Harold Cooper is the Assistant Director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division and head of the covert FBI task force assigned to pursue the criminals on Red's Blacklist. He had a particular interest in Reddington's past, and is willing to oblige Reddington's unusual requests due to this understanding of him. He was attacked and put into a coma by Berlin's agents. When Cooper regained consciousness, it is revealed that he has inoperable brain tumor. With the help of his friend, Attorney General Connolly, he entered an experimental drug trial. However, he has had to compromise his ethics and perform various morally dubious tasks for Connolly in order to stay in his favor and remain in the trial. After a few months Cooper discovers that he was never sick and that Tom Connolly set the whole thing up. After he witnesses Liz's murder of Connolly, he tells her to run, and later turns over his badge. Ressler interrogates him to determine his complicity in Connolly's murder, but eventually decides to release him. Cooper is told by Wright that in order for him to have the charges dropped against him, Cooper not only has to resign, but also take a desk job. Although he reluctantly does, Cooper is determined to help Liz clear her name and he teams up with Tom to find Karakurt. Later, Tom brings Karakurt to Cooper's house and they are forced to flee with Charlene when the Cabal sends a team to kill Karakurt. Charlene suggests they hide at their neighbor's cabin, admitting that she had cheated on Cooper with him. Cooper is reinstated as head of the task force after Liz is exonerated. Later, he separates from Charlene.

"The ones that let anger & emotion, prejudice & carelessness affect their behavior are every good cop's worst nightmare."

social media

"None of us are the people we were before this task force started. Before Reddington."

"I admire that about you, Harold. I know so many zealots, men and women who choose a side, an ideology by which to interpret the world.
But to get up every single day and do the hard work of deciding what to believe, what’s right today, when to stand up or stand down, that’s courage.
It’s been a privilege, to see firsthand why the people you lead love you the way they do." - Raymond Reddington

the reasons
Because he would do anything for his team.
Because he shares a past with Red we'd love to know about.
Because he isn't as black and white anymore as he used to be.
Because he's been played by Connolly, one of his best friends, as well.
Because he wanted to spend the last of his days with his family.
Because he's a moral code that we all are proud of.
Because he wasn't willing to leak classified information.
Because he tried to save Liz by trying to prevent her from shooting Connolly.
Because he told Liz to run.
Because he'll always be the AD and the head of the task force for us.
Because he considers Liz like a daughter to him.
Because he held a really nice speech at Liz's funeral.

"You didn't let him go. You put him in Reddington's debt, a place I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy."
"You've become more of a liability than an asset."

"But after what I did today, the truth is, I don't recognize myself."

future titles
"You want to play the angles? You want to leverage your friends and colleagues, at least have the decency to admit it."
"I'm out. I'm not leaking classified data, not for you, not for anybody."
"You once told me that I was the one person you completely trusted. I violated that trust. I'm sorry, Elizabeth."

past titles
"I lost a dozen people today, Keen! This isn't on you, it's on me!"
"I've crossed my share of lines in this job. I've always told myself that wouldn't be one."
"Guess my principles aren't what they used to be. Neither are yours."
"I'm committed that no one under my command dies during the remainder of my watch."
"You've become more of a liability than an asset."
"The ones that let anger & emotion, prejudice & carelessness affect their behavior are every good cop's worst nightmare."
"But after what I did today, the truth is, I don't recognize myself."

Miranda, thanks so much for the new one :flowers: It was waiting for you a while now :P :lol:

Miranda 08-27-2018 01:13 PM

You're welcome. Good work needs some time. :lol:

Lauren Helen Graham 08-28-2018 04:18 AM

:lmao: Yeah yeah...

So, Cooper, here we go again and hope for a really good storyline for you in the upcoming season ;) Some involvement in Red's past would be fantastic :D

Miranda 08-28-2018 11:32 AM

That would be fantastic. He deserves a good storyline!

Lauren Helen Graham 08-29-2018 06:13 AM

He does. Some involvement would be great and therewith I don't mean just as the boss :lol:

Miranda 08-29-2018 12:05 PM

I know what you mean. Something like his storyline when he was sick but without him being sick and dying.

Fangirl49 08-30-2018 06:33 PM

He has a history with real Red and I think this Red. I would love to learn the story.

Miranda 09-02-2018 11:51 AM

I think he only has history with our Red and not the real one. I don't know why but that is what I think.

Lauren Helen Graham 09-03-2018 03:11 AM

Hm, I really don't know who he has history with... I can't say. I would say with our Red as well... For the real Red, I think him too young somehow. :shrug:

Miranda 09-06-2018 08:46 AM

Yes I think he would too young as well. Cooper I mean.

Fangirl49 09-07-2018 12:45 PM

He was on a mission to rescue the real Red. But I don't think they met. But I do think Cooper very young then

Lauren Helen Graham 09-08-2018 01:41 PM

Hm, I really can't tell. I still think Cooper is younger than Red, but not too much I guess. :shrug: It's hard to tell, really.

Fangirl49 09-08-2018 04:11 PM

You know since we're getting close to these episodes, I have no idea why the writers decided his wife should have an affair. That was unnecessary

Miranda 09-09-2018 11:44 AM

Yes that was totally unnecessary. :nod: And they showed us that and now we don't even know whether they are still married or if they got divorced.
