“People are so strange and so complicated that they’re actually… beautiful. Possibly even me”
Last time on Homeland a lot of CIA agents got killed trying to find clues at the Tinker Tailor Workshop and Carrie was none to happy with Brody. Brody, as usual, was none too happy. Also Dana found out her joyride cost an anonymous mother her life.
We open on Roya heavily breathing in a public park. Perhaps she just finished her daily jog with General Petraeus?
Spies love their military men!
Instead Brody jogs up and starts giving her shit about the slaughter in Gettysburg. Roya lets him know that the time for Nazir’s retribution is nigh and Brody’s help will be required, so he needs to buckle down and stop worrying about a few puny American lives. Also he has a charity event coming up that she warns him to “be happy” at. Talk about Mission Impossible.
We now have Saul being admitted into a locked down facility to meet with someone described as a “spitter”.
Not as sexy as it sounded
Turns out, it’s Eileen, the white girl who was assisting Nazir’s original plot because she grew up in the Middle East and hated the white establishment or they wouldn’t let her ride a horse or something. Saul got her to crack during the road trip he took to bring her in from her flight to the border. Seems she has the long arm of the law to contend with now. And it’s lodged snugly in her colon.
Saul sits down with her and asks about her health. Turns out being caught as a terrorist spy doesn’t get you the Martha Stewart treatment. Her eyes are shot from 23hr days of solitary confinement in the dark. Saul ignores her pleas of blindness, and tries to get her to recognize the mystery sunglass man, but she sees this as a bargaining table.
It’s just a regular table, but she’s mostly blind
Saul promises her a cell with a view of the outside world in return for her knowledge.
Carrie is pacing Quinn’s hospital room trying desperately to figure this all out. She dumps a bunch of photos in his lap while he tries to call the nurse for help. We find out the other recognizable character in the ambush (Danny?) is in bad shape and probably won’t survive. They discuss what could possibly have been in the giant box the terrorists liberated and based on the size and apparent weight it might be enough C4 to level either a synagogue or an Embassy. They are really beefing up the design on synagogues lately!
“This is all you brought me to jerk off to?”
