‘The Blacklist’ season 2 spoilers: The story of Liz Keen, her mom, and her past

The Blacklist logo any seasonFor those of you who are fans of “The Blacklist” and have long demanded answers on Liz Keen’s past, we are starting to get just a little bit closer to finally getting some answers on the subject.

Specifically, we are talking more about getting to see more of her mother, and learning about how Reddington is connected to her in par through that. Will we figure out whether or not he is her father this season? We cannot say that one way or another; while we feel it is unlikely, this may be a secret that the show still dangles until its last breath. We’d say more about this storyline right now, but we figure that it would instead be more useful to just share what executive producer Jon Bokenkamp had to say on the subject recently per Entertainment Weekly:

“The storyline about the woman who she has found in this photograph, who Red has confirmed is her mother, takes us not only forward in terms of who Liz is, but it’s going to take us back to the night of the fire, to what happened in this period of time that has somehow been lifted or erased from her memory somehow … We are, in the last few episodes, going to be going back to that critical night in which so much of the story has its roots. Yes, we’re going to have a big discovery. The storyline of Liz and her mother and how she’s connected to Red is going to be at the heart of our finale.”

We are almost certainly at a point now when “The Blacklist” does need to offer up some more information. After all, the ratings hit a new series low Thursday night, and the messiness of the season has to be one reason why.

What do you want to see with Liz moving into the end of “The Blacklist” season 2? Let us know with a comment.
