If you’re like us, dear readers, then you are still processing Sunday’s mid-season finale of ‘Quantico.’ We’d been eagerly anticipating episode 11 (which was titled ‘Inside’) all week because the show’s Twitter accounts had been promising all week that the bomber we’ve been wondering about for months would finally be revealed. So the big question of course was: did the show deliver on its promises?

The answer? “Sort of.”

We don’t know about you, dear readers, but we found it impossible to watch this week’s episode of ‘Quantico’ without reflecting on all of the events of the last week. It’s admittedly strange to watch a fictional drama about the FBI’s counterterrorism efforts that has the stereotyping of South Asians and Muslims as a central plotline just hours after the President of the United States delivered a primetime address from the Oval Office addressing all of those themes.

And… we’re back! We don’t know about you, but we were super antsy last Sunday without any ‘Quantico’ to look forward to. Fortunately for fans of television’s most confusing drama, Quantico didn’t lose a beat and dove right back into the action.

“In light of recent world events, the following drama contains particularly impactful subject matter.”

Those words flashed across the screen in the opening moments of this week’s episode of ‘Quantico,’ a show that can be triggering at the best of times and becomes even more so in light of Friday’s horrific terrorist attacks in Paris. After all, it would be hard to fault anyone for skipping a show built around solving the mystery of who decided to blow up New York’s Grand Central Terminal after watching a weekend’s worth of news updates from France.

(It also should be noted that while CBS decided to temporarily pull new episodes of ‘Supergirl’ and ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ because this week’s episodes had themes that closely resembled the events in Paris. Both ‘Quantico’ and ‘Homeland,’ two shows in which terrorism is a central theme, decided to stick with their original broadcast schedules.)

But back to our world of ridiculously attractive fictional FBI recruits. When we last left Quantico-land, Alex was struggling to lead Agent Ryan Booth to safety after he was shot while escaping a Queens row house-turned-terrorist cell. Sunday’s episode begins with a shot of an FBI control center buzzing with activity as they try to track Alex Parrish down.
