Peachy Safehouse Guy #1 pores over the random shit Carrie grabbed at Abbas's house, coming up with nothing. Saul tells him to box it up for Langley, but he thinks it's probably mostly Fatima's junk and hasn't any high hopes. Then, the third person to touch the rucksack, Saul, right before boxing it up forever, feels something hard and weird sewn into the lining. Isn't that something. What could it be?
"My name is Nicholas Brody, and I'm a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I have a wife and two kids, who I love... By the time you've watched this, you'll have read a lot of things about me. About what I've done. That's why I wanted to explain myself. So that you'll know the truth."
Saul stares. The twist in his heart for Carrie untwists, sharply. This man was so good at hiding that he broke her, turned down into up and white into black, and she's not wrong. She never was. You could go crazy thinking about that. Or you could do the opposite.
Manic Mathison finds some new awful way to embarrass herself in front of Estes, presumably; Saul decides what to do with this most explosive piece of evidence so far; Nick maybe kills a dude while presumably untangling this latest thing somehow; Finn's creepy teen agenda is probably not yet revealed; Jessica hooks back up with Mike.
