If only being on the FBI's Most Wanted list was Liz's only problem.

After Liz (Megan Boone) shot the Attorney General on The Blacklist last season, she and her friend/informant Red (James Spader) are on the run together. Unfortunately, while they're focused on avoiding the Feds, a wily new foe will catch them unawares.

"There's a character named Mr. Solomon who is going to be entering the landscape and is not friendly in any way to Liz or Red or the people they care about," executive producer John Eisendrath tells TVGuide.com. In fact, Mr. Solomon puts someone close to Red in a very vulnerable position that could compromise everyone's safety.

Creator Jon Bokenkamp adds, "We've cast Edi Gathegi for that role. He was in Twilight, Justified, a show called Proof. He's just so charismatic."

Liz won't be completely out of her element though. The rogue FBI agent is a criminal profiler for a reason. "We are going to see glimpses of a criminal past that we've hinted at before," Bokenkamp says. "In the pilot, Red said, 'Think like a criminal. It may come easier to you than you think.' We're going to see whispers of her past and how that sort of thinking may be useful in some of these desperate situations."

The Blacklist returns Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9/8c on NBC.
