Plot Summary | Add Synopsis



Did You Know?


Before killing one of his fighters Giorgio tells him "don't forget to pay the ferryman". In Greek mythology when a person died their soul would be sent to the shores of the River Styx in the underworld. In order to reach the other side and enter Hades (the afterlife) they have to be ferried across the river by Charon, the ferryman. But in order to do so they must pay the toll for crossing the river, if they didn't have any money to pay Charon they would not be able to cross the river and enter the afterlife and their soul would be cursed to wander in limbo for eternity. Hence the ancient Greek custom of placing two coins over the eyes of a person when they are buried, the coins are to be used to pay Charon's toll. See more »


It should have been obvious to Green, Sasha and Wolf that all they needed to do to keep the missile launcher from being controlled remotely was to take out the camera and antenna on the side of it. With the camera the remote operator wouldn't be able to see anything to aim at, and without the antenna it most likely couldn't receive a remote signal. See more »

season 4 is TERRIBLE
4 September 2017 | by mathomas-28053See all my reviews

Wow, I've never seen a show go so bad so fast. Seasons 1-3 were really terrific. What happened? Biggest disappointment of my TV watching career (well, since LOST, The Sopranos, etc.). Who in the world did they turn this over to? Really sad. No wonder the young people have stopped watching TV.

Previous seasons did a good job of re-inventing themselves, adding GOOD new characters, plot twists, etc. This year, NADA.

There's no emotion, no plot, nothing interesting at all, just a lot of wandering around and shooting. You guys better get some writers and directors on board fast, or you're gonna be history.

I hope this same thing doesn't happen to "Designated Survivor."
