“The Blacklist” Season 4 kicked off with a bang, as Agent Keen (Megan Boone) was kidnapped by Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen) and baby Agnes, whom Red (James Spader) and Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) thought they had saved, was taken by Mato (Raoul Trujillo) after a harrowing T-bone car accident in the episode’s waning moments.

In our exclusive sneak peek of the follow-up episode, “Mato,” Mr. Kaplan is still feeling guilty about how everything went down, but Tom (Ryan Eggold) tells her she has nothing to apologize for. She was simply trying to help Liz and Tom start a new life away from Reddington.

“I don’t regret trying to get away from you,” Tom tells Red.

“Of course you don’t. Regret requires age or wisdom,” says Red, full of disdain. He always thinks he knows best — though usually he ends up being right.

He then tells the both of them that when they get to “Amarillo,” it’s “best to do as I say.” So get your cowboy boots and hats ready, because apparently the gang is headed to Texas.

Elsewhere in the episode, Liz is still being held by Kirk, so she decides to try to find out if she can trust him or not. There’s also that pesky matter of the fact that we don’t think he’s really her father.

“The Blacklist” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
