Carrie is in the room and flirting like mad and I can’t believe she’s going to have to bang him in front of her coworkers to save the mission but then! She blows the cover and straight up accuses him of being a terrorist! I was so wrong and I almost can’t believe this is happening that I’m wondering if it’s all a fantasy sequence! Things are going haywire as he attempts denial, but she clearly knows everything and then he just starts advancing towards her menacingly. She’s not scared because she knows Uncle Saul will never let her get hurt and she just keeps hammering home his treason and failures.
“You’re going to wish you ended up like JFK“
She uses his family and his former position as a soldier to shame him and then she calls him “special”. I think in the good way. Brody is baffled and says that he liked her, a line he probably learned from his daughter’s dating expertise, and then Carrie exclaims “I LOVED you”. And that’s when the feds burst in.
Worst date ever
The Control Room is watching in stunned horror. I think the intelligence of letting a discredited, mentally ill former agent back into the game is hitting Peter heavily. This certainly isn’t the big Nazir get that Estes was counting on for this mission to save his political hide.
“Why couldn’t she just take one for the team?”
While Brody’s getting his face ground into the carpet, Carrie makes sure to continue to shame him and issue threats for betraying his country. He gets the Black Hood of Due Process and is hustled out. If that hotel is like every other one, the people in the room next door got quite a show!
Or not, this is hardly the kinkiest moment in a hotel a white, married politician has ever had
So what happens next??? First, I am shocked she didn’t sleep with him to allay his fears and continue the mission! I guess she couldn’t bring herself to after all he put her through. Plus maybe he would’ve tried to off her at that point anyway? This was a great unexpected twist, and based on previews there is more mindfuckery coming. Maybe Brody will use his cool demeanor, terrorist training and Polygraph evasion abilities to convince them he can become a double secret agent! Estes is certainly going to feel pressured to find a CYA solution to this SNAFU, and might advocate something ill-advised. What role will Peter play? Emphasizing how much Estes relies on him makes me think he has some shady favors in his resume and maybe he will be asked to solve the Carrie issue somehow. Will she be re-discredited for this? Double secret probation??
