Re: The Blacklist

The fact that Lizzie has not had a DNA test done is beyond silly, this is not the 1950's. Get a dna sample from Red somehow (hell, he has bleed enough this season) and find out if he is her dad.

I agree, this should have happened ages ago, but possible explanations for this are:

1. Red has covered it up by having test results faked (didn't someone mention at some point recently that in the early days of working together a DNA test was indeed done?)
2. Whoever is in charge of the black site operations (above Cooper) knows the truth but has covered it up for some reason
3. Red really isn't her father and the early test showed that so no one has looked into it further
4. Lizzie has not done the test herself because she is a) an oblivious idiot, and/or b) she grapples with serious denial issues (look how long it took her to come to terms with her husband's identity), and is afraid to know the truth

But still, I would have the test done again on my own. But that's not to say that Red wouldn't find out and interfere with the results.

Apparenlty these days you can buy mail-a-way paternity tests at the drug store. If Law&Order:SVU is to be believed.

Re: The Blacklist

One thing I wonder about (if Red is the father) is the rest of the family. Does anyone remember a mention of a wife or possible siblings?

Re: The Blacklist

We're told in the first episode that Red walked out on his wife and daughter - singular.

Then there is the story from Red about how his car broke down full of christmas presents and he walked home. Something happened and when he got home, there was blood everywhere. He never answered the question about whether that was true.

Only time they are mentioned that I can recall.

I just checked in episode one what was said - as agent wrestler was briefing on reddington a few things come up. Reddington was on his way home for christmas. They show a photo of a car covered in snow. Sounds like the story is true.

I think he is her father. Their will be a whole story around how and why etc etc, but at the end... he'll be her father.

No, remember Red is not sure what went on at (what we assume is) his house. What he saw of the aftermath was so upsetting to him that he burned down the house.
Damn how did I miss this - or is this just assumed re: the blood in the house? Red freaked and burned it down? Didn't realise his daughter was still alive, almost killed her then out of guilt gave her to his best mate?

One show had Lizzie as child looking at a bunch of flames. But the burning down of the house Red did was in the series, current day. Some place around episode 4. I don't know if the fire department saved the original house or if it was rebuilt, but it seemed like Red waited all these years for the house to be for sale so he could buy it and burn it down.

Edit: actually it was episode 7 Frederick Barnes.

Re: The Blacklist

i didn't really follow the show but just saw the season finale...Peter Stomare & ALan Alda piqued my interested.

OK....so am i right in thinking that Lizzie is NOT Red's daughter.... though maybe he sees her a substitute? And what was really up with Berlin? Is HE Lizzie's dad?

Lizzie being Red's daughter is too obvious, so being a network TV show they could easily go there. Although you would think the FBI would've already performed a DNA test as soon as Red requests to work with some nobody agent who happens to be adopted and doesn't know who her biological father is.

It's possible Red is looking after her as a debt to her biological father who he either killed or failed to save. Or she's the daughter of whoever is No. 1 on his blacklist.

Re: The Blacklist

I think that she's a substitute for his own dead daughter. No biological connection whatsoever (that would be painfully obvious). She represents the innocent life that he lost and can never have again.
