The Blacklist Season 4 has been a topsy-turvy season so far. At the end of last episode, viewers were made to believe that Red (James Spader) killed Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) for betraying him. Kaplan also confirmed Red’s suspicion of helping Liz (Megan Boone) plot her escape.
Kaplan barely survived the gunshot but now struggles as she got stuck in a forest. Fortunately for her, a couple of people came to her aid but not yet confirmed if these people are only trying to rescue her or have the intention to hurt her.
When Mr. Kaplan was seen being dragged through the woods by an unknown man on a makeshift stretcher, questions started to circulate as to who the man was and what does he want with Mr. Kaplan.
“Boy, what can I tell you? We’re gonna go down the rabbit hole with Mr. Kaplan into a sort of unexpected world, I think. She has been left for dead and has been rescued. That could be good and that could be bad, and maybe full of a couple turns and twists. But what that character will not do is race her to the nearest Good Samaritan hospital and wish her well. It’ll be a little more fun than that,” series creator, Jon Bokenkamp, told TV Guide when asked about his take on Mr. Kaplan’s fate this season.
“What we don’t typically do is slow stuff way down. That is going to be a story that is a little bit of a slow burn for us. It’s not going to be completely answered in the next episode or even the one after that. There’s a little bit of a slow burn story that we’re telling with this character who we just met last week in silhouette and Mr. Kaplan. I think it’s going to be rather interesting,” Bokenkamp added.
