What I’m Watching: Quantico

Quantico: Season 1, Episode 5 “Found” (C+)

I get that these trainees should be able to think on their feet, but having them master an undercover identity only to pass it to someone else to adopt on the spot seems a bit excessive, and also poses a risk if the organization they’re infiltrating wises up to what they’re up to, not that such things are mentioned or stressed on this show at all. It seems that the larger endgame of this episode was for couples to get together in some way or another. With no sign of Nathalie in this episode, Alex and Booth won the game and were passionate with each other, a connection that lasted even if in a non-romantic way since Booth was the only one who immediately presumed Alex was innocent. Shelby and Caleb realized that they’re better off taking out their hatred for each other in a sexual way, and now that present-day Shelby is on Alex’s side, it’s no surprise that Caleb is the newest suspect. Elias finally made a decent point about why he was stalking Simon, and it seems that Simon’s confession about having done things he can’t undo won him over, and has even opened the door for a possible romantic relationship with Nimah. Alex recording a broadcast to the world asserting her innocence was the best thing she could possibly have done, and doing it from a mosque so that she could get away without being caught was just as smart. I still don’t think O’Connor will even consider the possibility that she’s innocent, and it will be a long time before we learn just what he has against her.
