Saul has only nine days left as interim CIA director and successor senator Andrew Lockhart opposes operation Majid, but the chief of staff agrees that Saul can continue the top-secret project so long. Saul also authorizes Quinn to lead a team to investigate Majid's suggestion that Brody didn't place the bomb and the real culprit is still in the States, handled by 'his' law firm. After Dar Adal 'warns' his golf contact, senior partner Leland Bennett, his deputy Paul Franklin is instructed to get rid of him. When he turns up armed, pregnant Carrie breaks orders and has to be shot, obsessed with the only chance to clear Brody. Saul's wife dumps her lover. Financial analyst Fara's Iranian exiled father finds out about her CIA employment when she's rebuked for taking sickies to mind sickly Mr. Sherazi.

The title of this episode, and the coded text message that Carrie receives from Franklin and responds to, come from the opening lines of a William Carlos Williams poem published in 1923. Only 16 words in length, and originally titled "XXII," the poem has become known by its most famous image. In a few brief, haiku-like images, the poem pictorially suggests an integral link between form and meaning, and the necessity of perception to life. See more
