Designated Survivor has been one of the most exciting shows this season. President Kirkman has faced many obstacles as he’s tried to find out who blew up the US Capitol and rebuild the government. Kirkman believes he captured the man responsible for the bombing, but we’ve learned through the FBI investigation, that’s not the case.
MacLeish survived for a reason. I’m confused as to how a secret bomb shelter could have been built inside the Capitol. It almost seems implausible, but I’ve been trying to go with it.
MacLeish is obviously working for someone powerful. Is that someone domestic or foreign? I haven’t figured it out and, every week, it drives me crazy, especially when MacLeish is on the screen.
I only hope Kirkman and his staff figure out that something isn’t right about MacLeish before he’s named the vice president. It’s quite apparent that vice president isn’t enough. Whoever is behind MacLeish wants him to be president, which means Kirkman’s life is in danger.
From the previews, it looks like the FBI is going to enlighten Kirkman about MacLeish. I hope that’s the case because his staff is ready to make him vice president based on some cursory check done by someone Aaron knows. I don’t trust Aaron. Why is he so eager to have MacLeish named vice president? He can’t even wait for the FBI’s investigation. It’s suspicious.
As you can see, I have lots of questions and no answers yet. Like Secrets and Lies, another one of my favorite shows, I get a new nugget of information each week, but then I’m left with more questions. I guess we’ll find out on Wednesday night if MacLeish is named vice president.
Do you think MacLeish will be vice president?
