‘The Blacklist’: Alexander Kirk Not Liz’s Father; Red Cannot Work With Her After Betrayal?
When The Blacklist season 4 returns on Thursday, the truth about Liz Keen (Megan Boone) will be out. In fact, she had lied about her death.Advertisement
Liz was abducted by Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen) and it was known in The Blacklist Season 3 finale that she is the daughter of the former KGB agent Constantin Rostov. Liz’s parents Constantine and Katarina Rostova (Lotte Verbeek) have been an enigma for her as well as for viewers.
Raymond or Red Reddington (James Spader) was said to be Liz’s real dad at one point in time. It was reported that he was working for the Cabal; Red killed her father and promised to look after her.

However, another website says a different story. Constantine and Katarina got into a fight when Liz was four, and in order to protect her mom, Liz killed her dad.
Constantine apparently survived the shooting and later adopted the alias “Alexander Kirk.” Alexander and Red don’t see eye to eye and have a personal history.
Liz’s FBI colleagues feel betrayed
Kirk offers enough proof that he is Liz’s father. It will be very tough for Liz to talk to her colleagues back at the FBI. They all will feel betrayed, and many will come “forward and support Liz,” Entertainment Weekly reports.
Besides, people who viewers may think to be “most caring and supportive may feel the deepest betrayed,” TV Guide reports. Red will be devastated with the news, but only two things matter to him – finding Elizabeth and finding her child.
The mid-season premiere of The Blacklist will focus on Elizabeth’s husband or her baby daddy Tom (Ryan Eggold). The series creator Jon Bokenkamp said that the time jump is not much.
“We felt like there was too much good conflict to skip over and jump ahead. And so, we pick up literally right in the moment where Season 3 left off. All of these characters are dispersed into strange and desperate situations, and we dive right back into it headfirst,” he said.
Bokenkamp added that The Blacklist Season 4 will be “a real rollercoaster coming, and it’s gonna be a blast.” The Blacklist Season 4, premiers Thursday at 10/9c on NBC.
