Quantico season 3 episode 1 spoilers: The new journey for Alex Parrish

QuanticoQuantico season 3 episode 1 is only three weeks away from airing! Thursday, April 26 is the big premiere date and judging from some of the information that we’ve got all signs points towards this being a heck of a start to the season.

This premiere episode also marks a reset — there is a substantial time jump and, to go along with that, Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) is now in Italy. Her life has changed dramatically and for the first time in a while, she actually has something rare and elusive: Peace. She’s going to relish that, at least for a short period of time because Quantico would not be Quantico unless some serious stuff started to hit the fan. Chaos is what this character is going to be contending with in the reasonably near future courtesy of some new threats … and also the capture of someone she cares about: Shelby. Along the way this season you are going to see some familiar faces and then also a new one for the series: The excellent Marlee Matlin, who is joining the cast this season as former agent Jocelyn Turner. She has some connections to the central mythology of the story this year and there should be some fun stuff to explore as a result of that. (Still, it’s best not to get too far ahead of ourselves just yet.)

Want a little bit more insight? Then take a look at the Quantico season 3 episode 1 synopsis right now:

It’s been three years since American hero Alex Parrish has had to navigate the dangerous waters of the Central Intelligence Agency and put her life on the line for her country. She has been living a peaceful, anonymous life somewhere in Italy. However, Alex is forced to abandon this idyllic existence when Ryan persuades her to help him rescue Shelby from a notorious international arms dealer known only as The Widow, who is holding her hostage – and in exchange for her release she demands something that only Alex can provide. Ryan and Alex recruit Owen and Harry to help rescue their friend and defeat the villain. To help the cause, Owen brings in former agent Jocelyn Turner (Marlee Matlin), who has her own dark past with The Widow. A whole new future lies ahead for this team when they agree to work together as an elite black-ops task force. The thrilling, heart-stopping adventures continue when “Quantico” premieres for its third season, THURSDAY, APRIL 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

This is a new season and it’s certainly a new Quantico with so many changes to the cast and behind the scenes with Michael Seitzman in as showrunner. Nonetheless, much of the core of the series is still intact: Exciting drama, action, and plenty of government conspiracy that could veer in any direction.
