The NATs are finally ditching those uniforms on “Quantico.” The trainees will get their first undercover assignment in Season 1, episode 5, and Alex (Priyanka Chopra) is ready to go, despite second-guessing her career choice in episode 4. In fact, after Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) convinced Alex to stay last week on the new ABC drama, the synopsis says she’ll bond even more with the undercover agent in "Found."
The recruits will leave the Quantico campus for the first time to attend what appears to be a fancy gala. “With an evening full of unpredictable events, Alex and Ryan find themselves getting close while the recruits’ skills are tested,” the synopsis teases. Ryan will have to be careful that Alex doesn’t get too close to him. If she learns that he is spying on her for Liam (Josh Hopkins), he’ll be in major trouble.
In the future, Alex is still a wanted terrorist. However, she’ll stop running for a moment to put the truth out there. “Alex decides to tell her side of the story and sits down for her first public interview leaving everyone watching to wonder who is really telling the truth,” the synopsis reveals. It isn’t clear how she can sit down for an interview without getting arrested, but Alex seems clever enough to find a way to talk to the public while remaining on the run.
Liam will be more anxious than ever to stop Alex. It sounds like the agent managed to learn plenty of information during her time with the FBI. “It’s not just me she has something on, it’s all of us,” he tells Miranda (Aunjanue Ellis). The question is: will the public believe Alex’s story?

This episode could also reveal more about Liam and Miranda’s history. “When the NATs go undercover at a D.C. Hotel, we learn more about Liam and Miranda’s romantic past… and also a complication with their present connection,” TV Line reports. The photos below certainly seem like they could be in the ballroom of a hotel somewhere, so viewers should prepare for some drama between the exes.
“Quantico” Season 1, episode 5 airs Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
