EXCLUSIVE: THE BLACKLIST is Coming Back and Here's What You Need to Know

With Redemption closing out its concluding episode last week, the stage is finally set for the return of The Blacklist on Thursday night.

The show left us back in February with the stellar "The Apothecary," an episode which saw Red (James Spader) desperately seeking the person responsible for his almost-fatal poisoning, and the collapse of his financial empire.

By the episode's end we knew two things: Red was going to survive, thanks to a last minute save by Liz (Megan Boone), and faithful Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) was apparently revealed to be the man behind the attack.

So what now?

We've seen the first hour of Thursday's double header a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have prepped a number of teasers for you below. As always, we avoid outright plot point reveals and spoilers (and there are quite a few this Thursday, believe us) that might ruin the live experience for some.

However, one man's teaser is another man's spoiler, as the old saying we just made up goes, so tread carefully either way is our recommendation here.

Here's everything you need to know about The Blacklist's return:

A Revealing Team Up

If you’ve been keeping up to date on log lines and photos from Thursday’s return episodes then you’ll know the first hour will see Red and the Task Force coming together in their hunt for Dembe. What, other than a Blacklist case could prompt Harold and the gang to take an interest in Red’s crumbling empire issues? The kidnapping of one of their own, of course. (Did you know that Dembe Zuma is number 10 on the Black List?)

Expect to see lots of Liz shadowing Red this week as the pair attempt to unscramble a mystery surrounding Dembe’s disappearance, and how it is tied to Red’s own recent troubles.
