‘The Blacklist’ Trailers: What’s So Special About Elizabeth Keen?

James Spader’s role in NBC’s new thriller The Blacklist is straightforward enough: he’s a bad guy playing the institution, who no doubt has ulterior motives for handing himself over to be a criminal snitch for the police. But what’s the deal with his relationship with rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone)? Spader’s Raymond “Red” Reddington insists that he will only speak with Keen in both of NBC’s latest trailers, a move that guarantees he has been following her career. But why? Is she is daughter? The daughter of a victim? Or does her career path intrigue him for another reason? (Or maybe he watched The Silence of the Lambs one too many times and decided he needed his own Clarice?)
