This is where I post my thoughts and reblog stuff from other sites I find interesting or topical, mostly topics from Twitter, Tumblr and blogs. Mostly discussion in Scribblings in the past has tended to be about the story, characters, their relationships, the timeline plus various controversies in the fandom. โ€“ Lightly edited. Reverse chronological.

๐Ÿ”ด Take-Aways from Daniel Knauf’s Tweets

Feb 12, 2015

Daniel Knauf is a Co-Executive Producer and senior writer for The Blacklist. He answers questions about the show during and after it and is quite comfortable with Twitter. I don’t know a better way to re-capture Twitter (but I’ll try screenshots next time).

Below are his Tweets from 2:10 Luther Braxton-2. To find the original full interaction, do a search on Twitter using his handle @Daniel_Knauf followed by keywords from the Tweets below. A number of the early Tweets are comments on the episode action. You can see Knauf’s comic book work at play.
Here are my takeaways:

๐Ÿ”ด What was Red’s “3rd option” for Tom?

I’m with those who think Tom didn’t work with Red prior to his being shot by Lizzy. Red was going to finish him off himself at that point. I never thought it was plausible that Ezra never picked up Liz’s nightly excursions. Red knew something was up with Tom but wanted Lizzy to confide in him.

๐Ÿ”ด 2:8 Decembrist: Red, The Stewmaker & Redemption

@Belle My take on the return of the Stewmaker: Fitch had the Stewmaker send the picture to Red to make him let him know that someone (turns out, Berlin) would be coming after him for the supposed death of “the girl” (Zoรซ). It may have been that threat that prompted Red to leave Liz with Sam to protect her and to flee because he “believed his life was in danger.”

2:8 Decembrist: State Capitalism & the Internet (11/25/2014)

I rewrote this idea & submitted it to The Blacklist Exposed:
http://www.goldenspiralmedia.com/feedback
They are soliciting ideas on where The Blacklist should go. You may have read an earlier version (detail is at the links). I saw the “spoiler” link โ€“ it just says they are looking for someone to play one of the alliance guys Fitch mentioned before he exploded. So, this is a bit of a promo, I guess.

2:8 Decembrist: Stories, Dreams & Spoilers (11/24/2014)

@A.M. @Belle The long post I did on “what happened Red’s family?” (Nov 23 at 3:00 am!) also reached the conclusion that the year of “Bloody Christmas” may have been earlier, perhaps 1987 when Liz was four. I also speculated that Naomi might have had something to do with it and that the memory of “Bloody Christmas” may been why Red didn’t show up in 1990. Remember when he told Madeline Pratt that it was “the reason I haven’t shown up a lot of places over the years.” I’m glad we’re independently reaching the the same general idea. It still doesn’t synch with the age of the little ballet dancer. Who she is remains a mystery. Military academy attendees are not allowed to be married or have dependents. But the writers may not have known that.

๐Ÿ”ด What Happened to Redโ€™s Family?

ย 
http://bit.ly/2FiKAzC

What happened to Red’s family? Here’s what I know.

โ‹™ Diane Fowler: I know the truth, Red, about that night โ€“ 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. [shoots her several times] http://bit.ly/1HzBdsu

 
The biggest overarching question in the story is what tragedy happened to Red’s family, and also, importantly, who that ‘family’ was. It can’t be Naomi & Jennifer โ€“ they’re alive. Did Red marry Naomi later? Was the second marriage a ‘cover’?

2:8 Decembrist: Megan Boone on social media (11/20/2014)

This is kind of exciting. I knew Megan Boone had a write-up in CapitolFile (with stunning photographs). But what she says about social media and The Blacklist writing staff is relevant to what is done here and on other blogs. What I mostly inferred in my earlier post (the 12:49pm 11/19 one, after the gay part), she confirms:

2:8 Decembrist: Original Pilot Script (11/19/2014)

For the record, I think Red is straight. I was making a “the case can be made” type of argument.
_________

I have a copy of the original script for The Blacklist pilot (it precedes even the online version which in turn is not identical to the performance). It has more information on Liz’s youth โž” but it may be more important to know that they did decide to change certain things: it could mean they definitely are NOT going with these ideas. For instance, they apparently decided to change the time of the fire from when she was 14 to when she was four (or else there were two fires). Obviously, the final production is what matters. But, just fyi: about Liz’s youth, it says [stage directions in parentheses]:

2:6 Mombasa: In which I get it half wrong… (11/3/2014)

We didn’t get to hear Red’s little talk with Pepper about the Apopha Strain. We also don’t know how Beck found out about the painting, but my guess is it has something to do with Berlin, who is not done with Red, & who is very handy with viruses.

Red: “I suspect this [Cullen virus] incident at the bank is not what it seems, but rather the first shot in a larger, coordinated assault aimed directly at me… a plan devised by someone who doesn’t care how many people die, as long as I’m one of them.”

The urgency of Red’s hunt for “the girl” โ€“ which he describes as ‘critical to his war with Berlin’ โ€“ implies Berlin is on mission that hasn’t ended. My guess is Berlin was behind the Apopha strain attack. Maybe Pepper (who knew things Beck didn’t) got the painting or information on it from Berlin. Perhaps Pepper was going to return the key to Berlin for a reward after spreading the plague. But Red now has the skeleton key โ€“ ‘the key that opens all doors.’ And he has found “the girl” โ€“ Zoรซ, “key” to this extended plot line.

The performance of Swan Lake on March 22, 1987 would have been when Zoรซ was 8-12. She would have been 10-12 in the Stewmaker’s picture (faked?). My guess: she is Berlin’s granddaughter and Red’s stepdaughter. Lizzie is Red’s daughter by the same woman, who was the love of his Iife; Liz & Zoรซ are half-sisters. Berlin blames Red for his daughter’s death, for killing her or for letting it happen. He doesn’t go after Liz because he has found out she is also his granddaughter. (Tom let Berlin know Red was sending money to Sam.)

After a long pause, Red said “No” when Lizzie asked if he was her father because “I will always do what I have to do to keep you safe.” The music box is important.

Red has lied to Liz. In 1:22 Berlin, when Red gets the call from Fitch to say he’s found Berlin and Lizzie asks him if they found Berlin, Red says, “We’ll have keep looking.” Granted, that’s not a direct “No” and Red has a tendency to respond with non sequiturs when asked a direct question (“That’s a nice tie.” “Who decided on this paneling?”) but it’s clear he means her mislead her. He doesn’t want her going with him because it is dangerous. But Tom shows us, takes Liz at gunpoint and they encounter Red where he’s tied up fake-Berlin.

Red’s first wife was killed by someone who hated Red (or someone who wanted him for herself). Red rescued Liz but not now-Zoรซ. He had thought now-Zoรซ died, too. Maybe she was on The Alchemist’s list. Naomi can’t be Berlin’s daughter, obviously, and I doubt Jennifer is Red’s daughter. That marriage had to come later. Was Naomi waiting in the wings? She said the FBI had suspected her.

I’m sure at least half of this is wrong…

Swan Lake is about true love foiled by deception. The Prince is tricked into pledging love to the wrong woman. In dismay, the true lovers agree to die and meet again after death. The beautiful dance we saw at the end of “Mako Tanida” is called “The Dying Swan.”

2:6 Mombasa: Service academies aren’t colleges

@Jim @JBlitz The reference to Red graduating the Naval Academy โ€œby the time he was 24โ€ณ is in the first 10 minutes of the pilot. In the real world, you canโ€™t graduate ahead of your class.

2:6 Mombasa: In which I pour my heart out (10/30/2014)

@A.M. I speculated that Red was an imposter, too, just based on the way Diane Fowler addressed him when he showed up in her home, like “”Red.”” You could just see the quotation marks hanging sarcastically in the air. Still, that’s slim evidence. Maybe her tone was just meant to convey contempt.

2:6 Mombasa: Why the little dancer can’t be Liz (10/30/2014)

I looked up Reddington’s birthday on the on-screen display of the female security guard in the very first scene of the pilot: Feb 7, 1960, same as James Spader (enhanced screenshot: http://bit.ly/1zkNgXZ ). If he “graduated at 24 from the Naval Academy,” that would have been in the spring of 1984 (simple date arithmetic). My husband was on the Honor Committee at West Point and every single time cadets went off base, when they came back they had to sign a statement saying they were “unmarried, … and have no incurred obligations of parenthood” http://1.usa.gov/105GExy. If that signed statement was found to be false, they could be kicked out.
