The secret we’ve been waiting for spills out in the season finale last night on The Blacklist.
It was long awaited, and needed to happen. We needed to know what the secrecy was surrounding Elizabeth Keen.
However, what I still don’t know: how exactly does Reddington fit into the life she came from? What do you think?
We have seen little peeks into what possibly might have happened to Lizzie as a child. We know that Red was protecting that from her at all costs.
We saw how it all came crumbling down for Liz last night in the season finale. Where Ressler, her comrade and friend, will end up being the person who will chase her as a “criminal.”
Her boss learns that he was never sick at all. He was being used. The Harold we know, the hard-nosed, follow-by-the-book man, changes before our eyes.
Tom and Liz have unfinished business. They still have love for one another. Part of her yearns to just go away with him on his boat and start a new life together.
But both Tom and she know that she can’t do that. She would be running for the rest of her life.
But maybe she will be anyway. If the Kabal has their way.
She ends up with her wanted poster right next to Reddingtons. They are not so very different.
Though, in the final emotional scenes, which I looked for hours for photos of and couldn’t find, he told her he never wanted her to be like him.
He tells Dembe goodbye, and that means Reddington is planning on going away. And taking Liz with him, to keep her out of the clutches of those who wish to blackmail her.
Instead of running away with Tom, she ends up running away with Reddington, who she realizes is not the monster she once thought he was.
Because she remembers.
When she shoots Tom Connolly, a memory flashes in front of her. And the scene from her childhood plays out in front of her.
She remembers all of it. She knows why Reddington was protecting her. And she will never be the same.
I’m not going to tell what it is that she remembers. You can watch the season finale in the link below.
What do you think Season 3 holds for us?
