Quantico‘s big terrorist reveal feels more like a plot hole than a plot point

Well, we finally got to find out who’s been pulling Alex’s strings and it feels kind of like a cheat! From the beginning, we’ve been told that the terrorist was one of Parrish’s fellow NATs at Quantico

Warning: spoilers ahead!

And tonight’s episode started off with a bang when hottie, Drew Perales, showed up in a hospital with radiation burns — a sure fire sign he too had been in contact with the nuclear bomb — only to claim that fellow hottie, Agent Booth, was behind the whole awful terrorist plot!
Of course, when Parrish plugs the thumb drive Perales gives her into Booth’s computer, she realizes Booth is innocent — but first they have a seriously violent, knock-down brawl in his office where all that pent-up relationship angst results in a bunch of broken furniture and Booth getting handcuffed to his office door.

So you know what that means, right?

Yep, a few minutes later it’s revealed that Drew Perales is “The Voice”!

All I have to say about that is, seriously? He didn’t even show up until the mid-season return! And he spent most of that time as Parrish’s eye candy/booty call. He had a mysterious tremor, and a beef with O’Connor, but he didn’t seem the terrorist mastermind type.

Of course, that doesn’t mean he’s working alone… It’s actually a pretty safe bet that he’s got someone working on the inside, since he was kicked out of Quantico in last week’s episode.

And that means O’Connor is still under suspicion! Just because Parrish bought his sad alcoholic act doesn’t mean we’ve written him off our suspects list. Vasquez is totally a possibility as well — her supposed death by bombing has yet to be verified and she was way too casual about wearing that bomb vest.

I guess we’ll just have to wait to see if Perales’ inside man — or woman — is revealed next week…
