Mossad Agent


In Tehran, Javadi has processed Brody and prepares to present him to his boss, Revolutionary Guards commanding general Danesh Akbari. Carrie enlists locally, with difficulty, Saul's financial analyst Sharazi's uncle Masud. Saul forces his adulterous wife's arrested Israeli lover Gene to get two of his Mossad contact there to help her, so they can supply Brody with a lethal arsenic dose. Javadi arranges for Akbari to meet Brody, but just out of reach, he drives off and sends Nicholas to his Iraqi brainwasher's widow Nassrin. Langley now believes Brody is a failure, a lost cause, and even a threat to asset Javadi, so Saul accepts he must be eliminated. Written by KGF Vissers

improvisation is not easy
7 February 2015 | by (a chair next to the computer) – See all my reviews

The little bits of panic and worry by Brody are quite interesting. He decides to use truth ( something he would waver on once his life went wild ) to earn the general's trust, then picks the only object within reach that looks solid enough to hurt the general: an astray.

See how dangerous tobacco related products can be to you? Then after finishing the job with a lovely pillow he puts the ashtray back really quietly, as if the noise will be more noticeable than the moment the general fell on the floor.

Cleaning up the blood? Couldn't the general have a box of facial tissues nearby? Good thing that water was there, and that the secretary had left her desk.

As this all played out I realized it was the second big-wig that Brody has killed in his own office. He's not bad for an amateur assassin.
