After Carrie is able to convince Quinn not to detonate the bomb that would have killed Haqqani, she knowing that there is no way Quinn would have made it out of the situation alive, she loses track of him and currently has no idea of his whereabouts. Now back in the States, Carrie wants to put the recent events of Pakistan behind her, instead focusing on reestablishing her mother-daughter relationship with Franny while helping Maggie prepare for their father's funeral. Two people show up unexpectedly for the funeral, both who want to establish or reestablish as the case may be a personal relationship with Carrie. Although reluctant to begin either of those two relationships on initial thought, Carrie decides at least to talk to the two individuals in question to gather more information on the situation.

This was so bad I'm writing my first review on IMDb in 10 years
8 January 2015 | by archangel1688See all my reviews

I've never written a review of anything on IMDb before, because everything that needs to be said has usually already been said. With this episode, there's no number of reviews that can make it worse, and the writers and producers of the show need to know that. This made no sense at all. How did Dar know Haqqani's location a day after he bombed the embassy. How could he have been authorized to strike a deal with him. How could Saul even pretend to play along with that? Who cares about Carrie's mother and new half brother? Who jumps to conclusions like Peter did? Nothing in this episode made any sense. I would really like to hear an interview of the producers/writers explaining this episode and what their thought process was.
