DESIGNATED SURVIVOR: Kirkman Weighs the Human Cost of a Surgical Strike in “The Mission”
We wouldn’t want to be Algeria right now.
At least not the Algeria depicted in ABC’s Designated Survivor, a country harboring the perpetrator of the most devastating act of terrorism in the history of the United States.
Despite Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) attempts at diplomacy (the prez even went so far as to fire the gung-ho General Cochrane last week just as he was scrambling an unsanctioned offensive against their North African ally), it seems Algeria is still loath to give up the location of terrorist leader Majid Nassar Al Sakar.
This week “The Mission” sees Kiklman tasked with the decision to send Navy SEALs on a mission that will “define his presidency,” according to ABC.
Meanwhile, as the investigation into the Capitol bombing continues, Agent Hannah Wells (Maggie Q), who has come up empty handed in recent weeks, discovers more secrets than answers.
We’ve got a sneak peek clip from “The Mission” to share with you. The somber clip shows Kirkman weighing the human cost of the action he is about to undertake. Of course, the wider question is, will this tactical strike make or break his presidency?
Catch “The Mission” on tonight’s Designated Survivor, Wednesday, October 26 on ABC.
