At Quantico, Caleb's doubts over Shelby rise due to her stubbornness during a hostages in airplane exercise for recruit pairs, which turns out an impossible 'Kobayashi Maru' exercise for the trainees. To Caleb's surprise, Will studied his fake double, insists to take over to infiltrate the cult as the leader knows Caleb but may accidentally give the game away. In New York, Alex and her hesitant-rebellious FBI supervisor Hannah Wyland must obey the terrorist's voice to plant a closed envelope in the audience at Senator Haas's next electoral rally, totally lose control and the deputy director's confidence while Simon analysis the risk of the chip inside, and Ryan, who is dear to both, grows utterly suspicious of Alex and feels obliged to turn against her as loose canon, and the chip proves more clever then feared.

Quantico: Clue
14 August 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Quantico goes all Star Trek with the Kobayashi Maru exercise for the trainees. A test in crisis management as they work in pairs to take down a plane hijacker. A test the trainees find out which is uncrackable unless you are Captain Kirk and break in the night before and cheat the test.

Alex has been directed by the voice to get to Senator Haas and plant something on her, even the high ranking FBI agent Hannah Wyland who has been very suspicious of Alex feels something is wrong and agrees to help out Alex. It really does seem that Alex somehow gets all the breaks.

It is Ryan who has slowly getting suspicious of Alex and getting more concerned that she is up to something and pursuing her.

The episode ends with some tension and clever twists which might make more than Senator Haas's temperature rise but parts of it dragged as the Kobayashi Maru bit dragged on for a bit.
