At the beginning of ‘State of Affairs’ I wasn’t the biggest fan of Nick, but the more we’ve got to know him, the more he’s growing on me. He’s really deep in enemy territory and by the looks of it, he’s not coming out of it. If he makes it out alive, he’ll have to answer to for the things he’s done along the way. It’s not easy gaining the trust of a terrorist to defeat the terrorist. And Nick is working hard to see the op succeed.
On the home front Charlie has her own problems to deal with. They may have taken down seven young people tied to the terrorist group and found their bombs, but it turns out the professor was one them all along. The FBI and the CIA couldn’t see through him.

There will be sometimes when they can’t tell you everything. So it turns out he slept with Senator Green. There has been this tension between the President and her husband, especially when it came to Senator Green. I just didn’t know what it was. But if she’s going to hold her presidency together, they will have to work out their issues.
Next week Charlie and her team have to work fast to stop the attack. Take a look at the preview:
