  • Jossed: Season 2 Episode 20 confirms that Liz is not Red's daughter; her mother was a Russian woman associated with the KGB, who Red knew and he's watching over her in part because of that. So that theory is out... probably. It's hard to say for sure, and given Red's habit of lying even this might be the truth. The one thing we can be (almost) sure of is that Liz isn't the daughter of Red who he left behind along with his wife when he went rogue.
