(TV Series)


Plot Summary

  • 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. Meanwhile, Walker has retreated to the woods to calibrate his firearm. And Brody, out grocery shopping on his own, is violently mugged. That mugging and resulting kidnapping is not by accident, the situation which makes him reminisce about his previous encounter with Abu Nazir and Nazir's son Issa, which has led to where he is today.
