Plot Synopsis

In times of extreme crisis, when traditional law and government aren't in a position to help, there is an unseen hand that works to protect the United States and its citizens from all manner of threats by any means necessary. Hidden from the view of the public -- and even from the President -- there is a top secret agent who is trained and ready to serve, deployed only at the careful discretion of the Vice President. The agent at the center of AGENT X is John Case, a smooth, athletic, tough and quick-witted operative, who can be brutally effective when his duties require it. America's first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee, pledges to protect the country "against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Honoring this vow, however, forces her and her secret operative to tackle not only global threats but also the palaces of intrigue of Washington D.C. With Case handling high-stakes missions that are too sensitive for the FBI and the CIA, Maccabee soon finds herself being drawn into the action. When AGENT X premiered, TNT debuted back-to-back episodes from 9-11pm ET/PT. The series starts just after Maccabee's inauguration, when she's nitiated into a covert world of danger by her chief steward, Malcolm Millar and Chief Justice Caleb Thorne. Contrary to what the public believes, the job of Vice President is far from ceremonial. In fact, enshrined in a secret version of the Constitution is a section endowing Natalie with her own secret agent, John Case, to be deployed in times of crisis. Natalie quickly finds herself in play when the daughter of FBI Director Stanton is kidnapped, and authorities are helpless in rescuing her. Then, in the premiere night's second episode (10pm), "The Enemy of My Enemy," one of John's old nemeses, terrorist Malik Ahmad, steals an arsenal of nuclear warheads and a scientist to activate them. John is forced to work with his enemy Olga Petrovka in order to destroy them and rescue the scientist. Meanwhile, Natalie and Malcolm endeavor to protect John's identity from an FBI investigation.
On Sunday, December 27, 2015 from 9-11pm ET/PT, TNT premiered the finale of AGENT X. In the night's first new episode (9pm), "Penultimatum," John is blackmailed by a terrorist into going on a suicide mission, employing the Geryon to accomplish the catastrophic deed. Then in the finale (10pm), "Fidelity," John must rescue Natalie, Eckhart and a delegation of international leaders from a hostage crisis in the Paris Opera house.
