I’m really confused about Red’s wife and daughter as so far we’ve heard three different things:
1. They’re alive. The original script says so, with Lizzie telling Red how his wife keeps lighting candles or something like that every Christmas Eve, even if she knows…
I think I was the first one to posit that Lizzie was the daughter of a bad guy and Red saved her. I continue to believe a version of this… I also strongly believe Red raised her before her adoptive father adopted her. I know a lot of people ship Red and Lizzie, but I’ve always felt that Red’s treatment of Lizzie is mostly paternal. Sure, he’s inappropriate sometimes, but Red is just an inappropriate person, lol. His sense of humor is warped, but I still think his actions toward Lizzie are mostly paternal. In the episode two weeks ago, when he held her as the song of her childhood played on the music box, it conveyed that he was a surrogate father. There is great chemistry between James Spader and Megan Fox, but I don’t believe it’s romantic. Honestly, I believe Liz and Ressler are endgame in the ship department. At least for now.
And most people drive on the right side of the road, but you don’t see petitions and shame graphics being promoted in an effort to make the English change the way they drive. Also, I love how everyone’s all “Be different! Be yourself” and yet there are countless memes about how stupid people are for being different, lol.
