With the popular crime drama series The Blacklist returning for Season 4 next Thursday, NBC released promo photos of its upcoming premiere episode titled ?Esteban.? The show also dropped the teaser as well as the synopsis of the premiere episode and things do get real exciting. After last year?s cliffhangers and big revelations, fans are already pretty much excited to learn what the future holds for Raymond Reddington and Liz Keen.
Red on the Way to Find Liz:
Though the synopsis of ?Esteban? hints that Red is set to find Liz at any cost, their reunion isn?t happening any time soon. The promo photos show that at least it won?t happen in the first two episodes.
Synopsis: After Liz (Megan Boone) is abducted by a man claiming to be her father, Red (James Spader) sets out to find her at any cost. Meanwhile, the Task Force grapples with the shocking news that Liz is still alive.
The Season 3 finale revealed that Tom had helped Liz faked her own death to escape from Red and the Task Force. She, along with Tom and her daughter Agnes, moves to Cuba. But unfortunately, Liz is kidnapped by Alexander Kirk.
The promo photos reveal that Red has reached Cuba in his search for Liz. He is accompanied by his trusted aides Dembe and Mr Kaplan. With Kirk involved, Red is likely to involve someone else and it seems Esteban is the likely person. The promo photos show Esteban, as well as another character, Mato, from Episode 2.
Ressler too seemingly has reached Cuba according to the promo photos. On the other hand, Liz is seen with Alexander Kirk. Tom, meanwhile is digging, hinting at another mystery in the future of the show.
Alexander Kirk Not Biological father
Though Kirk clearly says he is the father of Liz Keen, it remains questionable. He told Liz in the Season 3 finale that he is her real father, Constantine Rosov. Series creator Jon Bokenkamp also previously said Kirk is telling the truth about being Liz?s father.
However, there are speculations as to Kirk not being a biological father to Liz. It is speculated that Red, in fact, had some relationship with Liz?s mother who probably was married to Kirk. In a trailer for The Blacklist Season 4, Liz questioned Red about the fire, asking him what happened and if he had been there that night.
Red admitted that he?d been in the house during the fire and had the scars to prove it. Speculations are high that Red was having an affair with Liz?s mother. It is also one of the reasons why Kirk and Red are long time enemies.
The Blacklist Season 4 premieres Thursday, September 22 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
