Questions & Answers

Part of what makes The Blacklist one of the most suspenseful and engaging shows on television is the complex mythology that weaves together secret backgrounds, strained alliances, and mysterious relations all of which are surrounded by questions both answered and unanswered. When almost every character we meet has multiple identities and answers often lead to more questions it's enough to make any viewer's head spin!

Unless you're keeping track!
Here we can keep a record of all the information we've learned.
Both the Questions that have been answered.
And the ones still wrapped in Mystery.

Thanks for opening this thread, Asya. I like this idea.

There are still many unanswered questions. Oh show!

Oh I know. I know there are so many more I was wondering about earlier. I'm sure we'll have a few to add after the rewatch too.

Hopefully I can add some more questions (and answers) when I've done my rewatch.

I'll have to think about more questions after rewatching the Pilot. All I can think of right now is this: Why did Red surrender to FBI and what motive does he have?

I have another one.

How did Red come up with his Blacklist? Are these the people that owe him for a crime they committed against him without their knowledge?

oohhh that's a good question I wonder if they'll ever tell us why Red chose those particular criminals for the list.

I think he's plotting some revenge of course but why these particular criminals and why so many? We're bound to see plenty more next season but at least we have a big baddie now in the person of Berlin.

I wonder if there's an even bigger picture to Red's list/plan that no one has figured out yet. I bet what Liz figured out in the finale is only the tip of the iceberg

I agree, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Red's plans are larger in extent. We still need to know if Red and Liz's father has a connection.

I also love that for a while Liz even asked Red if he was her father. I like that the writers addressed that as most of the fans have been asking that in the earlier part of the season.
