Mr. "Kate" Kaplan (Kathryn Nemec) is a very mysterious woman. She has worked for Raymond Reddington for many years. She is Reddington's personal "cleaner" who comes in to scrub crime scenes. She helps Reddington clean up after he kills Diane Fowler. She also disposed the bodies of Lucy Brooks and the Cowboy after they are found by Reddington's people. Before she started working for Red, she was hired by Katarina Rostova to be Liz's nanny. She became friends with Katarina after discovering she was a Soviet spy and learned that she was having an affair with Reddington. When Katarina was forced to flee and abandon her daughter, Kaplan left Liz with her foster father, Sam. Later, she fell in love with a woman named Annie Kaplan, and assumed her surname after Annie was murdered in front of her. She then joined Reddington's employ to protect Liz, on the understanding that she would always place Liz's interests ahead of his. Mr. Kaplan faked Liz's death with the knowledge and help of Liz, Tom and Nik to help Liz and her daughter escape Red's lifestyle. Red finds out that Mr. Kaplan faked Liz's death after an associate of him tells him that Mr. Kaplan made arrangements for Tom and Agnes to leave the country. Red demands that Mr. Kaplan tells him where Tom and Agnes are and tells her that Alexander Kirk is after them. Then Mr. Kaplan reveals that Liz is still alive and is with Tom and Agnes. She is shot in the head by Red but survives and is held hostage by an unknown man. She later recovers and leaves. She exhumes all the bodies she buried for Reddington over the years, intending to use them to destroy him. She confronts Red, she declares that it is impossible for the two of them to coexist. After that Kaplan attacks the task force, first attempting to steal a copy of Reddington's immunity agreement with the DOJ and give it to Julian Gale. When Reddington foils this plan, Kaplan agrees to testify about Reddington's crimes to a grand jury. Before doing so, she exhumes a suitcase containing the skeleton of an unknown individual. After the grand jury is dissolved through Reddington's machinations, Kaplan is cornered by the FBI and Reddington. The latter refuses to kill her and admits his remorse for trying in the first place, but she tells him that she has arranged for an accomplice to give Liz "the truth" after her death, then she commits suicide.
