The Blacklist is set to return this Autumn, with so many questions left unanswered will season 2 fill in the gaps ?

James Spader the actor behind the mysterious Raymnd Reddington spoke to the press yesterday ( 15th September), about the fourth coming series of The Blacklist, giving us a little look into how the story line will develop.

Season 1 saw the final season with Red revealing burns to his back, which has led viewer further in to believe that he is in fact Liz father.

TV Line reported the following

“That story has not been extrapolated on,” says Spader, who was filming Episode 4 when he spoke with reporters. “That’s something to just let percolate for a bit. Elizabeth Keen has spoken of a memory of being in a fire when she was a child, and somebody pulled her out of that fire. She may be assuming that it’s her father, but we’ve never said whether it’s her father or not.”

In fact, Spader — who has previously said it would be “too easy” if Red were Liz’s biological father — thinks viewers will be putting those daddy issues on the back burner as Season 2 gets underway.
James Spader on The Blacklist “If the route is circuitous enough, the destination becomes less and less important,” the actor explains. “I wonder whether that will continue to be the most important question that people ask as the show goes on, or whether the more immediate relationships and the nature of those relationships will eventually become more compelling. Given our show and what our show is, I don’t think anything is as simple as it appears.”
When Spaders spoke about how Reds relationship had moved forward with the FBI.  he explained how it has shifted when the show picks up, given that his task force essentially fell to pieces in the season finale.
“The protocol for how Red operates changes dramatically,” Spader says. “He just has to conduct his relations with the FBI in a very different manner, considering the events of last year. He’s the same person, but the circumstances that he’s putting himself into are certainly different from what has preceded it.”

And even though the real Berlin eluded Red in the freshman finale, Spader promises that Red will come face-to-face with Peter Stormare’s baddie soon into Season 2.
As for what the duo’s dynamic will be upon meeting each other in person, Spader would only say, after a long pause: “Cautious.”

The Blacklist is set to return in the US on NBC at 9pm Monday 22nd September, with SKy Living in the UK set to premier Season 2 on 3rd October 9pm.
