There’s so much to unravel when NBC’s hit crime drama TV series, “The Blacklist,” returns to the airwaves next month with its highly anticipated fourth season.
Spoiler reports are rife with the details indicating the possibility that Alexander Kirk, who is also known as Constantin Rostov (Ulrich Thomsen), is not really the biological father of Liz Keen (Megan Boone). However, it takes so much effort, at least on the part of Raymond Reddington (James Spader), to convince the mother of Agnes that Kirk is not really the man who he claims to be.
The question remains, will Liz be able to trust Kirk’s word?
According to executive producer (EP) John Eisendrath, this is something that fans should really watch out for come season 4.
“It’s definitely an, ‘Oh my God, who really is this person, what’s his agenda and what is going to happen to Liz?'” the showrunner told Entertainment Weekly.
The EP hinted in a separate interview with EW, that much of season 4 will revolve around these latest developments.
“He [Kirk] says he’s her [Liz] father, but is he going to hurt her, help her, be kind to her, or does he want to destroy her?” Eisendrath said.
Giving further weight to the speculation that Kirk could be lying is the latest promo trailer for season 4. As seen in the clip, Red appears to be in doubt that Kirk is Liz’s father. It seems like his job now is to tell the whole truth to Liz.
At the bottom of all this, the fans are hoping that Liz will come to a realization that she really needs Red to survive. Of course, the show has yet to confirm or debunk the earlier fan theory that it is actually Red who is Liz’s father. However, the evidences, including Red’s undying care and unwavering support could be enough for the viewing public to come up with such notion.
Viewers will eventually find out the truth of the matter when “The Blacklist” season 4 premieres on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 10 p.m. EDT on NBC.
