Saul promises to have the best eavesdropping team on Brody and that can only mean one thing, we have Virgil and his lackey back! Estes proves he’s no dummy and doesn’t even bother to ask if Carrie knows about this.
Brody enters his wife’s bedroom with a coffee and an apology. She asks for the espresso, lol! He really has picked up a few tricks after being out of civilization so long.
“This is just shoe polish, I really though you’d go for the apology”
Jessica is at the end of her rope and is ready to end the marriage. She tells Brody that he has lost her trust and has one chance to say something true to her now, or pack his bags. Brody just tears up and can’t bring himself to either lie to her or reveal his secrets.
“I hate your new haircut”
Outside Dana and her ne’er-do-well public school boyfriend are rehashing the events leading to Brody’s woodshed banishment. Dana is disenchanted with her father’s behavior and doesn’t even want to get high. It’s starting to look like her life is too complicated to be paired up with a townie stoner anymore. Then the real mystery is solved! Apparently the brother is still alive!
“Did anyone miss me in the past month?”
Dana runs off to catch a ride to school with Dear Old Dad, but apparently the son is either not in school, doesn’t get chauffered there like Dana, or has again ceased to exist. Dana notes the duffel in the backseat as a bad sign and Brody tries to make lame excuses for the situation between himself and her mother. Dana isn’t interested and she gets out and remarks that his car smells like smoke.
Where there’s smoke, there’s treason
I’m trying to remember if he burned that guy or something but then I remember the tobacco pouch. The tailor must have smoked in his car at some point. That’s the trouble with suicide bombers, they aren’t very good at covering their tracks. Dana runs off to be met by the new love interest, VP Junior who trades witty banter with her about slavery, rape and pop quizzes.
Oh, to be young again
Carrie is meeting up with our favorite spies, Virgil and Max! They congratulate her on actually being right and she is in a very officious and happy mood. They enter a control room that looks sleek and high-tech. They find Saul and also some stooge Estes put in charge of the operation. Carrie is indignant since she was the only one who ran this operation (illegally) until now.
“I’m Peter, the guy you’re going to end up sleeping with”
