I pick B. Making a deal with a terrorist...not something they want known. Also, he's a liability. He's volatile, uncontrollable, and brings out the worst in Carrie. I don't think the CIA care about that last bit though
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.
Wow! I really liked the last 20 minutes of tonight's episode. That plot point with the vp I would have thought a possibility in the season closer--not right now. The next two shows are going to be terrific.
I'm still so shell shocked I cannot figure out what to say about it.
But I would put it into a question of:
SpoilerWho is working for the CIA?
As I have said in my previous post on this thread:

He signed a 5 year contract, so if he's "out of the show", it's probably temporary.
Also, while Estes is working for the CIA he's also looking out for self interest. It's in his best interest Brody and the facts he knows disappear. So there's the question of who the traitor is and then there's the notion of someone who's not necessarily a traitor but is very self motivated.
Just caught up on Sunday's show and I am more confused than ever. I hope Saul is not the traitor cuz I like his character a lot.
I was starting to soften towards Brody but the killing scene with Brody and the VP snapped me out of it. It was intense.
I have a new theory on who the traitor is. Truly someone you'd least expect. Wonder if my theory will be answered tonight.
Around the Internet they say it's.
Since Abu Nazir is dead or supposedly dead, here is what happens in the Israeli version:
SpoilerJamal- who is the Abu Nazir in Hatufim/POW was a Mossad agent.
He dies from cancer and one of the IDF soldiers, who was considered dead, is in charge after Jamal's death.
That is why I keep on posting here that the question, that should be asked, is:
Who is working for the CIA and not who is the traitor.
SpoilerMy guess is Mike Faber and a couple of comments last night reinforced my guess. First, when Dana brought him up. Second, when Brody said to Jessica in the car, "We were f'ed the second I left for Iraq." Mike was Brody's commanding officer. Something no one has ever said is that it's pretty implausible for an officer to be best friends with an enlisted man, but maybe that's a plot point. As Brody and Walker's commanding officer he would have known when they were most vulnerable to be captured. He would also know their strengths -- Walker was a near perfect shot -- and he'd know their weaknesses. If she was in love with Jessica from afar, he'd know with Brody out of the way he stood a chance. At present, he works in military intelligence, so he has access to lots of classified, secret info. I could be totally wrong, but he is someone who seems totally not among those you'd consider, but yet very possible.
As for who is the mole at the CIA, I don't know. My guess is Virgil and/or his nephew. Virgil is former CIA. He still has access to do all these various jobs and he has Carrie's absolute trust.

I loved the scene in the car between Brody and Jess. So simple, but effective. I wondered how much of the truth he was going to share with her.
The way they filmed the search for Nazir in the tunnels was so effective - the cinematography, music, the use of light (or lack thereof) etc - I felt like I was there and I was truly holding my breath wondering if Nazir was going to jump out of the shadows. It was better filmed than most scary moves that are trying to scare you but fail.
Carrie's reaction to Nazir's death was handled very well. She needs to see him to believe it, what she has worked on for over a decade and the little smile as the van closed up.
I like how Peter believes in Carrie. Depending on what happens with Quinn's wife - hey Carrie - Quinn is cute and more stable!!
Loved how Roya totally called out Carrie.
Estes - is bringing down Saul - which makes him a bad guy. But Estes was pretty decent to Carrie and acknowledging her work.
I just don't see how Brody can remain on the show. He will be killed by Quinn I assume. If he is not - based on what goes down with Saul and Estes - others will learn about Brody. I hope they don't ruin the show keeping him alive and with Carrie.
I assume the only way Carrie's character has a future in the CIA is without Brody.
Let the story flow, and don't just keep amazing actors/characters around for the wrong reason.
Loved the preview for next week where Saul says to Carrie (paraphrasing) 'you are the smartest and dumbest person...'
I think it would be a good show with Saul/Quinn/F Murray Abraham / Virgil, Carrie and get rid of Estes??
I have no idea what direction they'll take the show next season.
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
