There's something about this season of The Blacklist that makes us crave answers... even more than we usually do.
Maybe it's the addition of Laila Robins as Katarina Rostova that suggests more on Red's past, and maybe, just maybe, the full story of that past, is forthcoming?
Or maybe it's because last season's answers (Red is Ilya Koslov, post extensive facial reconstructive surgery? Liz is finally to let go of the past? Really?) left something to be desired.
Either way, we want more, and we want it now, dammit.
And while Season 7 is actually shaping up to deliver more on Red and Katarina's past, there are some questions that are proving to be bigger head scratchers than others right now.
What Happened in Belgrade?
Something monumental, in Katarina’s estimation. It was here in this Serbian city that she lost everything she cared about, with Red being the one who blew it all up.
We’re heard The Blacklist namedrop cities in the past (notably Kuwait, and Red’s connection to Harold), but not much about Belgrade thus far.
Last season, Dembe notably commented that he didn’t think Elizabeth will “ever be ready to learn about what [Red] did to Katarina”.
With season 7 opening up more and more of Red’s past, we may finally get to definitively understand what happened, and know if it’s related in any way to the night of the fire in which Liz shot and killed the real Raymond Reddington.
