Whoa. ‘Quantico’ just dropped the CRAZIEST twist on the March 6 midseason premiere. HollywoodLife.com spoke to EP Josh Safran all about what’s next for Alex Parrish! Get the scoop here!
OMG. Quantico is back and better than ever. So where does the show go from here after that insane March 6 episode? HollywoodLife.com got the scoop straight from EP Josh Safran about Alex’s relationships with Ryan and Liam, a possible new romance, and our favorite agent heading to some really “dark places.” Warning: spoilers ahead!
Where does Alex go from here?
She goes where she’s forced to go, which is some really dark places. Like, she has to cross a bunch of lines she thought she’d never cross. It’s really tough on her because Team Alex no longer exists and she has no one to help her.
Will she reach out to anybody?
She’s going to try, but she’s not going to be able to say what’s really going on. The difficulty for Alex (Priyanka Chopra) moving forward is that she wants to tell everybody what’s happening, but she can’t tell anybody. There’s a really emotional scene coming up — she almost makes a mistake and goes too far and comes very close to paying a price.
What about the relationship between Alex and Ryan? Will we see more from them?
Yes, you definitely will. The relationship has to change. A relationship isn’t just people together or being romantic, it’s also when people are apart but they’re still connected. In the future, Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) is upset with Alex and that doesn’t go away. But he’s upset only in the way you can be when someone you love so much seems different to you and you don’t understand and they’re not making sense anymore. You don’t understand where they’ve gone. I feel like that dynamic is just as romantic — weirdly — because you just want them to talk to each other and they can’t. As much as I would love to say let’s get them together and ride off into the sunset a) you don’t do that on a TV show because then it’s over, and b) that doesn’t happen in life, especially in the FBI. They are still connected, but that doesn’t mean Alex doesn’t have other romantic interests on the Quantico side.
There is a new guy on the Quantico side. Could there be something more between Alex and Drew?
Maybe. Ryan can’t be the only one. Ryan has been with Vasquez (Anabelle Acosta), Alex and Hannah (Eliza Coupe). Why should Ryan get all the fun?
I kind of like Drew. He’s kind of a dick but I like him.
The thing about Drew (Lenny Platt), which is so great and such a fun character to create, is that he’s a straight shooter. You actually think he’s a bit of a dick, but then as you watch it, Alex comes to realize that he’s actually the most honest person she’s ever met. What he says is the truth. And for Alex, that’s very new for her. Because she wants to believe that there’s something else that he’s not saying. So it actually gets her into trouble because she goes digging where things don’t exist. She ends up creating a problem where one doesn’t exist between Drew and other people. She has to learn a lesson in life that some people are straight shooters.
Will we learn what happened between Liam and Alex?
Yes, you will get the answers soon. I can definitely say something happened between them over the holidays and the question is whether that will continue or whether it’s over. You find out slowly.
