Episodes without Blacklister Numbers (Chronological)

# – [Episode 6:19] 📗 Rassvet – Unnumbered; A tale told by Dom to Liz about Red and Katarina’s backstory; “The death and birth of Raymond Reddington” ~ Entertainment Weekly
# – [Episode 4:17] Requiem – Unnumbered; Mr Kaplan’s (Katherine Nemec’s) backstory with insights into Katarina Rostova’s life as an intelligence operative and her relationship with a young Raymond Reddington
# – [Episode 5:9] Ruin – Unnumbered; Liz retreats to Alaska to find herself after Tom’s death, but finds she can’t escape trouble.
# – [Episode 7:4] 📙 Kuwait – Unnumbered; Cooper is confronted by a Naval Intelligence lieutenant he left for dead after an ambush in 1989. See Daniel Hutton (“The Samoon”) under Unnumbered Bad Guys.
# – [Episode 7:17] 📙 Brothers – Unnumbered; In this background episode, Ressler reunites with his brother Robby to move the corpse of the dirty cop who killed their father. As a teenager, Ressler overheard the cop, Tommy Markin, admit to the crime, tracked him down and shot him. Robby later finished him off and buried him. Liz helped out by “disappearing” the body from the trunk of their car just before suspicious agents checked it out.
# – [Episode 8:3] 📓16 Ounces – Unnumbered. The “16 ounces” is the amount of the plastic explosive Semtex that Liz obtained illicitly by forging Aram’s signature on a requisition form. She tried twice to blow him up with it as revenge for killing her mother, Katarina Rostova (Blacklister #3) in Episode 8:2, the second time with help from Esi Jackson (see Unnumbered). To save her from herself (and himself from her) Red offered Cooper a proposal: “putting Elizabeth Keen at the top of the Blacklist.”
# – [Episode 8:13] 📓 Anne – Unnumbered. Anne is Anne Foster, an attractive, recently widowed 52-year old Black woman who Red met in a park in New York City. She is an avid theater fan and birdwatcher. Despite Dembe’s concerns, the relationship has grown into a full-blown love affair, although Anne knew little about Red – until this episode. Red’s life explodes suddenly into Anne’s when Neville Townsend (who has aligned with Liz) and his mercenaries show up in Anne’s quiet home town. Red and Anne take refuge in the police station where Anne’s best friend is an officer. Despite most of the police force being killed, Red and Anne escape – until Liz shows up at Anne’s house and captures her. At the end of 8:14, she fought with Liz who threatened Red with a gun. Liz pushed her and Anne fell, cracking her head hard against a table. Anne’s survival appears unlikely.
# – [Episode 8:14] 📓 Misère – Unnumbered. Aka Misere. (Misère is a card play in which you win by losing); This episode shows Liz’s point of view during the recent episodes in which she has not appeared. It focuses on ‘how low she will go’ in seeking revenge on Red for killing her mother, Katarina Rostova (Blacklister #3) [in Episode 8:2 Katarina Rostova, Part 2]. She has two coaches: 1) Her collaborator Neville Townsend, the man who put a bounty on Katarina’s head thinking she (and not Red) was the mysterious operative N-13 responsible for the death of his family. And 2) an Apparition of Mr Kate Kaplan who often appears at her side. Kaplan’s appearances suggest Liz is going insane. Both Townsend and Kaplan counsel Liz to be utterly ruthless, but she cannot be. She cannot shoot Red in the final scene; but she fought and pushed Red’s lover Anne when Anne tried to knock Liz’s gun away, resulting in Anne falling and hitting her head on a table. Anne’s survival appears unlikely.
# – [Episode 8:15] 📓 The Russian Knot – Unnumbered; The Russian Knot is an encryption/decryption machine dating back to the Soviet Union. Knowing (or fearing) that Liz would find evidence among her mother’s things that he was using the machine to talk to sources in Russia, Red convinced Cooper to use the team to retrieve the surviving device from a museum in Minsk. The FBI Team got there at the same time as Liz and crew. Liz would have had to shoot Ressler to get the cipher machine, which she couldn’t bring herself to do, so the FBI got it. Red had convinced Cooper that Liz was using the machine to talk to Townsend. In truth, she wanted it to prove he was N-13. She and Ressler use the machine to decipher a message that proves Red is playing Cooper. But Cooper has let Red take the machine, leaving Liz and Ressler with no way to prove to him they are right.

 
Episodes with Blacklister Numbers
# 1. [Episode 8:4] 📓 Elizabeth Keen – aka Allison Thomas, Caroline Givens etc (escaped for now with daughter Agnes). Red placed Liz at the top of The Blacklist after she tried to blow him up with 16 ounces of Semtex because he shot and killed her mother, Katarina Rostova, Blacklister #3 [Episode 8:2 Katarina Rostova, Pt 2]. He said he is putting Liz on The Blacklist to ‘keep her from doing something that she can never recover from.’ Among those things would be to reveal his identity as N-13, a mysterious agent thought to be in possession of a blackmail file called the Sikorsky Archive. She learned his identity as N-13 from the recording Katarina made of her last conversation with Red which Katarina left as a message on Liz’s phone. Liz wastes no time sharing this information trying to get Red’s associates to flip to help her. Red is promptly summoned to Moscow to meet with his “Friend in the East” [ Identified in Episode 8:16 as Ivan Stepanov ] himself. Red insists that his identity as N-13 is “an allegation that no one believes.” Stepanov corrects him, saying it is “a fact no one knows is true. Red insists that “Elizabeth Keen is off limits.” Stepanov says he agrees – “for now.” (tbc …)
# 3. [Episode 7:10, Episode 8:2] 📙📓 Katarina Rostova, Parts 1 and 2 – (alive); aka Maddy Tolliver, Constance Drucker; Liz’s mother. Despite rumors that she was dead, she appeared alive in Episode 6:22; in Episode 7:10, Liz learns that Katarina is alive and is the woman (Maddy) who moved next door to her, became her friend and became Agnes’s nanny. Based on information seized from Orion Relocation Services [Episode 7:9 (Blacklister #159)], Liz confronted her mother, but then found her story to be compelling: that Katarina’s father Dom Wilkinson had tried to kill her in 1991 and that she, like Liz, is searching for Red’s true identity. Katarina faked her assassination at the end of the episode, fooling Red, but letting Liz know she is very much alive. In Episode 8:1 [Roanoke] Katarina told Liz that a bounty had been placed on her head by the Townsend Organization (the “Townsend Directive”) because they thought she was N-13, a mysterious operative in possession of a blackmail file known as the Sikorsky Archive, but she believed N-13 was Red or Dom or both. To get answers, Liz abducts Dom from under Red’s care and they subjects to intense interrogation. (He had recently emerged from a coma after being shot in the chest by one of Katarina’s men.) Liz bails when the interrogation gets too rough but Katarina proceeds and, in a hallucinatory state, Dom tells Katarina that Red is N-13. He says she (Katarina) took the Sikorsky Archive “but he has it.” She arranges to tell William Heidegger, the head of the Townsend Organization in the Western Hemisphere, that Red is N-13, but Red intervenes and shoots her in a park, which Liz witnesses.

Red describes him as ‘one of my oldest and closest friends.’ Stepanov was captured by Neville Townsend at the end of Episode 8:16 Nicholas Obenrader (Blacklister #133) based on information he obtained by tapping Ressler’s phone calls with Liz. Townsend used torture and an SVR-developed “truth serum” to pry information from Stepanov about Red and Liz and the murder of his family, which Townsend was forced to witness. Townsend now intends to force Red to witness as he murders Elizabeth. But he’ll have to find her first, as she and her operation have gone to ground.

In [Episode 8:4 Elizabeth Keen], he beckoned Red for two reasons: To thank him for deleting incriminating files of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence fingering associate Rakitin. Red’s payment is on a thumb drive of information taken from “the Archive.” He also gives Red a scarcely veiled warning that Liz’s lack of discretion about the identity of N-13 (Red) may mean she may not forever remain “off limits.” In Episode 8:5, Liz hires The Fribourg Confidence (Blacklister #140) to steal the thumb drive from Red’s safe deposit box and delivers it anonymously to Cooper who assigns Aram to access it. In Episode 8:7 Chemical Mary (Blacklister #143), Aram tells Cooper the security is biometric and Cooper uses a fingerprint of Red’s to open the files. At the same time, Red is in Moscow, reporting the theft to “Our friend.” Red doesn’t know Cooper has the files, but “Our friend” warns him that if Cooper gains access to “the Rakitin files,” he must be “eliminated.” Red replies, “I understand.” In Episode 8:11 Captain Kidd (Blacklister #96), after hearing from Rakitin that Red has been unwilling or unable to keep Cooper from prying into their intelligence gathering, “Our friend” gives Rakitin instructions to “eliminate” Cooper. In Episode 12 Rakitin (Blacklister #28), Red interfered with his Eastern Friend’s order to Rakitin to “eliminate” Cooper. Instead Red eliminated Rakitin, and then confronted his Friend to upbraid him for going around him. Red made clear that their “end game” is his end game. It also became clear that this “Eastern Friend” works for or has at his disposal, the Russian SVR (foreign intelligence service).
   In Episode 8:16 Nicholas Obenrader (Blacklister #133), Red’s “Friend in the East” is identified from video surveillance of a café in Paris. The location came from messages Katarina left in a storage locker that were found by Liz. The FBI used the Russian Knot to decrypt them.

The FBI followed soon after and arrested Obenrader.
999 📓 Neville Townsend – (alive, working with Liz); Townsend, who is manic-depressive and an insomniac, had years earlier placed a bounty (“The Townsend Directive”) on the head of Liz’s mother, Katarina Rostova. He blamed her for the death of his family, and also of being the notorious agent N-13. Townsend was fooled when Katarina had the Kazanjian Brothers stage her death. They claimed the ransom which they shared with Katarina. Liz kidnapped Townsend’s sister, Mary Bremmer (Chemical Mary, Blacklister #143) in Episode 8:7 in order to make contact with him. Liz (through her Cyranoid, Blacklister #35) offered to partner with Townsend to take down Red, the real N-13. But, Townsend required Liz to prove her sincerity – by having her carry out the murder his sister, which Liz compelled her Cyranoid to do [Episode 8:9]. In Episode 8:10 Dr Laken Perillos (Blacklister #70), Townsend has Dr Perillos torture both Dembe and Red, trying to find out who has the Sikorsky Archive.

He announced plans to kill Liz while Red watched so Red could know what he felt like when his (Townsend’s) family was killed. In Episode 8:18 Townsend hired The Protean (Blacklister #36), to capture Liz and kill anyone who got in the way (this included: Esi Jackson, Skip Hadley, Jax and Liz’s half sister Jennifer aka Lillian Roth). In Episode 8:20 He agreed to a deal with Liz in which he would limit his revenge killing to Red alone in exchange for her turning Red over to him, which she tried to do via a tracking chip, but Red spirited Liz off the Latvia in his plane.

⭕ Liz’s Father

 
Each season so far has ended with a major “revelation” about the identity of Elizabeth Keen’s father. Did the revelation at the end of Season 5! finally settle this question? Or is the truth still out there – weirder yet and perhaps utterly unforgivable?

 
999 Liz’s father – The central mystery of the series: Is Red Liz’s father? Major relevant scenes:

In 1:22, Red tells Liz he is not her father and that “Your father is dead. He died in that fire.” In the last scene of that episode, Red is shown to have severe burn scars on his back.

In 2:10, during a memory recovery session performed by Dr Selma Orchard, Liz sees her father “dying on the floor of a burning house.” She says to Red “You were there” (which he affirms). Could he be both or were they the same? Dr Orchard later tells Liz she believes Liz’s memories had previously been altered.

In 2:22, in a flashback or false memory, Liz sees herself shooting her father when she was a young child when he is fighting with her mother.

In 3:23, Alexander Kirk (formerly Constantine Rostov, to whom Liz’s mother, Katarina Rostova, was married) tells Liz he is her father. DNA testing later shows this to be false, though Kirk claims Red had altered the test results.

In 4:17, Kate Kaplan recalls Liz’s mother saying that “Raymond” had abducted Liz (Masha) because “He thinks she’s his.” Katarina tells Kate she herself doesn’t know who Liz’s father is.

In 4:19, memory manipulator Dr Bogdan Krilov tells Liz he manipulated her memories just two years earlier. Liz confronts Red over this but he evades a direct answer.

In 4:22, Cooper runs a DNA comparison for Liz ID’ing Raymond Reddington as her father (based, however, on 25 year old DNA sample from a bloody shirt). Further doubt remains as Dembe asked Red “You didn’t deny it?” as though there might be a reason to deny it, or at least that it may be beside the point.

In 5:22, another huge paternity reveal as the skeleton Mr Kaplan left for Liz in [4:22] – which was purloined by Tom, leading to his murder by Ian Garvey in [5:8] – is revealed to Liz by Sutton Ross to be the skeleton of Raymond Reddington. Red gets the skeleton and burns it but doesn’t know what Liz learned. She vows to “destroy” Red. Still, why would Cooper use an old blood sample from a messy torture scene instead of using “our” Red’s DNA. Could Red be Liz’s father after all?

Related:
999 Who were the 3-5 men leaving the burning house? – Were they bad guys or good guys? Why would they leave Liz and the man on the floor behind?
999 Who killed Red’s family? – if someone did. Diane Fowler seemed to validate the tale of “Bloody Christmas Eve” Red told to Madeline Pratt.

Fowler: I know the truth, Red, about that night – about what happened to your family. Do you want to know the truth?
Red: More than anything in the world. But if you know the truth, Diane, then somebody else does, too. [ 💥💥💥💥 ]

BuildSeriesNYC: James Spader Stops By To Discuss “The Blacklist” (video) http://aol.it/2ys1Lf3 39mins
// 9/26/2017, James Spader interview

James Spader: [Re: Father question:] “Don’t get too comfortable” & “Why would they reveal anything in the 4th season?”

 
Note: (3/22/2018) I’ve tried to avoid projecting where the plot is going, but JB’s and JE’s saying there will be a huge cliffhanger at the end of S5 is keeping me up at night. It most likely has to do with the skeleton. The obvious thing would be that it’s Katarina, but wouldn’t that be too obvious? My wild guess is that it’s Raymond Reddington; Liz is the daughter of KR and RR but Red killed them both in retaliation for one or both of them killing his family on “that night” that Diane Fowler referred to, which may be the same as the tale of “Bloody Christmas” Red told to Madeline Pratt. Maybe Ian Garvey was one of the men involved in the investigation of that multiple homicide or maybe one of the guys in the house the night of the fire. Red has never himself said to Liz or anyone else that she is his daughter. Cooper got RR’s blood for DNA analysis from an old shirt from evidence, not from our Red. What explains Red’s attachment to Liz? I don’t know, but maybe a hint is his monologue at the end of the “Tom Keen” episode, when he talks about becoming a benefactor, as Liz has become for the Harbormaster’s daughter. Plus, he may have transferred feelings he had for his own daughter to her. Kind of “weak tea,” I know, but it could set up a whole new ballgame for a Season 6 ~ with Liz turning on Red to avenge her parent(s) murder. Or maybe the skeleton is just Katarina’s, per the “K” on the tree and because Mr Kaplan said “Sorry, Katarina” when she dug up the suitcase.
⋙ Much of this ⇈ confirmed in S5 Finale on 5/16/2018.

 
Note: (2/26/2019) Episode 6:9 Minister D just aired. Red was just acquitted in his trial for treason. This “Red” (our Red) is believed to be an imposter, not the real Raymond Reddington by those in the know: Liz, Lilly/Jennifer and now Ressler. The searing question is why would anyone voluntarily take on the identity of a pariah like Reddington? We know Katarina inexplicably arranged the plastic surgery. We also know Liz shot her father when she was three or four. So: maybe Katarina found someone to change into a look-alike for Liz’s sake, to possibly save her from the knowledge she had killed her father. Who might this person be? One possibility (among many) would be Minister D’s lover, Zachary Tempkin, believed to be dead in the explosion that severely scarred Minister D. Perhaps he was literally a “man without a face,” somehow indebted to Katarina, perhaps by finding him in the aftermath of the explosion she caused when Minister D tried to blackmail her. Just one wacky theory among so many!
♡ ૂི•̮͡• ྀ ♡

 
Note: (11/19/2019) In Episode 7:7 Hannah Hayes, Katarina tracks down Ilya Koslov, who apparently is Red’s childhood friend Frank Bloom and not Red. So the tale Dom told to Liz – that Ilya Koslov assumed the identity of Raymond Reddington and is in fact “our” Red appears to be a fabrication. So then who is Red? My guess at the moment is that Raymond Reddington is alive. The burn scars on Red’s back have never been explained. My guess is Red is, indeed, Raymond Reddington. I’ll go further. Red is Liz’s father.

 
📓 Note: (2/27/2021 In Episode 8:7 [Chemical Mary, Blacklister #143], in a conversation with Dembe (with no one else present), this conversation takes place:

Dembe: I think you understand Elizabeth. Probably more than you want to.
Red: Well, I’m not her father. Maybe if I were, I’d want to understand her even better. Perhaps she wouldn’t be so determined to kill me.

So, that seems to settle it. I’ve seen nothing lately to suggest there is a potential romantic interest on either side, though the writers have another season coming up. The pressing question remains: If Red is not Liz’s father and there’s no romantic interest, what possible explanation is there for Red’s continued obsession with her? Guilt, maybe?

 
📓 Note: (5/16/2021) After Episode 8:17 Ivan Stepanov, (Blacklister #133].
I thought this question was laid to rest (above note from 2/27/2021) when Red said to Dembe that he was not Liz’s father because I assumed Dembe knew everything. But Episode 8:17 Ivan Stepanov (Blacklister #5) opened this can of worms again. Perhaps Dembe doesn’t know the entire truth, but Ivan Stepanov does. We learn from Red that Ivan is one of Red’s oldest and closest friends. Liz says Ivan was her grandfather Dom’s protégé and Red credits him for making him the person he is. Red, Katarina and Ivan were all friends; Ivan was a few years older. I believe these relationships pre-dated Red’s relationship with Dembe. What makes this matter is that, under torture and the influence of an SVR-developed “truth serum,” Ivan whispered something to Townsend that left him determined (as Red predicted he would be) to kill Liz. But now, he explicitly wants to do this so Red will experience was he had felt when his family was killed, for which he blames Red. Townsend’s exact words as Red and Liz are locked together in a cooler:

Townsend: Elizabeth? You in there? I do hope you’re in there, Elizabeth, because I’m gonna need you for this next part, which promises to be rather awful. While you have a moment, I suggest that you and Raymond reflect upon the concept of loss. I know it well. I feel it in every breath I take, every moment that – [ Chuckles ] – that I sleep. Loss became a part of me when I watched my wife and children die before my very eyes! But today, Raymond, I’m gonna give you that burden! I’m gonna show you loss! Today, I’m going to kill Elizabeth while you watch. [Emphasis added]
