TV Review: Designated Survivor (Season 2, Episode 12)
Share This Article:
On this week’s Designated Survivor, the White House deals with its latest crisis, the hacking of the International Space Station, of the American rocket intended to bring water to the astronauts in space, and subsequently of Russian rockets. The United States and Russia work together to save their astronauts, as Kirkman also enlists the help of Dr. Andrea Frost, treating audiences to a 24 reunion. Kim Raver will be sticking around, though in what capacity beyond their space technology expert remains to be seen.
Of course, last episode was left on the revelation that Damian Rennett was still alive and had decided to pay a visit to the woman who’d tried to kill him. ‘The Final Frontier’ picks things right back up, as he tries to convince Hannah that he has time-sensitive information her government would find valuable. It seems the writers have decided to further extend the whole “can we trust Damian?” debate that had already gone on for too long by the time he went over the side of the bridge. Bringing back Damian was neither intriguing nor exciting, and yet it looks like he’ll be sticking around. Revelations about his double dealings and his motivations fall flat and lack narrative value, because as an audience we’ve lost interest in his character, and not just because he’s been gone from our screens for a few weeks.
