ABC’s new series “Quantico’s” Episode 4, titled “Kill,” witnesses a build-up of suspense as Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) questions the innocence of one of her classmates. As she continues to search for clues, she finally finds one that questions the innocence one of her closest classmates, may be the terrorist who bombed Grand Central. Alex also thinks of leaving the Quantico base.

The episode, like the rest of the series, unfolds through two concurrent timelines: flashback and flash forward.  At Quantico, the recruits are tasked with performing a hostage rescue training exercise that shakes Alex, making her question her ability and whether she should quit Quantico.

In the present, agent O’Connor wakes up the recruits with a surprise early morning gun test. After her nightmare about shooting her dad, Alex is ready for the test.
