Who is Tom Keen?

Thomas Vincent Keen, (born Christopher Hargrave) is an elementary school teacher who turns out to be a covert operative. Tom was a social outcast and petty thief and doesn't know who his parents are. He was recruited at the age of 14 by The Major due to the combination of sociopathy and extreme talent, to be groomed for covert operations. Reddington acquired him from The Major in order keep an eye on Elizabeth Keen. Tom got romantically involved with Liz which led Red to fire him. To protect himself and Liz, Tom went to Berlin and the Major reassigned Tom's contract to Berlin when offered double Red's original price. Tom married Liz and they were trying to adopt a child together. Their marriage is annulled when Liz finds out who and what Tom really is. Liz shoots him and stages his death, but keeps him prisoner on a boat for several months in order to extract as much information as possible. After his escape, he goes back to work for The Major again. As a covert operation as a neo-Nazi drug and arms dealer in Germany goes south, The Major, sees Tom as a liability and tries to shoot Tom but the Germans intercept them; Tom bargains for their lives and they both manage to escape, but The Major is still set to have Tom killed. Desperate, Tom hides at Liz's place and pleads her to give him his passports. She gives them to him and Tom departs on his boat to Japan to begin his new life. He comes back to help save Liz who is on the run after murdering the Attorney General. Tom goes after Karakurt, the only person that can exonerate Liz. Tom finds Karakurt and hold him hostage until he clears Liz name. After Liz is released, Tom and Liz plan on getting married again but that didn't go as planned. Red tells Tom who his parents are and at first he doesn't want to have anything to do with them but after a while he decides to work for Scottie Hargrave in order to find out who his parents are.

"Whatever you think you know about Tom Keen, forget it. The bookish elementary school teacher was a masterful illusion.
The man is an extremely talented covert operative. I’m not surprised he convinced you that his persona was real. Once he takes on a new identity, he convinces himself."

Because he is very mysterious.
Because he keeps us guessing.
Because good or bad we love him.
Because he is very badass.
Because when the glasses come off he immediately changes.
Because he shapes the minds of tomorrow's youth.
Because he does have a good heart.
Because he is in love with Liz.
Because he is a loving father to his little girl.
Because he wants to be a better man.
Because he will do whatever it takes to keep his family safe.
Because he finally started looking into who he really is.
Because he considers Nez as his sister and he would do anything to protect her.

I wonder how they relationship with Tom and his father is going to be. I love that Terry O'Quinn is going to play his father!

I'm so excited about Terry being casted as Tom's father as well And I'm really wondering in general what Tom's father will be like... Wasn't it indicated that he wasn't too well?

I think someone was on a ventilator. Was that supposed to be Tom's father? I honestly can't remember now.

So, I wonder how Tom will feel about his new family.

I don't know how Tom's father was supossed to be doing. I thought somebody was on a ventilator in Scottie's house but I don't know if it was his father.

I recall a person being on the ventilator but we never were told who it was... There just was somebody. I doubt it's been his father, honestly.

Hm, I really don't know how Tom would feel. He made it clear that all that counts for him is his future, his own family, not his past Not too much caring from him here I guess?

You remember that we at first thought it was Liz who was lying on the ventilator? I am sure it's not Scottie's husband. Maybe it's Scottie father or mother?

Or maybe he only said that to Liz cause he wanted her to break all ties with Kirk and not find out about her past? I doubt that he doesn't want to know anything about his own past.

Yes, I recall that We were so wrong... And hey, it was just pure speculation. My guess was still the faked death with Mr. Kaplan's help and yeah, it was true.

About the ventilator, I really hope that's an answer we'll get in the spin-off. Or maybe even on our show? Tom somehow needs to cross over, right?

I somehow think that Liz and Agnes really would have been enough for him. I don't know why but he seemed so honest there and he has changed. Sadly I think Liz's behavior in the past could change that...

You would think he has to crossover at some point cause it would be weird for him to suddenly disappear from TBL and end up on Redemption without a proper crossover. So I really hope we find out who's on the ventilator.

I somehow don't think that a crossover is necessary. It really would depend on how they make him leave. Although I'm sure they won't make a harsh cut since they don't know how Redemption will do ratings wise and it very well could lead them to get him back in the end.

A promo for one of the upcoming episodes says that tom will be handling father duties and I immediately thought that won't be enough for him. A man like him to suddenly be taking care of the baby only. As I type this I realize I sound sexist and I don't mean to. Raising kids is very important and a hard job. I just don't think it would be enough for Tom
