The big question surrounding “The Blacklist” is whether Reddington (James Spader) is Elizabeth Keen’s (Megan Boone) father. It was hinted at that this may be the case in the latest episode of the show, but one of the stars isn’t so sure.
Ryan Eggold, who plays Elizabeth’s husband Tom Keen, was on “Good Day LA” to talk about the show Tuesday (November 12). When asked outright if Red was his TV wife’s dad, Eggold shied away from giving a real answer, saying, “Everybody is saying that. I truthfully don’t know what the writers have concocted for that.”
He does have an opinion though, as he continues, “I would be surprised if he was, but I don’t know.” However, there’s definitely something going on between the two. Red continues “acting as some kind of guardian angel for Megan’s character Liz and we don’t really know why,” Ryan says.
The unanswered questions, even ones about his own character, are part of the fun for Eggold, who says, “That’s the joy of this show, there’s so much mystery. Being in the first half of Season 1, we’re still on the surface of things.”
