‘The Blacklist’ 2016 spoilers tease that Episode 22 “Alexander Kirk,” airing on NBC on Thursday, May 12, will be the beginning of an action-packed Season 3 finale for the prime time drama. This week Raymond Reddington and the FBI task force set out to avenge Elizabeth Keen’s death (although there is still a very real chance she is alive and Megan Boone will return).
Reddington (James Spader) tracked down Susan Hargrave, who confirmed her security company was contracted to kidnap Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) by a man named Alexander Kirk.
The Blacklist 2016 spoilers for Season 3 Episode 22 tease this official synopsis from NBC:
“The FBI task force’s hunt for revenge nears its endgame. As Reddington (James Spader) and the team close in on the mysterious arch-criminal responsible for recent tragic events, they’re forced to operate outside their comfort zone — and outside the law — in order to take down their enemy once and for all.”
It sounds like taking down Alexander Kirk is much easier said than done – but who is this new criminal mastermind responsible for Elizabeth Keen’s death? According to Blacklist 2016 spoilers, Alexander Kirk is Red’s arch nemesis, he and red have a lengthy history and assorted history, and the character will be player by the charming Ulrich Thomsen.
If there ever was someone capable of actually taking down Raymond Reddington … it’s Alexander Kirk.
Now, if Megan Boone’s character Elizabeth Keen is alive – Blacklist fans are hoping to get a sneak peek of her in the two part finale over the course of the next two weeks. If Alexander Kirk is a criminal mastermind and anything like Reddington, then that means it is very possible that he may have faked Elizabeth Keen’s death.
The shootout could have all been a hoax, an easy way to get Elizabeth’s body out of Red’s sight.
But, if Alexander Kirk does have Elizabeth Keen and she is still alive, that brings us to the next obvious question … why? What does he gain by taking Keen, why did he want to kidnap her in the first place without harming her?
Elizabeth Keen’s mother Katarina has been mentioned over and over in Season 3, fans were certain she was behind the kidnapping. But, a new fan theory rising in popularity is that Elizabeth’s father might be the parent that has been alive this whole time – and he is Alexander Kirk. What do you think Blacklist fans, is that a little too far fetched?
So, what do you think Kirk’s beef with Raymond Reddington is? Who will come out on top after the two part finale ends, Red or Kirk? And, do you think Elizabeth Keen is still alive and we’ll see Megan Boone return? Share your thoughts and theories in the comments below
