Keith Eisner revealed shortly after the midseason finale aired that Designated Survivor intended to tread new TV ground by showing a president who is also a widower. Sure, the MC can be very immature, but to equate her position to Bella/Nora/etc.?

while we cant assume that Hook or Hood have penises, only that they present as men (and Hood does act as if he is motivated by finding a place to put his), and in any case their anatomy is not the problem, the fact that heterosexuality is the primary thing OQ has going for it is undeniable.
