It’s time for the ‘Quantico’ winter finale! The final five minutes of the Nov. 27 episode will feature the most shocking betrayal. Who will double-cross Alex? Read our recap now!
At the Farm, Ryan and Alex are trying to have a little bit of sexy time. Their fun is interrupted by Raina. Even though they’re on the same side, Alex can’t know any part of Ryan and Raina’s assignment. Now that Ryan’s in the AIC, he needs to figure out which of the other recruits is part of it too. Since she can’t talk to Ryan, Alex and Harry forge a friendship and talk about everything that’s going on at the Farm.
Lydia tells Owen that she’s been granted her request for another tour. After what she told him last week, that’s probably best for them. Before the recruits head out on Thanksgiving break, the father-daughter duo reveal their next assignment: Coming up with a cover story that people closest to you will believe. This will not be good for Ryan and Alex’s relationship. And it’s not. When Alex tries to get Ryan to go away with her for the holiday weekend, things get awkward. “At least lie convincingly,” she says.
Alex finds out what Shelby, Ryan, and Raina have been keeping from her. She realizes she’s been pulled from the assignment. Alex feels like Shelby betrayed her. Shelby is brutally honest with Alex. “You didn’t cut it, Alex,” Shelby tells Alex.
Ryan is forced to kidnap an innocent as part of an AIC assignment. Ryan leaves and Leon shows up. He kills the man and confesses what he did to Shelby. Alex and Ryan finally have a heart-to-heart. Ryan doesn’t waste any time proposing to Alex. He says he’s ready to leave everything behind for her. She accepts his proposal and everything’s fine (but it won’t stay that way).
Miranda offers Alex a job with the FBI, but Alex refuses. She’s not going to back down. She vows to find the AIC and take them down. Ryan drives to a deserted area and is met by Leon and Dayana. They receive a video of them all committing all sorts of crimes during their test for the AIC. That poor man! The AIC threatens to destroy them if they don’t comply to their demands.
In the future, Alex, Leon, Dayana, Sebastian, and Harry find a safe space while on the run from the terrorists. They don’t have much time. Dayana is bleeding out. Alex makes a quick call to Shelby and devises the next plan of attack to take down the terrorists. Meanwhile, Raina is pulled into another room and comes face-to-face with one of the CLF, who also happens to be her sister!
Nimah admits that she joined the CLF six months ago. She believes what the terrorists are trying to do is the right thing. Nimah, what happened to you?! Raina rips Nimah a new one in one of the best scenes of Quantico to date. Yasmine Al Massri absolutely kills it. Raina says Nimah’s not her twin, she’s her shadow. “You’re the darkness I leave behind me,” Raina says to her sister. “You’re not fighting for anything but yourself.”
Alex and the crew continue to avoid the terrorists. They need to get out before they all die. When a group of terrorists meet nearby, Harry knows they’ll never be able to get passed unnoticed. So he suggests going above their heads. Alex, Leon, Harry, and Sebastian head up, but Dayana decides to stay behind.
Sebastian and Alex figure out that the CLF’s plan is the spread the virus inside the building. Alex is ready to warn the FBI before the terrorists move hostages back inside the building. On their way to find help, Alex and the crew is surrounded by the terrorists. One of the terrorists tries to separate Alex from the rest of the group. Alex refuses to go down without a fight. When she takes the mask off the terrorist, it’s RYAN!
