The CIA and FBI manhunt for Tom Walker continues after he managed to escape following his tracked telephone call with Helen. The resulting shooting at the mosque, which led to the death of two innocent mosque goers, is causing a public relations problem, especially as eyewitness accounts differ from that of the official FBI statement regarding whether the FBI had any provocation for shooting, and if the FBI indeed did shoot first. Despite knowing he is doing good work in the community, Carrie is certain the imam knows more than he is stating publicly about whether there was any relationship between Walker and the mosque. Saul thinks he knows a way for Carrie to get that information, as Carrie's heavy handed approach with the imam is getting her nowhere, he who wants some sort of justice for the shooting victims' families.

For the first time in five years, Brody (Damian Lewis) is given suitable living quarters. Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) puts him into a fully furnished bedroom and bathroom and gets him a shave and haircut. Nazir has a young son named Issa (Rohan Chand), who he introduces to Brody.

Carrie (Claire Danes) meets with Special Agent Hall (Billy Smith) from the FBI at the mosque. They review the SWAT Team's actions and how Walker (Chris Chalk) improbably escaped. They conclude that Walker must have had prior knowledge of the interior of the mosque. The imam (Sammy Sheik) of the mosque is outraged that two innocent worshipers were gunned down and is publicly disputing the FBI's claims that their agents did not shoot first but were merely returning fire.

Nazir ends the conversation with Brody. Al-Zahrani walks into the room and tells Brody that Vice President Walden is going to ask him to run for office. Brody is to accept the offer as a sign of his commitment to the cause. Brody goes home and explains his absence by telling Jessica he was mugged. Jessica tells him that there's a message for him on the voice mail from the Vice President.
