Now that Aasar Khan has identified Dennis Boyd as the American mole without giving up who Dennis' handler within the ISI is, Carrie has to decide how to proceed now that the Taliban have recaptured Saul. At this point, Carrie isn't willing to let Saul die, especially after an unexpected telephone call she receives from the States. She and the team have to decide how best to play Dennis with what scant hard evidence they have on hand as to his activities. Carrie and the team also have to be careful about Martha finding out that they know he is the mole, Martha who may support her husband despite their problems. Regardless of Dennis, Carrie may have no option but to proceed with the prisoner exchange, despite knowing that Saul did not want to be used as a pawn for negotiation. Through it all, each side may have cards up their sleeve to manipulate the situation to their desired end goal, which on one side may not be all it appears on the surface. Written by Huggo

Season 4 Contains Season 2's Addictive, Serialized Storytelling Technique
25 November 2014 | by RyanCShowersSee all my reviews

The second half of this season has an addictive, serialized storytelling technique, the same technique that made season 2 as great as it was. "There's Something Else Going On" sprouts with creativity and specializes in suspense, pressure, and tension. Claire Danes roars in the first half when she confronts and interrogates the man who switched Carrie's medication, causing her to spiral into a horrifying hallucination. The majority of the second half of "There's Something Going On" (or most of what you will remember from this episode) is the terrific prisoner exchange sequence. The gleaming camera work, the tender emotion found between Saul and Carrie, and quiet build-up make the extracting of Saul significant. The ending was exciting, though I knew once Saul was in the hands of the CIA that a twist would be coming, and sure enough, now we have the last bit of story to finish off the greatly improved season four.
