RESISTANCE is the twenty-second episode and the season finale of the second season of Quantico.


It’s Alex and the team’s last stand against the Collaborators at the Constitutional Convention, where a new amendment to the Constitution threatens every American’s freedom.


In the days leading to the convention, the team starts vetting for Roarke's new government agency, while secretly trying to stop Roarke from getting the votes needed to allow the Convention. However, their plan is foiled, thanks to hidden microphones. The team, with help from Will and Iris Chang, decide to use an indirect approach. Will and Iris pick up Peter Theo from a bar, and locate incriminating evidence of Roarke, which they give to the FSB, in exchange for them requesting Roarke to add a modification to the new Constitution. At the convention, Roarke's conversation with the FSB is recorded. Alex publicly broadcasts Roarke's recordings and emails the evidence to the ACLU and other rights organizations, before having Miranda fake her death. Roarke, not willing to face the press or the police, commits suicide. Two months later, the rest of the team, including Maxine, Raina, and Nimah, are celebrating in the bunker, while Ryan joins Alex on a plane.
