Spoiler alert: This post contains plot points from the May 15 season finale of Quantico.
Quantico began with Alex (Priyanka Chopra) waking up in the rubble of Grand Central after a terrorist bombing — and with a target painted on her back. A season later, it turns out the terrorist wasn’t a NAT after all. Instead, it was Liam (Josh Hopkins) who concocted the plan, spied on his students, and killed hundreds to prove a point.
The penultimate episode may have revealed Liam’s villainy, but the finale answered how he did it (the first five minutes flashed back to Liam’s movements in the first half of the season), why he did it (Liam considered the FBI corrupt and ineffective), and what comes next for everyone else after his death. After all, it’s not the end of the line for Alex, who gets a mysterious visit from a CIA agent.
Of course, it’s not like everyone’s in the clear by the end. Over the course of the season, each of the NATs proved they had something to hide: Alex killed her father; Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) was spying on Alex for Liam; Simon (Tate Ellington) harbored a dark past abroad; Shelby’s (Johanna Braddy) half-sister conned her for her parents who faked their deaths on 9/11; Caleb (Graham Rogers) hoped to take down a cult; and twins Nimah and Raina (Yasmine Al Massri) were groomed to infiltrate a major terrorist cell. And that’s not to mention NATs like Natalie (Anabelle Acosta) and the drama around Caleb’s politician mother Claire (Marcia Cross) and scheming father Clayton (Mark Pellegrino).
With all of these twists, did the first season of Quantico wrap up its stories effectively? Will you be tuning in for a season 2? For now, did the finale satisfy you with its answers, or do you wish you had more pieces of the puzzle? Vote below:
