Well, Tom (Ryan Eggold) got back in the game in episode 4 of NBC's "The Blacklist" Season 3, working undercover for an off-the-books Cooper (Harry Lennix) to infiltrate the Cabal and help clear Liz's (Megan Boone) name. He had better hurry! In episode 6, "Arioch Cain," Liz and Red (James Spader) find themselves in more danger than ever before when Liz becomes the target of the world's top assassins.
According to the synopsis for the new episode, the Cabal puts the pressure on Liz and Red when they offer a sizeable reward for anyone who can take out the former FBI agent. With a price on Liz's head, it will get even harder for the pair to hide with some of the world's most dangerous people on their tails. Can Red protect her?
Maybe they will get some help from Ressler (Diego Klattenhoff) and the FBI? Not so fast. The promo reveals that the acting FBI director is still pretty stubborn about handling things by the book.
"We are not going to protect [Liz]," Ressler tells his team in the teaser. "We are going to arrest her."
However, the FBI might have some competition in the form of Mr. Solomon (Edi Gathegi). In episode 4, the Cabal enforcer had grown tired of torturing Dembe (Hisham Tawfiq) for Red's location and instead used Mr. Vargas (Paul Reubens) to trick Dembe into revealing how to contact his boss -- meanwhile, they left Dembe for dead! The promo shows Red and Liz turning up in an airport hanger expecting to find Dembe and instead coming face to face with the traitorous Vargas and Mr. Solomon. How will they get themselves out of this situation?

Will Red be able to keep Liz safe with all of the world's top assassins gunning for her life? Fans will have to wait to find out. "The Blacklist" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.
