I want to shut my door, get under a blanket, and be woken up on Tuesday morning, two days later, so I don?t have to go through the process of ?Oh my God, it?s going to air,? and, ?Oh my God, it?s this scene,? and, ?Oh my God, what are people saying?!,?? the report further stated.
Alex Parrish (Priyanka Chopra) is going to the airport to catch a flight to Quantico, Virginia, and join the FBI academy ? will be the chief suspect in a terrorist explosion that detonates the area around Manhattan’s Grand Central Station during the Democratic Convention, reports People.
