‘Quantico’ really went there on the Oct. 13 episode. Alex was tortured by the terrorists until she gave up information, while Miranda tried to save her skin. Back at The Farm, someone we know and love was selected by the AIC, and Alex realized she has to work on her own to get things done.
Lydia may have tied Alex up before bolting, but Alex wasn’t just going to wait around for the terrorists to find her. She found a way to get out of her bind — by dislocating her shoulder! The girl is not messing around. Alex called Shelby with only 1% battery left on her phone, but before she could tell Shelby the number of the person who’d been texting her from the outside, the phone died.
Alex was knocked out by the CLF and woke up in an empty room tied to a chair. The terrorists brought in a man named Mike, but Alex believed he was actually just a ruse to get her to talk about the drives. He begged Alex to believe him, but she refused. To prove the man was telling the truth, the terrorists killed him with a shot to the head. They weren’t done, though. Dayana was brought in next.
Shelby took the numbers that Alex was able to give her and got her team on top of trying to find who the number belonged to. This made Miranda’s head spin, and she knew she had to think fast. Apparently, she’s been sleeping with a co-worker, so she framed him by placing the phone with his things.
The terrorists brutally tortured Dayana in front of Alex, and eventually, Alex broke when they threatened to kill Dayana. Soon after the terrorists left with the new information about Lydia, an epic rescue mission took place. Harry, Sebastian, and Leon came in with guns blazing to save Alex and Dayana. What just happened lit a fire under Alex, and she’s officially done playing nice.
Behind The Wall
Back at The Farm, Shelby and Leon were going at it in the car. She was still going by Jane and getting closer than Alex and Ryan to finding out who’s been recruited by the AIC. Raina even told Shelby that she needed to go deeper undercover. That was the only way she was going to get more information.
When Shelby and Alex arrived at the meeting house, Ryan, Raina and Miranda were already there. They were discussing Ryan’s mission, with Alex being left out in the cold. The gang had discovered there was a wall hiding a separate room in Owen’s house, and Alex believed she could get the information out of Owen as to what was behind the wall.
The recruits had a fun night out at the bar, and the night ended up being all about unearthing secrets. Dayana didn’t hold back at all when she asked if Alex and Ryan had ever hooked up. Alex and Ryan didn’t exactly have the smoothest response, but they refused to reveal their past and present relationship status.
A Brutal Interrogation
This week at The Farm, the recruits were going to learn about enhanced interrogation techniques. The point of the week’s assignment was to find ways to break — wait for it — OWEN! He agreed to be the test subject and wanted to see if the recruits could get him to reveal his alias.
Harry went in first after Owen had been held for 15 hours with no food or water. The recruits tried every tactic, but Owen didn’t budge. When they stripped him down, Alex grabbed the keys to Owen’s house. Jackpot. At one point, Owen tried to run away before being submerged in ice cold water, so Dayana told the recruits to put rocks in the tub so he couldn’t turn it over.
Dayana’s knowledge about such things really piqued Ryan’s interests. Later, Ryan quizzed Dayana about her background, but she gave up nothing except for this telling line, “You’ve never done the things I’ve done.”
The recruits dunked Owen in ice cold water, and Alex told them they needed to come up with something different. Sebastian’s idea was to humiliate Owen. Meanwhile, Alex took a break from the interrogating to go to Owen’s house to see what she could find. Unfortunately, Lydia was right behind her, but Harry was able to warn Alex before she got caught. Alex jumped from the second story of the house like it was nothing.
Left Out In The Cold
Harry and Sebastian’s sexual tension hit an all time high this episode. After each of them got under the other’s skin really well, Sebastian kissed Harry in a fit a passion. FINALLY!
Dayana realized what the recruits needed to do to get Owen to break, and that was to hurt someone Owen cared about: Lydia. Alex went to Owen and pleaded with him to end the exercise, because this was not the way to get information. The rest of the recruits brought in Lydia and began water-boarding her. After watching his daughter in pain, Owen revealed his alias.
Lydia was pissed that Owen gave up his alias so easily. She ripped him a new one and called him weak. “I would have let you drown before I gave up anything,” she spat. Damn. Owen finally thought he had shown Lydia how much he loved her, and she literally trashed him for it.
Alex had once again not made any progress on the AIC front, so Shelby took her place. Alex was left out in the cold. Alex wasn’t going to give up, though. She met Owen at the bar and turned on her charm. Oh boy. Meanwhile, Ryan woke up in the middle of the road to find a phone ringing. When he answered it, he found out he’d been selected to be in the AIC!
Oh, and President Todd decided to step down as POTUS, which meant Claire Haas was stepping in. Did she set all of this up? Does this mean we’ll see Caleb again soon?!
