Hostages
Duncan leverages his knowledge of Sandrine’s betrayal in “Suspicious Minds,” and the First Lady compels Ellen to come clean about the assassination plot in “Endgame.” Hey FLOTUS, I would rethink that request if I were you. That story is gonna take, like, 13 hours to tell, and from what I hear most of it is pretty leaden and contrived.
