Aram Mojtabai

Raymond “Red” Reddington, one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, surrenders in person at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He claims that he and the FBI have the same interests: bringing down dangerous criminals and terrorists. In the last two decades, he’s made a list of criminals and terrorists that matter the most but the FBI cannot find because it does not know they exist. Reddington calls this “The Blacklist”. Reddington will co-operate, but insists that he will speak only to Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler.

There are foundational elements in our lives.  People that form the brick and mortar of who we are. People that are so deeply embedded, we take their existence for granted, until suddenly they’re not there. And we collapse into rubble. I’ve stood over the open grave of someone I’ve loved too often. Once, for my mother. And then the others. I needed to recall this feeling because, I’d be staring at another body right now if not for you, Aram.  It wasn’t weakness that prevented you from watching your friend die today. It was hope. And thank heavens you were in a hopeful mood. You saved Elizabeth. I’m forever in your debt.
