The CW has released the Official Synopsis of Containment episode “A Kingdom Divided Against Itself” (1.09) that will be aired on Tuesday, June 21 at 09:00-10:00 PM
As tensions reach a fever pitch inside the cordon, mobs of angry protestors take to the streets in an attempt to break free. Meanwhile, stuck in isolation and cut off from their chain of command, Lex (David Gyasi) and Dr. Lommers (Claudia Black) have no choice but to stand by helplessly as the cordon erupts into mass chaos. At the hospital, Jake (Chris Wood) attempts to lighten the mood by taking Katie (Kristen Gutoskie) on a date, but their happiness is short-lived after they discover that several of Katie’s students have gone missing. Meanwhile, with Lex nowhere to be found, Leo (Trevor St. John) moves forward with their investigation, inching one step closer to uncovering the person responsible for the outbreak.
Christina Moses and Hanna Mangan Lawrence also star.
“A Kingdom Divided Against Itself” (#109) has been written by Michael Jones-Morales and directed by Lance Anderson.
Containment: When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure.
