ABC’s new thriller “Quantico” premiered on Sunday, but the audience is already perched on the edge of their seats for the next episode, waiting for another roller-coaster action to unfold. But if Josh Safran, show creator and executive producer, is to be believed, there will not be twists in every episode.

Spoiler alert:

Safran teased that Episode 2 will witness the entry of two more characters: Nathalie Vasquez (Annabelle Acosta) and Elias Harper (Rick Cosnett), Entertainment Weekly reported. Vasquez plays a tough cop from Texas who always wanted to be a part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). She becomes the adversary for Alex as she always strives to be the best, and is also an obstacle for all the other new recruits as well.

Meanwhile, we learn that Harper is not actually a trainee but is at the Quantico base. He has his eyes set on Simon Asher (Tate Ellington), because the latter is the first openly gay trainee in the FBI’s history. Harper, who is also openly gay, wants to know how Simon made it to the FBI. Safran said that in their research for the series, the FBI still does not have an openly gay agent trainee.

Talking about Nimah Amin (Yasmine al Massri) who has a twin sister Raina, Safran did not rule out the fact that it could be possible that one was good and the other evil. He also added that the audience will get to know them both individually, according to Hollywood Reporter. In the premiere episode, it was also revealed that Ryan Booth (Jake McLaughlin) is actually working as an undercover for Liam O’Conner (Josh Hopkins) to spy on Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra).

In another twist, Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers) gets thrown out of the Quantico base for his involvement in Eric Packer’s (Brain J. Smith) death. But, Safran has said that Haas would return in Episode 2 in a “surprising fashion.” Eric had a secret; he had raped a 14-year-old girl and got her pregnant. But that is not all, he forced her to abort, as a result of which she died, TV Line reported.

Safran added that all the FBI recruits are keeping a secret from their teammates, and that, after Eric’s death, there is constant fear amongst them about whether their secrets will come out in the most horrible manner. Meanwhile, talking about Alex’s character, Safran said that her run will be a “24/7 affair” and she will make some surprising enemies and friends on the way to prove herself innocent, E Online reported.
