Unanswered QuestionsEdit

  1. Post Office
    1. The task force censured Ayers for his tactics of "A hundred die so that a thousand may live." However, their actions qualify as "aiding Raymond Reddington's syndicate so that The Blacklist may perish".
      1. A: Ayers' victims were seen as innocent and included children. The blacklisters and non-blacklisters that Red has killed on the other hand are international criminals, or mass murders, and they put innocent lives at risk.
      2. Q: Red is using the task force to destroy his rivals. Because of the FBI, Red's enemies are deceased and/or ruined. Red has increased the power of his syndicate and his control over the United States government. When combined with the Artax Network, the Cabal, and the destruction of Milos Kirchoff's syndicate; Red can shatter his enemies.
  2. Elizabeth Keen
    1. Why did Keen lie to Red and state that Rostov had not communicated with her?
      1. A: It could have been for 2 reasons. One is that she feared Red would trace the feed. Another is that she was going along with her plan of trusting Rostov even when she is not communicating with him.
    2. Keen said “that’s our guy” after seeing Ayers in the surveillance recording. Why was she so certain?
    3. Keen’s life is starting to resemble the “Star Wars” universe.
      1. Elizabeth Keen (Luke Skywalker)/(Leia Organa Solo)
        1. Central character, rises from obscure background
        2. Loses family because of war (black market rivalries)
      2. Katarina Rostova (Padmé Amidala)
        1. Dead mother whose death was caused by the father
      3. Constantin Rostov (Anakin Skywalker)
        1. Father on enemy side, knows mentor at personal level, seeks to reunite family
      4. Agnes Rostov/Keen (Ben Skywalker)
        1. Has antidote for disease
      5. Tom Keen (Mara Jade Skywalker)/(Han Solo)
        1. Enemy agent who defects to opposing side
      6. Raymond Reddington (Obi-Wan Kenobi)
        1. Unreliable mentor, knows enemy at personal level
      7. Post Office (Alliance to Restore the Republic)
        1. Larger organization, operates in legal and illegal gray/grey areas
      8. The numerous adoptions, interlinked bloodlines, and family revelations.
  3. Raymond Reddington
    1. Why does Red have no other trackers than Glen Carter? Glen enjoys annoying Red.
    2. Have Red and Sebastian Reifler met before? Sebastian Reifler knew Red on sight.
    3. How did Red know that Sebastian Reifler was treating Rostov?
    4. How did Red know so much about Owen's son and so little about Owen and his wife? Red knew that Owen's son was sick and being treated by Rostov's doctor. Red seemingly did not know Owen's real name or anything about his personal life. If Red knew about Owen's son, he could have had the FBI or Glen find the boy, which would have led him to Owen and Sebastian Reifler faster.
  4. Owen Ayers
    1. Why did Ayers think that a nuclear meltdown would alter government policy? Nuclear power and petroleum are still used despite oil spills and nuclear meltdowns.
    2. The inspector in the convenience store was right. Health dangers are prevalent in nearly everything. Focusing on the energy industry ignores other health dangers.
    3. Why did the helicopter explode?
    4. Why did Owen warn Maya? She was equally guilty of not caring about the dangers of nuclear power.
  5. Constantin Rostov
    1. How did Rostov locate Keen’s computer?
  6. Samar Navabi
    1. Why did Navabi say that Aram made the “wrong call”? She knows he is not a field agent.
    2. Navabi was right about the Post Office. Loyalty is shaky and emotional wounds are prevalent.
    3. Why is Samar not returning to Mossad?
  7. Donald Ressler
    1. How did Ressler know of Aram’s girlfriend?
  8. Aram Mojtabai
    1. When was Aram’s first kill?
      1. A: He killed a member of Anslo Garrick's Wild Bunch.
    2. Why did Aram not consider the option of shutting down the rotor mechanism?
  9. Dembe Zuma
    1. How does Dembe know about bowling?
  10. Kathryn Nemec
    1. Why was Nemec chained to the bed?

Slanders on the FBI, Police, and OSHAEdit

  1. Why did the FBI state the wrong information about the supermoon?
  2. The police roadblock was easily broken by a ramming attack.
  3. Why did the original Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigation miss the importance of the spot inspector?
