Storyline

Saul hopes to be appointed regular CIA director when summoned to the presidential chief of staff's geese hunt, but senator Andrew Lockhart is the one toasted as nominee. Quinn is meanwhile taken into confidence and asked to supervise Carrie, who dumps her medication again. She even risks arousing suspicion from Iranian spy chief Majid Javadi's personal henchmen by abusing the 'yoga class' alibi to summon an FBI agent to check out runaway Dana, who is spooked by broadcast reports about lover Leo's allegedly fratricidal past, and dumps him as another 'liar'. Majid's men intrude at night to overpower and strip-search Carrie. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

FBI Agent Hall says that there's no reason to worry abound Dana having run away and dismisses Dana and her boyfriend as just "Romeo and Juliet," to which Carrie responds, "you know how Romeo and Juliet ends, don't you? Not well." Claire Danes (Carrie) played Juliet alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann's movie Romeo + Juliet (1996). See more »

Goofs

When Leo and Dana are in the gas station preparing to leave, it sounds like Leo calls Dana "Jess", Dana's mother's name. However, he actually yells "yes" after Dana asks him if his brother Phillip killed himself. See more »

Quotes

Saul Berenson: I need your eyes on Carrie.
Peter Quinn: Carrie? Why?
Saul Berenson: Because the Iranians are watching her, too.
Peter Quinn: For what reason?
Saul Berenson: They believe she's a disgraced CIA officer desperate enough to sell information.
Peter Quinn: No, that's crazy. Carrie would never in a million years...
Saul Berenson: But she would. 'Cause that was the play. We dangled her to draw the Iranians out.
