Last week, ABC shared photos and plot details for the September 25 season premiere of “Quantico.” While the photos signpost some key plot developments, the plot synopsis was fairly ambiguous.

The synopsis for “Lipstick,” the following week’s episode, is more specific. (Minor spoiler warning)

“The new CIA recruits begin running counter-surveillance exercises at The Farm while Alex and Ryan navigate their new relationship with each other,” says ABC of the October 2 broadcast. “In the future, Ryan and Raina try to disrupt the terrorists’ plan to blend in with hostages while trust becomes a deadly weapon, as not everyone is who they seem to be, on ‘Quantico.'”

The synopsis, notably, confirms plans to maintain the show’s two-timeline structure this season.

In the official press release, ABC also reiterates the official season two cast list:

Priyanka Chopra as Alex Parrish, Blair Underwood as Owen Hall, Aunjanue Ellis as Miranda Shaw, Jake McLaughlin as Ryan Booth, Johanna Braddy as Shelby Wyatt, Yasmine Al Massri as Nimah and Raina Amin, Russell Tovey as Harry Doyle, Aaron Diaz as Leon Velez and Pearl Thusi as Dayana Mampasi.

Entering its second season, “Quantico” will remain in its Sunday at 10PM ET timeslot.
