Quantico Season 1 Episode 18 Review: This week’s episode was pretty much a filler episode. In the strand of last few episodes that aired, this was a bit boring. But they did do a job good enough to keep you hooked and leave you wondering about the next episode. (check: Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2 Review.)
The last episode ended with Alex finding out that Shelby was driving the vehicle which abducted Simon and Will. Picking up from that point, this episode begins with Alex trying to reach out to Shelby, Simon and Will through various means. She has not succeeded yet.
Quantico Season 1 Episode 18 Review
Nimah and Ryan are working together to debunk Alex’s supposed conspiracy theory. They are monitoring her every move. Alex gets to know that someone by the name Mark Raymond is connected to the terrorist in a number of ways. She discovers that Mark is a fake identity being used by Caleb.
Meanwhile, back at the academy, the trainees are being tested for their medical fitness. Caleb is sending Shelby letters in her parents’ name to save her pain. Iris Chang is suspicious of Caleb and Will’s activities. She is worried about her best friend Will, who she thinks is one of the few good people at the academy.
Nimah and Raina are working hard to look and be identical in every way possible. Miranda is suspended from her position. She suspects that Liam voted against her. At the same time, trainees were vetted for security clearance. The flagged ones had to be studied by the other trainees and then it would be decided if they deserve the clearance or not.
In the present, Alex is taking Raina’s help to impersonate Nimah in order to get information on Caleb’s whereabouts. We also learn that Nimah betrayed Raina in some way sometime in the past. She is quickly caught but she is able to help Alex by alerting Caleb’s mother about Alex.
Caleb’s mother picks up Alex and takes her to her home when Alex confronts her about Caleb. Alex finds out that Caleb is now a drug addict due to the trauma of his father’s death and his mother is supporting his addiction and keeping it under wraps just to save her image. We later learn that it was all a façade.
In the past, Will and Caleb are caught by Sistemics and Will gets beaten up by Caleb’s hands. Also, the episode ends with Miranda giving Alex some valuable advice to survive in FBI.
