My Top Suspects:

ryan booth

  1. Ryan Booth

He still hasn’t done anything suspicious, so just like a scary movie rule, he’s the most suspicious.  Although in “Over” we saw him gain back his title from O’Connor, and yet he still decided to return to training.  Could it be love? Maybe. Could it be he needs more time to frame Alex?  Dun Dun Dun!

liam oconnor

  1. Liam O’Connor

We found a big secret this week, that O’Connor and Alex’s father botched a mission that caused a bombing in Omaha.  Although not the craziest bombshell, its a piece of evidence to keep an eye on.  I personally didn’t think that hearing this was a huge deal, perhaps O’Connor is really hiding something bigger and the bombing in Omaha is just a red herring.


  1. Simon Asher

Well if not looking suspicious is how you get on this list, I might have to revise next week as far as Simon goes.  We saw at the end of the episode, Simon take a phone call from a man that appeared to be building a bomb.  Simon mentioned that it might have been a mistake for him to go to Quantico, that he can’t help anybody there.  Help?  That sounds nice.  Not so fast Simon, you’re still on this list because you just seem to have too many secrets.

My Thoughts:

Things just got interesting with Alex turning herself in to the FBI.  It appears from the preview for next week’s episode that we are in for some torturing and mind games from our dear friends at the FBI.  Will they break Alex?  We saw in that clip that Ryan somehow ends up in their hands, are The Unknown not trustworthy?  Did something happen to them?

I have to admit, writing this wee’s “What We Learned” was exhausting.  So much happens in this show, in both the past and the present, its definitely hard to keep track.  It was interesting to see the twins out and about as themselves in “Over”.  I thought Nimah seemed like a completely different person, and she also has a level 5 clinger, oh hey Simon.

Can’t wait for next week’s episode, no more on the run, and every conversation should be very entertaining to watch.

Your Thoughts:

Who do you think is the terrorist inside of Quantico?  Let’s discuss.
