Unanswered QuestionsEdit

  1. Elizabeth Keen

      1. A: The real Raymond Reddington.
    2. What happened the night of the fire?
      1. A: Elizabeth shot Reddington and his identity was later stolen by an imposter.
  2. Raymond Reddington
    1. Will Red employ Sonia Bloom?
      1. A: He already put her on payroll. That was one of her conditions to help her.
  3. Constantin Rostov
    1. What did Red tell Rostov?
      1. A: Possibly that Katarina was still alive. During the episode, Kirk mentioned how suicide was out of character for Katarina. In “Drexel”, Red was looking for a client of Drexel's who had knowledge of Red and Liz. In “Lady Ambrosia”, Red received a file on Katarina and he looked surprised at what he read.
      2. A: It could also be the truth about who Reddington really is and his actual connection to Liz, as heavily implied by Diane Fowler and Peter Kotsiopulos and revealed in Season 6.
  4. Katarina Rostova
    1. Is Katarina Rostova alive?
      1. A: Yes.
    2. Why was Rostova assigned to Red?
      1. A: Red was suspected of being a spy, and he was in fact an Intelligence Officer in the Navy.

    1. Ressler has broken his adherence to the ideals of law and justice.
  6. Kathryn Nemec

      1. A: Most likely headed back to Washington DC to begin her revenge plan against Reddington.
  7. Odette
    1. Why did Odette decide to kill Keen? Rostov would have found out.
      1. A: Odette openly hated Liz, jealous of her and blaming him for his latest extremist actions, thinking he became obsessed with her. Since Kirk no longer had any use for her, she saw it as the perfect opportunity to exact her ”revenge”.
    2. Did Odette survive the fall? She could have survived and swam away.
