In Friday's new episode of The Blacklist, the trial of Raymond Reddington (James Spader) is going to take a turn that Red is not into, so he's out. This whole prison thing is canceled. So he enlists the help of Vontea (Coy Stewart) and Vega (Javier Molina) to help him escape. To that end, he gives them one of the weirdest shopping lists ever assembled: "a quarter pound of ground chuck, three ounces of bleach, same amount of paint or nail polish remover, rubber cement, hair clippings from the prison barbershop." Um, what?
"It is certainly an eclectic grocery list of items," creator Jon Bokenkamp told TV Guide. "The hair from the prison barber is the one that makes me most uncomfortable."
"I think that's the promise of why to tune in this week," Bokenkamp continued. "What is it that Red has up his sleeve? This is sort of a big episode, where Reddington is expecting to get out and hoping to escape. But you'll have to tune in to see how all these puzzle pieces fall together in a very Raymond Reddington-like escape."
The Blacklist airs Fridays at 9/8c on NBC.
