If the terms of a hostage trade seem too good to be true, then they probably are.
On Sunday's new episode of Quantico, the terrorists offer to trade 1,600 (!) hostages for Eric Boyer (Derek Klena), whom showrunner Josh Safran has described as "our version of Assange or Snowden." Everyone knows this is a bad idea — made even worse with Raina (Yasmine Al Massri) fronting the hostages — but nevertheless, Miranda (Aunjanue Ellis), still shady AF, agrees to it. In our exclusive sneak peek, she reveals her terms, with Boyer in her arms.
"For every 10 hostages you release, we'll take one foot forward with Boyer," she says. "When all the hostages have been freed, we'll fall back and leave Boyer in your custody."
Yeah, this is not going to end well.
Quantico airs Sundays at 10/9c on ABC.
