The Blacklist - my prediction

I admit I’m on the fence about the TV show, The Blacklist. On one hand, I absolutely LOVE James Spader. He has such a presence on screen that’s really exciting to watch.

On the other hand, the writers have a lot of little things that bother me, some “too stupid to live” moments. Every so often I’ll get so disgusted that I threaten to Captain Caffeine that I’m going to stop watching it … and then the show has some neat twist and I want to keep watching. So like an idiot, I keep watching.

There was a prediction I made at the end of Season 1, but Captain Caffeine said I should blog about it and put it out there. So here goes.

The man everyone thinks is Red Reddington is not Red Reddington. Let’s call him Mr. X. He’s Lizzie’s father.

The story about the real Red Reddington was that he was an officer who suddenly disappeared one day, then turned up 4 years later as a criminal.

The real Red Reddington died or was killed. Mr. X assumed Red’s identity and resurfaced 4 years after the disappearance, pursuing his criminal activities. There was a man in the Blacklist who could alter DNA—he did that for Mr. X to give him Red’s DNA. There was also a plastic surgeon in an episode that the fake Red mentioned he’d used, but he didn’t mention anything else about him—the surgeon gave Mr. X Red Reddington’s face.

Mr. X was at Lizzie’s house during the fire, but he was the man on the floor, her father.

In a season finale, Lizzie asked him if he was her father, and he said no. It was partially true—he is now Red Reddington, who is not her father.

So there’s my prediction. Mr. X is Lizzie’s father. What do you think?


  1. I have been trying to figure this out for 2 seasons now and now after reading your blog post I think you have done it for me! Great breakdown of why you might be right. Everything you have hit on was right there in front of our eyes. Good for you. Can't wait to see if you are right!

    1. Hahaha I would be surprised if I were right, but I wanted it out there just in case!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
