Dembe is about to get in over his head in tonight’s Blacklist, and Red’s not happy about it.
The episode, titled “The Kilgannon Corporation,” will see Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) choosing to go undercover in Greece in order to infiltrate an international human smuggling organization — a practice Dembe is personally all too familiar with.
However when communication is lost, Red (James Spader) and the Task Force must locate their man before he is lost forever.
In the first of two new sneak peek clips below, Red and Dembe have a heart to heart about the mission, with Red asking his old friend to reconsider. However, as Red learns, it’s Dembe’s past experiences at the hands of those who would treat him like a thing, that now motivates him to put a stop to this new trafficking ring.
“If something goes wrong … ” Dembe begins.
“It won’t!” says Red, more to convince himself than his friend.
“If it does?”
“I’ll look after your family,” says Red.
“I know you will,” Dembe tells him. “But my concern is who will look after you.”
And that in a nutshell is why we love these two unlikely friends.
The “Kilgannon Corporation” episode of The Blacklist airs Wednesday, November 8 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) on NBC.
