While undercover, Ryan has to rely on Mike McQuigg to back him as Ryan tries to determine the source of a deadly strain of tuberculosis. "Fear and Flesh" is the second episode of Quantico's third season.
Ryan persuades Alex to help him rescue Shelby from a notorious international arms dealer known only as The Widow, who is holding her hostage – and in exchange for her release, she demands something that only Alex can provide.
Ryan, Raina, and Shelby are forced to hide at the Farm, switching up their location often, as the FBI has agents on the ground at the Farm looking for them. This makes stopping the collaborator's latest plan a little bit more difficult.
Alex continues to help Owen getting in touch with his instincts. In the process, the two of them have been getting closer. Will these two continue to stay partners or is there a romance on the horizon?
