The Blacklist Season 7: When will Liz finally learn the truth about Red being her father? What secret does Katarina want from Red?
Liz (Megan Boone) has been lied to and tricked by the people closest to her, all her life, but when 'The Blacklist' returns with Season 7, we hope she gets some truths instead. We know that Red (James Spader), the man whom Liz looks to as a father figure, is actually her biological father, and he has now been kidnapped by Katarina (Lotte Verbeek) and is being tortured for some specific information.
When the season premieres, we will see Liz working with Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) and the rest of the special agents at the FBI to find her father. She is yet to find out that Katarina is the one behind the kidnapping, but she will find out soon enough, and it remains to be seen how she will react to the news. Despite being portrayed in her memories as an affable woman, Liz will have to come to terms with the fact that her mother is back in her life with seemingly murderous vengeance.
In the trailer for the upcoming season, Katarina reveals that she has been hunted and chased into the shadows in the past, but she is now done hiding. She claims to know a little something about pain, and we certainly believe her based on the torture plan she seems to have created for Red. By the end of the ordeal — hate it as she may — she promises Red that she will have the information she is after.
We are yet to find out what this information is, but our best guess is it would be whatever Red whispered into her late husband Constatine's ears back in the day — the very information that made Constantine change his mind about killing Red.
Meanwhile, we will also see Liz hopefully learning the truth about her father — specifically the fact that Red is, in fact, her father. While it was revealed that he is an impostor who had the real Reddington killed and kept his bones in a suitcase, some fan theories suggest that he may very well be the real Reddington, and we are excited about the big reveal.
Don't forget to watch Season 7 Episode 1 of 'The Blacklist' which premieres on October 4, Friday, to find out just exactly how Katarina and Liz find what they are looking for.
