The Cleaner [Mr. Kaplan | Susan Blommaert] #9: "I'm not going to prison, Raymond. Pull the trigger. Release the truth."

"Mr. Kaplan is one of the few characters that Red almost, almost relaxes with.
And you feel, almost could say anything to. I think there's, I think it's a feeling they confide in each other.
They know a lot about each other. I think they know a lot of each other's secrets.
And that is a bond. A really close bond I believe" - Susan


Mr. "Kate" Kaplan is a very mysterious woman. She has worked for Raymond Reddington for many years. She is Reddington's personal "cleaner" who comes in to scrub crime scenes. She helps Reddington clean up after he kills Diane Fowler. She also disposed the bodies of Lucy Brooks and the Cowboy after they are found by Reddington's people. Before she started working for Red, she was hired by Katarina Rostova to be Liz's nanny. She became friends with Katarina after discovering she was a Soviet spy and learned that she was having an affair with Reddington. When Katarina was forced to flee and abandon her daughter, Kaplan left Liz with her foster father, Sam. Later, she fell in love with a woman named Annie Kaplan, and assumed her surname after Annie was murdered in front of her. She then joined Reddington's employ to protect Liz, on the understanding that she would always place Liz's interests ahead of his. Mr. Kaplan faked Liz's death with the knowledge and help of Liz, Tom and Nik to help Liz and her daughter escape Red's lifestyle. Red finds out that Mr. Kaplan faked Liz's death after an associate of him tells him that Mr. Kaplan made arrangements for Tom and Agnes to leave the country. Red demands that Mr. Kaplan tells him where Tom and Agnes are and tells her that Alexander Kirk is after them. Then Mr. Kaplan reveals that Liz is still alive and is with Tom and Agnes. She is shot in the head by Red but survives and is held hostage by an unknown man. She later recovers and leaves.
She exhumes all the bodies she buried for Reddington over the years, intending to use them to destroy him. She confronts Red, she declares that it is impossible for the two of them to coexist. After that Kaplan attacks the task force, first attempting to steal a copy of Reddington's immunity agreement with the DOJ and give it to Julian Gale. When Reddington foils this plan, Kaplan agrees to testify about Reddington's crimes to a grand jury. Before doing so, she exhumes a suitcase containing the skeleton of an unknown individual. After the grand jury is dissolved through Reddington's machinations, Kaplan is cornered by the FBI and Reddington. The latter refuses to kill her and admits his remorse for trying in the first place, but she tells him that she has arranged for an accomplice to give Liz "the truth" after her death, then she commits suicide.

It's so fitting, especially considering her character being dead now.

And still I wish it would have all ended in a different way.

The fact, that she didn't even try to talk to him... Not really. There were a few words but never a real conversation, was there?

No there wasn't. Not a real one like I wanted. They never gave each other the time to explain.

What an amazing quote!! And so fitting. But he didn't pull the trigger. Not because he was afraid of the truth but because he couldn't do it again.

I hate that they never talked or reconciled. And we are left with so many questions.

Yeah, true, Miranda... I'm totally with you. That's the problem, they both said things but none ever got the chance to explain it...

I loved that he couldn't do it again. It made totally sense to kill her once and I wanted her dead honestly the second time but I couldn't see him pulling the trigger anymore either.

And you know what I love still? That she told him that she loved him.

I wanted her dead the first time too.

Yeah she loved him. Sigh. So sad really. I can't think about it or I'm gonna get frustrated with that storyline again.

I am so glad he didn't pull the trigger either. If he had really killed her, I don't think he could have lived with himself.

And since she loved him I don't understand how she was able to betray him like that... I get why she went nuts after he shot her, really. But helping Liz to fake her death, it all being her idea actually, I will never understand.

I really wish we had got more of her reasons for faking Lizs death. I honestly never understood her reasoning. Even her flashback didn't help.
