  • David, surrounded by members of his department, is basking in the success of the mission, which resulted in much of the terrorist network in the US being captured, including Roya. The fact of Abu Nazir not being among those captured just means that they have more work to do to complete the job. Regardless, Saul, who received confirmation from his old colleague Dar Adal, decides to confront David about why he would place Peter, who is from special ops, into the lead analyst position for this mission. With this part of the mission complete, Brody is free to return to his family, who are still at the safe house and where they will remain until imminent threat from Abu Nazir is clear. Their collective happiness with this part of the mission being successfully over is shattered when David, Saul and Peter find that Carrie is missing, seemingly kidnapped. This news gets directly to Brody from the kidnapper himself, Abu Nazir, who knows that Brody was directly responsible for the breakdown of their latest planned terrorist attack. Abu Nazir offers Brody a deal: Carrie's life for specific information that would lead to Walden's death. Brody has to decide what to do, factoring in that he knows that Abu Nazir will kill Carrie regardless of their deal. Meanwhile, Mike and Jessica have to decide what to do following their latest sexual liaison. And Dana finally decides to have a chat with Finn, who wants to clear the air with who he still wants to be his girlfriend.
