LOVE THIS SHOW!!! What about the guy watching Liz and Tom? Cant wait for next week...

I lean towards thinking the woman is Liz's mother. Thus why he killed the stew maker and why there is a resemblance to Liz. I think the scene in the Doctor's office was telling and it inferred that Red had some level of plastic surgery done to him, as the doctor said "you look good. skin looks tight". I might be assuming a lot, but that's what I got here.

All we got was she was adopted at the age of 4. Red never said i am her father so why are people claiming its confirmed he is her father???

The dialogue, "You will always be her father Sam. I can only hope to love her and protect her as you have." is what is making people confident that they've given us our answer. Red is reassuring Sam that he won't try to assume the role of "Father" after Sam's death, and the only way Sam might worry about that is there is a reason Red might try to do that, such as the fact he is her biological father. That said, with this show, who knows?

I'm not sure who Red really is but I tend to think he's protecting her from her mother…just guessing

Did anyone notice that 042983 is Megan Boone's real birthday?

Just watched the scene for a second time. Watch how the cold stare on Tom's face and how swallows real hard when Red says, "Watching through her eyes all those who get close. He'll always be there. She will be fine."

And then a knowing but creepy smile followed by words that could be construed as a threat: "I hope you're right."

Maybe I am seeing things I want to see and maybe Tom is just a school-teacher, but the background music also added to the creepiness of the scene.

Lots of thoughts in my mind. But the scene between Red and Tom was definitely spooky. Red looked directly in Tom's eyes when he spoke the words that Lizzy's father will always be there for her, protecting her etc. And Tom shifted around uncomfortably in his seat. There was a definite sense of acknowledgement of the words that Red spoke about protecting Lizzy.

The writers/directors may not have intended it that way, but that one scene let on a helluva lot of information for me. If this show's taught me anything, it is never to take anything it presents at face value, but I think that scene is meant to be taken at face value.

Another great episode of The Blacklist. Except Episode Two, every one of this show's episodes have been rock-solid entertainers, always advancing the story and the characters and always keeping us second guessing as to what each character's true motive is.

And though this episode revealed a lot of information, it also turned up a lot more questions. Who was the girl at the end? Who are the people tapping up on Tom and Lizzy? That shower scene was plain creepy IMO.

Also, I agree with Carla that the FBI-Red relationship is lopsided. Can you imagine a Top 10 Wanted criminal being given access to the FBI database, by the Assistant Director himself? I cannot. Also, it goes back to what Red said in his last episode. He can disappear any time he wants to. The only reason he is staying around is to protect Lizzy. From what. We don't know yet.

They've set up the Red character that way. He's in control of every relationship, every situation he's been in so far. Even when Kean blurted out that she was an FBI agent to the doctor, he regained control and pinned the blame on the poor guy for revealing information. The beauty of this show is that Red is manipulating almost every one else he's come in contact with.

Part of me didn't want Red to be her Dad....it seemed to obvious. But at the same time he is so protective of her like a Dad it wouldn't feel right if he isn't. I just watched the scene with Tom and Red again....spooky. If Tom is a hit man/spy whatever you want to call him, you would think that he would know that Red is the FBI most wanted. So based on that then Their conversation would be an unwritten acknowledgement of who each other is and hence Toms reaction to Reds speech would be one of not messing with this dude and certain fear about being threatened by him. I have to say that I am seriously addicted to this show....soo good!!!

Gotta say, since they started advertising "The Black List" last summer, it seemed obvious that Red is LIzzie father, so I'm guessing he's not. That would be too easy and something the FBI and Lizzie could have figured out already. Can you say DNA! Red did not kill her Father to keep a secret; Sam kind of requested it and gave the nod when he knew Red was getting ready to do it. Sam had kept their secret all these years, he could have told her when he was on the phone but he didn't. Whatever it is he took it to the grave. Whoever is watching Liz's house is watching her husband not her. Apple guy made that comment about "well we know he doesn't work for Red". Whoever he works for Red must know cause he's trying to protect Lizzie. Btw, did Red set up the FBI, even though they came to him for help. Red seems to be brilliant. He ended up with the plates, he also worked very well with Lizzie getting the name from the plastic surgeon, Red is fast on his feet, when she blew their cover. Lizzie is kind of a pain in the ass.
