Creators of The Blacklist, the popular NBC crime thriller series set to return for its fifth season on Sept. 27, shot a scene Friday at the LIU Post Equestrian Center in Brookville.

The stables were made to look like a horse ranch in Ireland for the scene, which included actress Poorna Jagannathan and actor Sean Gromley, a source told the Press.

“The equestrian center at LIU Post works perfectly as a replica of the Irish countryside,” said the source with knowledge of the scene who asked not to be named. “The beauty of this campus is unmatched.”

It’s not the first time the drama starring James Spader has used somewhere on Long Island as a set. It used Youngs Farm of Old Brookville for a scene set in Iowa in 2015 and Bayville Bridge the year before that, Newsday reported. The show also used the Long Beach Bridge for a dramatic shootout scene in its pilot, the Press has reported.

Film and TV crews have increasingly used locations on LI as sets for their productions—some of which won Oscars—over the years to the point that some call the region “Hollywood East.”

Spoiler Alert for those who haven’t watched the Season 4 finale:

Now that we know Red is really Liz’s dad, and Mr. Kaplan has pretty much dismantled his empire, how will their relationship (and the FBI’s) be altered? Will Aram and Samar finally be together? And who the hell is the skeleton in Tom’s suitcase?
