A Broken Equilibrium
1 December 2018 | by VivkonSee all my reviews

In this episode writers save one life, but lose another. This episode dramatizes a key story point in the series. Writers narrow President Kirkmans' options for making decisions. He cannot trust anyone. It is an absolutely tear-jerking episode.
