At Quantico, the NATS team up for defensive driving lessons while tensions between Liam and Drew explode, resulting in shocking admissions and consequences. In the future, Simon grapples with his new reality in the aftermath of what’s transpired. Even though his friends try and help him, it’s uncertain he will ever be the same again.
Miranda tells Ryan and Nimah that Alex did not show up to work today and that the FBI received a request for emergency leave from Natalie. Ryan and Nimah track Alex to Vermont, where she has gone to meet Simon. Alex asks Simon to help her, before Nimah drives her back home. Simon decides to destroy his cabin and comes to Alex's apartment. As the terrorist calls, Simon plugs something into Alex's phone and then tells her to pick up. At Quantico, the class works on suspect interrogation and court trials. Nimah finds that Raina has been meeting with Charlie's kidnappers, at Miranda's request, and Will finds that Caleb has a second persona which he uses to meet with Samar. Shelby reveals to Iris the story about Samar. Alex gets information about the FBI's Chicago case from Liam, which results in Drew confronting Liam during class, as Liam was responsible for supplying the guns that shot Drew's fiancée.
