Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is in trouble.
When Limitless returns on Jan. 5 — in an episode titled “The Assassination of Eddie Morra” — the presidential candidate’s life will be threatened. According to the logline, he comes into the crosshairs of Piper (Georgina Haig, in a recurring role), a would-be assassin who’s out for blood and who may have had close ties with him in the past. As a result of the attempt on Eddie’s life, Brian (Jake McDorman) must work against the FBI to prevent her from exposing the senator’s connection to NZT — and to him.
Whether he survives the attack remains to be seen, but in the two exclusive images above (click to enlarge), Eddie appears to be in full campaign mode in New York.
Limitless returns Tuesday, Jan. 5, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
