The Blacklist has centered on Raymond Red Reddington’s sickness for quite a long time. However, it’s jolting for fans if Red would get killed off in The Blacklist Season 8. As you know, filming for The Blacklist Season 8 has already begun where we saw some glimpse of Task Force who was focusing and planning their next move. But, apart from that, recently, Amir Arison has dropped a hint that there’s a possibility that Red could die in The Blacklist Season 8, as his health has now a major concern after Elizabeth Liz Keen betrayed him again. Let’ see how things would change in The Blacklist Season 8.
The last season ended up with so many hiatus ending. In which, Liz finally decided to go with her mother Katarina instead of choosing Red, after Katarina’s revelation. Well, the Task Force was upset with her decision. But, the latest glimpse explained that there’s a different story running behind it. Hopefully, Liz is still on the right side.
The Blacklist Season 8: Amir Arison Teased Some Major Storyline
The Blacklist has been circling on Red’s lousy health for a long time, and it seems that it’s all lead to something more dangerous situation in The Blacklist Season 8. Now, there’s a possibility that the eighth season would uncover the biggest mystery of all time. As for Red, he has a firm aim in the next season, and one of them involves cheating the death. Will he?
Has The Pharmacist Discovered The Cure?
It all started in The Blacklist Season 6 Episode 3, where the situation made it clear that Red’s needed that hour’s Blacklister, The Pharmacist. In which, Dembe followed The Pharmacist to confirm if he’s still working on the project that Red handed him. Later, it revealed The Pharmacist was working on a neurological illness cure, which is quite threatening.
Red Confirmed He’s Dying
In last season, Red finally told Donald Ressler that he’s dying. Further, The Blacklist animated finale dealt with several conflicting stories together. However, the major blow out was when Red collapsed in the last before being revived. As mentioned before, The Blacklist has been swirling around Red’s bad health, and he almost faced a near-death experience in the sixth season.
Further, the show won’t tease such a storyline and plotting such details for so long when they don’t want to see him dead. So, it’s clear that sooner or later in The Blacklist Season 8, we would see a terrible experience that Red would face in his life. Also, Season 8 would be the third season that will center on Red’s illness.
What If Red’s True Identity Will Reveal?
It’s been a long time plotting a story of Red’s illness when his true identity has never been revealed in the show. In the last season, when Katarina Rostova told Liz that Red is an imposter, he’s just living a dual life. Also, his true identity and name are different. So we can expect that this season Katarina would uncover his true identity, as the executive producer teased that Katarina has so many revelations regarding Red. So we can expect that she would either reveal his illness or that she found the cure.
Red’s Running Out Of Lives
Well, it would be the second time when Red would cheat his death if Red survived in The Blacklist Season 8. So, what the show wanted to say that Red has incredible luck that supporting him to cheat his death as many times as he wants. But, there’s still a possibility that Red’s luck had run out now when he sentenced to death.
What Purpose Is Behind Saving Red?
In the last-minute change in the plot, they finally rescued Red. But, now, Red’s health crisis has reached its extreme level. Well, there would be a purpose behind creating such a plot that plays with Red’s health. But, one thing is still confusing when every time they want to save Red, then why they made such a storyline.
Maybe The Show’s Ending
One possible reason could be that the show is ending. Imagine if James Spader wants to leave the show after the eighth season, then there’s a chance that either the show is on its end journey or they would lead it without Red. But, that could be a little creepy as Katarina’s appearance in the last season could point that she would replace Red from the upcoming season.
Creator Teased Red Is Not Going Anywhere
The Blacklist creator Jon Bokenkamp teased that Red would play a major part in The Blacklist Season 8. Jon confirmed that the upcoming season would focus on Red’s dire health condition. Further, before Red could dye, he has Liz to control his crime empire, as he supposed before she betrayed him.
The Blacklist Season 8: When To Expect?
Well, there’s a little amount of time still left to know all the answers. Only three days left to know whether Red would survive in the eighth season, or Katarina would take over him. The Blacklist Season 8 is scheduled to air on Friday on 13 November, at 8 pm on NBC.
