Quantico is a drama series based in Quantico, Virginia. The show follows the lives of young FBI recruits for 21 weeks of training, as they strive to become special agents. Each trainee has hidden secrets, including the main character, Alex Parrish, who ends up being a suspect in a terrorist attack. The show begins to evolve into a bit of a mystery as trainees start to believe that Parrish was framed from someone in the academy itself, and bond together to figure out who the terrorist really is.

Throughout the season, Parrish is on the run, and while this is going on we get flashbacks of the recruits in training. The flashbacks follow Parrish throughout the process of narrowing down who the terrorist could be. The major characters include Alex’s love connection, Ryan Booth. They fell for each other when Parrish first started the academy.  There are also twins who are hiding that fact by trying to act as one person Yasmine Al Massri. Then, there is Alex’s best friend, Shelby, who is labeled as a “rich girl”. Each character adds to the mystery and keeps viewers wanting more episodes.

Throughout the series, there are many action scenes that add excitement and spark emotion alike. In the beginning, there is an action scene at Grand Central Station, and one of the characters’ bodies was found in the rubble after the explosion. Not only was this a plot twist, but it was also a devastating moment in the show.

When watching the series, it can be a bit confusing because there are so many characters to keep track of, but by the middle of the season or so, it becomes clearer.

The show returns on Sunday, September 25th 2016, which is just in time for you to binge watch the first season!
