While they are all arguing…Simon marches in. He announces that he is “The one that planned Grand Central.” Everyone stops talking and stares at him in disbelief.
Simon explained that he planned a political act – when he was at Quantico – after everyone turned against him. He never was going to actually use it, but he had the bomb plans all written out.
