The latest episode of Priyanka Chopra's Quantico season 3 has not gone down well with many viewers of the show. The episode, which aired on June 1, shows 'Indian nationalists' plotting a bomb blast in Manhattan in order to blame it on Pakistan.

"What the hell was this episode of #Quantico .. they tried to show ‘Indian nationalists’ (their term) trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan.. I don’t even know what sort of ridiculous narrative was this episode trying to set.. nonsensical stuff," read one of the tweets criticising the show's narrative.
