When The Blacklist returns with new episodes this Thursday, Liz (Megan Boone) is awaiting trial on murder charges after being taken into custody by the FBI - but that may be the least of her problems.

According to Red (James Spader), who's trying to buy more time so that he can put together a plan to clear Liz's name, a shadow government is looking to kidnap Liz and is hot on the trail of her and Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff). In the exclusive clip below, Red tells Ressler that he needs to do everything in his power to keep Liz alive, otherwise the repercussions will be disastrous. And at this point, even Liz is skeptical that she's going to make it to her hearing unscathed.
