J.G. Edgars


As CIA section chief in Kabul, Carrie ignores warnings about major collateral damage to sanction a drone strike on a hard-to-find Taliban leader, resulting in mass killings at a wedding in his family in Pakistan, which she calls their own risk. Orphaned moderate med student Aayan Ibrahim, the target's cousin, recorded the attack on video, which his vindictive hothead relative Rahim posted on Internet behinds Ayyan's back. CIA informer-handler Sandy Bachman's identity becomes public and he's lynched by a mob, Quinn shoots two assailants during a disastrous attempt with Carrie to extract Sandy. CIA director Andrew Lockhart recalls both during the scandal investigation and orders Carrie to stay in the US, but Quinn gives her a tip to question archive-buried collaborator Hank Wonham.

Its NICE and now it also has an Indian touch of Characters
22 October 2014 | by (Greater Noida) – See all my reviews

Its good to see a show changing directions from particular story to another. The location in this new story is Kabul and Islamabad which has been shown very critically and detailed. It also contains some new brilliant characters like SURAJ SHARMA from LIFE OF PI. The characters from previous season are solid as well.The background sound is AMAZING and gives you a real feel of operation of a control room and other Places. The Look of Kabul and Islamabad is Amazing.There is a Tense situation throughout the whole episode which has been in every last season episodes and which makes you to watch the whole episode with a sense of Curiosity.It Looks Pretty good now and hope it will get better and interesting in upcoming episodes.
