Without Raymond Reddington and Liz Keen, there really is no “Blacklist” at all. Therefore, you have to believe that it only makes sense that the show’s writers and producers could want to stretch out the show’s central conflict for as long as possible. They want things, after all, to remain interesting, and this is one of the best ways that they can make this happen.
Speaking in a new interview with E! News, Megan Boone suggests that while you are going to at least get a few answers as to what is going on with Reddington and Liz Keen this season, you may still be waiting for a little while before everything is made completely clear:
“That’s the central relationship in the show, so the whole entire series is going to be about unraveling that mystery and there are different stages of that unraveling … It’s not a question that can be answered in one simple yes or no.”
You can expect at least a few answers by the end of the season with this, but you know how these sort of shows go: You want to give the audience something to satisfy them, but hen leave them hanging by just enough of a thread that there can still be some sort of mystery moving forward.
Boone also suggested in the interview that if you are intrigued by the Liz / Tom relationship, there will be some great stuff for the two of them in the episodes coming up immediately.
