Having never seen How To Get Away With Murder, or Grey's Anatomy, I'm unsullied as to 'old hat formulaic retread'. I was interested enough to add it to my DVR, because I'm curious to see who the terrorist really is. I clearly wasn't paying close enough attention, because the gay/maybe not gay agent kissing scene seemed off to me, but I couldn't tell why. I realize after reading that the man essentially took a selfie while kissing a total stranger, which explains the baffled expression as the recruit walked away. I thought he was just being a jerk. His overly obvious interest in what turns out to be the twins in the single room is interesting to me. There's something going on there!
Thank you to whomever pointed out the Stargate: Universe role. That was driving me insane. I knew I'd seen him somewhere and couldn't for the life of me remember.
The fact that the FBI failed to notice that a recruit hadn't turned in his pistol and retrieved his "red handle" was a huge issue for me. To make their plot work, they made the elite academy look inept. That would have been spotted almost as soon as the last recruit left the armory, triggering a 'lockdown' and a search.
Still, I'm in...for now.
