Most if not all of the blacklisters are connected. At first it was believed that they were all somehow connected to Berlin. However, while some of them were connected to Berlin, Berlin was not the true enemy behind the blacklist. The Cabal, or the mysterious organization that wants Reddington eliminated, seems to be the true enemy. After Reddington won his war with the Cabal however, the blacklisters start being connected to various people connected to Elizabeth's past as Masha Rostova.

This page is meant to show how the blacklisters are connected to Reddington’s war against the Cabal and various other players. All of the blacklisters are connected to the wars since Reddington needs to continue giving up names to the FBI to stay under their protection. However some blacklisters are more involved in the conflicts than others.

The GamblerEdit

  • Leon Kiklinski A.K.A. The Lobbyist (No. 148) - hired by the Gambler to frame the FBI for the “assassination” of Ryan Dupont, an activist that spoke out against the police and other attacks against the FBI.
  • John X (No. 192) - hired by the Gambler to rescue Leon Kiklinksi and to kill him if he failed a bet, which he did. The Gambler then tasked him with hunting down the Reddington Taskforce and Reddington himself.
