State of Affairs

Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst — Charleston Tucker — assembles the President's Daily Briefing (PDB). This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and... her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency. Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with the President because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2 a.m., she is all about her job — protecting her nation, serving her President and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé's murder that will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.

Well, they would have some explaining to do, if that was supposed to be a cliffhanger. Have one fighterpilot in the family, and sorry but, the end.
Now the guy in the Landrover, whom ever he was (yeah she calls, he comes), indicated something else, but the sounds they used. He to is gone, gone, gone. And she got the presidents son killed among many others, so she was never really forgiven. Cece went over the cliff and it all ended in black.

Or lets forget the soundtrack and dream up a grey ending, aye?

Nice twists, but i had most of them figured out 4 to 5 episodes back, the 2 big ones was long overdue. And i'm not a women so i hate the sex and love scenes, ew. But that aside things are heating up, and once again U.S. are the biggest threat to U.S.. Yes a little boring i know, but at lest we have our favorits. And hey look at the times we live in now, way further out than this series.
