The flash forwards this season of “Quantico” have all been set in the same small section of New York City, where a hostage situation has erupted at the G20 Summit. Now though, it looks like the crisis may be over.
Thanks to Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) and Will’s (Jay Armstrong Johnson) unwillingness to kill innocents in their pursuit of the AIC, all the hostages have been released from the Summit, meaning that at least the immediate danger (a.k.a the missile threats and bioweapon) has passed.
The bad news? The members of the “terrorist” group hunting down the AIC have all merged back into the civilian crowd, making it nearly impossible to find them. Like any good CIA agent, they’re able to disappear without a trace. Even worse, the remaining members of the AIC might still be hiding in the crowd, so the mission to hunt them down is still on the agenda.

The mystery that still hasn’t been cleared up is how Ryan, Miranda (Aunjanue Ellis) and Nimah (Yasmine Al Massri) all found themselves caught up in a plot to take over the G20 Summit in the first place. The people they’re working with to hunt the AIC aren’t exactly cuddly — hello, they beheaded the First Lady! — so what could have driven them to pursue these rogue agents with little to no oversight? It’s all still completely hazy at this point.
As we hurtle towards the end of this crisis, we have to remember that showrunner Josh Safran confirmed that the flashbacks to the Farm would be ending soon. With only a few episodes left until we catch up to the present, we’re hoping this will all become clear.
Something that is thankfully already clear is our final opinion on the relationship that’s been building between Harry (Russell Tovey) and Sebastien (David Lim).

At first, we thought it would be an interesting dynamic of a suave seducer and a faithful man struggling with his own sexuality — but as Harry recently pointed out, that’s just not the case. Sebastien isn’t just struggling to accept that he’s attracted to men, he’s pretty actively against homosexuality in general. Religion and spirituality aside, it’s not exactly romantic that Sebastien considers Harry’s behavior as a whole to be sinful and wrong.
Now that Harry has realized it, we’re glad he took a stand for himself and decided to step back from a pretty problematic relationship. Still, we’ll miss the chemistry between those two.
“Quantico” airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
