Carrie is suddenly nervous and Peter tells her she’s a pro and he trusts her. Little does he know the last time she tried to go to a bar she ended up hating her outfit so much she swallowed all her meds instead and then changed her mind about that too. Peter looks clear-eyed and radiates confidence in her though. Then he tells her he’s going to call the others so they can come in to watch her have drunk, nostalgia sex with a terrorist too.
We are treated to a vignette of Dana in bed receiving a text. I would hope it’s her absent dad wishing her a goodnight, but it’s VP Junior and he’s now got a pet name for her. Sally. As in Sally Hemmings. She texts him back and calls him “TJ”. Seriously? Politicians’ kids are fucked in the head.
Carrie enters the bar and Brody has a drink waiting for her. He clarifies that this is no booty call but then admits he is only there because his wife threw him out. She says that can’t be and calls them the new JFK and Jackie and he points out how that all ended up.
“Don’t worry, I never return library books”
He asks about work and she starts dropping hints about getting close to getting “the head of the snake”. She won’t be specific but will say he stole 8 years of Brody’s life. Brody looks extremely pained but then collects himself to goes on the offensive. He disarms her by apologizing for any pain he caused her and then starts grilling her about what shock treatment is like and how often and what colors do you see in your brain when they really juice you? Carrie seems to crack up a little as she tries to portray an air of casual calm while describing twice-weekly shock treatments. She manages to get through it, but Brody has decided something and immediately bids her goodnight and settles the bar bill.
Carrie is rattled and she calls back to tell Peter that she is sure that Brody made her during their little exchange. She says that they need to act now before he alerts his group, but Peter tells her to stand down. Let’s ask Saul how that works out.
“Well, she’s either going to bang him or build a logic nest in her apartment”
Ok, prediction: what’s the one thing an agent on your tail would NOT do? Well, wouldn’t do again? Sleep with you! I bet this is the other part of the preview, where she knocks on his door!
Brody is in his room with a seriously constipated look on his face. I think he’s pondering what his move should be when the whole of the CIA is probably tailing you. And a knock!
“You’re not the Thai ladyboy I ordered”
