This week, President Kirkman on “Designated Survivor” was forced to make some of his riskiest decisions as President in regards to using the military, and the one thing that comes with that is of course scrutiny. If the mission is successful, it can be seen as a significant victory for his status as a competent leader. However, if something goes haywire, what we could see instead is the character in some pretty serious trouble moving forward as more and more people will cast doubt on his legitimacy as a leader.
Unfortunately, you’re going to have to wait until October 26 to see the aftermath of what happened with Kirkman and Algeria. Given that (at the moment) there is no scheduled episode of the show on October 19, you’re going to be waiting for seven more days after that to see what’s next. “The Mission” is the title for this installment, and the synopsis below gives you a little bit more information regarding what is next:
“Realizing his attempts at diplomacy with Algeria have failed, President Kirkman makes the difficult decision of sending Navy SEALs on a mission that will define his presidency. Meanwhile, as the investigation into the Capitol bombing continues, Agent Hannah Wells discovers more secrets than answers.”
What the show has going for it at the moment is a tremendous amount of buzz and a great performance from Kiefer Sutherland. Beyond that, what they still need to prove is that they are capable of paying off big stories. This storyline needs a few more twists and hands, and if it ends in a satisfying way, we know that it’ll be able to deliver for almost anything in the future. We’re excited to find out more about that in the weeks ahead.
