The Blacklist has churned out some really unique weirdos as its weekly villains, but the one coming up in this Wednesday's hour is seriously missing a screw — and he's got Samar (Mozhan Marnò) in deep trouble.

In this exclusive clip from the episode, Samar meets her captor (recognizable weirdo character actor Pruitt Taylor Vince), and of course instead of answering her extremely straightforward question, he goes off on one of those evil madman speeches about what it's like to kill someone.

"The taking of a life, I've only done it a few times," he says. Ummm, dude. She asked you about the girl at the hospital. Stay focused here.

And yeah, of course he has a cage full of rats.

The good news is that Aram (Amir Arison) is on the way to rescue her with the Task Force right behind him! Elsewhere, Red (James Spader) heads to Costa Rica to stop the infamous bag of bones from being sold at an auction, because as we all know, all bags of bones eventually make their way to Costa Rica.

The Blacklist airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
