Things were peachy keen for Alex (Priyanka Chopra) and Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) at the end of Season 1 of Quantico, but will that carry through Season 2?

Showrunner Josh Safran isn't promising anything, but he teases that Rylex will go through fewer ups and downs and twists and turns next season (so that probably means Ryan won't get shot twice in, like, three days again). "If Season 1 was fast, Season 2 will be slower, just merely by the nature of [Alex] being in the CIA and not on the run anymore," Safran tells TVGuide.com. "I think, if anything, we'd get to spend more time with the characters and relationships, and tackle them that way. And we'll see how her new role [in the CIA] affects them."

But perhaps it's a person who comes between them... like Russell Tovey's shifty, charismatic new character Harry Doyle? Is he Alex's asset? Handler? A fugitive? Her hot car hookup on her first day? (Déjà vu alert!) That would not surprise us at all.
