Readers, we’ve long shaken our heads at Alex Parrish’s inability to trust people. Throughout the show to date, she’s repeatedly held people at arm’s length and has only confided in others when there was either no other option or she was in extreme emotional distress. All of this made the first moments of Sunday’s episode, titled “Care”, extremely difficult to watch.

You’d be forgiven, Quantico fans, for wanting a respite from horrible violence and destruction after witnessing Natalie’s death. But there were many, many signs leading up to last night’s episode that indicated it wasn’t to be.

Creator Joshua Safran tweeted that Sunday’s episode (appropriately titled ‘Turn’) was pivotal, and show promos hinted at another death. For viewers who tend to get anxious while watching (like yours truly) these weren’t good signs.

Is there a more perfect gateway for a host of metaphors than having the NATs of ‘Quantico’ take a defensive driving class?

That’s exactly how Sunday’s episode (titled ‘Answer’) began. We’ve known for weeks that there have been intense tensions between Nimah and Raina, and their approach to driving truly reflected that. (And I can’t be the only one who noticed that the twins no longer sit together during class anymore.)

When it came to the issues that matter to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, the autopsy vowed to embrace comprehensive immigration reform and recommended that the GOP be more inclusive of the community in party messaging and flexibility in party policies. Basically, it recommended they be more like Democrats.
