“Equilibrium” (10/18/17) – Tensions rise between America and Mexico when a Mexican citizen is shot during a border dispute regarding Mexican trade imports; and Kirkman and his staff must work quickly to resolve the situation and create a new trade deal, on “Designated Survivor,” airing WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

“Equilibrium” was written by Paul Redford & Keith Eisner. It was directed by Joe Lazarov.
