ABC TV series “Designated Survivor” is finally progressing the story of Season 1. After airing several episodes in which everyone was questioning Tom Kirkman’s presidency, this week saw the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development make difficult decisions, decisions that would define his leadership skills during a crisis.

What will happen next in “Designated Survivor”?

The President (Kiefer Sutherland) will finally breathe a sigh of relief after catching the leader of a terrorist group named Al-Sakar. Majid Nassar, this group’s leader, claimed that he was responsible for the attack on the Capitol. Of course, “Designated Survivor” fans know all too well that Nassar was just a space goat.

FBI Agent Hannah Wells (Maggie Q) stumbled upon a shocking discovering this week: Congressman Peter MacLeish (Ashely Zukerman) knew that the Capitol was being bombed and hid in a bomb shelter recently constructed inside the building moments before the explosion occurred.

President Kirkman will realize that the real terrorist is still out there when he attends a Governors Summit in The White House. The promo shows him shaking hands with some of the most powerful people in America and enjoying his time as the nation’s leader since he took over the Oval Office.

However, just when Kirkman is giving a moving speech at the summit, shots are fired.

Before the attack, Chief of Staff Aaron Shore (Adan Canto) and the President’s special advisor, Emily Rhodes (Italia Ricci), ask MacLeish whether he is interested in taking the position of Vice President.

Meanwhile, Wells continues investigating the Capitol bombings and makes a shocking discovery.

Unfortunately, the next episode of “Designated Survivor,” titled “The Interrogation,” will not air until next to next week. No episode will air next week.

Catch a brand new episode of “Designated Survivor” on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
