Episode guide

Zeroing in on the location of Belli (C.J. Wilson) via the phone trace, Quinn (Rupert Friend) ends up in a neighbourhood familiar to him. The GPS takes him to a diner where he catches up with a waitress (Erin Darke) who recognises him and calls him “Johnny”. Quinn then goes to a nearby house with a US flag posted outside. Knowing where a key is hidden, he gains access. Once inside, he has a flashback: a meeting he had in the same house with fellow black ops soldiers, with McClendon (Robert Knepper) there giving the orders. Back in present day, a group of men arrive at the house, compelling Quinn to sneak out through the garage, in which he sees a Medina Medley van.

Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) has a combative meeting with President-elect Keane (Elizabeth Marvel): Dar makes veiled threats after Keane accuses him of feeding her bad intelligence and leaking falsehoods to the press. Dar directs Brett O’Keefe (Jake Weber) to release the video of Andrew Keane’s final moments which has been manipulated to make him seem cowardly. With the backing of O’Keefe’s mass of social media accounts, the video quickly goes viral. Max (Maury Sterling) sees Dar talking to O’Keefe and sends video footage to Carrie, though a co-worker reports him for using a phone in a forbidden area.

Saul (Mandy Patinkin) prepares to leave the country and go into hiding, anticipating Carrie’s testimony which would implicate him. However, a final conversation with his ex-wife, Mira (Sarita Choudhury), causes him to have a change of heart. Saul goes to Carrie’s apartment; he lets himself in when Carrie does not answer the door. He notices a new correspondence from Max on Carrie’s laptop and watches the video of Dar conferring with O’Keefe.

Carrie (Claire Danes) gets dropped off to submit her deposition. Her driver makes a suspicious comment about confirming her appointment with child services to visit Frannie. Carrie calls and learns that the appointment was cancelled due to Frannie coming down with a fever. She gets sworn in but suddenly aborts the deposition and leaves. Rob (Hill Harper) demands an explanation, to which Carrie responds “my kid is sick. They still won’t let me see her”. Keane visits Carrie. Unable to change Carrie’s mind, Keane is able to surmise that Carrie is being blackmailed by Dar Adal. Not long after cancelling the deposition, Carrie hears from child services that there was a mistake, and she is allowed to see Frannie as scheduled. Upon returning home, Carrie is approached by Clarice (Mickey O’Hagan) who brings her to see Quinn. Quinn shows Carrie that he has secured a vantage point next door to the “flag house” with a sniper rifle pointed at the men inside.
