Tom and Liz Keen will officially reunite in The Blacklist’s season 5 premiere — and EW has the exclusive first look.
Last season, Tom (Ryan Eggold) went in search of his family on The Blacklist spin-off, Redemption. Liz’s (Megan Boone) fiancé returned briefly in the finale’s final moments when he retrieved the suitcase unearthed by Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) that could supposedly be Red’s (James Spader) undoing.
“It’s not your typical homecoming, that’s for sure,” executive producer Jon Bokenkamp tells EW.
“Tom has no idea what he’s walking into, and, in some ways, it’ll feel like the dynamic he had with Liz in season 1,” Bokenkamp teases.
What's in the Suitcase, Tom?
“The suitcase is important, but he doesn’t know where that mystery will lead him — and he’s definitely conscious of the fact that answers tend to come with consequences,” Bokenkamp says. We’ll find out what those consequences might be when The Blacklist returns Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
