The Designated Survivor season 1 midseason premiere is titled “Warriors.” According to the episode synopsis, “The nation reels from the aftermath of the shooting. Meanwhile, Emily Rhodes struggles with the knowledge there may be a traitor in the White House. Plus, Hannah Wells wrestles with her decision to reveal what she knows.” Catch up on what happened last time with my recap.
The Designated Survivor season 1 midseason premiere promo video is a teaser that doesn’t give much information. But, it does reveal that the shooting victim survived. At least, for now. Actually, they’re in the hospital getting a serious operation. Watch the Designated Survivor season 1 midseason premiere promo video below.
According to SpoilersGuide, the second half of Designated Survivor season 1 will reveal more of the conspiracy. But, it will also show Tom Kirkman growing into the role of President. Executive producer Jeff Melvoin said:
As we move into the second half you’ll see the conspiracy story deepening and we begin to come up with some answers. And as we begin to come up with some answers, and put some names to faces or faces to names, it also gives the president the opportunity to govern some more. You’re going to see the show continue to be driven by the conspiracy, but you’re also going to see the president grow in office and become his own. He’s going to define his own 100 days agenda, restarting the clock in the second half because, as he notes, he wasn’t given the opportunity to have his 100 days because of the way he came into office. It’s an opportunity for him to write his own narrative, and it starts him on a new journey that we can all follow with excitement and interest.
