Alright, guys. Last night, we got the new preview/spoiler clip (below) in from the ABC folks for their upcoming "Designated Survivor" episode 17 of season 1. And judging from it, it looks like we're going to see a whole lot of drama going down in this one as Kirkman is spotted, getting crazy angry at one point when these folks push him to his limits! We see a couple of confrontations take place. One of them features something going down between Aaron and Emily. There's another confrontation between Kirkman and Jack, and more. As previously reported, this episode is labeled: "The Ninth Seat."

Broken government

The new preview clip, starts off showing us a new scene that features an intense meeting going on with President Kirkman and company.

He's spotted, telling them that without a Supreme Court, we're a broken government, so that definitely doesn't sound too good at all. Shortly after that, we get a scene that features Jack Bowman in action. He tells Kirkman that his staff has been looking into his choices for who should take over the Chief Justice spot, and have made some very disturbing discoveries. Uh oh! What could these crazy discoveries be? Unfortunately, they weren't revealed in this clip, so it looks like we'll have to wait for this episode to air before we find that out.

Closer to the truth

Next, we get a new scene that shows Abe, getting all up in Seth's face to tell him: "I'm getting closer to the truth." After that, we see John Forstell in action, saying that someone's feeding him classified information.

Following that, they take us back to that scene with Kirkman and Jack. He tells Jack, " I'm not going to let you hold our justice system hostage." So, it definitely looks like the tensions between those two, will just keep on brewing.

Aaron and Emily

Next, we see that Aaron will also be in action in this episode as he's seen, asking Emily: "are you really going to play hardball?" Finally, we get a flurry of different scenes that lead up to the big one where Kirkman is spotted, totally losing his patience with these folks, slamming his hands down on the table, standing up and yelling: "I said, take your seats, now!" Wow!

Will they all obey him and get right back in their seats? Or will we see some major defiance go down? Those are the big questions for how that crazy scene will play out. Also, the narration of the clip, said that the threats are mounting, and to never cross Potus. It looks pretty intense, guys. Be sure to check it out, below, and stay tuned. As previously reported, episode 17 is scheduled to air on Thursday night, April 19th,2017 at 9pm central time on ABC. Stay tuned.
