As we head into a season of indie films and critical darlings fighting for a few awards season nominations, the 2017 People’s Choice Awards has released their list of nominees, celebrating the big hits that gained pop culture notoriety over the past year.
Season 2, Episode 7 – This week on Quantico, things heat up at The Farm with a lesson about interrogation techniques and the beginnings of chemistry between Alex and Owen. In the present day, Alex is caught by the terrorists and interrogated herself. This episode was a little more grounded, but as usual, we are left with more questions than answers.
Season 2, Episode 5 – With another solid episode this week, Quantico is starting to pick back up. The Farm lesson involves a dead body, so we’re talking intrigue, and the present day introduces someone on the inside helping Alex. However, the show still can’t seem to fix some of its most glaring issues.
Season 2, Episode 4 – This week’s episode of Quantico has been the strongest of this season so far. The terrorist plot moves forward; the daily Farm lesson is intriguing, and we finally get to glimpse deeper into the CIA recruits’ psyches. 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.
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.
ABC has finally revealed their fall premiere dates. While we watched the other networks announced their start dates over the past couple of weeks, ABC took a little bit longer as they made their decisions.
