In “Kumonk,” Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers) finally returned after a long time away. He met with the President and discussed the future of the task force, only to be interrupted by the arrival of his brother.

Meanwhile, Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) led an operation to uncover the collaborators’ plans to sink the President’s reputation. Also, she taught Owen Hall (Blair Underwood) to trust his instincts.

However, not all things went smoothly this week – Ryan watched Sasha die. Also, viewers finally learned what happened to Harry Doyle (Russell Tovey) in Central Park.

Following the explosive episode, showrunner Josh Safran talked about Caleb’s role in the coming episodes and how Sasha’s death will affect Ryan going forward.

“In [episode 19], Caleb decides that now that he knows about the team, he is a member of the team and not only a member, but somebody who has the right to suggest things and expect them to be done,” Safran told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s really fun to see him steal the reins in 19 and run with them.”

With Sasha’s death, Ryan figured out how to deal with mistrust and actually roll with it. He will be posting questions that the viewers have been asking in the past couple of episodes – “Was she an asset or do I care about her?”

“It’s steps on the path to Ryan growing,” Safran said, adding the accident will actually brim him to where we find him at the end of the current season. “Even though it didn’t look that way, that’s what you’re going to see from him. He really did like her and was affected by it, but it was about his emotional growth more than anything else.”

With all the collaborators unveiled, the group will use Clay and Maxine Griffin’s (Krysta Rodriguez) engagement party to lure them into one place. However, everyone's lives are put at risk when one member of the team makes a surprising decision.

The 19th episode of “Quantico” Season 2 airs on April 24, Monday.
