Now Quinn remembers his near gas-poisoning, the nightmares get even worse, and his lust for unresponsive 'nurse' Carrie. Dar briefs the president-elect and chief of staff Rob Emmons on nuclear security, notably Iran and North Korea. At an Abu Dhabi conference, Saul gets to question Mossad-caught rogue Iranian arms buyer Farhad Nafisi, open to blackmail on his affair with an Isreali agent, who convincingly claims there never was an actual Iranaian nuclear program, just a deal to stop the sanctions, but Saul spots an oddity and goes check in the West Bank. Sekou is desperate and furious when Carrie admits her intervention wrecked even his change at a plea bargain. Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

We get your agenda loud and clear.
13 February 2017 | by lifesshortgofastSee all my reviews

The strength of this show used to be the vulnerability and imperfections of it's characters regardless of the personal political agenda, beliefs or message of the writers or producers. Perhaps today that's no longer possible. Perhaps today it's all about 'hooray for my side'. I'm sure it meaningless but this show has lost one loyal viewer who's watched since the show's beginning. I suspect it's not only one. In my opinion there's an blatantly obvious pattern with the current cast of characters. The good people, with their only good intentions, and the bad people who's ideology blinds them to anything but their own self-serving agenda. A wise old journalist once said "in seeking the truth you have to get both sides of the story". In my opinion good drama is much the same. No spoiler here. Cheers.
