What I’m Watching: Quantico

Quantico: Season 1, Episode 14 “Answer” (C-)

I’m confused about the passage of time in this show’s future, since I’m pretty sure we saw Simon testify and be mad at Alex just a day or two ago, and now he’s living in a cabin in Vermont pointing a gun to his jaw every morning so soon after. I’m also surprised that Alex would go straight to him since he’s the one she trusts most when that really hasn’t been the case at all (that honor goes to Ryan). Telling him the full truth didn’t take long, and somehow he managed to get out of his house before burning the whole thing down, which is convenient since Alex could really use an ally. It seems that these new recruits aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, since we’re getting plenty of backstory on them, further suggesting that they may be the ones to ultimately become terrorists. Iris is all over the place, manipulating events to her every whim and then coming out of nowhere to express sincere sympathy to Shelby, while Will is tailing Caleb as he dresses up and pretends to be someone else to help right the wrong that has been committed by Shelby’s alleged half-sister. Drew went from not at all interested in talking about what happened in Chicago to publicly airing his grievances, which resulted in a quick dismissal from the academy, hardly the result he wanted. I can’t read Alex and her relationship with Liam, which seems wildly inconsistent, and given what we know of the future, I don’t think that he’s going to resign as he’s been told to.
