This week on “Designated Survivor,” President Kirkman’s first international summit derailed as Agent Wells discovered a major Bombshell.

When we last saw the show, Kimble’s hardships continued, and she was tired of her life. Finally, she got a position as Speaker of the House and accepted the challenge in no time. She needed a job to run her family. On the other hand, Kirkman prepared for the final summit, and Agent Wells found herself in an uncertain situation. Alex was confused about whether or not to bring the children back to Washington.

In “Bombshell,” the President’s international summits finally begin, and Abe Leonard publishes a couple of articles in the local journal.
