Welcome to The Blacklist Observations – the easter eggs and connections guide for NBC’s latest serial-procedural. This week, we’re putting Red’s mystery numbers under observation.
- Towards the end of “Wujing,” Red opens the red envelope that Wujing gave him as payment. It contained the numbers: 042983. This is Megan Boone‘s (Elizabeth Keen) birthday, according to IMDB. But what does it mean within the world of The Blacklist?
- Can we assume April 29, 1983 is also Elizabeth Keen’s D.O.B? Why did Wujing have it and what does it mean to Red, who was somewhat moved as he gazed at them?
- In the episode, Red admits to Lizzie that he chose her because of her father. With this in mind, does it fuel the flames that he’s secretly her real father, or hint at towards a less ‘obvious’ connection?…
