Miranda, no problem at all. It's so many questions already, I somehow have to check them all out before adding a question... This time I just recalled that I had added the question the other day because it was one of mine.

What do you mean with this question Kris? "What's beginning?"

and we can answer question nr. 15. "What's in that safe deposit box Alan Fitch referred to?" A card with a phone number

Wrong questions, Miranda... I meant

What is happening? because that guy on the phone told Red that it's happening and Red asks him what...

And I'll answer that question now, Miranda

They might tease us a bit like they did with the guys watching the Keens in S1 but I hope they won't tease us for long. I can see his identity revealed before S2 ends.

I think and hope it will be revealed who that guy is in the season finale!

Now I remember him telling Red on the phone Kris. Good question and thanks for putting the answer in the OP

I hope you're right Lindsay. I really want to find out who he is and how he is tied into Red/Fitch and everything. Having to wait a really long time would be so annoying. Especially since we already have so much other stuff we're waiting to find out about.

Right now I have no idea who that man is. But I'm gonna make a guess that it's a new character and is someone from Red's past.
