Question: What can you tease for Quantico Season 3? –Sam
Ausiello: Fans of Johanna Braddy’s Shelby will be pleased to learn that she’ll have a lot more to do this season, if new showrunner Michael Seitzman has anything to say about it. Citing the time jump between the Season 2 finale and Thursday’s premiere, the executive producer previews that the FBI agent “went to Syria, for example, in those three years. There are things that happened there that made her mature and made her grow. There’s a really big thing that happened, which we learn about in [the premiere] that I don’t want to talk about because I don’t want to spoil anything for anybody, but there’s a giant life change for her.”

Anything on Quantico— Mark
When Code Black creator Michael Seitzman joined season 3 of Quantico as its new showrunner, he decided to pivot the series away from the look of its previous seasons. “I wanted to let the show evolve in the third season,” Seitzman says. “I thought, ‘Can I free the show of the trappings of every other spy show on television, which is a lot of screens and a lot of databases and a lot of steel and glass?’” In other words, say goodbye to scenes with newfangled tech; season 3 will take on more practical threats, beginning with a mysterious international arms dealer nicknamed The Widow.

PRE-FINALE: Showrunner Joshua Safran wants you to think of the rest of the spy drama’s season “kind of like a four-parter,” he says, starting with the pre-sweeps episode “MHORDER” (airing April 24). You’ll recall that the final moments of Episode 18 found the joint CIA-FBI task force in possession of all of the names of the collaborators (aka the bad guys).” In [Episode] 19, the team and the collaborators meet face-to-face. Once that happens, it sends us hurtling in a new direction.” He adds that Episode 20, which was directed by former Quantico writer Cherien Dabis, “pokes at a wound that is very fresh, and it is very emotional,” and that the hour has made everyone who has seen it cry. “It’s very complicated, because everybody on that episode has their own story,” Safran says. “For a bit it’s like you’re walking down different paths in the woods and you’ve lost your friends, then you all come together at the end.” But don’t get too comfortable there, Alex & Co.: There’s a time jump of “several months” between Episode 21 and the finale.


SEASON FINALE (MAY 15):
Safran says he shot the final episode two ways, just in case the ratings-challenged series doesn’t come back for a third season. As it stands, the hour ends in a cliffhanger. “If for some reason I hear that we’re not coming back before [it] airs, I will just literally cut that scene off the episode, so it will be like it never existed,” he tells TVLine.

We know Maxine isn’t evil but is there anything else you can tease about her involvement in Quantico‘s final episodes? — Harold
Showrunner Josh Safran promises Clay’s fiancé will be back for at least one more episode before the season finale to help the story come to a head in “an adult, mature way.” “All of the writers love Maxine,” he says. “If there was a third season of Quantico, she could fold into [the story] very easily.” After all, Maxine loved working undercover with Clay during their engagement party — even if they don’t work out, someone should recruit her to the Farm.

Will Caleb interact with anyone else on Quantico? — Andrew
Don’t worry: Caleb (Graham Rogers) will meet the rest of the task force — and he’ll have interactions with everyone from season 1. “It was totally about [connecting him with] Clay and Shelby, but we made sure he had moments with everybody,” EP Josh Safran says. “It’s so easy to write for Graham… Everyone was happy to see him.” And if that’s not enough reassurance, here’s one more tidbit: You’ll see Caleb sing in Monday night’s episode — and not just sing because he feels like singing. The tune will play a part in the task force’s new plan to take down the collaborators Sebastian named.

Now that Harry’s been revealed to be a British spy on Quantico, does that mean we’ll be seeing more of the MI-6? — Tessa
Pack your bags, because Quantico is about to go overseas. “Scenes are not going to transpire at MI-6, but we do get to go London for a little bit,” EP Josh Safran says. “You’ll learn about the MI-6, and we’ll meet [Harry’s] handler.” It’s a way of showing how season 2 is “really more about the CIA and American interests than it is about planting in other intelligence communities,” he says.

Anything on Quantico? — Katerina
Remember that warning about “grievous bodily harm”? You can expect to see it in the sixth episode, airing the Sunday after next, EP Josh Safran warns. According to him, it’s “the most gruesome one we’ve ever done… [Writer Beth Schacter and I] had seen it so many times, but we were cringing. It’s intense. In light of The Walking Dead, nothing is intense anymore, but it’s as close to that as we can get.”

What can you tease about the terrorist plot on Quantico? — Wade
You’ve probably guessed this already, but not everyone’s going to survive what’s coming. “Grievous bodily harm comes to one of our major characters in the first third of the season,” EP Josh Safran hints. “I’m shocked at what we’ve pulled off. I mean, I really thought for sure we had gone too far, but I guess we didn’t.” Even farther than the gutsy beheading in the premiere? Brace yourselves, Quantico fans. (And leave your guesses about the victim’s identity in the comments!)

Where We Left Off: Alex killed Liam, who revealed himself to be the terrorist/The Voice because he had become disillusioned with the FBI. Simon sacrificed himself by driving the nuke Liam had planted off a bridge. Alex moved back home and got recruited by the CIA.

What’s Next: Yes, Alex will be in the CIA. New faces, whose roles remain tightly under wraps, include Russell Tovey as a charming Artful Dodger type; Blair Underwood as CIA officer Owen Hall; and Aaron Diaz Leon as a photojournalist. “Season 2 is much more contained,” showrunner Josh Safran told TVGuide.com. “It unfolds slowly and it is not somebody on the run. … The CIA is about intelligence. It’s about how are you cultivating and using intelligence, which is a slower boil. It still has all of the great twists. It’s not a bomb going off every week.”

PRE-FINALE: The May 1 episode, “Drive,” finds the NATs dispatched to different field offices and — shocker! — Ryan and Alex find themselves working a case together. Don’t worry, EP Joshua Safran says: Despite their recent arguments/suspicions, Booth and Parrish “get on the same page pretty quickly” in the Quantico timeline… yet wind up in a one-on-one fight “that’s really incredible” in the present-day story. As the lead-up to the FBI academy’s graduation ceremony continues the next week, the trainees undergo perhaps their hardest test yet. “The FBI saves one specific assignment for last… which is basically discussing the darkest days you have as an agent,” Safran says, adding that the hour takes the characters to “a very dark and emotional place” and “foreshadows the terrorist event that happens in the pilot.”

SEASON FINALE (MAY 15): Safran offers this tease for the season-ender: “You will see some familiar faces from earlier in the season,” and those will include “flashbacks for a character that has recently perished.”
