The Blacklist Mythology
QUESTIONS A N D ANSWERS | 3nd A P P R E C I A T I O N T H R E A D

They never got there because Ressler's father refused to get on the pay-roll and so a drug dealer put a bullet in him. It was a trap, set by the crookedest cop of all, Tommy Markin.

    >> Gina Zanetakos is, like Jacob/Tom, a student of the Major's school. Our guess is that Gina and Jacob/Tom got to know each other at the school. They used to be lovers until Jacob/Tom started to care for and fall for Elizabeth Keen. He dumped Gina for Liz. After Gina escaped prison she was working on a new assignment for the Major. Tom contacted her to ask her for help, for money. Gina, after being refused of his love again, betrayed him by getting him shot. The purpose was to kill him which she didn't manage to do. She's gone into the wind again.

You're welcome I'm sure we'll get tons of questions again and we'll get answers, too I especially look forward to the answers although it's intriguing what new mysteries they'll come up with. I'm sure there will be surprises again.

And Miranda, since I had brought it over to the last thread, here the full quote of the title again for you: Red to Lizzie.
"It's all just pieces of a much larger puzzle, and until all the pieces are laying in front of you, it won't go together"

That is a great quote! It's a shame we couldn't use it completely cause it's too long.

I can't wait to see what they come up with this season!

Would you mind adding this title to the top of the OP so they are all the same.

And you really didn't recall that quote at all?

I added the title but you would have to go with a different font since this is the thread that has the other font in the OP... I'm sure you recall us talking about it before, right?

Thanks for adding it Kris. The other font looks good too and it does fit the OP better.

I know it is so annoying! Otherwise I could have used in the post count thread if the font wouldn't have changed.

Could we do the OP without using the list function? Maybe still number them, but just do it manually?
