Designated Survivor Exclusive: Watch President Kirkman Tangle With an Enemy in the Oval Office

Tom and Kimble do the dance in the White House

Tim Surette

Can't newly minted president Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) get a few minutes without someone questioning his decisions or suspecting him of doing something wrong? Nope.

On Wednesday's episode of Designated Survivor, Kirkman makes the uneasy choice to send in Navy SEALs to deal with an uncooperative Algeria. But apparently the mission is on a need-to-know basis, because as you'll see in this sneak peek, Kirkman's nosy enemy Kimble Hookstraten (Virginia Madsen) has a hunch that something is up and presses him on the issue. And how does she know?

Designated Survivor Mega Buzz: One of the Kirkmans is not who they say they are

The parking lot. For real!

Oh man, they are so cordial with their nastiness! Can Kirkman keep this top-secret mission out of the public eye? How will this sit with the country? And will Kimble ever ease up on Tom? Hopefully we'll find out this week.

Designated Survivor airs Wednesday nights at 10/9c on ABC.
