James Spader Appreciation Week: Day 2- Favorite Character: Raymond Red ReddingtonNot only is Red my.
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.
In "Marvin Gerard", as Liz is being escorted to the airport, the convoy is attacked by Ressler and forcing Liz to run on foot.
At a diner, she confronts Red for preventing her asylum until she learns he did this to save her life from being killed by the Cabal.
While holding everyone in the diner hostage, Liz attacks an abusive boyfriend of one of the hostages' and nearly kills him until Red stops her.
In "Eli Matchett", Liz comes to the realization that even if her name is cleared, it's impossible for her to go back to the life she once knew and must rely on Red to help her survive as a criminal.
In "Kings of the Highway", Liz tracks down Reddington after he is kidnapped and ransoms him using a valuable object that Dembe claims is needed to clear her name.
In "The Director", Liz is locked in the task force's cell as Ressler tries to protect her until she can testify. The Director and Laurel Hitchin attempt to prevent this by transferring Liz to an undisclosed location due to her supposedly having terrorist connections and then suffocating her when Aram changes the box's door code.
Liz is nearly transferred, but the White House Counsel is able to prevent it and Ressler returns to transfer her to the courthouse.
In "The Director: Conclusion", Liz spends the night in a cell protected by Ressler which keeps the Cabal from reaching her, but Laurel plots to have her assassinated as she's moved.
Liz is later taken before a judge where she faces multiple charges that each come with a death sentence, including sixteen counts of murder.
Laurel tries to have Liz assassinated, but is forced to call off her attempt by Red who captures the Director and threatens to turn him over to the World Court.
In that case, Liz had to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and would get three years' probation.
Though she would be free, Liz could never return to the FBI. Liz reluctantly took the deal in the end as Red ensured she'd remain part of the task force as an asset like him.
Liz was publicly exonerated by Laurel while Karakurt was taken into custody and exposed as the man who had committed the terrorist acts Liz had been framed for.
That night, Liz emerges from the courthouse a free woman and hugs Red who is waiting for her. Liz has difficulty adjusting to no longer being an FBI agent.
After being beaten up by a man who thought she was a traitor, she is hospitalized and discovers she is pregnant.
She accepts Tom's marriage proposal, hoping to start a family with him. Liz and Tom's wedding ceremony is interrupted by Mr.
Solomon, who pursues them relentlessly. Liz is injured during the chase, forcing Reddington's doctor to perform an emergency C-section to save her baby.
Liz dies due to complications with the C-section and the inability to reach a hospital on time: Matias Solomon blocks the vehicle containing Liz from continuing on to the hospital and Liz dies with Reddington holding her hand.
Red is shown to be completely devastated by her death, as is the rest of the task force, and Tom is left to raise their daughter, Agnes, alone.
In "Cape May" Red tells of a time he had to make a Hobson's choice: to save a child and lose her mother or lose both, saying it was the hardest choice he made by far in his life.
In "Alexander Kirk: Conclusion", Liz is revealed to be alive, her death having been faked by Kaplan to protect her and Agnes. Tied to a chair, Liz meets with Kirk who reveals he is in fact her father.
In "Esteban" Liz doesn't believe Kirk and demands to know what he's planning to do with her, Tom and Agnes.
Kirk claims that her daughter will be fine and that he just needs to get rid of the rat. Kirk plans to take her back to the house she grew up in so she can see the truth for herself.
In "Mato" Liz gets a clue from her past when she saw her mother, Katarina, putting a few toys and a ribbon bracelet in a coffee can used as a time machine.
Liz digs the can up and discovers some truth in Kirk's words. In "Miles McGrath", Liz reads through her mother's journal and comes up to an important clue involving a rare cancer plaguing the males of the Rostov family.
It was only then Red reveals the truth in Kirk's plans to use Liz for a blood transfusion as her blood contains vital blood cells needed to help him replenish his own and without her, he will keep Agnes hostage.
He does give her back to Liz that leads to his arrest. Adrian Shaw", Kirk is taken to the hospital and believing she may be his only chance of rescuing him, goes through a DNA Test.
If she is found to be a match, they will prepare her for surgery and do a blood transfusion. When Tom found out, he confronted Liz for the decision and admitted that he had met his mother, Susan, months earlier.
Despite his warning not to get close to Kirk, Liz mentioned that she needs to help him as he may provide the answers to who she is. While being prepped for surgery, a doctor tells her that the DNA test results between her and Kirk came back and they're not a match.
Believing Red had sent false transcripts of the DNA test, she calls him to confront him only to discover that Kirk had lied to her the whole time and the DNA transcript that Tom gave her was falsified.
Angered by this, Liz confronts Kirk for lying to her and abandons him. Yes, Elizabeth is my daughter. Bogdan Krilov", Liz and Samar are sent to confront Dr.
Krilov and discover Kaplan's plan to use Ressler to kill Hitchin as she is Red's only link to the Cabal under false pretenses. Liz discovers the truth about Kaplan being her former nanny whom she used to call as Katya and she begs Liz to end her relationship with Red before it's too late.
Despite stopping Ressler from making a big mistake, Liz confronts Hitchin and tells her they will investigate in Reven Wright's disappearance.
She refuses to cooperate and suspects he has an ulterior motive in wanting the transcripts so he can capture Red. In "The Debt Collector" Liz is kidnapped by Edgar Grant who was presumably hired by a man she had arrested previously that forced Red to cooperate with Kaplan.
When he takes her to the cabin to meet with his client, Liz and Grant are taken by surprise when Red shows up. Despite Liz's attempts to help Red reconcile with Kaplan, a gun shot is fired by an unknown assailant.
Liz later calls Red and informs him of her suspicion on Gale being his assailant. Kaplan Conclusion", Liz is informed by Harold that he had done a DNA test between her and Red and she'll know within 24 hours if he is her father.
She later tries to appeal to Kaplan to end the war with Red and she wants to show her a secret. On their way there, Red's men block the attempt and despite Kaplan's warning not to leave the car, Liz does.
After opening an envelope containing the DNA test and believing it to be Kaplan's secret, Liz confronts Red for not telling her the truth about him being her father and having to find out from Cooper.
She tells him that she was upset that she had already lost her mother, her nanny and Sam the people who knew her the best.
Despite this, Liz mentions that she can't let Red deny the fact that she's just like him and anger, despair and love is part of a normal family.
Liz also comes to the realization that Red wanted her to grow more as a FBI profiler and embraces him. In "Zarak Mosadek", while staking out at a pub in Baltimore with Aram, Liz discovers a woman named Lillian who works as a bartender meeting with Garvey.
Later on after taking her to the apartment where she lives, Liz is surprised when she learns Lillian was put in Witness Protection Program by Garvey because of Red's past abuse with her and her mother, Naomi.
She mentions that she is also Red's daughter and they're half-sisters. In "Sutton Ross", Liz visits Tom's gravesite and she tells Tom's ghost that she now knows that her father, Raymond Reddington, is dead and that the man is an imposter.
Tom warns Liz to be careful due to how resourceful the imposter is. In "Rassvet," Liz tracks down her grandfather Dominic Wilkinson with the help of Ressler and finally learns much of the truth about Reddington and her mother from him.
Liz learns that the man she shot as a child, as remembered in "Tom Connolly," was in fact the real Reddington and she killed him.
Dom tells Liz about her mother and her history with Ilya Koslov, the man who became Reddington to protect Katarina. Dom states that twenty-eight years before, her mother had promised to send him a letter to a post office box when she was safe, but he has never gotten one despite checking every week.
Liz later flies to Hong Kong and reveals to Reddington that she knows the truth about who he really is, but he refuses to answer her questions about why he continued being Reddington after gaining access to all of his money.
Donald Ressler is a senior FBI agent who is a stickler for procedure. His father was an honest policeman who was betrayed and killed by his corrupt partner after refusing to take bribes.
He despises having to work with a criminal like Reddington, but he acknowledges that Reddington does get results. Initially he distrusts Liz Keen and her connection to Reddington, but eventually comes to respect and work well with her.
However, in "Mako Tanida" she was believed to be killed by Mako Tanida and forcing Ressler to side with Red to find him.
After capturing him, Ressler and his friend, Bobby Jonica takes him to his father's secret cabin. On the drive there, Ressler is betrayed when Tanida informs him that he wasn't responsible for the deaths of both the FBI agents and Audrey's.
He also learns that Jonica assumed Akio's Tanida's deceased brother identity to continue his business, leading the latter to shoot Tanida for exposing him and Ressler slamming the brakes to stop him.
After capturing Jonica, Ressler blamed him for his betrayal that led to the deaths of their closest friends and Audrey. He also admits that while he doesn't like working with Red, he was the reason why Ressler had Audrey back in his life and because of Jonica, she's dead.
Ressler gave him a choice to kill himself with a knife or Jonica will be shot. Liz convinces Ressler to stand down as Jonica kills himself with the knife.
Back at his apartment, Ressler is heartbroken when he discovers a pregnancy test and learns that Audrey was pregnant with his child.
He later developed an addiction to pain medication from what he went through with Audrey's death and later Meera's own.
He managed to overcome it when Liz convinces Ressler to seek help. When Liz goes on the run after killing Tom Connolly, Ressler urges her to come in, saying that otherwise he will have to lead the FBI manhunt against her.
He eventually decides to release Cooper, but warns that they will keep an eye on him. In "Marvin Gerard", Red informs Ressler that the Cabal had set a trap up for Liz at the airport and he rushes in to prevent the departure.
Though he succeeds, Liz is shaken up by his reckless actions, believing he wanted to capture her, and flees the scene before Ressler could explain himself.
He is later visited by Tom Keen, wishing to assist him knowing trouble is on the horizon for both Red and Liz.
In "Eli Matchett", Ressler refuses his help and warns Tom to stay out of his way. After arresting Liz, Ressler joins Red's efforts to protect her from the Cabal, aiding in protecting Karakurt in "the Director".
He later tells Liz that he believes she was framed and he would not have arrested her if he believed he couldn't protect her.
Ressler is able to protect Liz until Red forces the Cabal to exonerate her. He then returns control of the task force to the reinstated Cooper.
In the season 4 episode "Philomena", Ressler's old friend Julian Gale invites Ressler to join his investigation into the eighty-six bodies exhumed by Mr.
Cooper suggests Ressler do so to help the task force stay ahead of Gale's investigation. Bogdan Krilov", Ressler follows an anonymous tip on Reven Wright's disappearance that leads to a woman living with her sister who has claimed she saw Hitchin order some men carrying a rolled carpet.
When he delved further, the woman admitted she saw a foot come out of the carpet, leading Reesler to suspect that Hitchin murdered Wright.
Before he could take the woman into protective custody, Ressler and her are attacked by men presumably working for Hitchin.
However, Liz and Samar suspect he was being manipulated by Kaplan after Krilov confesses. They stop Ressler just in time from killing Hitchin and Liz revealing he was under the influence of propofol and manipulated to kill Hitchin by Kaplan and Krilov.
Despite standing down, Ressler is later taken into custody with his FBI badge revoked. In "The Debt Collector", when he is accused by Gale for wanting to help Red, Ressler reprimands him for being selfish.
He points out to Gale that he was on another assignment by looking into Wright's murder and had no time to deal with Red's shenanigans.
Ressler lost his badge upon being under the influence of propofol and nearly killed Hitchin had Liz and Samar not stopped him.
The last thing he needed is Gale causing him more problems with his life. He later apologizes to Ressler upon learning what happened to him.
Kaplan", Ressler informs Cooper, Liz, and Samar that Gale has gotten enough intel to demand an indictment on the Task Force involving Red, from the grand jury.
However, Reddington uses the body to force Hitchin into dropping the investigation even though it means that Wright will not get justice as Ressler wanted.
Hitchin subsequently returns Ressler's badge, but they get into an altercation, causing Ressler to accidentally kill her.
He later calls Prescott to help hide Hitchin's body in a similar manner to Wright's, under the pseudonym Red gave Ressler, Frank Sturgeon.
In "Smokey Putnum", Ressler is informed by Cooper that Hitchin died by hitting her head and there will be no further investigation.
He seems relieved by this until Prescott visit him in his van. He informs Ressler that he knows the truth and blackmails him for favors if he wants Prescott to keep his secret involving his accidental murdering of Hitchin.
In "Miss Rebecca Thrall", Ressler is contacted by Prescott for a favor involving a package inside of a car to be delivered to him.
He is reminded of their deal in what could happen if he refuses. After delivering the car to Prescott, Ressler warns him to never call him again.
In "The Informant", while pursuing a criminal, Ressler is contacted by Prescott to stop pursuing his clients. After she leaves, he comes across a tablet and uses the password on it.
It's there, Ressler discovers the names of Prescott's clients, including his own name on the list.
He gets a call from Red, telling him it is time they had a chat. With Red's help, Ressler discovered Prescott's real name and meets him in the park where he's playing football with his family and arrests him.
Afterwards, he gives Cooper a letter of resignation and includes his confession for all the things he's done. Cooper rejects the letter, stating that his name wasn't found on Prescott's client list.
Prescott is later killed by Reddington who removed Ressler from the list. In "Brothers", its revealed that as a teenager Ressler shot and apparently killed his father's former partner Tommy Markin after overhearing a phone call in which Markin revealed the truth during Ressler's father's funeral.
The murder of his father and Ressler's revenge killing inspired him to follow in his father's footsteps and join law enforcement, having previously been going down a troubled teen going down a bad path while his brother Robby was heading to the police academy.
Robby covered up his actions and hid the body while in the present day, Robby seeks Ressler's help after the field he buried Markin in is being dug up for development purposes.
Ressler and Robby try to move the body, only for it to be stolen by the Albanian mob to whom Robby owes money. The mob use Markin's body to blackmail Ressler into stealing a file for them.
Robby eventually reveals that Markin was still alive after Ressler shot him before Robby finished Markin off.
The brothers decide to come clean to Liz even though it means they will go to prison. With Liz's help, Ressler takes down the mobsters after his brother and they reconcile but are not arrested as Liz manages to make the body disappear.
Liz later explains to Ressler that he is the one thing she can count on in her chaotic life and can't afford to lose him.
When first confronted by Elizabeth, Tom asserts to her that he was assigned to protect her, and that Reddington "is not who [she] think he is".
Elizabeth shoots him and stages his death, but keeps him prisoner on a boat for several months to extract as much information as possible.
When she is nearly discovered by the harbor master, Tom saves her by strangling him to death; as a token of gratitude, she lets Tom escape.
Tom later meets with Reddington and their conversation reveals a previous working relationship. Apparently, Tom was recruited at the age of 14 he was then known as Jacob Phelps by a blacklister known as The Major Lance Henriksen due to the combination of sociopathy and extreme talent, to be groomed for covert operations.
Reddington acquired him from The Major to insert him into Elizabeth's life, but when Berlin found out, he doubled Reddington's price.
After his escape, Tom utilizes The Major for a new covert operation as a neo-Nazi drug and arms dealer in Dresden named Christof Mannheim, but not before calling Elizabeth; he appears to have developed genuine feelings for her during their "marriage", which seems to complicate matters for both The Major and Reddington, as it was the reason behind his killing the harbor master on Elizabeth's boat.
When Elizabeth nearly gets subpoenaed for the harbor master's murder, Reddington and Ressler attempt to extradite Tom from Germany so he can clear her name; Tom initially refuses, but then appears in court and willfully surrenders.
The Major, seeing Tom as a liability after this affair, tries to shoot Tom but the Germans intercept them; Tom bargains for their lives and they both manage to escape, but The Major is still set to have Tom killed.
Desperate, Tom hides at Elizabeth's place and pleads her to give him his passports; in exchange, she convinces him to tell her the truth about his relationship with Reddington, then reveals that she had always known that on some level, Tom's love for her and their life together was genuine.
He later tells Liz of his dream to become a fisherman and urges her to come with him to Japan to start a new life with each other, but she declines, telling him that she needs to finish what she's started.
In "Marvin Gerard", Tom appears before Ressler, wishing to help assist him in saving Liz, suspecting the tides are against Red's favor.
In "Eli Matchett", he and Ressler get into a brief scuffle with each other. While waiting for Liz to call him, Tom meets with Cooper and is recruited to help investigate Karakurt.
Posing as a hustler, he befriends a wealthy socialite and infiltrates an underground street-fighting ring, where he eventually locates Karakurt.
He brings the assassin to Cooper, but the Cabal finds them, forcing all three men to go on the run. Eventually, with Ressler and Cooper's help, he evades the Cabal and delivers Karakurt into federal custody.
After Liz is released, Tom proposes marriage to her, but she turns him down, saying that she is too uncertain about the future to accept.
Tom is later confronted by Red who warns him to stay away from Liz, after the actions he pulled when he ignored his first warning that led to this.
After Liz's death, he tells Red to stay away from Agnes and blames him for his failure to protect her. In "The Artax Network", Samar visits Tom in the hospital who has been having a hard time raising Agnes alone and offers to help him.
Tom is later recruited again by Cooper to keep an eye on Cynthia Panabaker and he discovers more that confirms Cooper's suspicion.
Visiting Cooper in the post office, he is able to confirm the woman that Panabaker had a meeting looks like Liz's mother, Katarina.
During the mission, Tom shoots Solomon in revenge, but Solomon seemingly gets away after Tom leaves. Tom later goes after Susan before Red calls him to stop Tom.
Red reveals that Tom is in fact Christopher Hargrave, Susan's long-missing son. Moments later, Susan enters and tells him about her son, how he disappeared twenty-eight years earlier when he was three years old and she always hopes to see him again.
On Red's advice, Tom doesn't let Susan know he's her son but doesn't kill her for Agnes' sake. Tom's spying on one of Kirk's men and confrontation leads him to where Kirk's true whereabouts are: Russia.
He calls Liz to warn Red about Kirk's plans to kill him. In "The Architect", Tom searches for the truth about his true parentage and why he disappeared years ago, after reading the death of his father, Howard Hargrave.
His search leads to a mother whose son made Tom disappear and procures a confession from him. He also learns that Susan had faked Howard's death and had an ulterior motive for Halycon.
This led to Tom convincing Nez to side with him as they try to uncover the truth of the secret Susan had been hiding the whole time concerning Whitehall.
Solomon tries to stop Tom and Nez, claiming that Susan was set up by Howard and had no knowledge on it. Kaplan, Conclusion", it's revealed that Tom found the suitcase Kaplan left in the storage locker and looks inside it.
He discovers the skeletal remains of an undisclosed person and closes the suitcase. Tom then takes it with him under Kaplan's orders to deliver the suitcase.
In "Ian Garvey", Tom finally found out who the skeletal remains belong to and the connection she has with Elizabeth.
Now realizing the truth, he calls Liz to come home and plans to tell her the truth about her mother along with the fact Red killed Kopal.
However, Ian Garvey interferes with his group and attacks the two. Having taken back the bag containing the skeletal remains, he leaves and has a few of his men get rid of Tom and Liz to send a message to Red.
Despite Tom's best efforts to fight them off, he is stabbed as Liz loses consciousness. Tom's final words are that Liz will be the one to make it and he dies in the hospital.
Not much has been revealed about her character other than that she is a CIA agent tasked with Reddington's file, and that she is the mother of two children.
She was revealed to have unknowingly leaked information to the terrorist Anslo Garrick upon the orders of an unknown individual. Reddington discovers this and forces her to help him unmask the person responsible.
She ends up betraying the task force. In season 1's finale, "Berlin: Conclusion", she is killed in a nightclub by an escaped convict who slits her throat.
He is on an upwardly mobile career path in the Bureau, something that his work with Reddington occasionally threatens to derail.
He had a particular interest in Reddington's past, and is willing to oblige Reddington's unusual requests due to this understanding of him.
He was attacked and put into a coma by Berlin's agents at the end of season 1. By Season 2, Cooper regained consciousness, but is revealed to have an inoperable brain tumor in the episode "T.
Earl King VI". With the help of his friend, Attorney General Connolly, he entered an experimental drug trial.
However, he has had to compromise his ethics and perform various morally dubious tasks for Connolly to stay in his favor and remain in the trial.
He confronts Connolly, who admits that he has been manipulating him on behalf of the Cabal. He blackmails Cooper into helping them, saying that they will destroy Cooper and his wife Charlene if he fails to cooperate.
Cooper tells Reddington about the situation, and the two attempt to use Cooper's connection to Connolly against the Cabal.
