The Blacklist Season 4 is less than a month to its premiere.?With the release date finally confirmed, the installment is getting more speculations. One of those states that the upcoming season will reveal the true identity of Elizabeth Keen?s biological father.
During the finale of the third season, it can be recalled that Elizabeth ?Liz? Keen (Megan Boone) and Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) planned an escape to Cuba. However, Alexander Kirk got in the way and kidnapped Liz before dropping a huge revelation – he is her biological father, Constantine Rostova.
There are speculations that Alexander is just playing with Liz?s mind. But, there is also a possibility that what he mentioned is true. As of now, there is still no confirmation whether or not Alex is Liz?s father. What is sure, though, is that the truth will be revealed in the upcoming season.
Rumors on The Blacklist Season 4 point to the fact that Raymond ?Red? Reddington (James Spader) will be the next antagonist in the show. Executive producer John Eisendrath mentioned in an interview that Liz is inclined to believe what Alexander told her. If that would be the case, then it would leave Red as the only option to play the antagonist role instead of Alexander.
Likewise, the show?s co-executive producer, Jon Bokenkamp, also noted that Alexander?s revelation will greatly affect the relationship between Liz and Red in the upcoming season. That statement would hint that Red has indeed the possibility of becoming a bad character.
Alexander?s Real Plan All Along
Alexander could only be playing with Liz?s head and this might be his real intention: break the bond between Liz and Red. On a good note, the recently released trailer featured the two characters in good terms. This?would suggest that Alexander will not be successful in turning the two against each other.
As of now, there is no clear indication what will really happen in The Blacklist Season 4. But fans certainly want to know the real deal about Liz?s biological father.
