It's the day before the elections for the House of Representatives, the act which Tom sees as an important step in getting the running of government back in proper working order, both in reality and in the public mindset. However, something that happens in the Kansas City area threatens the elections. Even if the investigators at the Department of Homeland Security are able to discover the person or organization behind what is happening in Kansas City, Tom has to weigh the pros and cons of holding the elections based on the perception and reality of public safety. Meanwhile, the White House press corps has gotten wind that Majid Nassar was murdered in custody, something that Tom told Seth to confirm if the question was ever directly asked. Part of the fallout of that news for Tom is dealing with Kimble, who Tom had not previously told, as he wanted to have the details behind the assassination first. That places Jason on the hot seat, he who is dealing with what to do about his meeting with the mysterious and calculating dark-haired woman, who has Luke and is threatening to kill him if Jason doesn't follow her orders. Hannah, who can tell that Jason is dealing with something out of the ordinary, latches on to what she believes is Jason's code for help. Hannah hopes to provide that help with Chuck's assistance. She believes the key is the unknown person who first pointed her in the direction of Room 105 and MacLeish working for the other side. And rumor gets to Leo about Tom possibly not being his biological father. This rumor may threaten the Kirkman family, as well as Seth's professional and burgeoning personal relationship with Lisa Jordan.
