Unanswered QuestionsEdit

  1. FBI task force
    1. The task force has lost it moral superiority. Why are they continuing the illusion of stating their morals?
    2. Why was the task force opposed to killing Constantin Rostov? They have accepted Red’s other actions.
    3. Donald Ressler’s actions and double standards in Season 3 have undermined his judgement and credibility.
  2. Elizabeth Keen
    1. What happened to the Rostov family that the members were forced to go into exile and hiding?
    2. Why did Keen and Tom Keen choose Cuba?
  3. Raymond Reddington
    1. Nemec’s and Tom’s actions indicate that Red is losing his perspective and is at risk of destroying himself.
    2. How did Red not know that Kirk’s real name was Rostov?
      1. A: It is never indicated that Red didn't know his real name. When Red was presenting Kirk to the FBI, he did state that Kirk was an alias. With how close Red was to Katarina and his history with Rostov, it is very likely Red knew his real name.
    3. What will Red do to Kathryn Nemec and Nik Korpal?
    4. Nemec's actions are continuing the theme of Red's primary aides double crossing him. This will undermine the loyalty in his syndicate.
    5. Why did Red tell Ressler the truth about Keen being alive?
      1. A: Possibly to rally the FBI's support to look for her.
    6. Why was Red planning to leave after killing Constantin Rostov? The Blacklist has numerous numbers left to identify.
      1. A: A large part of the reason he joined was to look after Elizabeth Keen. With her gone, Milos Kirchoff dead, Peter Kotsiopulos dead, and the Cabal largely at peace with Red, the only reason to stay (that we would know of) is to avenge Liz's death. Considering Red seemed perfectly fine with dying or being arrested if it meant killing Kirk, he is probably not thinking clearly either.
    7. Red’s tank truck plan relied on a razor thin margin of success for the timing.
    8. How did Red know that Susan Scott Hargrave had offered Tom a job?
      1. A: Red could have talked to Hargrave.
    9. Why did Red want Robert Diaz to give Keen a pardon? Many people treated her with suspicion after Laurel Hitchin publicly stated her innocence.
  4. Constantin Rostov
    1. Why are the Russian characters so obsessed with family? The Russian characters on the show have been persuaded and/or motivated by the need to avenge or rebuild their families. In “Alias”, the Derevko family members aid each other regardless of their personal agendas.
    2. Will Rostov’s United States bank accounts be frozen?
    3. Why are the majority of Rostov’s bank accounts in the United States?
    4. Why did Rostov’s visit require heavy security?
    5. What was the significance of the blood treatment and bleeding?
      1. A: He may need Liz's or Agnes' blood or organs to heal himself.
    6. What is “the organization” one of Rostov's male aids mentioned when talking about the illegal gas?
  5. Samar Navabi
    1. Was Navabi speaking of her brother when she told Harold Cooper that she had already “crossed the line”?
      1. A: No. She was talking about when she killed the Scimitar.
  6. Why did the market/store have uniformed security?

Slanders on the FBIEdit
