It’s the moment The Blacklist‘s fourth season has been building to: Red and Mr. Kaplan will finally face off in the upcoming season finale — and EW has the exclusive first look.

After discovering that Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) was the mastermind behind the downfall of his empire, Red (James Spader) has been on a collision course with his former cleaner. Can they both survive this showdown?

The Blacklist season finale is a big, two-hour event,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp tells EW. “The devastating war between Reddington and Kaplan all comes down to this final moment: Reddington and Kaplan — standing face to face — the end of a relationship that spans decades.”

The Blacklist‘s two-hour season finale airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
