Good mid season finale. I think it's the wife too.
This show is so good but it's really better to binge watch. It's got the 24 style cliffhangers at the end of each episode and I hate waiting week to week!
Finally got around to catching the mid season finale. You don't think it's the suddenly hesitant but newly minted VP finally doing something "heroic" and popping in front of Kirkman?

Damn these cliffhangers!

BTW, quite the progress on the Capitol building. It's been what? Max 6 months? Only the Chinese build things this fast!

That's a good guess and a good way for the show to drag out the story line

There's something off about Keifer Sutherland's face. I think his eyebrows thinned out or something? He is ageing horribly compared to Julia Roberts.

Kiefer is a heavy drinker, and who knows if he does any other drugs. Those factors don't help to stay looking young for bit longer.
Baaaaaaaaa!

REALLY? MARCH 8TH?!

I can't believe they are taking a 2 1/2 month break! Are they that afraid of the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl?

That's BRUTAL.

This season has been awful in terms of scheduling. They've had so many breaks between episodes already, I can't believe they're taking such an hiatus!

Who took the bullet?
I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess Glenn?

I'm gonna say the bullet hits Emily as she just got info about Aaron making the phone call and was about to expose him. This will prolong the reveal of Aaron's role in everything.

Theoretical question if the incident in Designated Survivor actually happened in real life could Kiefer actually become president as he's not born in the USA?

Guess we were all wrong as to who was shot. Wonder how long can they keep this arc up for.

Great episode, never a dull moment. There's so much they can do for stories. This show is basically a crossover between West Wing and 24. Good mix of action and political drama that I like.

Ya, a bit odd of an ending. I'm hoping one of them survived. I mean, Kiefer got shot right through the chest and he was back up on his feet after a day or so, why can't they? And they killed the kid? Damn.

A bit nitpicking here, but did anyone else find the editing of this episode a bit "odd"? The transition from location to location didn't seem very smooth. And characters appeared in different locations in the city rather quickly, and I'm pretty sure only a day or two elapsed during this episode? It just felt weird when watching it.
