Spoilers: Even here, Red is one step ahead of us

Recommended Posts

From Ask Ausiello:

Question: Anything on The Blacklist? —Shirin

Ausiello: Look for Liz to at long last come face-to-face with Tom’s murderer (aka Ian Garvey) in a spring episode that also happens to be half of a two-parter. And as you might expect, their run-in is fairly dramatic. One might even say it’s killer.

From Ask Ausiello:

Question: Anything on The Blacklist? —Sam


Ausiello: Now that Red’s other daughter is in the picture, the NBC drama will spend some time exploring the twisted dynamics between Jennifer, Ian Garvey, Red and Liz. “We watched Ian Garvey murder Tom. Clearly, he’s a bad guy,” series creator Jon Bokenkamp tells us. “But Jennifer paints him in a different light and has an entirely different experience than Liz or Reddington have had with him. His connection with Jennifer, and their shared history, is going to unfold [in the April 25 episode], and it’s an incredibly intimate and unexpected story.”

From EW's The Spoiler Room:

Scoop on The Blacklist please! What can you tease for the final episodes of the season?— Aly


It’s all hands on deck as the team scrambles to find Samar after her abduction. “Samar’s been taken by a Class-A-Blacklister of super-weirdo-proportions,” EP Jon Bokenkamp says. “I can assure, never before have we put one of our main characters in a situation like this — next week is ugly, physical, isolated, and there are no guarantees she’s gonna come out of this. For real. This is as emotional as it gets.”

Yeah ....... I highly doubt that. 

Why would a "Class-A" blacklister be hanging out in small town New Hampshire ?

Why would Red want the bones of a dead person? If he gets caught/losed immunity deal how would they come into play. This is not sentimentality. The corpse is proof of something. Where is the leverage, too many seem to know it's importance.

Red wants to grind the bones to make his bread like the giant in 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.      I got nothing.

The Blacklist boss on that show-changing finale shocker

 

From EW's Spoiler Room (a possible hint for S6):

Quote

Thanks for those Blacklist breadcrumbs. Did Jon Bokenkamp say anything more on why Naomi would allow this imposter version of Red in her life? — Rowen


If you’re asking whether Mary-Louise Parker will return via flashback next season — don’t forget, Naomi is dead — the answer is TBD. EP Jon Bokenkamp says they don’t have a specific storyline for her in mind, but she doesn’t have to appear in the flesh to make an impact. “If I were Elizabeth Keen, I would certainly sit down with the file of Naomi Hyland and scrub through that and see what stones may be left unturned,” he says. “That’s one of those things in terms of surprising ourselves as we go along that is interesting. I’m really intrigued by the thread of truth that Liz can start to tug at and see how she unravels this mystery. There’s a number of different approaches she can take and I think, yes, Naomi Hyland is one of them, but there are a number of them.”

From TV Line, Matt's Inside Line:

Any news on the upcoming season of The Blacklist? —Aly


Coy Stewart (aka Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Flint) will recur during Season 6 as a young man caught in the prison system for crimes he didn’t commit; during his time behind bars, he has learned how to keep his head low and blend into the scenery, a skill that has served him well. (Reminder: The Blacklist returns with a two-nigh premiere on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 10/9c and then Friday, Jan. 10 at 9 pm.)

From TV Line, The Blacklist Boss Teases Liz and Jennifer's Quest to Destroy Red — See Photos of Their Season 6 Team-Up:

Still, even though Liz and Jennifer have a common goal — to ruin Red’s imposter and get to the root of his many secrets — Bokenkamp hints that “the way in which they will choose to run down this story is not always going to be the same. They may not always agree.”

And lest you think that Liz will have a strictly by-the-book approach to taking down the fake Raymond Reddington, Bokenkamp can assure you that The Blacklist‘s leading lady is “not necessarily a squeaky-clean FBI agent” in Season 6.

Blacklist EP Previews 'New Territory' of Season 6: 'Liz Is In the Driver's Seat'

“Liz is faced with this choice of, ‘What do you do with this information?’ Do you go to the FBI? Do you confront Reddington? What do you do?” series creator Jon Bokenkamp tells us. “She is going to make a choice to stay quiet about it, which will put her in the driver’s seat in a way that we really haven’t seen before… She has to present as his daughter. She has to continue as if it’s same old, same old.”

As for Red’s role in all of this, Bokenkamp can confirm that when the sixth season begins, Red legitimately does not know that Liz is aware of his big secret, which will complicate the pair’s dynamic even more.

“As far as he’s concerned, he burned those bones, he got the bag away from Liz and he bested her,” Bokenkamp says. “He has no reason to believe that he is not three steps ahead of anyone else.”

From Matt's Inside Line on TV Line:

Any scoop on The Blacklist? –Marsha


This Friday’s two-parter (starting at 8/7c) “is going to put Reddington in a box he’s never been in before — on the witness stand,” series creator Jon Bokenkamp tells Inside Line. “Not only will audiences hear Reddington speak about his past in an incredibly open, direct and candid way, but they’ll get insight into exactly why he became the Concierge of Crime.” All told, “This set of episodes will finally reveal why Raymond Reddington is wanted for treason.”

Obviously Red isn't going to die. This season is 22 episodes and the one that just aired was only episode 11. 

On top of that:

NBC has renewed its esteemed drama series "The Blacklist" for a seventh season. Season to date "The Blacklist" is averaging a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.3 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research. It's been a strong performer in delayed viewing, growing by 119% going from "live plus same day" to L+7 Nielsens in adults 18-49 (from a 0.57 rating to a 1.25) and by 3.4 million persons (3.9 million to 7.3 million). "The Blacklist" is also this season's #1 most upscale drama on the Big 4 networks among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes, indexing at a 140 among those viewers in L+7 results (100 represents an average concentration of those homes). "Congratulations to our amazing producers, cast and crew, all of whom continue to work at the top of their game and make 'The Blacklist' one of NBC's signature series," said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment.

From Ask Ausiello:

Question: Any scoop on The Blacklist? Specifically, if the second memory manipulation will be addressed in Season 7? —Jen

Ausiello: EP Jon Bokenkamp tells us, “The short answer is ‘yes’. We are going to be doing an episode that dives into memory extraction and manipulation, but [it will not be] about Liz’s memories. This time we’re doing something entirely new, and these memories are going to give us a fresh perspective on the events we’ve already seen. Buckle up.”

Question: It seems everyone on The Blacklist — Red, Liz, Aram and Cooper—- got a big episode early in the season. When can we expect a Ressler episode? —Daisy

Ausiello: Bokenkamp promises that he has “not overlooked Ressler,” adding, “It’s safe to say, Ressler might be sitting on a little secret of his own, and we’ll be digging that up in the back half of this season.”

Alot of possibilities. I'm wondering if Ilya knew Red wasn't dead but told Katarina that being he was his actual handler. Or Ilya came from the doppleganger camp Tom discovered in the Blacklist spinoff. Still think that camp is going to come into play.

Or is Katarina a doppleganger, surely she could tell the real Red or Ilya.

What 2nd memory manipulation is the interviewer talking about ?  Berlin, maybe ?

Pretty much just trying to hype up the convoluted nonsense that the writers are going to spew.  Almost as bad as Lost had become toward the end of its weak run.

@Milkyaqua -- I think this is the link you were going for

https://tvline.com/2019/12/13/the-blacklist-spoilers-season-7-episode-10-preview-liz-katarina/

From that article:

"Fair warning, though, Blacklist fans: The EP also admits that “some of those questions will still be lingering when we go into the back half of the season.”

Which basically means we won't get any answers, probably just a bunch of new questions.  So, we still won't know who Lizzie's father is after tonight.  Sigh.

Thanks for that ottoDbusdriver.  Yeah, I haven't been able to watch this season so I've just been following recaps and this forum.  If this isn't the final season, I'll be dumbfounded.  It's like a continual rabbit hole with no ending in sight.  Ugh!  And Bokenkamp's insistence that there is a point to it all and that he and the other PTB know what it is, I find laughable at best.

It seems like were circling back with Lizzie hugging her KGB roots and miffed at Reddington AGAIN. They should just make her one of the permanent baddies.

That being said I guess we will be revisting the night of fire and/or when Red was killed/not killed.

Also Liz going to be ticked when she needs memory scrambler guy to undo what he might of done and finds out Ressler returned the favor.

I think this "memory manipulation" is a bunch of BS crap so the writers can do whatever they want and explain it away as someone's bogus "memory." They've already contradicted themselves multiple times. "He said/she said."

I'm waiting for Liz to wake up in bed with Tom in the shower. "Hey honey, I just had the craziest dream."

From TVLine:  The Blacklist Season 7 Adds Nip/Tuck's Joely Richardson as Reddington's Former Flame — 2020 FIRST LOOK

Series creator Jon Bokenkamp adds that Richardson’s installment is “an out-of-pattern episode” for the show that will essentially only involve Red and Cassandra.

“It’s not a bottle episode, but it’s a fun, incredibly intense whodunit episode that breaks the pattern of the case of the week,” he reveals, while Eisendrath teases that the episode is “our homage to Agatha Christie.”
