After a shocking and upsetting twist in the midseason finale, Designated Survivorwill have to pick up the pieces in the second half of the season. President Tom Kirkman will have to run the country while mourning the loss of a loved one (we’ve seen that before on a certain ABC show as well…) while dealing with all the tense issues a president must face. It’s not an easy task by any means, but Keifer Sutherland’s Tom Kirkman is no stranger to unexpected adversity and is still the man for the job.
