Problem I have with Red being her father is why wouldn't the FBI have run a dna scan? They have to have thought of that possibility and they have access to samples from both. Also I wonder about the pistol in the box. I don't think a pro would keep a weapon used in a hit. At least not a common easily replaced pistol.
The references to the Old Testament are pretty heavy handed I think.
lucifer, eve, the apple, redemption, lies, Job, Adam
I have forever disliked James Spader, or shall I say the roles he played. He was always cast in the smug, condescending, spoilt man-child roles and he did it so well that I could not stand him :)
With this role in this show I have totally changed my mind about him. In this role he is smug, condescending and spoilt and I love him for it :)
What a fascinating show.
Red will do anything for Liz. The stewmaker had an (old)photo of a young woman he cared about.
Am I the only one thinking Liz is Red's biological daughter, adopted when she was a baby (and she doesn't know she is adopted, of course, and maybe that woman in the photo was her mother?
The show is great...like watching Dr Lechter and Agent Starling in a series...
Remember he has the new tracking chip in his neck. The bigger mystery is why he is doing this? I know he hates the Blacklisters with a passion but why go after them. Red is a coldblooded killer when it comes to the Blacklist. What drives him to this seeming contradiction.
As to people wondering why Red is allowed to move around so freely, he answered it on the show himself. "I am a criminal. The minute I stop being one, I become quite useless to you." The FBI want what he has, and so far he's given them a lot more. As the end of the show suggested, he also gave them their drug lord. So why wouldn't they let him move around freely, it is part of the deal.
Also I loved the meeting scene with the drug lord. The way Red set up Ressler, and the way he responded. Just brilliant writing and direction.
The comments section is proof enough of what makes this show super-awesome. So many theories. So many questions. Not enough answers. Nearly everybody has an other side to them on this show.
I also think it is interesting that not a lot of people are talking about the first scene of the show (in the Pilot). The guy hands him the briefcase and says, "Must be good to be back home, sir!" And Red replies, "Yeah, we'll see about that."
The way the scene was shot and staged tells me that it was not just inserted at the beginning offhand. There's more to that scene. Why does the person address him Sir? Though I don't have answers now.
I do love the extent to which Red will go to protect Lizzy. And I agree with others that Tom's calmness is eerily unsettling. There's certainly more to him as well.
This is, by far, the best new show on television.
I have to say that this fill's the loss of Dexter perfectly. James Spader is so good in this show. The directing and acting if so fine tuned.
