Clay, who just rushes out of the task force’s bunker in anger as sabotaging his relationship with his fiancee was in vain. I think I saw some tears there, but anyway, Shelby explains him and then reaches out to his soon-to-be wife Maxine and successfully persuades her to trust his fiancee.

Sasha and Ryan advance with their relationship, Alex asks Raina and Shelby to reach out to their sisters.  Raina is seen entering her apartment, which was set up by the two people who killed Leon. She is able to defend herself against one of them but the other one steps in and captures her. Is is true what Leon said? Are THEY coming for all of them? Leon is gone. Now Raina. Who’ll be next? Who are THEY? In the end, Harry calls Alex, telling her that he is quitting the task force. After exchanging goodbyes over the phone, Sebastian is seen holding Harry at gunpoint. He probably killed him, as Russel Tovey, who plays the character of Harry Doyle, has left Quantico. We didn’t see Dayana in this episode, as she was busy with a case and her absence would’ve exposed her cover.

Who is Sebastian working for? What will happen with Sasha and Ryan? What will be Raina’s fate? Too many questions.
