The Blacklist Timeline

the blacklist timeline

Who is Raymond “Red” Reddington?

The Blacklist timeline is based on the NBC TV show The Blacklist and its spin off Blacklist:Redemption. The Blacklist stars James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington who is a former U.S. Navy Admiral who vanishes to become a high profile criminal. For unknown reasons he voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after being on the run for decades. In exchange from prosecution Raymond makes a deal with the FBI. He tells the FBI he has compiled a list of the most dangerous criminals in the world and is willing to work with the FBI on the condition he only works with Elizabeth Keen. So the question is why does Raymond want to work with Keen? What is his relationship with her? Novels and comics are included in the timeline as they would occur in the TV series.
