The Attorney General died in the attack and the new one may be Reed Diamond’s character. Tom wonders how he can rid himself of his turbulent VP. Aaron sulks and is a self-indulgent bore. The plot is all calculated lunacy. There is not enough evidence against Peter. Catalan the assumed big bad is dead (off screen). Jason gets out of his hellhole prison because his son is still missing.
Peter has lofty distain. Kimble is increasingly deranged and hugely unsatisfactory. Peter’s wife Beth (Freddie from ‘Hannibal’!) wonders if ‘they’ will try to kill Tom again. Who are they? Tom muses how he never beat anyone up. Tom’s kids sit by his bedside. Tom seems to have PTSD from you know, nearly being murdered. Emily has sad resignation, Tom has strong convictions and there is a question of duty. Tom’s liberal wisdom will save the day.
Kimble’s hair has changed. Jason learns what happened to his son. We are shown Tom Kirkman’s POTUS photograph. Everyone presupposes functioning institutions of government after the events of 1x01. This was okay if not deeply evocative. There is a showdown in a graveyard. Where is the light coming from? There is death, unexpected death. Tom leaves hospital to a wave of applause. Won’t more death upset social cohesion? What happened to Peter abroad?

People should take issue with Liv’s corpse defilement. This ep is all clumsy contrivances and there is a resultant problem with the coherence of the narrative. There are negative connotations for Major. There is no moral landscape. This has no connotations of earnestness or moral subtlety. Clive is the worst. Where are Liv’s family during all this?
Liv tells Clive the truth, Major gets out of jail, the FBI bitch bitches and this was mediocre. There are set ups for season 3 and why are there epi-pens in a morgue?
