Plus, we get a definitive character reveal that will change the course of the season.
Season 2, Episode 3 – This episode of Quantico leans into the show’s procedural elements by spotlighting a heavy backstory on the CIA trainees in another exercise gone awry. Meanwhile, the present-day terrorist plot continues to go nowhere fast with plenty of things to be suspicious, but not really care, about. At least we get to see Alex in full form again.
Season 2, Episode 2 – The terrorist plot deepens on Quantico. “Lipstick” finds a slower pace, focusing on the CIA and its untrustworthy recruits, ending on a huge cliffhanger to tie viewers over for the next two weeks.
The season two premiere of Quantico finds Alex Parrish at the center of several bombings in New York City. She’s the only one that can save a wider terrorist plot from unfolding, and her training at the CIA will be imperative to uncovering the conspiracy. Sound familiar? Maybe following its freshman season formula won’t prove to be such a bad thing.
Shelby attempts to entrap her mother State-side, as the recruits learn more about their past; in the present, the Voice’s identity is revealed, and Alex must figure out how to stop the bomb.
Alex and Shelby locate Drew, and hatch a plan to infiltrate the FBI to incriminate Ryan as the terrorist. At Quantico, a fire at the local Post Office provides a chance for the trainees to get into the field.
Alex comes face-to-face with Shelby at FBI HQ, as Parrish has to deduce whether the devious Southern Belle is with her or against. At Quantico, Drew tries to ignore a severe medical condition, endangering all around him.
Alex seeks out a harrowed Caleb in the present timeline, only to find out a terrible truth. Meanwhile, the recruits undergo final screenings for the FBI.
Though Alex and Simon do their best to outsmart The Voice, there’s little room for error as they attempt to bust out a CIA asset. In the past, the recruits are tasked with crossing the Canadian border – illegally, that is.
Alex finds an unlikely ally in the fast-talking Hannah, and the couple band together to protect Senator Haas from a terrorist plot. Back at Quantico, the recruits face a daunting, perhaps impossible, exercise.
Quantico has officially been renewed for a second season. When do you give up the ghost and ask yourself why you were haunting everyone in the first place?
Here we have a show that was, by its design, a convoluted web of intrigue and lies, one that asked us to play along with its starring FBI trainees and figure out the conspiracy as it went along. And after the midseason finale, we realized just how fruitless that request would become.
