COUNTDOWN TO CALAMITY
Maya Pope’s bomb is planted in the church waiting to explode when Fitz steps to the podium to eulogise Senator Hightower, but when Fitz’s VP Sally Langston steps into the fray, there’s no time for an evacuation as the bomb explodes. While Sally survives the carnage and becomes a national hero by tending to dozens of casualties,
Fitz realises he’ll lose the election, but all of that pales into comparison when the murderous Maya has Fitz’s son Jerry killed!
The murder has Fitz vowing to kill Maya, but as Rowan answers his daughter Olivia’s call to bring Maya to justice, she strikes again, slaying Adnan Salif. Accepting
her father’s offer to escape her mother’s tyranny and flee the country, Olivia boards her getaway flight, unaware that the truth beneath the carnage may not
be all that it seems.
