"Did he talk?" Hassan asks his security chief, who we learn this week is named Tarin. The answer is no. Hassan asks how "forceful" the interrogation was, and Tarin says, "Very." Even if it couldn't have been that long, since Tarin hasn't even been outside the U.N. building for 45 minutes. "I did it myself. I don't believe he's involved with your brother in any way." Hassan is not satisfied, and he wants the delegate's wife and two children back home arrested. "Apply whatever pressure is necessary to make Jamot talk." Tarin just scowls at him handsomely, until Hassan tells him to speak his mind. Which Tarin does: "You rallied us around you on the promise you would put an end to such tactics. Mr. President, I will do everything humanly possible to find your brother, but please, do not ask me to violate the principles that you and I both stand for." These words seem to hit home, and Hassan thanks Tarin for being the one to tell him the truth now that his wife is gone. He backs off his previous order, and tells Tarin to just check computer and phone records again. Tarin and the other man head for the door to comply, but Hassan asks the shady-looking one to stay and pack up the files. No sooner is Tarin gone than Hassan repeats the order he just gave Tarin. And this guy, although a little slow on the uptake, is perfectly cool with it. Clearly Tarin should have come to this meeting alone. Hassan adds instructions to find Tarin's records while he's at it. "He might have his own reasons for not wanting Jamot to talk." This sounds too shady even for Shady, but I'm sure he'll come around. Interesting how Hassan's behavior right now is not entirely unlike that of Kiefer's in past seasons. But in this case we can tell it's wrong, because the person who disagrees with Hassan is brave and handsome, while the guy who's going along with him is bug-eyed and unshaven. Times change, don't they?
