Designated Survivor – Bombshell (1×20)

President Kirkman tackled on his very first NATO summit and it was more proof that our United States needs to ditch Trump and elect him ASAP.

Moss joins Kirkman on the trip as his adviser, informing him on what the international arms reduction should look like. If there’s anyone that can help it’s someone who’s done this once or twice. Their preliminary meeting with the countries is in good standing until the next day when good ole’ Abe Leonard publishes his “Al-Sakar Not Behind Capitol Bombing” expose. If they didn’t, who did? And why is the President lying to the public?

Moss and Seth, who has recovered from the overexcitement and sickness of his first Air Force one ride, tell Kirkman to just deny the allegations but he simply can’t do that because “they’re true.”

This puts him in a bad place at the NATO meeting, especially with France’s Prime Minister, who isn’t too happy with his “can’t say anything” stance because she believes that the only way to trust the US is if they are transparent.  The other countries jump on board and pretty much hit pause on Kirkman’s initiative.

Kirkman knows that he has to convince France to be on his side so he presents his case again, this time just to the Prime Minister and she’s pleased with the idealism he executes. The trip may didn’t go their way but at least he was able to prove himself to his peers and prove that he was worthy of the position, despite not earning it and starting off as a lower-level cabinet member who ascended to the presidency because he was the last person alive in the government.

Abe is pleased with outing the truth, not knowing that all of his intel is being fed to him by the people that are behind the bombing. Seriously dude, 101 of journalism – never trust sources that are too eager to talk. And those ‘sources’ believe Abe has “served his purpose.” In other words, they are going to off him.

Before they get to him though, the FBI summons him to the White House. “Oh now they want to talk,” he retorts. I will admit, everyone waved him off when it was convenient for them but now, they all want to get to him for answers.

The FBI these answers will bring them closer to finding Agent Wells, who is thankfully not getting sea-sick while being held captive. She makes a break from one of the containers she’s being held in and navigates into the control room, where she successful radios a distress call. Her bold move proves risky because she’s caught by the “bad guys” who knock her out again, this time, not taking any more chances. Catalan confronts her and hands her Jason Atwood’s ring. “You took my family, I took yours,” he exclaims, much to her dismay. I guess that means Atwood really is kaput….

The Navy alerts Foretell about the call and he demands they do a better job at finding the ship that doesn’t want to be found. When they figure out it’s docking at the port of Baltimore, he gets there just in time but unfortunately, finds nothing useful.

That’s because she’s already been relocated to LAND. Catalan is the mastermind behind a Capitol bombing, I’m pretty sure he knows that if she successfully radioed for help, there were teams looking for her.

We then flash to Hanna, who wakes up in a van filled with explosives. As she opens the door, she finds herself in a parking garage at the FBI headquarters. As a team of agents approaches, she realizes the bombs are set to go off in 3 minutes. “Don’t come any closer,” she warns.

What’s the game plan here? Obviously Catalan knows that no one will assume she’s a terrorist.  Hanna and Atwood both believed that other landmarks were next on the terrorist’s list but did they use her kidnapping to veer the FBI away from their next plan aka bombing the headquarters? This is getting more interesting by the second – no pun intended.
