State of Affairs “The War at Home” Episode 10

State of Affairs “The War at Home” Episode 10 airs Monday Jan 26 at 10PM ET/PT on NBC. In tonight’s episode, Charlie (Katherine Heigl) and the PDB team race to find the Ar Rissalah 7’s missing bombs before other members of the terrorist cell rise up and attack the homeland. In their hunt, Charlie must enlist the help of a former adversary, Professor Ahmad Ahmadi (guest star Anil Kumar). As domestic fear and suspicion builds, President Payton (Alfre Woodard) is under fire for her close ties to the CIA and faces a new political threat from Senator Burke (guest star Rex Linn). Meanwhile, Operation Bellerophon is jeopardized when Nick Vera (guest star Chris L. McKenna) and Omar Fatah (guest star Farshad Farahat) pick up a tail in the Philippines.

Nick’s (guest star Chris L. McKenna) masked captor lets him go only to lead him to his next mission. Back at Langley, Lucas (Adam Kaufman) takes the lead on the interrogation of a potential, and very controversial, är rissãlah member. At the same time, President Payton (Alfre Woodard) must make a hard choice between getting a much-needed win or holding out for her long-term goal of killing Sheikh Hakam. Sheila Vand, Tommy Savas, Cliff Chamberlain and David Harbour also star. Guest starring Nestor Carbonell, Melinda McGraw and Anil Kumar.

Each day the President is faced with dozens of life and death decisions, and to prioritize the biggest international crises facing the country, one top CIA analyst — Charleston Tucker (Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”) — assembles the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB). This list of the most vital security issues facing the nation brings with it moral and political judgment calls for Charleston and her trusted group of brilliant analysts at the agency.

Aside from the political minefields she has to walk, Charlie has a close personal relationship with the President (Alfre Woodard, “Desperate Housewives”) because she was once engaged to her son before a tragic terrorist attack took his life. Charlie survived that attack and is now determined to bring the perpetrators to justice. Navigating a complex personal life and a pressure-cooker profession is, of course, a challenge, and Charlie sometimes engages in boundary-pushing behavior to avoid facing her grief. But when the clock strikes 2 a.m., she is all about her job — protecting her nation, serving her President and still trying to get to the bottom of her fiancé’s murder that will reveal itself as a shocking mystery.

The cast also includes Adam Kaufman, Sheila Vand, Cliff Chamberlain, Tommy Savas and Leslie Odom, Jr.

Writer-director Joe Carnahan (“The Blacklist”) serves as executive producer with Katherine Heigl, Nancy Heigl, Robert Simonds, Sophie Watts, Henry Crumpton, Rodney Faraon and Julia Franz. “State of Affairs” is a production of Universal Television, Bob Simonds Company and Abishag Productions.
