"Quantico" season 2 is venturing into interesting territory and this time the police procedural drama would feel just like one of the episodes in "How To Get Away With Murder." In the present timeline, Alex (Priyanka Chopra) remains to be one of the hostages and she needs to act quickly so she can come out of the situation unscathed. Meanwhile, at The Farm, Owen (Blair Underwood) tests the young recruits and their ability to leave a crime scene without getting caught.
"Quantico" Season 2 Spoilers
The fifth episode in "Quantico" season 2 could be the show's saving grace after sustaining a decline in viewership ratings. In the present timeline, Alex remains to be in a tight spot but things seem to be working better than she expected since Owen knows that Miranda (Aunjanue Ellis) is part of the terrorist group. Although the agency knows Miranda's loyalty is with the enemy camp, Alex continues to be in danger's way after she gets cornered by the terrorists.
Meanwhile, the timeline following Alex's CIA training reveals that Owen's idea of training the new recruits doesn't follow the conventional route. Alex, Ryan (Jake McLaughlin), and Harry (Russell Tovey) are left in a house with a dead body in it and they need to erase every piece of evidence that they have been in there.
What Lies Ahead For "Quantico"
Despite having great reviews and a good first season, it seems that "Quantico" is in trouble right now. The ratings are way lower than the first season indicating that the show is in danger. Based on the ratings, the number of viewers for the show continues to decrease with each episode.
"Quantico" season 2's premiere episode was lower by almost 50 percent compared to season 1. The number of viewers also has been steadily dropping in the current season. The show's premiere episode had about 3.6 million viewers while season 2, episode 4 only had approximately 2.8 million viewers. With nine more episodes to go before the close of the season, there's still hope for a renewal if the series bounces back and reclaims the viewers it lost.
"Quantico" season 2, episode 5 "KMForget" is scheduled to air on Sunday, Oct. 30 at ABC on a 10 p.m. ET timeslot.
