For fans of NBC's The Blacklist, the wait between seasons has been an excruciating one.
The season 6 finale, saw Red (James Spader), following Liz (Megan Boone) and Ressler's (Diego Klattenhoff) investigations into his true identity, kidnapped by Katarina Rostova (Laila Robins).
But is this mystery woman truly the Katarina Rostova we've seen in flashbacks? What does Rostova want? And just how much danger is Red in?
Finally, with the show's return on October 4, answers to some of these questions are finally coming.
The premiere will span 2 episodes, airing on Oct. 4, and concluding on Oct. 11. We've seen both instalments a little early, thanks to our friends at NBC, and have prepped a number of teasers for you below.
As always (Or if you're just joining us this TV season) we never reveal major plot points or character developments that would spoil your enjoyment of the live episodes. However, Scoop and Spoiler articles from our magazine do dip a toe in spoilery waters, so please proceed with caution.
Finally, as a special request, we ask readers not to copy and paste chunks of the article onto social media - both as a courtesy to those who would prefer not to read details in advance - and to us, as it hurts our readership.

What Does Katarina Even Want?
Don’t worry, we’ll find out. Although we won’t hear Red referring to her by name in either episode.
This Katarina is a scalpel, mercilessly slicing away at Red’s secrets in order to get at the answers she craves.
Will Red cave? We’re not saying, but we loved trying to untangle the cryptic meanings throughout the various conversations between this pair.
