Designated Survivor: 2×03 – Outbreak

🌟🌟🌟½

President Kirkman is faced with a viral pandemic that threatens to kill countless Americans while FBI Agent Hannah Wells and M16 Agent Damian Rennett discover evidence that could change the lives of members of the first family forever.

Dear show, please tell me you’re not doing what I think you’re doing and setting up a love triangle between Aaron / Emily / Seth?!  No, no, no!  I love Emily and Seth and their friendship.  Anything else would just be plain cringeworthy to watch.  I know this show has had several showrunners in such a short space of time but I wish they would rewatch Season 1 simply so they would remember they spent a season setting up Aaron/Emily.  Grr.

Talking of love triangles (and I really wasn’t expecting to have to do so in this show), Chuck’s jealousy of Damian and crush on Hannah is all kinds of adorkable.  Also, anyone else notice the mini Nikita reunion with Dillon Casey aka Sean Pierce playing the detective that questions Hannah after the warehouse fire?

Other things I liked in this episode: the humorous counterpart to the mass infectious outbreak with the whole frog thing and the budding friendship between Emily and Kendra.
