The Oct. 30 episode of ‘Quantico’ really stepped things up a notch. Alex and Ryan find out what Harry’s up to, Shelby and Leon hit it off, and someone we thought was an ally ends up betraying Shelby to join Miranda with whatever she’s planning!
Miranda is on edge. She gets another text on that sketch phone that reads, “Boyer dead. Need new option. Time running out.” Shelby’s watching her the whole time and knows something’s up. Later, Miranda asks Shelby to bring in Will, so she can use him as bait to see why the terrorists wanted Boyer in the first place.
Speaking of Will, in the present, the adorable nerd and Harry are hooking up. Will wants to know more about him, clearly smitten with Harry. While schmoozing Will up, Harry takes Will’s phone and blocks Shelby’s number and records Will’s voice on his phone. Harry eventually calls Shelby’s phone and leaves a message using Will’s voice. What the heck?!
Shelby runs into Leon at the coffee shop, and there’s an instant attraction between them. Guess we know who Shelby’s new love interest is going to be! Shelby tells Nimah she’s not happy being on the sidelines anymore. She wants to be in the thick of the drama.
Alex and Ryan are busy trying to prove that Leigh planted the bug in Alex’s room. When they leave Leigh’s room, Harry is right there. Masked men come up from behind and stick a needle in their necks! They all wake up in bed together. At first, they think Leigh drugged them, but Owen reveals that he did! Apparently, it’s all a part of the day’s lesson. They’re learning the art of illusion. Ok… Before the recruits head out, Owen asks Leon if he’s interested in being a part of something.
The gang heads to their assignment. Leon runs into Shelby again and he asks her out. After getting a call from Will, Nimah realizes what’s up with Harry. Harry tries to pull off whatever his big plan is, but he fails big time. Even though Harry, Alex, and Ryan all want to question each other, they have 13 minutes to get their sh*t together or go home. They agree to explain everything once’s the assignment is completed. Because this is Quantico, Alex and Ryan double cross Harry after Nimah tells them what’s up.
Back at The Farm, Nimah calls out Shelby for wanting to get so involved, Owen reveals his past to Alex, Shelby and Leon hit it off, and Leigh and Ryan have a moment. However, it’s only because Ryan wants to get Leigh’s fingerprint. Just when Alex and Ryan think they can relax, Harry comes back and wants to talk. He reveals he’s an agent with the CIA. Alex and Ryan admit they’re both CIA and FBI. Harry reveals he’s the one who bugged their rooms.
In the present, Alex takes down some of the masked terrorists with ease. She grabs their phone and runs. The lights go out in the warehouse, and she ends up cornered by the terrorists. She thinks she’s a goner until someone starts shooting. There’s a woman protecting Alex. She helps Alex fake her death to throw the terrorists off. Who is this person?!
The episode ends with Miranda getting a call from Will on her sketch phone. He tells her he’s in. He betrayed Shelby and convinced her that Miranda was innocent. Alex is trying to find a way out and away from the terrorists when she runs right into Lydia. Now how in the hell did she get out from the terrorists’ grasps?!
