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

The story was shocking, but that was nothing close to Tehran
13 December 2013 | by (Iran) – See all my reviews

I liked the story. it was good and catchy somehow. but soooo many mistakes about Iran.

almost everything they showed about Iran is wrong. the streets are not like this. darvazeh ghar is not even close to this in the looks, people in this episode spoke stupid farsi - I'm Iranian and I assure you none of these actors where speaking fluently. some sentences were not even understandable. and also, a very big goof. in the scene that javadi and akbari are talking together about brody, javadi repeats this question twice, right after the other: "potentially, with huge propaganda value"...

and the last, but not least, in Farsi, breaking news is "خبر فوری", not "خبر عاجل". the latter is Arabic. like many other sentences that "Iranians" were saying.

I'm not saying this to say that it was bad. but they could at least try a little harder to use real Iranians. most of the Iranian cast were Arabs. I hate it to see that Iranians sunk so low that they are represented by Arabs. we have more than enough Iranians in America to help them.
