A Russian angle is introduced, but listening carefully seems to be a misdirection. Carrie and Dante organize an operation with an unexpected result. Keane continues her odd actions as the President. As a mid-season episode this is where the Producers have some leeway with the plot lines. Interesting as always parallel universe with some themes lifted from current events, and Clair Danes doesn't need to go into her "off the meds" hamming.
