“Designated Survivor” is finally back after weeks of hiatus. The action-packed episode 11 of the finally revealed who got shot -- and it is no other than President Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) himself. Fortunately, it was just a flesh wound and no vital organs were hit.

While he is okay, he has fragments of shrapnel around his body and this required giving surgeons time to remove all the pieces. This meant that the Vice President had to take over the presidential position for the time being. The episode ended with MacLeish making some questionable decisions and Kirkman finally waking up and coming face to face with Agent Hannah Wells.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Designated Survivor” spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens before the next episode airs.

In this upcoming episode, titled “The End is the Beginning,” a new discovery from within the conspiracy will emerge. The official synopsis provides that tension will rise between Aaron and Emily as suspicions loom from within the walls of the White House. Meanwhile, a new lead will place Agent Wells closer to the truth than ever before.

In the White House, the rift between Chief of Staff Aaron Shore (Adan Canto) and Emily Rhodes (Italia Ricci) grows. Aaron is fully aware that Emily and the president himself have their eyes on him. In the meantime, Wells gets a new lead on the conspiracy and will realize that she is way closer to learning the truth about Peter MacLeish and his sinister plans.

The YouTube promo shows President Kirkman getting impatient about sitting in the hospital as he tries to recover from his surgery. This is particularly tricky because a traitor is hell bent on getting behind him. Fortunately, he will be back on his feet and will return to running the country, much to MacLeish’s chagrin. However, there are some things that he still needs to know, such as the identity of the person who has been leaking confidential information to the enemy.

Also, the President finally learns about MacLeish. Viewers always thought that there was something fishy going on with him. The previous episode confirmed that all this is true and the Vice President (and even his wife) had always been a part of the conspiracy from the very start, even before the bombing.

This episode of “Designated Survivor” will air on March 15 at 10:00 p.m. on ABC. It also airs on Netflix US and Netflix Australia. As of this writing, there is no official word on when "Designated Survivor" season 2 will be airing or if the show has been given the green light for a renewal.
