‘The Blacklist’ season 4 spoilers: On villains, Alexander Kirk, and perception

The Blacklist logo any seasonIs Alexander Kirk truly the Big Bad of “The Blacklist” moving forward into the fourth season? After watching the end of season 3, we feel like it is ultimately very difficult to have any other perception. Just look at what happened! While we learned that Liz Keen was still alive, in the final episode she was captured by Alexander Kirk, a man claiming to have a deep-seeded knowledge of her to the point where he actually proclaims himself to be her father.

We unfortunately cannot tell you at present whether or not this claim is true; however, we can proclaim that there are many questions concerning this man, including whether or not he is the next Big Bad. Luckily, executive producer John Eisendrath was at least kind enough to offer up the following statement to Entertainment Weekly:

“[The status as Kirk as a villain] is definitely a cliffhanger for next year … It’s definitely an, ‘Oh my God, who really is this person, what’s his agenda and what is going to happen to Liz?’ We’re left with Red and everyone aware of the fact that Liz is alive, and she’s also been abducted.”

Given the sort of tease that we were left off with concerning Liz, it is really hard to imagine the show starting up this season in a way that is anything other than epic. We’re fine with Kirk remaining a huge villain for some time, provided of course that he manages to be telling the truth concerning his tie to Liz. Otherwise, the whole reveal of this storyline is going to be somewhat deflating.

The new season of the show will premiere on NBC later this fall, so we will have some further updates about it then.
