Carrie arrogantly accuses the ICI of sabotage all investigations but finds perfect gentleman general Aasar Khan cooperative enough to completely convince even Quinn. Hoping to avenge Ayaan she tries to track the medicine he was to bring to Taliban uncle Haissam Haqqani trough the knave's nurse-girlfriend, but the pills wreck her memory and self-control. ICI can easily have her arrested for armed street frenzy an brings her to the general's home, where the illusion to find Brody alive, to good to be true or ignored, mentally breaks her. Meanwhile Saul makes a failed escape attempt. Written by KGF Vissers

After Bin Laden's death in 2011, already scarce cell phone use by the Taliban plummeted for fear of being tracked and monitored, especially in remote areas with few users. Someone so close to a major Taliban leader as Saul's prison guard would not be carrying a live smart phone. See more »

Excellent episode in the best season..
19 November 2014 | by agurerSee all my reviews

I believe Season 4 is one of the best seasons of Homeland. Especially last two episodes were excellent, but this episode is definitely the best ever.I particularly like the increasing taste of espionage lately. It is also really impressive to see that Claire Danes' performance can still get EVEN better! I believe her acting skills are totally off limits. I really can not find anything less then perfect in terms of acting, script, execution, etc. Another nice thing this season is that the show takes very fair and elaborate perspectives on world issues like terrorism, counter terrorism, etc both from a theoretical and a practical point of view.
