Episode guide[]

Carrie is still reeling from Saul's public disclosure of her bipolar disorder. In retaliation, she tells a reporter that Brody is innocent; the interview is interrupted by a group of policemen sent by Dar Adal, who have Carrie committed to a psychiatric facility for 24 hours. Quinn visits her there to warn her of the danger she is in, but an increasingly paranoid Carrie accuses him of having been sent there by Saul to threaten her. Saul visits Carrie's father and sister and tells them that Carrie is unstable, and that they must convince her to take her medication if they want her to get better. The following day, Carrie attends a psychiatric hearing to determine whether she should be released. When her father and sister tell her that they want her to get back on her regimen of lithium, she flies into a rage that ends with her being restrained and forcibly medicated. After witnessing this, Quinn informs Saul that he does not approve of what the agency is doing to Carrie, and that he intends to resign once his current objectives are completed.

As Dana tries to get back to normal following her release from the hospital, she chafes under Jessica's constant monitoring. She is especially upset that Jessica won't let her see Leo, now her boyfriend. One night, she runs away back to the hospital to see Leo, where they have sex. The next morning, the hospital staff finds them together, and send Dana home. At her wits' end, Jessica asks Dana what she wants from her. Dana replies that she wants Jessica to realize that she attempted suicide because she genuinely wanted to die, but being with Leo has restored her will to live.

Saul brings in Fara Sherazi, a Muslim financial analyst, to look into the transaction records of a bank tied to the terrorists who committed the Langley attack. During a meeting with the bank's management and legal teams, she bluntly tells the CEO that his bank is indirectly responsible for multiple acts of terrorism; he refuses to cooperate, however. That night, Quinn confronts the CEO and makes a veiled threat on his life while hinting that he was the one who killed the banker's associate in Caracas. The CEO then agrees to turn over all of his records to the CIA, from which they are able to find past transactions, originating from the Iranian government, being sent to associates of Abu Nazir.

Saul goes to see Carrie at the psychiatric ward and apologizes to her. Carrie, struggling to speak due to the medication, whispers, "Fuck... you... Saul".


Did the writers agree they were in love?

Alex Gansa: Absolutely. They believe there was a connection between them that was profound. When these two characters talk about some mundane future together, I think both of them are aware that it’s a self-delusion. It’s having a conversation about a future that they know they will never share, and yet it’s one that they want to have because it’s the natural conversation that one might have at that point in a relationship.


  • Peter: I went to Carrie's hearing today, and I saw her being hauled off, kicking and screaming.
  • Saul: I heard she lost it.
  • Peter: She didn't lose it. We did that to her.
  • Peter: We did it.
  • Peter: I would never bail on you in the middle of something, but I want you to know what's going on here is not okay with me.
  • Saul: [Saul sighs.] Peter... [sighs]
  • Saul: It's been a rough week. I'm aware.
  • Saul: But we're onto something. And if it leads to where I think, it will all have been worth it.
  • Peter: [Peter shaking head.] I don't know Saul.
  • Saul: Just have a little faith.
  • CEO: Who are you?
  • Quinn: [...]
  • CEO: Tell me who you are!
  • Quinn: It's aggravating, isn't it... when someone won't answer your questions.
  • Saul: I'm so sorry.
  • Carrie: Fuck... you, Saul.
  • Quinn to CEO: I want you to know... I try very hard to be patient with venal shitheads like you. But I can only do it so long. You have a good flight home.
