Designated Survivor, episode four

Hannah gets questioned by local police about the dead contractor. She plays the federal investigation card and then Forstell about it. That’s not the only issue. There is a trucker blockade at the Mexican border. It’s been going on for days and a Mexican trucker gets fed up. He breaks through the gate and gets shot and killed.

Now Kirkman and company have to deal with this. Emily meets with the Mexican ambassador and he’s willing to wait it out. Lyor meets with the truckers. It’s no use. Seth tries to give a briefing but it doesn’t go well. Aaron gets called out for being a Mexican-American and not standing up for his heritage.

White House counsel meets with Hannah about the potential case against Alex’s mother. She tells Hannah that she will have to talk to Alex about it. Aaron thinks he is meeting with a senator but ends up talking to his cousin, a newly hired aide instead. He refuses to work like that.

Emily is forced to deal with an investigation into a broken vase. Hannah sits down with Alex. It doesn’t go well. Alex thinks the possibility of her mother being involved in some sort of scheme is ridiculous.

Aaron and Emily update Kirkman on the trade negotiations. It is not going well and now officials are calling Kirkman out on tv. Aaron feels like he is being pulled in two directions because of the negotiations. Seth laughs and tells him that will never end. Aaron gets the word of the senator that she will back the agreement publicly.

The truck driver’s wife holds a press conference. Lyor has to do some work here. They need to find someone to be the face of the agreement. Alex talks to her mother about Hannah’s accusation. She thinks it is preposterous but her mother says it’s true. And that she would do it again.

Kirkman sees the widow panicking before their planned press conference. He calls it off and tells Seth and Lyor to handle it. Lyor says that it’s not him and leaves. Kirkman meets with the widow and they talk about her husband. Emily comes in and gives him the file about the broken vase. It accuses his daughter but he asks her and she says no. He tells the investigator as much.

Alex gets news. Her mother is being subpoenaed by the FBI. She tells Kirkman the whole thing and he assures her that it is okay. Then he meets with the ambassador to Mexico. Turns out he owns the company that the dead trucker worked for. Kirkman throws down.

Aaron fights with his cousin about being used and being Mexican-American. She does not back down. Kirkman meets with the union leader. He says that he will back the deal but it lacks longevity. Kirkman gets an idea.

He asks his old friend to keep plants open on both sides of the border. It will buy time and maintain jobs. The investigator has figured out who broke the vase. Lyor. The deal is done. No one is thrilled so it’s a win. Aaron goes back home and sees his family.

Hannah meets with Forstell again. She’s pissed about the subpoena but he doesn’t want to hear it. He has new information about the contractor that was found dead. He signed a huge deal and it was connected to Lloyd.

I missed Chuck in this one. It wasn’t really investigation heavy though so that was expected. I don’t care about Lyor so the side story about the vase was a waste. I’m glad that Aaron got some more screentime and got to respect his roots.

Designated Survivor, episode three

Kirkman’s mother-in-law is living at the White House while her house is still a crime scene. She wants to go home. Kirkman gets summoned about a serious virus spreading throughout the country. It’s in Louisiana now but in three days will be throughout half the country. He delegates to Aaron and Emily and Tammy (Alicia Coppola) leaves for boots on the ground.

The new lawyer is being thrown to the wolves right away. She has to mediate an argument about a confederate statue in Tennessee. The two sides go back and forth. She can’t win. Hannah and Damien are still trying to figure out what Lloyd broke into Kirkman’s mother-in-laws house for. Chuck has tracked down the file he was sending to the cloud when he died but it is going to take a bit to uncorrupt it.

Hannah and Damien go back and walk the house. They find a 30-year-old heart transplant file that they think Lloyd left. They don’t know why. Tammy updates Aaron and Emily. So far just more sick people, no vaccine is working yet. Seth and Lyor have an animal at the White House for a photo op, until they find out it’s a frog. Then the photo op is done.

Lyor checks in with the lawyer. He points out that the optics are important. A scientist comes in to talk about possible treatment for the virus. It’s untested and not approved by the FDA but Kirkman had counsel write up a document absolving the scientist of responsibility. He’s not happy but he will move on it. Hannah and Damien have to talk to Alex about the papers they found. Hannah gives her as little information as possible.

The transplant was one of the first in the DC area. Alex doesn’t remember too much but she knows her father was down far on the list and it all came together at the last second. Aaron gets a call. The scientist reneged on the deal and sold the drug to the highest bidder. Counsel takes it to court and actually wins.

Chuck presents what he’s gotten from the cloud to Hannah and Damien. And glares at Damien. Rev. Tramer Dale (Ron Canada) tells off the white girl ranting about racism. He wants the statue to stay. So it will stay. Kirkman gets an update from Tammy. Drugs have arrived and will be administered soon.

Damien and Hannah move on a warehouse with little security. They have no backup. There is a door that Hannah approaches. Damien sees that it is rigged and saves her. He gets banged up in the process. Seth updates the press on the virus. He does good but it might not be enough. Tammy updates. The drug works but the virus is still spreading fast. They need more. Kirkman tells her there is no more. She tells him she thinks the scientist lied.

Lyor hangs out with the frog for a while and then stirs up trouble at the statue negotiations. Hannah reports to Aaron that she can’t update him on the Lloyd investigation because it involved Kirkman’s family. Kirkman meets with Dale and thanks him for his compromise. They moved the statue. The scientist is back. Him and Kirkman fight. He won’t knuckle under. Kirkman comes up with a plan.

He calls Dale back in. He goes on tv ripping the scientist apart. He’s got no choice but to give over the rest of his stockpile. Damien has 12 hours to leave the country after the explosion incident. Hannah walks him out. Chuck is not happy. Kirkman is thrilled to meet the frog and wants a picture.

Hannah and Chuck go over the cloud files. Alex’s father got a heart transplant around the same time her mother handled the paperwork for a defense contract. There seems to be a bribe involved secure her father the heart. They have to go talk to the defense contractor. Kirkman gets another update from Tammy.

Everything is running smoothly with the medication, except she doesn’t look well. Turns out she tested the medication on herself to get the dosage levels. She’s in kidney failure. Kirkman wants to bring her home but she wants to stay through till the end.

Kirkman basically has the air force kidnap Tammy and bring her home. Emily congratulates the attorney on a job well done. Kirkman and Mike talk about what Dale has seen and where the country is headed. Chuck doesn’t understand why Lloyd was so interested in something that happened 30 years earlier. They get to the contractor’s house and find him dead.

I want Hannah and Chuck to get together. I’m rooting for them so I’m glad Damien went back home. I liked the frog. It was interesting but it seemed weird that Aaron, Seth and Emily were hardly around. I don’t know how invested I am into all these conspiracy theories. I miss Hookstraten.

 

Designated Survivor, episode two

Lloyd is on the move in DC. Chuck updates Aaron, Hannah and Damien. They know Lloyd is in town. They just need to find out why. Aaron tells Kirkman, Emily and Lyor. They decide to tell Congress but not the public. It’s a formality though and that pisses Senator Cameron Feller () off.

Hannah and Damien talk to Lloyd’s son and it takes some pressure but he admits that he saw his father earlier that day. They use the lead and track the car Lloyd stole at the airport. It’s easy. Too easy. It’s not him.

Seth updates the press. He tells them that he wrote the correspondents dinner. A reporter asks about Feller being at the White House. It’s a set up. Feller leaked that he was there but not why. Alex’s mother Eva Booker () is at the residence trying on dresses for the dinner. She vetoes the options and heads home with Mike.

Kirkman is not interested in playing ball with Feller. He tells him as much and puts him on notice. Chuck and Hannah keep looking for Lloyd. They track him down at Booker’s place. Hannah and Damien get there but he’s gone. Booker relays her story to Hannah before Mike takes her back to the White House. Forsenics finds latent Lloyd prints. Hannah wants the whole place combed.

Aaron updates Kirkman. He’s pissed cause now things are personal. Hannah and Damien are still tracking Lloyd. Chuck is on the phone trying to work logistics. They ID a Browning Reed site nearby that was declared a Superfund. They get there and Damien gets shot. Hannah chases him and corners him in a bunker.

Lloyd sends a message to Kirkman. He has saran gas and will distribute it in DC if Kirkman doesn’t pardon him during the speech at the dinner. Kirkman and his team talk strategy. The general wants to neutralize Lloyd with a bomb. Emily doesn’t think that’s legal. Aaron wants to take him alive to question him.

To keep up appearances, Kirkman heads to the dinner and talks to Lyor on the walk about how important it is to keep calm. The military is trying to survey Lloyd but don’t have much luck. Hannah and Damien have experience though and they snoop around a bit. They find the escape hatch.

Emily and Senator Cowling (Rochelle Aytes) chat and Emily mentions that a drone strike is on the table. Kirkman is making small talk when Emily interrupts. They are going to court to block the drone option. Aaron argues with Cowling. The judge takes a moment to review. Aaron asks Cowling why. She says that she knows Kirkman is a good man but the next guy might not be. She has to set a precedent.

In the situation room, Kirkman, Emily, Forstell and the general talk about the plan. Kirkman figures it out. This is about revenge. He reaches out to Lloyd in the bunker. Lloyd blames the government for stealing his family and the people for letting them. Kirkman suggets taking them to court. Lloyd says that they can’t judge him but they’ll have to make a decision too.

Hannah and Damien are walking through the tunnels. They’ve hit a few dead ends but eventually find the way. And promptly set off a trip wire. It makes it a lot more likely he’s got the gas. Aaron talks to opposing counsel and then the recess is over. They come up with a loophole.

The clock is winding down. Kirkman has seconds and as it stands the likelihood of attack is 50/50. He orders the strike. They find Lloyd’s remains but no nerve gas. Kirkman has to tell the American people. He calls off the speech and heads back to the Oval to address the people. Emily and Lyor are opposed to it.

Kendra Danes (Zoe McLellan) who represented the Senate in court is called to the Oval to talk to Kirkman. He offers her a job as White House counsel and she accepts. He heads to the residence and chats with his daughter before going to bed.

Hannah and Damien are still at the strike site. They found Lloyd’s computer. He was uploading something to the cloud when the strike hit.

I’m surprised that they killed off Lloyd so quickly. It’s weird. I feel like Damien is probably a bad guy. Hannah will fall for him and then he will betray everyone. Seth needs to shave.

Designated Survivor, episode one

Kirkman and Mike are in the rebuilt Capitol. It’s been a year but the critics are saying that his presidency is in ruins. He’s bankrupting the government and everyone at the White House just nods along for him.

Emily and Lyor Boone (Paulo Costanzo) are making their way to see Kirkman. He’s a political director and he’s good on paper but Kirkman wants to know what he thinks. They have a candid discussion and Kirkman agrees to a trial basis. Aaron comes in. There’s a situation. A hijacked Russian plane in Chicago. The plans in place are not enough. Something must be done.

Hannah is partying alone in Amsterdam. A guy tries to buy her a drink but she’s too drunk. He takes her home. It was a ploy. She knocks him out and calls some information in to Chuck before moving on the lead. She finds a body and the guy she knocked out sneaks up on her. Turns out he’s MI6. Agent Damian Rennett (Ben Lawson). They are both chasing Lloyd so they start working together since they are closing in.

Aaron and Emily consult with Kirkman about the plane. They give him a passenger manifest. He tells them it’s a regional conflict that they are getting dragged into. He sends them to talk to the ambassadors.

Seth is getting courted for a PR job. He has to go give a press conference about the plane situation. He’s cranky. After talking to the media and Emily he goes to his office and finds Boone there. He’s made some edits to the press release.

Alex is waiting for Kirkman when he gets to his office. He has an old friend on the plane. Someone he fell out with years ago and now he’s worried the guy will become a bargaining chip in the hostage situation.

It’s been eight hours of negotiations. Things are getting worse. Emily and Aaron are struggling to keep things running smoothly. Seth is just over it. He’s hanging up on reporters now. Aaron gets back to his office and has a chat with Boone. He leaves and Aaron’s phone rings. Hannah is checking in.

Kirkman tries to get the UN to negotiate on the plans but they can’t. Aaron has new intel though. Turns out the hijackers were hired to basically start a war. Seth and Emily talk and she finds out that he feels guilty for not being able to spin things for Kirkman.

The ambassadors meet with Kirkman and it’s time for hardball. He tells them that when things go down, their names will be attached. Hannah is still on the hunt for Lloyd. She finds the computers he bought and plane tickets. He’s in the wind again.

Seth holds another presser and it’s positive. Afterward, he apologizes for his attitude. Seth and Aaron want to go to Kirkman about Boone. They don’t like him. Emily tries to stop them but can’t. However, when they get to Kirkman’s office they find a calm, thoughtful Boone that they can get on board with.

There’s been a development. The hostages were all released before a faulty oxygen tank exploded. Two people were still on the plane, one of which was Kirkman’s friend. He addresses the staff and tells them that their service and sacrifice is worth it because America deserves it.

Alex comforts Kirkman. He then calls his friend’s widow. Lloyd is on the move. He comes out of a metro station… in Washington DC.

Seth needs a shave. Also, Aaron’s hair is puffy now and Emily doesn’t seem to have a handle on her job. Boone was annoying but if he stays calm it’s okay. I like that Hannah is out in the field with the callbacks to Chuck. I don’t have much use for her MI6 buddy though. I didn’t realize Lloyd would still be relevant this season but it makes sense.

Designated Survivor, episode twenty-one

Hannah doesn’t listen to the cops. She gets back in the van and drives away so that the bomb goes off in the water and not near people. Mike updates Kirkman and he says to bring her to the White House. The FBI is questioning her when Forstell shows up and takes her under orders of the president.

At the White House, Hannah and Forstell brief Kirkman, Mike and Moss. The people on the ship are revealing what they know so Forstell wants to use that but Moss thinks they should bring in the big guns. Kirkman agrees.

A team is read in to go after Lloyd. They want him alive. Kirkman watches the news and then talks to Forstell about what this new group is up to. Bowman is on tv ripping on Kirkman but the other guest, Aaron, is adamant in his defense. The strike team is still en route.

Lazano is on the move in the city. Lloyd and his congressman crony keep updated. He has “the package” and is “en route.”

They get to the house and move in. It’s too late though. There is no sign of anyone. There’s just a secret tunnel.

Hannah orders for all sorts of BOLO type stuff on Lloyd but it doesn’t matter. A bunch of false info floods in immediately.

Seth is avoiding the press since there is no comment. It doesn’t work well though. Abe Leonard is waiting in his office. There’s a new story. Kirkman wants to meet with Leonard.

Emily talks to Alex on the phone. She wants him to act more like a politician but it isn’t happening. She also misses their lunches.

Moss tells Kirkman that he has already had to weather several crises and that one way or another it’ll end soon.

The crony starts to do some techy things and Chuck catches it and calls Mike. The guy wraps up but Chuck knows what happened. Someone just used the digital footprint from the hack to access the Pentagon and create an ID.

Lozano rolls up to security. He uses the new ID to get onto Pentagon property.

Kirkman calls in Aaron. He reads him in on what’s going on and asks for tips on the mole. He wants Aaron to go over his records from the prior administration.

Mike and Chuck update Hannah on the ID situation. She heads there to try and find him. They have the Pentagon on lockdown. He’s already inside though, in a naval uniform. He’s in some computer room accessing a laptop.

Leonard is in the Oval when Kirkman comes in. They talk about what Leonard will do. Kirkman calls the story incomplete but won’t comment because it is a matter of national security. He wants Leonard to hold the story but won’t press it.

Aaron goes to see the general that Kirkman fired. He wants help and no one knows more about security access.

Hannah calls the Pentagon to get an update on Lozano. No luck yet though because something is scrambling the security cameras. Hannah tells the officer in charge that Lozano knows the building well from his time working there and that they need to find him.

Kirkman gets an update from Aaron. He tells him about the general and Kirkman agrees that he wasn’t responsible.

As she heads to the Pentagon, Hannah sees Lozano. She chases him and calls for backup. She hits him and thinks she has him but he runs. She gives chase on foot and even fires at him. He goes into a house under construction and gets the upper hand. They fight hand to hand and she pushes him through a wall. He falls on some metal rods and dies, but not before telling her it’s not over.

Seth is in his office when Leonard strolls in. He is going to honor his request but not indefinitely.

Chuck is cleaning up when Hannah comes in a bit worse for the wear. She asks about the case and then he heads out but not before telling her that there is an email in her box from Atwood. It’s photos and audio from just before he died.

The mole is walking through the White House when Mike stops him and asks for a word. He turns and Forstell and Hannah are there.

Hannah goes back to Atwood’s office and flashes back to the first time they met.

Kirkman plays the audio for Emily, Aaron and Seth. They’ve got the mole in custody and rounded up more than 2,000 people across the country. He wants to address a joint session to update them. Seth will let the networks know. Kirkman recruits Aaron. They will create a job for him. He also asks Moss to be the designated survivor.

It’s time for his speech. He reveals the truth about what happened at the Capitol. He then talks about how great it is to be an American and that no one needs to make it great again. Everyone in the whole country claps.

They get to the White House. The kids are back and Kirkman gets called to Command. Lozano made the entirety of the Pentagon security system vulnerable and left access available for Lloyd. He can do what he wants with all the security information.

I’m glad that Aaron is still involved. He will probably end up in the Cabinet or something. Where was Hookstraten? Emily is supposed to be a really important part of the administration but she was hardly there at all. She just wants to do lunch? That’s kind of lame. Seth is my favorite. And Abe Leonard.

Designated Survivor, episode twenty

Hannah has escaped but not really cause she’s on a ship. Everyone is looking for her so she’s hiding. She sees a smaller boat transporting weapons

Seth is airsick and Moss is teasing him. Then he goes to see Kirkman. They talk about the summit and arms priorities.

Forstell and mike talk about Hannah and Browning Reed.

Emily is out to drink with some aids. She sees Aaron and goes over to say hello. They talk about Kirkman and Hookstraten. He’s not following her to the cabinet.

Moss explains the game plan for NATO and who the big players are.

On the ship, Hannah is creeping around. She attacks a guy and sends out a mayday signal before more people come after her. Some lackeys rush in and fight her. She’s banged up by the time Lazano corners her with a gun.

Kirkman tells some important foreign leaders about the plan to cut back nukes. It goes well.

Mike brings in Chuck to find out who has been deleting files. Chuck knows some tech things that might help them.

Seth interrupts a conversation between Moss and Kirkman. The Abe Leonard story ran and now people are freaking out. Seth and Emily don’t know how to handle it and Kirkman won’t issue a flat out denial…. because it’s true.

With no other choice, Kirkman reads Moss in on the investigation. Moss is pissedthat he didn’t know and now the allies.

Lloyd watches Leonard on morning shows. He’s mad at some of the story details. He calls the congressman. Leonard has served his purpose.

At the briefing, Seth gets bombarded with questions about the story. He sticks to the party line and then tries to talk NATO.

Forstell gets a call from the coast guard about Hannah’s mayday call. They don’t have answers. He’s headed their way and he wants more info.

Hannah is back in the container on the ship. Lazano comes in and says that since she killed his brother MacLeish, he killed her family. He hands her a wedding band and she cries. He drugs her and she passes out.

Kirkman has to answer to NATO about the article and it doesn’t go well. France tabled the disarmament talk until he’s willing to discuss the issue.

Chuck plants the tracker. Leonard heads into the office and it turns out the FBI wants him to stop by for an interview. He doesn’t want to but his boss gives him no choice.

Emily and Seth talk. She asks about Air Force one and then admits that Moss sent her a photo.

Forstell gets to the coast guard station. No sign of the ship Hannah is on. He tells her to get cracking.

Back in his room Kirkman is going over the agenda. Seth comes in for an update for the pool. They talk about how hard of a day it’s been. Seth gets a call. No go on disarmament. Alex calls Kirkman to talk about what’s going on. She knows it’s true.

Coast guard pulled through. The ship may be docking in Baltimore within the hour. Forstell heads out.

Before the afternoon session Kirkman meets with France. She calls him a dreamer and he agrees. They will talk more at the next summit.

The mole goes after the files. Chuck calls mike to go after him but the guy is smart. He throws them off by cloning his digital fingerprint.

Back on the way to Washington Seth falls asleep on the plane and Kirkman and Moss talk about the trip. It’s just the beginning though because it’s a new kind of trouble back home.

Forstell is moving in on the ship. They take people into custody and search all the containers. No Hannah. Speaking of, she wakes up and realizes she’s surrounded by bombs she finds a door and gets out. She was in a van in the basement of the Hoover building. A countdown on the bombs in the car starts. Agents swarm.

I’m glad that Hannah is back on solid ground. I’m ecstatic that Chuck is back. I don’t really care about the rest of the stuff. It was just setting the stage for next time.

Designated Survivor airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m.

Designated Survivor, episode nineteen

The recently kidnapped Hannah is dumped in a shipping container by Lazano. The container is on a truck that is then taken away. He makes a call.

Emily meets with a Congressman about things to pitch to the president. The man walks out of the room and gets a text that the “package out for delivery.” Lloyd gets the same text.

Alex is helping give a tour to a high school when they get interrupted by Kirkman. Turns out the deceased president’s son is the one in charge of the program that brought the kids there, the program which needs to be renewed by Congress next month. Kirkman will look into it.

Forstell and Mike don’t know where Hannah is. They haven’t heard from her at all. They head to her hotel room and realize that something is amiss.

Seth and Emily talk about Ethics and then the upcoming NATO summit. He is excited to ride on Air Force One.

Hookstraten is at her ethics hearing. She wants them to consider her lifetime of public service.

Mike and Forstell consult the security footage. They see that she was kidnapped and take the news to Kirkman. They update him on Lloyd and the investigation. He tells them to find Hannah.

Atwood gets some high tech gadgets.

Emily and Moss meet with Kirkman and talk about meeting with the French about de-escaltion. They want to decrease their nuclear arsenal and maybe the States should do the same to set an example.

The plates are back. The van Hannah was taken in is burnt out. Forstell is more concerned with why they took her since it wasn’t to kill her. She’s still in the container yelling for Lazano.

Kirkman has some meetings and then meets with Hookstraten. He pledges support and she tells him she is just going to keep going. The arts grants come up and she tells him who to talk to.

Tyler and Alex talk about adjusting to White House life.

Lloyd shows up for his speaking engagement downtown. He is taken through security and asked to remove his pin. The security guard swaps it out. He leaves and talks to Atwood. Now Lloyd is really under survelilance.

The new Congressman Saldua comes in to talk to Kirkman, who is pitching the arts grant. Saldua isn’t interested. He’s sick of back-room dealing and wants to focus on the maths and sciences. He will look into it on the next budget.

Lloyd is wrapping up his speech and Forstell and company are ready for him to roll out.

Hookstraten looks to be losing in her ethics hearing after Aaron meets with his cousin to talk about the vibe of the committee. He says they have to drag it out until they can swing public opinion. Now she’s got an idea.

The speech is over. Atwood is following and Forstell’s team is too.

The team is meeting in the Oval to talk about what’s what. Emily is working on getting support for the grant.

Atwood sees the congressman that was at the White House with Emily on Lloyd’s porch.
Saldua is talking to Hookstraten. He wants her old school way of doing things out. She offers to step aside if he pushes the arts grant through.

The tech comes in handy. Atwood hears about Hannah and their work with Leonard. They know the feds are looking at the targets they found blueprints for. They have operational control. A twig snaps and Atwood gets jumpy. He starts looking around and finds a deer. Her starts to let his guard down. Turns around. Two shots to the chest. Lazano is there.

Mike and Forstell notice that files are being deleted. If they figure out who is doing it, they find the mole.

Alex talks to Kirkman about bringing the kids back. He says not yet. Hookstraten comes by. She tells him that she is stepping down. She did make one last move though. The arts grant. He says that he won’t accept it and that he has a way to make things work.

Seth is on the phone with his mom talking about going on the plane. Then he and Emily chat about it too.

Kirkman meets with Mike and Forstell about tracking the files. Mike wants him to pull out of the NATO summit but he won’t. Just bump up security.

Hannah is still trapped. They bring her a sandwich and she says she can’t reach. The guard loosens her chains.

Alex and Kirkman hug. He’s upset and she tells him to just tell her something. The Hannah situation is weighing on him.

It’s time for the choir concert. Kirkman tells Tyler that the grant will be passed. He gives his remarks and announces his nominee for Secretary of Education. Kimble Hookstraten.

Hannah is a ninja. She uses the underwire from her bra to undo the cuffs.

It’s time to head to NATO. Kirkman makes his way onto the plane and Seth stops at the base of the stairs to snap a picture. Moss stops him. Sends him up to take a great picture with the president to send to his mom.

When the guard comes back to drug Hannah, she pushes the needle into him and steals his keys. She runs away only to find she is on a huge shipping barge.

Seth though. He’s probably the bad guy because he is just so adorable with the whole sending pictures to his mom stuff. I can’t. Hannah is awesome and I’m sure she will figure something out. It’s a shame they killed Atwood but he really wasn’t serving a purpose. Saldua is going to be a problem for a while.

Designated Survivor is new Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
