Designated Survivor Season 3 Episode 6 Recap

In the previous episode of Netflix’s Designated Survivor, Hannah killed Crawford, the white supremacist who spread the engineered virus. In Designated Survivor Season 3 Episode 6, Aaron went to Texas to visit an undocumented child in need of a kidney transplant, and Dontae was mugged on his way to work.


The campaign sent Aaron to El Paso to visit a Guatemalan boy, Mateo, whose parents crossed the border illegally to get him a kidney transplant. Mateo’s father was a match, so that would dissuade those against him jumping the donor line. Unfortunately, the procedure cost too much money. The good news was that Isabel found funds that didn’t disqualify undocumented immigrants.

While the procedure was a success, the next hurdle was affording the immunosuppressants Mateo would need to take for the rest of his life. Aaron asked people to donate to a fund for Mateo, which received over $900,000 in donations. However, because of unfavorable polling from Latinos in Florida, Kirkman decided to go ahead with deporting him after his hospital discharge. The move backfired, as pundit Phil Brunton criticized Kirkman for being too centrist.

As Aaron left the hospital, Mariluz Santiago, an undocumented immigrant he’d helped cross the border as a teenager, came to see him. A reporter was harassing her.

Kirkman spoke with a colleague, who had rejuvenated Atlanta, and suggested a similar program for D.C. to the HUD Secretary. While they were reluctant to trust Kirkman because of his political motivations, the Congressional Black Caucus threw their support behind him. Whether or not Kirkman was re-elected, the program was still happening and would need support.
