Carrie Mathison: [Saul and Estes question the validity of an asset's intel] It's not lost on me why people don't trust my judgment. Why you didn't even want me here.
Saul Berenson: Carrie...
Carrie Mathison: It's not fair, I know, for you to have to be the one to decide.
[Carrie starts to cry]
Carrie Mathison: It fucked me up, Saul. Being wrong about Brody, it really... it fucked me up. Because I have never been so sure... and so wrong. And it's that fact that I still can't get my head around. It makes me unable to trust my own thoughts. Every time I think I ...

Homeland Beirut Is Back
7 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Last week we saw Carrie back working for the CIA but she is cut off as she was unable to meet with Saul. Carrie meets up with the woman who is helping the CIA but she needs to get to a location that is closed off. She is looking for some protection from Carrie. Back in the States and Brody is at a fund raiser. Carrie gets back with Saul after escaping someone who was following her. Saul wants another meeting with the witness that Carrie met with and she tells him about the information she knows. Carrie calls David back at the base and they talk about the women's husband and what she thought she heard. Dana and Jessica go out to hang out with the vice-president's wife for a while. Back in Beirut and Carrie feels trapped and out of place as she stumbles around the room not uses to being her like she used to be. Looking for a way out or a lace that has breathable air. Carrie tells Saul that this whole Brody thing has messed her up as she thinks she is wrong and cannot do this anymore. Brody meets up with an old Army friend who asked him if he has read a report that is out about Walker. Brody is called into a group of people who watch an operation go on that has Carrie in the country so Brody might see she is working again. They are trying to get Abu Nazir who's team has taken over a street. During the mission it is not going well so they abort the mission because there is too many people who could get shoot. Brody sends a message that helps Nazir get away from being hit. Carrie when getting the wife takes matters into her own hands and goes looking in the apartment. Outside the car starts to get shacked because they stopped, they then have to drive away leaving Carrie by herself while shoots are fired at her as people run after her. She does get away with some evidence. Carrie goes home after this tense rid of emotions she was on in Beirut. Saul finds a video in the bag with Brody's tape of him admitting what he did. Tense episode whit a great ending.
