Fall TV Preview
The Blacklist Season 3

Blacklist Season 3 Photos: Blonde Liz, Gun-Toting Red — But Where's Tom?

The more things change on The Blacklist, the more they stay the same.

Even though some elements of the NBC drama look different in the newest batch of Season 3 photos — namely, Liz’s platinum locks — others feel totally familiar. (Red aiming a rifle at somebody? What else is new?)

Also featured in the photos from Season 3’s first two installments: Ressler, Samar and Aram looking tense as they try to track down their onetime co-worker, plus Red keeping tabs on all Liz-related news coverage — while hiding out in a really fancy house, might we add.

One character seemingly missing from the early episodes? Tom Keen, who was last seen setting sail for who-knows-where in the Season 2 finale. (Fret not, though, the latest edition of Ask Ausiello provides some clues — straight from series creator Jon Bokenkamp — on that handsome villain’s recent activities.)

The Blacklist returns Thursday, Oct. 1, at 9/8c on NBC. Click through our gallery of Season 3 photos below in the meantime, then hit the comments with your thoughts!
