Raymond reddington wife and daughter
This theory is not a new one, and as stated above, has actually been around for quite some time, albeit existing on the far edges of the fandom. Daniel Cerone, the writer of the now infamous S4E8 episode, released several live tweets that night during the broadcast, that painted a very contradictory scene for me and which ultimately led to this post. At the exact moment that Red told Kirk that Elizabeth was indeed his daughter, Cerone tweeted the following:.

A Raincheck On That Stroganoff — UPDATED 7/1/17: EVIDENCE THAT RED IS NOT THE REAL...
Raymond "Red" Reddington James Spader , a former government agent turned high-profile criminal, who had eluded capture for decades, voluntarily surrenders to the FBI , offering to cooperate on capturing a list of criminals who are virtually impossible to catch. He insists on working with a rookie profiler by the name of Elizabeth Keen Megan Boone.
The pilot episode was written by Jon Bokenkamp and directed by Joe Carnahan. In February , The Blacklist was renewed for a third season,  with Hisham Tawfiq promoted to main cast. Naval Academy graduate, he once worked in US counterintelligence and was being groomed for Admiral when something happened on his way home for the Christmas holidays. It is later revealed that Reddington was accused of committing treason by leaking information to the Soviet Union which led to the death of several American naval officers.
Nicknamed "the concierge of crime", Reddington is known for brokering deals between criminals. He willingly surrenders to the FBI and provides information on a roster of criminals that he refers to as The Blacklist : dangerous criminals who are so careful to avoid leaving any traces behind that the FBI has not even detected their existence.
His ethics are somewhat murky, and he espouses the use of some crimes such as extortion, counterfeiting, torture, and murder in the service of "the greater good". He uses his arrangement with the FBI to pursue his own secret agenda; it was revealed that he needed their help to find Berlin , a mysterious nemesis who had been attacking his organization.
He has an unexplained interest in Elizabeth Keen and knows personal secrets about her that she has never made public. He will stop at nothing to protect her and even went as far as to block her memories of the fire she was trapped in. But she finally regains them and learns that when her father attacked her mother, she killed him while still a child.
Red explains that he never wanted Liz to end up like him and was trying to prevent that. He had a romantic affair with Liz's mother, Katarina Rostova, and it is implied several times that he may be Liz's biological father. No proof of this is ever shown, and Red himself initially denies it when directly confronted by Liz, although he does claim that he knew her father well.
Red is confirmed as Liz's father in "Dr. Adrian Shaw: Conclusion", and in "Mr. Kaplan: Conclusion", he finally acknowledges this to Liz after she presents him with a DNA test confirming his paternity.
In "Dr. Linus Creel", when he confronted Naomi about her, he discovers that Jennifer left her after her marriage to Frank and hasn't tried to make contact since then. After the death of Alan Fitch , Reddington comes into conflict with the Director, the new head of the Cabal. In response, Reddington urgently began seeking the Fulcrum, and managed to collect various items needed to decrypt it.
Finally, after he confessed to Liz that he had initially hired Tom Keen to enter her life and watch over her, she gave him the Fulcrum, after which he was shot by the Director's agents. However, he survived. He continued to throw obstacles into Liz's path as she sought to find out more about her mother. When Liz was framed by the Cabal for the assassination of Senator Hawkins, Reddington countered by gathering 11 of the world's top investigative journalists and giving them the information contained in the Fulcrum.
Accompanied by Liz, Reddington goes on the run to gather various resources needed for his plan to bring down the Director and exonerate Liz. He eventually succeeds in forcing the Cabal to abandon the Director, and then kills him.
However, Red is unable to clear Liz completely of the killing of Tom Connolly and she only returns to the taskforce as an asset like Red himself. He meets with Laurel Hitchin, who suggests he weakened the Cabal so that they would invite him to join it. After watching Liz die in his arms Dembe convinces Red to leave the van containing her body and Ressler places his FBI windbreaker around Red's shoulders and leads him over to the car with Dembe.
As Ressler lets go of Red's arm and Red goes to get into the car he collapses and Dembe catches him saying: "I got you. After being told to stay away from Agnes by Tom in "Cape May", Red goes on a self-imposed exile to get away from everything and find better means to cope with Liz's death. He rescues a woman who attempted suicide one time and takes her back to the abandoned hotel. Only when a man talks to Red at the beach, that he realized the woman he rescued was a ghost and it was she who tells him that he did save her, through channeling his grief in losing Liz.
In "The Artax Network", Red finally visits Dom, the father of Katarina, and while he still blames him for what he done, Dom reluctantly allows Red to stay. When Aram tracks him down to try and convince Red to help them again, he refuses to leave and sends Aram on his way. Dom later convinces Red to leave and honor his word to the FBI, saying that Red's got good people who count on him.
Red later visits Aram and tells him they have work to do. As Kirk goes to kill him, Red whispers something to Kirk that changes his mind and the two men disappear by the time the FBI arrive.
Red later tells Liz that Kirk is "gone" but doesn't elaborate further and doesn't tell her that he's her father.
Red works to meet with the President-Elect to whose campaign he contributed in exchange for his help with the Alexander Kirk situation and is eventually able to secure a Presidential pardon for Liz killing Tom Connolly.
As a result, Liz is able to be reinstated as an FBI agent. When confronting Marvin Gerard for not being at the dinner, he learns that Dembe has left him. In "Dembe Zuma" Red finds out that Dembe left his side to find the traitor in his syndicate. Aram helps him out by procuring one name, Kathryn Nemec, whom Red recognizes as Mr.
When confronting the man who housed her and shot Dembe, Red and Baz discovered he wired a bomb and escaped as he died in his house. In "Requiem", Kaplan calls Red and he confronts her for hiding Liz from him. She tells him she needed to do what she should've done years ago in keeping Liz away from him and mentions that she has just begun her revenge. When Red tries to claim that she helped build his syndicate tight, Kaplan reminds him that she is the one who knows where the bodies of the people he had killed are buried and that she hid them from the FBI over the years, including that of Diane Fowler.
This makes Red worried when Kaplan reveals that they can be used to not only attack his syndicate, but also destroy him from within. In "Mr. Kaplan", many of Red's associates have broken rank and joined Kaplan in her plans for revenge. Red tries to appeal to Kaplan to end the war, but she refused, telling him that Liz needs to know the truth. Kaplan, Conclusion", Red takes Ressler to Hitchin's cleaner, Henry Prescott, to help him find a barrel marked back two years ago.
When they open it, Red tells Ressler that he had just found Reven Wright. With the evidence, he and Ressler appeal to Hitchin for help. When she tried to refuse, Red tells her that unless she wants to be held accountable for both the Task Force's downfall and the murder of Wright, she better uphold her end of the bargain and end the indictment on the Task Force. Red tries to appeal to Kaplan again at the bridge, promising he won't shoot her. He is shocked when she decided to jump to her own death.
Later on, Red is confronted by Liz who tells him that she now knows he's her father. At Tansi Farms, Red and Dembe discover the suitcase buried there is gone and that they must get it back before Liz discovers the truth about how her mother, Katarina Rostova, died. In "Ian Garvey: Conclusion", despite taking Garvey hostage and en route to collecting the skeletal remains of Katarina, Ian rams his sedan into another car, leaving Red and Dembe there as he escapes.
Red later confronts Garvey after learning that the latter now knows that Liz is his daughter. Only then, Jennifer confronts Red for what he's done and the fact that Ian saved her and Naomi's life from their disappointment when they learned of his criminal career.
Red then recognizes her from all the years. Despite Garvey shooting first, Red fires back and shoots him. However, unknown to Red, Liz was conspiring with Ross and Red's daughter Jennifer to learn the truth.
Visited by a hallucination of Tom, Liz reveals what she has learned. The bones in the duffle bag may belong to the real Reddington and the man known as Reddington is possibly an imposter who murdered everyone who tried to reveal the truth to Liz. In "Rassvet", it is revealed that the real Raymond Reddington was killed by Liz as a child, an event she had remembered in "Tom Connoly" and thought was Alexander Kirk.
The imposter's real name is revealed to be Ilya Koslov by Dominic Wilkinson. He is a childhood friend of Katarina Rostova, the love of his life and her occasional lover.
Knowing that the Cabal would work to discredit Reddington and his evidence against them, Ilya took on his identity and became Raymond Reddington to prevent this and protect himself and Katarina. Dom tells Liz that Ilya underwent multiple plastic surgeries over the course of a year to change his appearance to match Reddington's and information from Katarina to fill in the blanks.
After learning the truth, Liz visits him in Hong Kong where Reddington points out that her search cost him his relationship with Dembe and refuses to answer why he continued his masquerade after gaining access to Reddington's money. He later confronts Dom and demands to know exactly what Dom had told Liz, word for word. In "Katarina Rostova," Katarina tells Liz that even she doesn't know who the imposter actually is and Dom lied to Liz about Reddington's true identity.
Elizabeth has a mysterious and traumatic past: her wrist bears a large scar from a fire she was trapped in as a child, and her only memory of her biological father is of him rescuing her from the fire. Reddington admitted to blocking her memories of the fire. She eventually regains her memory of the event when she killed her father to protect her mother. Reddington had been trying to protect her from the knowledge when he blocked her memories. She is the only person with whom Reddington is willing to work.
She has yet to learn why, but he has told her that it has something to do with her missing father. While her adoptive father lay dying in the hospital, he insists to Red that Liz "deserves to know", but his death is hastened by Red to prevent Liz from "knowing". She develops a bond with Reddington as they continue to work together. The Director indicates there is a close personal connection between Liz and Red, but refuses to tell her what it is.
Her once-idyllic marriage to Tom Keen unraveled as she discovered evidence that he was not the man he appeared to be. After she found out he was an agent hired by Berlin to keep her under surveillance, she had the marriage annulled. She kept Tom imprisoned on an abandoned ship for several months, interrogating him. Eventually, she was forced to let him go in exchange for Berlin's location after he murdered a harbormaster, Eugene Ames. Local police investigated Ames' murder and had enough evidence to arrest Liz for her involvement; but she was saved by the intervention of Reddington, Cooper, then-assistant AG Connolly, and Tom himself.
She also learned that she was the key to unlocking the mysteries of the Fulcrum, and that she had unknowingly had the Fulcrum itself in her possession since childhood. With the help of Leonard Caul, she deciphered the Fulcrum's contents and confronted the Director with them.
She was then unknowingly infected with a customized biological weapon by the Cabal and tricked into infecting their target, Senator Hawkins. The Cabal then framed her for Hawkins's assassination and for being a Russian spy. After shooting Tom Connolly upon learning of his involvement with the faking of Cooper's cancer and the Cabal's sinister intentions for the other agents on the task force, Elizabeth is now a fugitive on the FBI's Most Wanted List.
To evade capture by the FBI, she sought asylum at the Russian embassy, identifying herself as "Masha Rostova" and pretending to be a Russian spy.
Naomi was married to Red before he became a criminal, during which time they had a daughter, Jennifer Reddington. Many years later, she married Frank Hyland. She was revealed to be the true target of Lord Baltimore.

‘The Blacklist’ EP Jon Bokenkamp on Season 6 and Exploring Red’s True Identity
Carla AKA Naomi is a fascinating character. The character that can shed more light on Reddignton was presented briefly as Berlin abducted her to slowly dismember her in retribution for his notion that Reddington had killed his daughter. Then she, with cheating husband Frank are spirited away with a new identity. Her birth year as Naomi is Do you know any woman who would accept a birth year 2 years older? I think one had to be desperate or that was the real birth year to begin with, if Carla was not her original identity, which I do not think it was. Then there is the bone thing. Using a chicken bone as a weapon, not just as a weapon, inside the nose, with precision, making believe she had escaped. Or at the vey least that Carla has some training as an operative or agent. That would be the immediate, apparent conclusion.
How Reddington Being Behind Bars Affects ‘The Blacklist’ Season 6
This is it. This is the key line in this episode. A line that helps unlock the puzzle that is The Blacklist. So here is my current theory, that I believe many others share:.
Jennifer was mentioned at the end when Red demanded Naomi tell him where she is. Naomi mentions that she and Jennifer lost contact after she remarried. Jennifer is introduced as a bartender living under an assumed name Lilly May Roth whom Garvey visits.
While searching for the answers that will uncover the secrets that Reddington has gone to great lengths to keep buried, at the same time, Liz and the FBI are still on the hunt for some of the most strange and dangerous criminals yet. Collider: We spoke before the launch of Season 5, which definitely felt like a new chapter for the series, but here we again and Season 6 really feels like things are getting shaken up quite dramatically. It continues to evolve and shift. It shifts our whole season in prison.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: LIz finds out Raymond Reddington is an Imposter _Blacklist 05X22 (Season Finale)
By Amber Dowling. Heading into the rest of the season, that arrest continues to affect not only the task force, but also the relationship between Red and Keen, as the former launches an investigation into who turned him in. Very early this season. This is a guy that always has a contingency plan. Does he have one here or was that attempted bribe it? That bribe was it.
But fair warning: there are spoilers ahead! Her first big break on television was on The West Wing , where she spent 23 episodes as political operative Amy Gardner. She is probably best known for her starring role in the Showtime dark comedy Weeds. Carla and Raymond were married before Red began his life of crime. After she has her marriage to Reddington annulled, Naomi starts a new life in Philadelphia with her daughter. During their marriage, Naomi and Reddington had one child — a daughter named Jennifer.
