Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Dana Brody (credit only)


Afsal Hamid, the Syrian last survivor of Brody's prison guards and torturers, has been arrested and extradited by the Pakistani secret service. Saul Berenson can barely prevent Carrie, who steals psycho-pharmaceuticals from her father after her sister rationed hers, from wrecking her career by opposing Brody being used for the interrogation. It seems to yield results, but shortly after the deputy director allows Brody to vent his feelings to Afsal, the key prisoner, who seemed ready to trade information for his family's safety, commits suicide with a mysteriously smuggled-in mini-razor blade.

Blind Spot
24 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Carrie (Claire Danes) visits her father, Frank (James Rebhorn), with the intent of pilfering some of his pills (he also has bipolar disorder). She manages to get some, but her visit is cut short when she gets a call telling her that the CIA has Afsal Hamid (Waleed Zuaiter) in custody, who was the lone survivor of the raid where Brody (Damian Lewis) was rescued in Iraq.

Saul calls Carrie to inform her that Hamid is dead. Somehow he obtained a fragment of a razor blade and slashed his own wrist. Carrie, along with a team of agents, raid Raqim and Aileen's house but it's now empty. Carrie initially suspects a tip-off from within the CIA, especially with Hamid also mysteriously ending up dead.

Carrie goes to Langley and cleans out her office. She then shows up at her sister Maggie's (Amy Hargreaves) house, now an emotional wreck. In tears, she tells Maggie "I think I just quit my job". She complains about now having nobody's support, not even Saul's. The episode ends with Carrie unable to sleep and contemplating her future.
