Storyline

Otto covers, gratefully, for Carrie who decides to work out who is after her in a homely forest retreat, alone with Jonas, who accepts with growing horror to let her interrupt psychiatric medication to 'be sharp', only to find her resisting him administering her a new dose, as agreed, after hallucinations of her victims, especially Aayan Ibrahim, leading to the useless . Quinn keeps eliminating Jihadists and is determined to locate Carrie, even if he must kidnap Jonas's kid son. Saul blames the Berlin station chief but arranges with Adal that Washington 'sacrifices' the US ambassador instead. When Jonas rushes home, hearing his son is missing, Quinn moves in, gets shot by Carrie but overpowers her. Turkish master hacker Numan delivers the CIA files to reporter Laura Sutton, but his vexed mate offers them for sale to a Russian diplomat. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Carrie Mathison: He was tortured, okay? He finally admitted I was the target, but was too scared to say who hired him.
Jonas Hollander: I don't understand. How does... How does that make him reliable?
Carrie Mathison: He had two secrets - one he could tell, one he was willing to die for.
Jonas Hollander: And did he? Die?
Carrie Mathison: Yeah, he was executed. He was shot in the face point-blank. That's what makes me believe him.
Jonas Hollander: Jesus.
Carrie Mathison: You wanted to know.

Carrie stops taking her medication… with the inevitable consequences
26 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the revelation that Carrie was the target of the attack in Lebanon she has returned to Germany and started to ponder who might have a motive to want her dead… it isn't long before the list is very long. Having sent her daughter back to the States she heads to a remote cottage with her boyfriend and tell him that she has stopped taking her medication; claiming that her mind is sharper when she is off them… unfortunately that also makes her increasingly manic.

Back in Berlin Saul is trying to find Carrie and dealing with having the station chief trying to go behind his back in order to save her position in Germany. Having decided that he needs her there he will have to find somebody else to be sacrificed to appease the Germans who are still furious that their link to the CIA was exposed. Quinn is also closing in on his next target.

So far this season Carrie has been quite rational but it isn't long after she stops taking her medication that things start to change; Claire Danes does a great job depicting Carrie as she becomes more and more manic. Alexander Fehling does a solid job as her boyfriend Jonas as he must come to terms with what Carrie has done in the past, deal with her increasingly irrational state and the realisation that whoever is after her might target those close to him to get to her. This part of the story is tense even before the potential threat arrives in the episode's gripping conclusion. The part of the story involving Saul and Station Chief Allison Carr is also interesting even though it is essentially office politics. Overall another solid episode that will leave the viewer keen to see what happens next.
