Liz’s former faux husband Tom Keen (Ryan Eggold) is returning to The Blacklist this week and EW has the exclusive sneak peek at his new look.

Tom disappeared into the ether after killing the harbormaster who caught Liz (Megan Boone) holding him hostage. Once Tom was let go in exchange for assistance with a blacklister case, viewers learned that Tom does, in fact, have a connection to Red (James Spader). Will that connection force Tom to help Liz when she faces murder charges for the death of the harbormaster?

“It really is crazy to me, some people love Tom Keen—love the mystery—others despise Tom for what he did to Liz,” executive producer Jon Bokenhamp says. “One thing is for sure: Tom is a chameleon. Very soon, the glasses are going to come off and we’re gong to learn a lot more about this man and his connection to the shows greater mythology. “

 The Blacklist airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
