Following his near death by lethal injection last week, Red (James Spader) has a brand new lust for life this week, as The Blacklist rolls out two back to back episodes on Friday.

This new sneak peek clip, courtesy of NBC, sees Red and old pal Robert Vesco (played by guest star Stacy Keach), planning the heist of the century, as they confer over how best to steal a special “treasure” during a performance of The Barber of Seville.

However, Red wouldn’t be Red, and this wouldn’t be The Blacklist without a sly angle. Apparently, Red and the Task Force are hunting — and baiting — the notorious Vesco, who also happens to be one of history’s most famous con men.

Will Red make off with Vesco’s treasure before Liz (Megan Boone) and the gang manage to apprehend him?

Watch the clip below and let us know your thoughts.

The “Robert Vesco” episode of The Blacklist airs Friday, March 29 (08:00PM – 09:00PM) on NBC, with a second episode “The Osterman Umbrella Company” airing at 09:00PM on NBC.
