Designated Survivor S1 EP9 The Blueprint


Designated Survivor is an American political drama television series created by David Guggenheim, and starring Kiefer Sutherland, airing on ABC. The project skipped the pilot stage and was ordered straight to series on December 14, 2015, followed by a formal announcement on May 6, 2016. The first season premiered on September 21, 2016, with a full season order of 22 episodes coming eight days later.


On the night of the State of the Union address, an explosion claims the lives of the President and all members of his Cabinet except for U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkman, who has been named the designated survivor. Kirkman is immediately sworn in as President, unaware that the attack is just the beginning of what is to come.

When classified government documents are leaked online, President Kirkman searches for the party responsible only to find that they have taken refuge inside a foreign embassy and are beyond even his reach. Meanwhile, Agent Hannah Wells races furiously to gather evidence of MacLeish's involvement in the conspiracy before he can be confirmed as the country's next Vice President.

The House elections have concluded, Kimble has been confirmed Speaker, and the Congressional hearings have begun to confirm Peter MacLeish as Vice-President. Internal Affairs is leading an investigation on Jason, which places Hannah in a difficult position as being implicated along with him. With Chuck the only other person that she trusts, Hannah, with Chuck's help, continues to delve into MacLeish's background, the key to his connection to the Capitol bombing, as told to her by her unknown source, being something to do with 11:14pm. Kimble, who wants to take down both Kirkman and MacLeish in her quest for power, may prove to be useful to Hannah. Meanwhile, a man named Gabriel Thompson has managed to smuggle out some classified NSA documents. He slowly starts to post some of those documents on Wikileaks, those documents which discredit many members of the previous administration, but not Tom. As such, Thompson's motives are unclear. When more documents are released, it hits Tom a little closer to home home, albeit indirectly, although it could have profound effects on the running of his administration. By this time, Thompson has taken asylum in the Venezuelan Embassy, it a country that has no extradition treaty with the US. However, Aaron thinks he knows at least what Thompson is after by the nature of the documents that he has released.
