Meanwhile, fans have been speculating that Boone's pregnancy and maternity leave could be one of the reasons why she was killed off in season 3. However, expectations are high that in the finale the showcreators could bring her back from the dead.

Liz's mysterious past has always played a major role in her and Red's relationship, but it seemed odd when she was killed off without even knowing that she has a grandfather who concealed his identity to keep her safe.

The trend of bringing popular characters back from the dead is a sort of a trend these days and this gives some hope for Boone's return to the show. Further, Enstarz reported that the new mother was spotted at the Blacklist filming area.

To find out whether Liz would return in Blacklist season 3, watch the upcoming episode which will air on 12 May at 9pm ET on NBC.
