Desperate to save his father, Tom will turn to an unlikely ally during Thursday’s episode of The Blacklist: Redemption.
In the exclusive sneak peek below, Tom (Ryan Eggold) enlists the help of Nez (Tawny Cypress) to free Howard (Terry O’Quinn) from Scottie’s (Famke Janssen) clutches. But can she be trusted?
“I hope so, I think so,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp tells EW. “That is a really weird dynamic on that show in terms of the alliances. You’ve got Solomon, who tried to kill Tom; Nez, who is somebody who is new to him; Howard, who is an unreliable narrator; and Scottie, who is clearly bad. Tom is in a precarious place in terms of what to do with the secrets and information that he has. Nez is one of the few people he can trust and needs to trust, but we’ll have to see how that plays out.”
Now that Scottie knows Howard is actually alive, it’s only a matter of time before the truth about Tom’s involvement comes spilling out. “Knowing Howard faked his death, Scottie confronts him — and this obviously isn’t going to be your typically warm, picnic in the park, family reunion,” Bokenkamp says. “These are two incredibly powerful people. Finally, we have Howard and Scottie facing off in a super compelling way and, as a result, Tom is going to end up in the crosshairs.”
The Blacklist: Redemption airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
