Following the death of Tom, The Blacklist will return with a very different episode — and EW has an exclusive first look.

Bucking the traditional Blacklister-titled hour, the NBC drama picks back up on Jan. 3 with a “Cape May”-esque hour that finds Liz (Megan Boone) struggling to deal with her grief in the wake of losing her husband.

“When we come back, we find Elizabeth Keen in a very strange and unexpected place — she’s no longer a wife, no longer working for the FBI task force, she’s essentially living an entirely new life,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp tells EW. “Additionally, there’s also no Blacklister in this next episode. Instead, it’s like its own little movie and unlike anything we’ve done in the series thus far.”
