The Mysterious and Calculating Dark-Haired Woman


Tom's photo op with world class US track coach and former track star Brad Weston before he and the US team heads off to Russia for a prestigious track meet is followed by a series of bad news for Tom from his key staff. First, he learns from Aaron that Majid Nassar was murdered by an unknown perpetrator while in custody, this news which will remain out of the media until Tom gets some concrete answers as to what happened. Second, he finds from Emily that Weston, upon touching down in Moscow, was arrested for possession of performance enhancing drugs, specifically human growth hormones (HGH), found in his luggage, an offense in Russia punishable by life imprisonment. And third, he is told by Seth that a reporter has a source, a lawyer representing a convicted criminal, stating that the convict is Leo's biological father, with the reporter waiting for confirmation from Seth as to the story's validity. Aaron and Emily urge the President to get a good news story out in the media ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


President Kirkman said the first baseball game played after 911 was the NY Yankees. It actually was the NY Mets. See more »


The plot includes the U.S. track and field team going to Moscow to compete in an international event. Assuming these events are taking place in 2016, this would be impossible, as the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) suspended the All-Russia Athletic Federation in November 2015 and Russia is unable to host any international track and field competitions for the foreseeable future.

Still another amazing episode where treachery abounds.

That Congressman being considered for Vice President leaves much to be desired. His willingness to give out so much information in the vetting process is an obvious sign that he has plenty to hide.

Leo's real father wants to make a deal for his freedom- pardon him and he will keep quiet about being Leo's real father.

That sports coach arrested in Russia for carrying performance drugs turns out to be a double agent! No wonder I say that treachery is plentiful here.

The show is fast paced and even the FBI's son is kidnapped, probably by orders of that Congressman who knows that the former is hot on his tail.
