybe shot her mother by accident the night of the house fire and Red covered it up by starting the house fire.
I can’t wait for next season.
