So far on “Designated Survivor,” we’ve seen President Kirkman tackle many difficult conflicts, whether they be ones regarding the media, issues of trust with the American people, or even conspiracy theories that this entire process was a part of some elaborate power-grab on his part to ascend to the highest office via unlikely means.
Moving into Wednesday’s episode “The Enemy,” some of the issues domestically will remain for Kiefer Sutherland’s character — but he better prepare for more external trouble than ever before as the truth behind the attack starts to be revealed.
Synopsis – “Kirkman learns who is behind the attack and needs to grapple not only with the prospect of war, but brewing domestic troubles as well. Kirkman taps Emily to monitor the domestic situation, while Alex may be in for more than she bargains for when she seeks out help from Hookstraten.”
Everyone is still in over their head, and it’s almost impossible to say anything otherwise when you look at the situation these characters are in at present. Nobody a few episodes ago was expecting to be where they are now, and they have to figure it out as they go. The last thing that anyone should want at present is a mutiny where we start to see characters turn on one another. Yet, it’s a possibility that they definitely are going to have to contend with as unrest begins, as does the feeling of “why does this guy deserve this?”. Suffice it to say, there will be plenty of people outside the cabinet who feel that they are equally capable of doing the job that Kirkman can.
