On the Quantico episode “Alex,” after Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) testifies at a congressional hearing about the terrorist bombings at Grand Central Station, a new group of elite recruits joins Alex and her classmates at Quantico. Not everyone is welcomed with open arms. Tension and competition arise. Speaking of tension, Senator Claire Haas reappears. On the Winter Finale episode, Claire threatened to destroy Shelby (Johanna Braddy) who was having an affair with the Senator’s husband Clayton Haas (Mark Pellegrino). Senator Haas hasn’t forgotten.
Senator Claire Haas is portrayed by Marcia Cross. The redheaded actress is best known for her roles on Desperate Housewives (Bree Van De Kamp), Everwood (Dr. Linda Abbott), Melrose Place (Dr. Kimberly Shaw), and Knots Landing (Victoria Broyelard). Fun fact about Cross: She earned a Master’s degree in psychology from Antioch University in Los Angeles. Quantico airs Sundays at 10pm on ABC.
