Shocking Beheading on ‘Quantico’ Season Premiere

The season premiere of Quantico features a shocking scene in the final moments, involving the first lady of the United States and raising the stakes for the ABC drama’s second season with a realistic looking terrorist threat.

The president and first lady were held hostage by the Citizen’s Liberation Front, who attacked the G4 summit and were demanding the release of war criminals in exchange for the hostages.

Even though the president ended up complying with the terrorists’ demands, they brought his wife to the stage, placed her in a kneeling position, and brought a machete down on her neck in the final moments of the show.

Quantico airs Sunday nights at 10:00 p.m./9:00 CT on ABC. Watch clips and full episodes of Quantico for free on Yahoo View.
