    I'm so glad they wrapped up the Season 1 story line. I almost gave up on the show several times during the season, but I really wanted to know who was setting Alex up.

    Not sorry to see Liam was the bad guy, and that Alex and Ryan took him out. Very sorry that Simon was killed off. The whole story was pretty far fetched:D but I like the characters and want to see what happens to them next.

    Will be interesting to see if Alex goes to work for the CIA in season 2. Wonder if season 2 will focus on taking down Caleb's Mom (the VP) and reuniting Shelby with her Mom (parents?). I hope those stories don't just get dropped.

    So if Alex goes to work for the CIA, will they rename the show "Langley"?

    This show was my guilty pleasure. I was happy with the wrap-up.

    Langely is the headquarters; the training facility is called "The Farm".

    CIA has no remit to deal with criminal or domestic issues. But television writers are universally uninformed of this fact, so I wouldn't be surprised if Alex joins up.

    Maybe the CIA will manage to get Alex reinstated into the FBI, as an instructor at Quantico, where she'll actually be a CIA agent investigating (fill in details here).

    It is a TV fact that the CIA routinely violates that law, sometimes even mentioning it.

    The episode title is always the last thing said in the episode.
    The show people said Alex's yes to the job offer should be assumed.

    Here is what I understood when this show came on the air.

    Each new season of Quantico will have brand new characters (as in new cadets joining the FBI) and a brand new story line.

    In order for this to pan out, then what happens to Alex Parrish is besides the point as she won't be part of the story anymore.....

    .... Or so they said (the producers and writers) when the show started.

    Then again, Tim Kring said the same thing about "Heroes" when the show first aired. Season 2 would have been the story of new characters. This never panned out (due to the writer's strike) and the show ended quickly thereafter.

    I'd be ok with either of those. I like Alex, Shelby, Caleb, etc. and would like to see what happens to them next. But a whole new class of cadets could be interesting, too. I hope they don't try to combine the 2 (new cadets and continuing stories of Alex et al.)

    Alex is the only reason that I watch the show.

    I like the show for many reasons but Priyanka is right at the top of that list. I guess this means I will have to see the Baywatch movie.....

    I did a little search and the closest rumor I found was only found in the Google cache - the article itself was already gone. And what it said was 'Quantico' Season 2 would have new plot (of course) and that the show will have a new story line every season (not terribly surprising) with Priyanka Chopra's character as the “focal point”.

    Coincidentally, this morning I just saw her on the cover of Time magazine, and there is a blurb about her inside, written by Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, aka the new Mitch Buchannon. I hope she is back for S2 of Quantico, but not sure if I can stomach Baywatch.

    This is what the show's creator and show runner was saying early on:

    Welcome to Quantico, TV's knottiest new thriller

    I remember it, because I have this issue of the magazine. His words, not mine:
