DESIGNATED SURVIVOR

It’s all hands on deck on this week’s episode of Designated Survivor as Kirkman struggles with how to present the news of Peter McLeish’s murder.

While appraising Emily, Aaron and Seth of the situation, Kirkman is warned that the scanty details surrounding McLeish’s death will be “blood in the water” to the hungry Press.

In fact, Wednesday’s episode, titled “Backfire,” will play into the notion of what the Press should and shouldn’t know when an investigative journalist shocks the White House by revealing classified information during a press briefing, leaving Seth struggling to contain the damage from the leaked story.

Meanwhile, Hannah will unearth a key connection between MacLeish and the conspiracy.

Catch a sneak peek of Kirkman’s private meeting with his team below.

“Backfire” airs Wednesday, March 22 (10:00–11:00 p.m. EDT) on ABC.

Designated Survivor stars Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, Natascha McElhone as Alex Kirkman, Adan Canto as Aaron Shore, Italia Ricci as Emily Rhodes, LaMonica Garrett as Mike Ritter with Kal Penn as Seth Wright and Maggie Q as Hannah Wells.

“Backfire” was written by Sang Kyu Kim & Pierluigi D. Cothran.
