Closing in on Abu Nazir
17 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the events of the previous episode Carrie can't accept that Abu Nazir might have escaped from the site where he had been holding her but several searches suggest that must be the case. When she finally accepts that he has got away she is convinced that he must have had help from somebody on the search team; the fact that one of them has driven off on their own suggests she was right but when they find the man it becomes clear that he is innocent. Once back at Langley it is time to interview Roya Hammad to see what she knows; it appears that Carrie's questions are getting nowhere but something Roya says suggests that Nazir may not have left the site at all and merely evaded the searches; Carrie will have to return for another look. While all this is going on Saul is being questioned under polygraph about various incidents that could end his career; it is clear CIA Director David Estes wants to get rid of him for looking into his plans to have Brody killed.

As we approach the final episode things are pretty tense and Carrie appears to be losing her grip on reality somewhat as she obsessively demands further searches; of course she could be proved right! With the net closing around Nazir the threat to Brody from Estes and his assassin Quinn rises again and if Brody is in danger perhaps others who know about Estes' plans could also be in danger. This episode had a bit less drama than the previous one but there was still enough action which leads to the death of a character I was certain would last till the end of the season… I still think there is enough drama left to give us an exciting season finale though.
