It's All Relative: 9 Ways The Blacklist Will Beguile You in Season 2

Get your daddy theories ready because The Blacklist is back to toy with every one of them.

I am so excited for the 100th episode of The Good Wife! What can you tease? — Lisa
ADAM:

Come on! Why doesn't The Blacklist just reveal that Red is Liz's dad? We're all thinking it, right? — Sean
NATALIE: Actually, Tom is Liz's dad. Kidding! (And ew!) The producers are... read more
