Unanswered QuestionsEdit

  1. Blackthorne Kincaid was likely a reference to Blackwater.
  2. Elizabeth Keen
    1. Why did Keen use the term mass-casualty weapons instead of weapon of mass destruction?
    2. What will be the political aftermath of Keen’s presidential pardon?
  3. Raymond Reddington
    1. Why did Red wait so long for obtaining a pardon?
      1. A: He saw an opportunity with Diaz after blackmailing him earlier. While he said he has no interest in politics in the White House, he knew he could convince Diaz to give her a pardon.
    2. Will the pardon help? Many people have judged Keen guilty.
      1. A: No, however no longer being a felon allows her to go back to a more normal life.
    3. Why did Red not have Diaz write the presidential pardon?
      1. A: He is only the president-elect. He would not be president for another 2 weeks and therefore would not be able to issue a presidential pardon.
    4. How did Red evade the Secret Service?
  4. New Martyrs Brigade
    1. What will happen to Blackthorne Kincaid?
    2. Why did Blackthorne Kincaid sell the missile/rocket guidance system to the New Martyrs Brigade? Government contracts are more profitable than what terrorist organizations can afford.
  5. Samar Navabi
    1. Samar’s actions are similar to Worf’s in “Reunion”. Worf is told he must choose between the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets.
    2. Why did Mossad not contact the United States government for help?
      1. A: Mossad is only in the US for intelligence operations, not military operations. If word got out that Israeli military missions were being operated on US soil, it could have severe political implications.
  6. Mossad
    1. Why did the Mossad team throw the grenade?
    2. How much damage have Levi Shur and Samar Navabi done to their careers?
