That is how you return from a cliffhanger!
The two-night Blacklist premiere really delivered after an extended eight-month hiatus.

An American woman suffered permanent brain damage after she drank a liter of soy sauce in an attempt to ‘cleanse her colon.’
A 39-year-old woman drank the condiment believing it would flush toxins from her body, recounted Dr Bernard on his medical YouTube channel Chubbyemu,
Instead, she ended up going into cardiac arrest and was left with irreversible nerve damage.
Doctors at the hospital discovered that she had 200 grams of salt in her blood, which is five times the lethal dose.
They tried to bring the sodium levels in her blood – but the change was too rapid, which resulted in her being left brain dead.

A California man literally coughed up part of his lung after he was hospitalized for heart palpitations.
In a case report from the New England Journal of Medicine, surgeons from the University of California San Francisco Medical Center presented the case of a 36-year-old patient who was admitted to the ICU with chronic heart failure.
Due to his history of poor cardiovascular health, he’d had a pacemaker implanted in case his heart became completely blocked.
However, throughout his first week in the hospital, he coughed up blood and mucus and, during an intense coughing spell, he managed to expectorate an intact cast of the bronchial tree before he died the following week.

A mother has given birth to a healthy baby girl after surgeons implanted a womb in her body taken from a dead person.
The birth, in Brazil, is the first reported involving a deceased donor womb transplant.
Ten previous attempts, in the US, Czech Republic and Turkey, to achieve a live birth using a womb taken from a dead individual, had all ended in failure.
The first birth after a womb transplant from a living donor took place in Sweden in September 2013.
Since then there have been 39 such procedures resulting in 11 live births.
The recipient in the ground-breaking latest case involving a dead donor was a 32-year-old woman born without a womb due to a rare genetic disorder.
In September 2016 she was given an unexpected chance of motherhood after undergoing the womb transplant at the Hospital das Clinicas in Sao Paulo.
The uterus was taken from a 45-year-old donor who had died from

A heartbroken mother has revealed her six-week-old son died just four days after being struck down by meningitis.
Georgia Higginbottom cradled her baby, Oscar Nally, for eight hours until he died, after his life support machine was switched off.
Miss Higginbottom’s only child had no visible symptoms of meningitis, such as the tell-tale rash. She took him to hospital after hearing a ‘shrill cry’.
Pictures from a scan showed ‘every single part of his brain was black’, and he was diagnosed with Group B streptococcal meningitis, the main cause of meningitis in babies.
Ahead of Oscar’s funeral today, Miss Higginbottom, from Blackpool, is warning other parents to be vigilant and spot the signs of meningitis.

If your baby is not responding to you and you think they are unresponsive try to see if they react when you gently tap or flick the sole of their foot.
If they do not wake up or respond to you they are likely to be unresponsive.
Check to see if they are still breathing normally. If they are unresponsive and not breathing normally open their airway and check their breathing again by looking for chest movement, listening for the sounds of normal breathing and seeing if you can feel their breath on your cheek.
If they are not breathing normally, you need to start CPR straight away.
If someone is with you, get them to call 999 or 112 for emergency help.
If you’re on your own, you need to give one minute’s worth of CPR before you can call for help.
