CLEOPATRA is the ninth episode of the second season of Quantico.


The recruits are schooled in the art of seduction, which Alex sees as a perfect opportunity to get closer to Owen, but will it threaten her relationship with Ryan? In the future, Alex finally gets the answers she’s been looking for about who and what the terrorists are on.



Owen and Angie tell the recruits about seduction. Each recruit is tasked with sleeping with another person. In the process, Sebastian meets a redhead woman who works as a senator's aide, Carly Klapp. Dayana later develops with a person named Kareem Johnson and knocks him unconscious. She then urges León to help her clean up the body. León, suspicious of Shelby, confronts her and asks if she is lying to him. However, she softens up to him and he leaves, spotting Nimah Amin, who walked into the house. Dayana later called someone and told that person that León is weak.


Alex is freed and taken back to the FBI office for interrogation. Interrogated by Ryan's ex wife, Hannah Wyland, she tells her about the terrorists, the hostage crisis, the hostages, her time at the Farm, and the AIC. Narrating her time back at the Farm, Alex also tells Hannah about Ryan, Harry Doyle, Leigh Davis, Jeremy Miller, Angie, and Surabaya.

Hannah, refusing to believe Alex, has Shelby find something that supports Alex's narrative. Shelby later finds out that the CLF is not the AIC, they are trying to take down the rogue group. In addition, she finds out that Dayana and Mike Murray (who was killed by the CLF in LCFLUTTER) were AIC agents who killed a CIA operative in Surabaya. Miranda later kidnaps Alex at gunpoint and admits that she is a terrorist.
