‘Agent X’ Episode Guide (Dec. 13): John Imprisoned in a Basement

“The Long Walk Home” (12/13/15) – John wakes up in an Odessa basement, and is taken aback that he has been imprisoned by an unexpected captor.

Meanwhile, Malcolm desperately sets out to not only find but rescue John.

“The Long Walk Home” was directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Robert Port.

The spirited action-drama “Agent X” stars Jeff Hephner (“Interstellar,” “Chicago Fire”) and Oscar(R) nominee and Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) winner Sharon Stone (“Casino”). Gerald McRaney (“House of Cards”) also stars in the series, which is produced by TNT Originals in association with Beacon Pictures, with Armyan Bernstein (“Air Force One,” “Spy Game,” “Children of Men,” “Castle”) and Sharon Stone serving as executive producers.

William Blake Herron (“The Bourne Identity”) also executive-produces, penned the pilot, which was directed by Peter O’Fallon (“Legit,” “Suicide Kings”). TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the first season of the series.

In times of extreme crisis, when traditional law and government aren’t in a position to help, there is an unseen hand that works to protect this country and its citizens from all manner of threats by any means necessary. Hidden from the view of the public – and even from the President – there is a top secret agent who is trained and ready to serve, deployed only at the careful discretion of the Vice President.

The agent at the center of Agent X is John Case, played by Hephner. Case is a smooth, athletic, tough and quick-witted operative who can be brutally effective when his duties require it. Stone plays America’s first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee, who pledges to protect the country “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Honoring this vow, however, will force her and her secret operative to tackle not only global threats but also the palaces of intrigue of Washington D.C. With Case handling high-stakes missions that are too sensitive for the FBI and the CIA, Maccabee soon finds herself being drawn into the action.

McRaney plays Malcolm Millar, the Chief Steward of the Vice President’s mansion and the keeper of its many secrets. It is he who reveals to Vice President Maccabee the nature of her special responsibilities and who introduces her to John Case, the man currently assigned to serve as “Agent X.”
