To Quinn's disgust, Carrie shamelessly seduces innocent virgin Aayan Ibrahim into bed to win his trust. Saul tails criminal ICI-henchman Farhad Ghazi at the airport, but ends up his captive without any CIA staff noticing. Quinn and Fara's stakeout meanwhile yields the imam who accompanied Ayaan's most-wanted uncle. Ambassador Boyd's husband Dennis finds her neither pleased nor surprised when he announces he's staying, indeed having missed out on an academic new chance, but does well as ICI spy.

User Reviews

Absolutely great

This series is now getting good. Read some reviews where people blamed Carrie to be one exploiting. I guess they don't know how a teenage mind works in country in Indian subcontinent. When it comes to lust, they are simply clueless about things going around. Great writing. I am just waiting how the series gonna pan out with Saul in kidnapped in Taliban province. However, I am not that happy with role of the supporting casts. This season is completely working in a military espionage angle instead of traditional spy work. It is getting more like an black ops of homeland security than a CIA operation. Let's see what the next 7 episodes bring in.
