Milos Kirchoff was a character in NBC's Blacklist.

BackgroundEdit

By his own account in "Berlin Conclusion", Kirchoff started out in the Red Army, rose to the rank of Colonel and later became a member of the KGB. Notorious for sending his enemies to the gulags in Siberia, he was a loyal servant of the Soviet Union. In 1991, near the end of the Cold War, Kirchoff took part in a meeting in Kursk wih other Soviet officials on how to combat their more progressive countrymen who wanted the Soviet Union dissolved. The meeting was interupted when a bomb went off, killing 15 attendants and the last of the old Soviet resistance. The act was done by Kiryl Morozov, a KGB operative, on the orders of Alan Fitch, known as "the Decembrist", but Reddington was blamed. Shortly after that, Kirchoff's daughter was suspected of falling in love with a dissident and imprisoned. He used his connections to help her escape, but the Kremlin found out and decided to use him as an example to the Motherland.

He was put in a Siberian gulag where a lot of people he had put away were imprisoned. One day, he was sent a pocket watch he had given his daughter. Over several months, he was sent several body parts and was led to believe that they were hers and that Reddington was behind it. In reality, Fitch sent body parts belonging to someone else and helped Kirchoff's daughter escape to the United States and change her identity. Eventually, Kirchoff sharpened one of the bones he had been sent into a weapon, killed the people holding him captive and escaped and formed his criminal syndicate under the alias "Berlin".

Season 1Edit

"Milton Bobbit"Edit

Kirchoff is first named (though by his alias) when Red, Liz, and Dembe interrogate Craig Keen, Tom Keen's false brother. After hearing Tom state on the speakerphone that he is accountable to "Berlin" concerning failure, Red asks Craig if the bank is in Berlin, Germany. When he refuses to answer, Red orders Dembe to take him to the car, but before they can leave with him, he jumps out of a window.

"Berlin"Edit

He is first seen in the episode on a plane.

"Berlin Conclusion"Edit

He changed clothes with the deceased prison guard and cut off his own left hand since it was tattooed and it could be used to identify him. After the plane crash, he was taken to a hospital to receive medical care. When agents Keen and Ressler come to question him, they believe him to be the surviving prison guard. He tells them his story, but doesn't let them know his true identity.

When he is last seen, he has had his missing hand replaced with a prosthetic hand.

Season 2Edit

"Lord Baltimore"Edit

He hires Lord Baltimore to capture Reddington's ex-wife Naomi so he can use her as revenge against Reddington. He sends Reddington one of her fingers and threatens to send Naomi back to him piece by piece, just like Reddington did with Milos's daughter.

"Monarch Douglas Bank"Edit

He agrees to get his money that was stolen from him in exchange that Reddington gets Naomi back from him unharmed.

The ScimitarEdit

Red meets with Milos Kirchoff again. Milos Kirchoff once more blames him for his daughter's death and intends to hurt Red by going after Zoe, whom he assumes is Red's daughter. Red reveals that Milos Kirchoff's daughter Zoe is actually alive and someone else in Milos Kirchoff's syndicate had lied to him about her being killed. He is soon reunited with his daughter, who had been living under an assumed name as Zoe D'Antonio.

The DecembristEdit

After being reunited with Zoe, Milos learned the truth of Red's innocence. He kills Kiryl Morozov after learning of Fitch's orders to frame Red and use Milos as a pawn. He was furious with Alan Fitch for lying to him about her death and takes action. Milos orders his agents to abduct Fitch and strap a pipe bomb on him, intending to kill him. Using Zoe to gain the access numbers to free Fitch, Red holds Milos at gunpoint. Red returns to the warehouse where he is holding Milos prisoner with a bottle of vodka and places 2 shot glasses in front of Milos. After they reminisce about the Cold War and finish the bottle, Red kills Milos.

Season 4Edit

"Dr. Bogdan Krilov"Edit

Milos's body is found.

Unanswered QuestionsEdit

  1. Considering what Milos Kirchoff has done, why is he only number 8 on the Blacklist? What have numbers 1-7 done to justify getting ranked higher than him?
    1. A: The Blacklist is not numbered by importance or threat level. Unlike the Most-wanted Iraqi playing cards, Red is certainly using a different set of standards for his personal list.
  2. Why does Milos Kirchoff have a vendetta against Red? The actions taken so far seem to be a combination of Anslo Garrick and "The Count of Monte Cristo".
    1. A: We're about to find out more and what eventually lead to Milos Kirchoff attacking Red's family back in 1990.
    2. A: Milos Kirchoff blamed Red for presumably murdering his daughter. However in "The Front", it was revealed she was alive under an assumed name, Zoe D'Antonio, and Red was watching her from a distance. He later brings Zoe to Milos Kirchoff in "The Scimitar".
  3. Assuming the story Milos Kirchoff told in the hospital is true, why did he tell the story of his background?
  4. The girl in Milos Kirchoff's watch is his daughter whose body was possibly disposed of by Stanley R. Kornish. She is the same woman in picture #79 that whose body Kornish disposed of. Reddington knew this, and took her picture. If he doesn't know Milos Kirchoff, what's his connection to Milos Kirchoff's daughter?  What is their connection?
    1. Q: Could Red be the "dissident" that the daughter fell in love with?
      1. A: Unlikely, Red could've have saved his wife from being killed off by Kornish, years ago.
    2. Q: Why would Red be involved in a dissident movement in the Soviet Union?
    3. A: The amount of money made by some individuals during the break-up of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics meant that all international criminals were involved in the machinations that occurred.
    4. A: Red could have been involved with his daughter while he was in the navy.
  5. How old is Milos Kirchoff? His backstory seems to indicate he is a lot older than he looks.
  6. The picture Red takes from the Stewmaker shows a date in 1990 but when Milos Kirchoff tells his prison story with the watch and the various body parts sent he says 1991. Why does the picture pre-date the Milos Kirchoff in prison?
    1. A: Presumably Kirchoff thought that he had hidden his daughter (or lost contact with her) when in fact she had been delivered to the Stewmaker by Alan Fitch.
