"Designated Survivor" The Oath (TV Episode 2016) - Plot Summary Poster

(TV Series)


Plot Summary

  • President Kirkman fears there could be a traitor in the White House when he discovers shocking information connected to the Capitol Bombing. Confiding in Emily, Kirkman puts her in charge of quietly investigating.

  • As Kimble is unable to receive any incriminating information concerning Peter MacLeish (as Hannah has gone MIA just before her scheduled appointment with Kimble), the House Committee sits to confirm him as the Vice-Presidential appointee. What Kimble is unaware of is that Hannah has been involved in a car accident, which was no accident. With her evidence against MacLeish stolen in the process, Hannah again turns to Chuck as the only person she trusts. Hannah again believes the key is the mysterious woman caller who has provided all these leads thus far. Hannah is also aware that the closer she gets to MacLeish, the more his side will be doing whatever in its power to silence or incriminate her. At the White House, Tom learns of Kimble's concerns around MacLeish and the fact that Hannah was supposed to meet with her to provide what proof she has. As such, Tom asks Mike to locate Hannah, to determine if what she has may be indeed something against MacLeish, or if she is the one who has an unwarranted vendetta, much like Jason did. Until then, Tom has no reason to delay the upcoming ceremony to swear in MacLeish as VP. Tom also starts his own investigation of the DOD produced simulation of the Capitol bombing, which he is certain someone sold or gave to Al-Sakar as the blueprint for the actual bombing. In getting to a certain point, it looks as if only a handful of people in the White House at the time would have had access to the material. Tom asks Emily to investigate further, she not to tell anyone of this assignment. A specific name on the list of people she is to investigate and not being able to tell anyone may place a damper on what is Emily and Aaron's burgeoning romance.
