THE BLACKLIST: Did Red kill Liz's parents?

The Blacklist has many questions,puzzles to solve. The main one is the the connection between Raymond "Red" Reddington and FBI Special Agent Elizabeth Keen. Why did he choose her? I am about to tell you what I think and why. This is the information we have so far. Keen is adopted. There was a fire in her home when she was a kid. We can only guess that her parents died in that fire. In one episode she has a flashback to the fire. We see a man in the house during the fire but we don't know who that man is. I think that man was Red and he saved her life. Next, we know that the man that adopted Keen is a very close friend of Red. I think Red ask his friend to adopt Keen. Do you remember Anslo Garrick Part 2? When Garrick was talking to Red about Liz. When he ask Red what he was feeling he said , regret. So, looking at this information. I think it leads to only one thing. Raymond "Red" Reddington killed Elizabeth Keen parents or is somehow responsible for their deaths.He feels guilty and wants to take care of her. This is not his only reason for working with the FBI. But this explains their relationship.

So this is my Blacklist theory. I would loved to hear yours. If you have any ideas about Red and Liz or anything else on the show. Please leave your comments on YouTube at the video below.




UPDATE:
In the pilot episode, Red talks to Agent Elizabeth Keen about her parents and childhood . At that time it would seem they were talking about her birth parents. But now it seems they were talking about her adopted parents. By her conversation with her husband in Anslo Garrick part 1. She said her husband had reliable records and could trace his whole life and she could not. It appears that Keen has no knowledge of her birth parents.  When she was asked to profile her in the first episode. She said she was like most kids that rasied themselves. In the General Ludd episode we lean Agent Elizabeth Keen  was adopted at  age 4.  So Everything they said about her parents and her childhood in the pilot . It was all after she was adopted at age 4.  Also there must have been more than one fire. In the pilot she says she hurt her hand in a fire at the age of 14. But in Anslo Garrick she has sees a box of toys from her childhood. And that makes her have a flashback to a fire in her childhood. But in this fire she is not 14. It is clear this flashback is from her very early childhood. We see crayon drawings on a wall, and other toys of a very small child. She is a very small child during this fire and not 14.

Red did have a family. He did have a daughter. But Agent Keen is not his daughter. There is zero chance that Keen is Red's daughter. Megan Boone talks about this in the video below.
