Alex and Ryan have definitely caught the attention of their fellow recruits. “Quantico” revealed that Leigh (Helene Yorke) is listening in on the double agents’ conversations. However, she isn’t the only one interested. Another classmate will be looking into their intentions in Season 2, episode 5.
“At the Farm, Harry is still suspicious of Alex and Ryan, and he’s determined to learn more about their plan,” the synopsis reveals. Harry (Russell Tovey) was seen introducing himself to Will (Jay Armstrong Johnson) in episode 3. Will he meet up with the FBI agent again this week to get the inside scoop? As previously reported, they’ll definitely connect again this season.
Meanwhile, Leon (Aarón Díaz) will be on a different mission. The recruit is going to get some extra attention from Owen (Blair Underwood). “Leon is recruited for a special assignment by Owen,” the episode 5 summary warns. This special assignment might have something to do with Shelby (Johanna Braddy). The two are pictured together in this episode, but it isn’t clear how their paths cross.
This week’s episode will be all about “the art of illusion,” at least that’s what Owen says in the trailer. He explains that the trainees are going to learn how to make things look different than they actually are. That starts with drugging Alex (Priyanka Chopra), Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) and Harry to put them in bed together. Watch the promo video below:
That lesson connects to the episode title, “KMFORGET.” The CIA cryptonym is the name of an operation that involved the agency planting stories in the media of one country and then clipped and mailed the articles to other countries. Will the agents discover truth this week or will they just find the story the CIA wants them to believe?
The terrorists will also discover the truth in the future when they find Alex. She’ll have an even more dangerous situation to escape in episode 5. “Alex continues to run from the terrorists but faces her toughest challenge yet when the terrorists corner her,” the synopsis teases.
“Quantico” Season 2, episode 5 airs Sunday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
