‘The Blacklist’ Creator Jon Bokenkamp Discusses What’s New In Season Six

Published

For five seasons on The Blacklist, fans have been following Reddington and Keen’s evergrowing relationship. With season five’s wild finale, fans have been wondering the truth behind Reddington’s actions. For season six, things will be taken to a completely different level.

The Haunting Truth

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, director Jon Bokenkamp talked about where the show is headed. “Identity is a big [theme]. It really has been central to the show from the very beginning, but I think now, more than ever, with this reveal that Reddington is, in fact, an impostor and so much of what we’ve been led to believe has been undermined and eroded,” he said.

With the reveal that Reddington isn’t Keen’s father, things have drastically changed for the profiler.

Roles Getting Reversed

One constant about The Blacklist is how Reddington is always ahead of every situation. Unaware that Keen knows the truth, this gets flipped upside down for him.

“In all of the scenes that they play together [this year], not only does he know he is not ultimately the original Raymond Reddington, she also knows that this man is not her father. It creates a really interesting power struggle and a mental chess game between these two characters who are carrying on presenting stories of who they are and yet, Elizabeth Keen is working in the shadows in trying to unlock the truth behind why he entered her life.” Bokenkamp told ET.

Follow The Clues

As expected, Bokenkamp placed subtle hints towards the shocking reveal in the past few seasons. Reddington truthfully admitted to not being her father in season one episode “Anslo Garrick Conclusion.” In the season four finale “Mr. Kaplan: Conclusion,” a DNA test determined that Reddington is her father. Unfortunately, this Raymond Reddington isn’t the same one working alongside her.

“Those kinds of things that play out over two, three, four or five seasons are often very difficult to stay true to but I think we’ve done a very good job of it. I hope the audience can track that,” Bokenkamp said in the interview.

Beverly Hills, 90210: Was Luke Perry Team Dylan or Team Brandon?

Some television shows come into our lives at the exact right moment, so that they become inextricably bound with our memories of those complicated coming-of-age years, Beverly Hills 90210 is without a doubt one of those shows. We all tuned in week after week, year after year because the drama was just so addicting. The love triangles! The will-they-won’t-theys! Meanwhile, when the cameras weren’t rolling, the cast was up to plenty of off-set antics of their own. Disclaimer: after you read about what went down, it might have you rethinking everything — were those angsty expressions just good acting, or were they bringing some real-life drama into it?
