Peter stuns Carrie by revealing he was ordered to execute her in Saul's exclusive way. Before staging her death, even for daughter Franny, she insists to check up on the order, which leads to Peter barely surviving a shootout. After consulting Israel, Saul's team abuses Syrian general Youssef's stay in Lausanne for his daughter's surgery to recruit him as Alawite alternative for monstrous president Assad, but his plane has a shattering end destination. Activist Numan is horrified to discover his CIA files didn't reach the reporter because his cahoot Korzenik stole the memory stick to sell to the Russians, but they tortured him to get to the copy before executing him and the witness.
