Designated Survivor Mega Buzz: One of the Kirkmans Is Not Who They Say They Are

A scandal may rock the Kirkman family, jeopardizing Tom's presidency

Tim Surette

So far, ABC's Designated Survivor has put Kirkman family drama aside to focus on Tom's (Kiefer Sutherland) difficulties adjusting to his new job as president of the United States. But not for long.

We hear the first family is going to find itself immersed in what could potentially be a major scandal, one that will expose huge secrets from one of the Kirkmans' past -- including the bombshell that one family member turns out to not be who they say they are.

Catch up on all this week's Mega Buzz!

Should the info leak to the public, it could put Tom's chances at getting a fair shake at the presidency in even more jeopardy. As a result, we may see those who have Tom's back go into serious damage control, employing some dirty political tricks. But will it be enough to keep the secret from getting out?
