Annie Kaplan, The Blacklist
Annie Kaplan (Amy Rutberg)
In the mid-season premiere of Season 4 (4×16 “Dembe Zuma”, 4×17 “Requiem”) Kate Kaplan’s backstory was revealed via flashbacks.
The younger version of Kate (played by Joanna P. Adler) attended medical school but changed careers and got a masters in childhood development. She eventually met a woman named Annie Kaplan.
Another flashback showed a love-struck Kate building a life with Annie. One night as the ladies were about to enjoy a romantic dinner, a man Annie’s uncle had tracked down for missing a hearing came in waving a gun. He asked for Annie’s name and then snorted at Kate, “I guess that makes you Mr. Kaplan,” before shooting them both. Annie was killed and the bullet passed through Kate’s head, requiring her to have a metal plate put in but not causing permanent damage.
