Caleb's Father Bribes His Son into Failing His Exams
Caleb is at the top of his class and will most likely do very well on his exams. His father is not so sure; he was there the last time Caleb failed at something big. He told his son that if he failed his exams and went to do something else that had nothing to do with the FBI, he could have his trust fund. That’d be $10k a month to sit around and do whatever he wanted. It’s a hard offer to pass up.

Caleb Can't Wait for His Father to Break Shelby's Heart
Shelby’s grateful to Caleb for not telling his father that he knows that he’s sleeping with his ex. Caleb didn’t do it for her; he did it for his mother. On the plus side, once his mother gets the democratic Vice President nomination, his father is going to drop Shelby like a bad habit and break her heart.

Raina Infiltrates the Terrorist Cell
Nimah has been working undercover in a local terrorist cell. After Alex and Simon find Raina, she makes the decision to go in and switch places. Before she could get out though, the leader comes back and tries to put the moves her. To complicate things, Shelby and Ryan burst in to say that Liam is onto them. They need to get out ASAP, but Simon won’t leave without Raina.

Is the Bomb Real or Part of the Exam?
For their final exams, each recruit was left a blank piece of paper and told to turn it in when they were done. No other instructions were given, not even what to fill out. Soon it became apparent they weren’t tasked with a writing assignment but something else. As they worked through the problem, one of the NATs decided he had had enough and left. Cue the fire alarm, the emergency hydraulic doors, and countdown timer under the NAT’s chair. Is this for real or just another one of the bureau’s tricks?

Simon Disarms the Bomb
Simon is the only person the room that has spent any significant time around bombs. That makes him the most qualified to try and disarm it. Simon was not able to stop it before the counter went to zero, but it didn’t matter because the bomb wasn’t real. This was all a test to see if the recruits would stick together and they did.

Ryan Tells Alex Everything
Alex couldn’t handle Ryan’s lies and half-truths and let him know as much. It was only right that Ryan got real with her. Someone above him really screwed up an operation in Chicago and people got hurt. Like any good soldier, did what his superior (Liam none-the-less) told him to do and took the blame. Fast-forward to Quantico and Liam told him that if Ryan wanted a future in the bureau, he would need to take the assignment to spy on Alex.
