Quantico Season 1 Spoilers Simon Israel

Quantico: What's Simon Plotting? and 4 More Burning Questions Answered

If TVLine were an episode of Quantico, this would be the point in the episode where Alex deduces that we’re hiding something — and she’d be right.

Fresh off last night’s huge episode (Miranda attacked! Caleb screwing around with Scientology! Ryan on a ‘copter! Alex in FBI custody!), we’ve got even more intel about episodes ahead.

Read on for quick answers to five lingering questions, straight from executive producer Joshua Safran. And if you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out our post mortem with him, as well.

WHAT WAS SIMON’S PHONE CALL WITH OREN ALL ABOUT? | You’ll remember the Hasidic Jewish man as the wire specialist with whom Simon conferred in the present-day storyline; he’s the person who informed Alex that the wire found at her apartment was made by Shelby’s family’s company. Safran won’t give us the exact nature of the men’s relationship, or whether it began during Simon’s time in Israel, but he offers this: “I will say that story comes to a rapid boil very fast.”

WHERE IS RYAN’S HELICOPTER GOING? | Alex tricked a wounded Ryan into taking The Unknown’s chopper to safety while she moved forward with turning herself in. But will Booth go along with the plan? And where does the ‘copter wind up? “I can tell you that where it’s headed, it doesn’t make it,” Safran says.

WAIT, CALEB WAS IN A CULT? | Yep, Safran says, young Haas was being painfully honest in that Quantico-set scene with Shelby. “It’s a rare character that will use their vulnerability as a lie on this show. When people really get to the truth, it’s the truth.”

Quantico Season 1 SpoilersSO THAT SHELBY-CLAYTON THING ISN’T AS SERIOUS AS WE THOUGHT? | It would appear not, given the email that Caleb sees while scrubbing his dad’s account. “That’s a season-long story that we’re telling,” the EP says. “You see the beautiful scene where Caleb’s opening up to Shelby intercut directly with him never wanting to speak to her again, and you feel how sad that is. To me, that’s the stuff that gets us the most excited about the show.”

HAS CHARLIE JOINED WITH A TERRORIST GROUP? | Before you decry Miranda’s son for bloodying his mom and running off to do terrible things, “There are many, many possibilities that what you think happened didn’t exactly happen,” Safran says. “That’s the story we’ve been telling with Miranda all along: How well does she know her son? But more than that, it’s the way in which what she believes is challenged by what she might not want to see.”

    Will Quantico air originals in January, or is it going on hiatus like OUAT?

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    I knew Simon is the one character I dislike the most on Quantico. Guess I won that bet.

  3. LADY_in_MD says:

    Ok I really thought I knew who is the bomber but this episode now has me thinking differently I really enjoy this show all the twists keep it fresh I can’t believe Alex turned herself in! I wonder if Caleb is going to tell about the email or find out on his own who used Alex’s ID

  4. Spence says:

    My bet is on Booth being the bomber, or guilty in some way. He’s the only main NAT that hasn’t been given the possibly-guilty episode like Shelby, Simon, the twins, and Caleb and he would truly be shocking!

    • Stacy says:

      I like this theory, especially given that in the pilot she calls him slippery and deems him untrustworthy. But if he was found shot in her apartment, why is he helping her escape instead of sticking to the story that she’s a terrorist?

  5. Lena says:

    when will someone ask Ryan who shot him in Alex’s apartment?! it’s like they’ve all forgotten he might have seen the person framing Alex??

    • Stacy says:

      Very good question!

    • Heather says:

      They did ask him in the second episode. Alex called him in the hospital and he said that he had a plan that would buy her more time. His plan was to name her as the person that shot him. That is one of the main reasons that the FBI is so sure that Alex is guilty. How Booth thought that this would help Alex, I have no idea.

  6. Stacy says:

    Does this show remind anyone else of Reunion, but with higher stakes?

  7. bonnie says:

    im thinking the bomber is Miranda’s son

  8. John NYC says:

    Present day events are taking place over a day or so. So as the training continues the time left between the flashback and present day gets smaller and smaller.

    Beginning at the start of the training, longer ago so more months. At the end of training, AFTER all the months of training, there will be a smaller amount of time left. Fewer months.

    Like June is more months away from today that August?

    What were the last few sentences that were said on the season finale. Could not understand them rewound it 20 times. What building was hit ????
