Majid Javadi is firmly in Saul's grip and seems to run out of excuses to give in to blackmail, so he's put on an airplane back to Teheran as double agent. As the police found his family's corpses, Quinn must take the blame and invoke national security to go free. It works, but disgust him enough to consider leaving the CIA, yet he accepts to help find out what happened to Brody. Majid assures Carrie that not Brady, but henchmen of his law firm helped Abu Nasir's men bomb the CIA site. Confident Dar Adal deserts senator Andrew Lockhart when Saul rather keeps his successor-designate locked up 'accidentally' then call off operation Majid.

The title, "Gerontion," comes from a T.S. Eliot poem by the same name, published in 1920. In ancient Greek, it means "Little Old Man," and it opens with the speaker describing himself as "an old man in a dry month ... waiting for rain...." Like the more famous Eliot poem from the same period, "The Waste Land," this one contains ruminations about sexuality, and religious disillusion and despair. A pointed passage is: "After such knowledge, what forgiveness? Think now / History has many cunning passages, contrived corridors, / And issues, deceives with whispering ambitions, / Guides us by vanities." See more
You're not a fanatic. You're a pragmatist. Always have been.
Don't tell me what I am and what I am not.
Well, we're both old men. There's no disputing that.
It's the curse of old men to realize that in the end, we control nothing. So we lash out.
