Zap2it has reached out to NBC for comment, so we’ll let you know when we have any details. For now, let’s speculate!
Do you think Wiest could be a member of Red’s blacklist? Is she some evil criminal that the FBI takes out at Red’s behest? Maybe.
You can probably rule out Red’s family — Wiest is too young to be his mother but too old to be his wife.
What is probably the most likely is that she’s playing a government official. In fact, smart money says Wiest plays a friend or colleague of Fitch (Alda), which means she’s probably going to be adversarial to Red while also being sort of untouchable (unlike if she was a criminal).
What do you think, fans? Sound off below!
