ABC's Designated Survivor is shaking things up onscreen for season two.
Madsen (Sideways) recurred during season one as Kimble Hookstraten, a congresswoman who was the political drama's other "designated survivor." The character provided one of many foils for Sutherland's President Tom Kirkman, though by season's end, Kimble had to settle for the position of secretary of education after initially gunning to be vice president.

“Home Alone” meets “The Bad Seed” in “Better Watch Out,” a clever black comedy-cum-horror pic in which the apparent home invasion that traps a babysitter and her charges turns out to be something else entirely. This macabre Christmas movie, a co-production shot in Australia but set in Anytown USA, seems destined to become one of those Yuletide perennials for people who like their holiday-themed entertainment as perversely un-wholesome as possible. It’s already sold to numerous territories (including Well Go for North America) with an eye toward a seasonally appropriate late-2017 release.
Squabbling as usual before leaving for a dinner party, the Lerners (expert comic turns by Virginia Madsen and Patrick Warburton, seen again just briefly at the end) leave only-child Lukas (Levi Miller) in the care of Ashley (Olivia DeJonge). At age 12, you might expect Luke to chafe at still requiring a sitter. But in fact he has high »

Hannah was transferred from a van to a semi and then to someplace even worse. Where she's going is anyone's guess, but I'm going to venture she's headed towards Canada, the same place as President Kirkman.
My question is why Lloyd and company would throw her on a cargo ship when they could just as easily killed her? Why keep her alive? Are they going to use her as bait of some kind?
Hannah showed us once again what a badass she was when she not only convinced her guard to loosen up her chains but used the underwire part of her bra to break out of the chains. That's »
