The target is discovered
Tweekums3 December 2012
Warning: Spoilers
After Brody was flown off at the end of the previous episode the CIA start to suspect that the terrorists have killed him; then, just as they were preparing to arrest Roya, Brody calls saying he is safe but demanding that his family are taken somewhere safe. When he comes in they are shocked to learn that he met with terrorist leader Abu Nazir. He also knows the target; three hundred marines who are returning after their tour in Afghanistan. As if a potential terrorist attack wasn't enough Virgil investigates Quinn and is worried enough by what he finds to involve Saul… Quinn certainly isn't the mere analyst he claimed; the only question is; 'who will he be a danger too?'.

This was a fairly gripping episode; I particularly liked the sub plot involving Quinn; there has always been something a little sinister about him so it was nice to learn more about him although I'm sure there is more to come out still. After several weeks wondering what the target would be it to discover what at least one of Nazir's targets was. I'm not sure it was necessary to restart to relationship between Jessica Brody and Mike although it is always possible that it will become relevant in upcoming episodes. As usual the acting was good throughout. Over all fans of the series should enjoy this episode.

While Brody is alone in his house in Washington Jessica alone goes into Mike's room undresses for him going back to her old ways of cheating. Virgil shows Saul the picture of the man Max got and turns out he knew him in the past. The CIA room keeps watch on Roya as things in the plan start moving. Brody's family then get to call him on the special phone. When Brody wants to talk to Dana she wants to part in it. Roya goes into a restaurant and a blue car pulls up where four men get out. When the CIA go in it turns out that Nazir was not in the car and Quinn is not to shoot Brody. OK episode with some great moments seeing how the CIA works and once again the family stuff does not work as well as the Brody storyline.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Claire Danes)
