  • After 10 weeks of grief, the President's senior staff insists he see a therapist to help deal with his loss. Hanna and Aaron are part of a trade delegation to Cuba but the trip doesn't go well.

  • It's been ten weeks since Alex was killed in a tragic traffic accident. Since, Tom has been a ghost of a president, he not having made any significant decisions which is crippling the country. Although his senior staff realizes it, Tom himself doesn't, and as such they have recommended that he go into therapy with Dr. Adam Louden. The outcome of that therapy will be tested concerning a trade mission to Cuba organized between US Senator Sanchez and Cuban President Ortega. Beyond a bipartisan group of senators and congresspeople, the mission includes key business people hoping to do business in Cuba, with Aaron and Hannah, the latter on probation due to the point blank shooting of Damian Rennett, providing White House staff services. That mission turns into a crisis when the American trade representatives, including Aaron and Hannah, are taken hostage by a rebel group opposed to Ortega and his dealings with the Americans. The situation is already difficult enough due to the tenuous nature of the relationship between the US and Cuba without Tom's hesitancy, his world view now to keep as many people safe which in the long run may actually jeopardize more lives. Something that Hannah secretly learns as a hostage may be key if she can only get that information back to the White House. Meanwhile, Lyor has gone through yet another assistant, the next candidate, Tricia Sims, who he dismisses before she even really begins, which may be a mistake on his part. And Emily and Seth's personal relationship seems to be stalled, at least on Emily's side.
