Designated Survivor is clearly one of the best new shows of the season. The winter finale left me wanting more, but unfortunately I have to wait until March.
If you follow my blog, I wrote a post of couple of weeks ago asking if Peter MacLeish would be the vice president. We now know the answer is yes. Congress confirmed him, even though Hannah Wells found proof that shows he’s a war criminal, not a hero.
Hannah is on her way to the U.S. Capitol with the evidence when someone hits her. She escapes before the assassin can kill her, but leaves her evidence behind in her car. She then enlists the help of her colleague, Chuck, and discovers that Charlie Langdon, the former chief of staff, is behind the mysterious calls Wells has been getting. Before she is able to get answers from Langdon, someone tries to kill him and, amid the chaos, he escapes.
Hannah kills the guy who tried to kill Langdon and finds a key card on him. Using his tech expertise, Chuck finds out that the key card opens an office on the seventh floor of a building that is near the Capitol. Hannah puts all of the clues together and figures out they are going to kill President Kirkman at the swearing in ceremony so MacLeish can be president.
Hannah goes to the swearing in and sees the window open in the building near the Capitol. She pulls her gun, people start screaming, the secret service go after her, and she fires at the window just as the assassin is about to pull the trigger. The shot takes the assassin by surprise and he fires. Obviously, his aim will be off because of the shock of being shot at, which means I’m left with one big question. Who did he shoot?
I wish I had the answer. I could speculate, but I won’t. I hope he shot MacLeish, but I have a feeling he didn’t.
What did you think of the winter finale? Any guesses as to who was shot?
