Another truck arrives, with Abbas and Nazir's lieutenant, Al-Razi. Separately, Carrie and Nick begin to shake, because they know her intel is good: Abu Nazir is on his way. But just before they can take their shots, just as Nazir is stepping out into the street, he gets a text from Nick: "MAY 1." Estes, and Carrie, celebrate just before the order is given... But he ducks away, saved again.
[Note: Aside from ruining the mission and taking out Nazir, Nick is also responsible for making some poor janitor have to clean up the shit Nick took while sending that text. Annoying. -- Rachel.]
The safehouse team grabs Carrie and Saul, already reacting to the situation, and shoves them into the car. All the Americans on Hamra St. got away, although Abbas and Al-Razi are dead.
Carrie: "What about Abu Nazir? We've got to loop back and find him, I'll shoot his ass myself! Easy as cake."
Saul: "No, this is Hezbollah turf and we've got like four people on the ground at this point. What matters is that your source came through. You were right. That is a 100 percent victory on your mission, and now we extract you and Fatima immediately."
Carrie's not going out like that, like some kind of chump. No sir. She gets Fatima's keys as they're loading her in, and runs up to toss Abbas's apartment now that he's dead. Grabbing a small rucksack -- at random -- she snatches random papers and documents and shoves them in there, to salvage something from this half-disaster. Downstairs, the Hezbollah thugs start rocking the escape van back and forth, giving Saul and Fatima both some serious wiggins. Once they smash the windshield, Saul can't wait any longer, and they take off.
Upstairs, stranded in Hezbollah territory, Carrie immediately gets shot at by a bunch of dudes. She runs up to the roof, thugs in pursuit shooting at her, and after a lot of running around Abbas's apartment complex, takes out a dude with a brick. Coming out in the Melrose Place area of the complex, a guy with a gun grabs her -- it's the other safehouse guy, who has been by the way a peach this entire episode. They come around a corner just as the van is driving up -- very exciting -- and everybody jumps in. Awesome! Awesome. Carrie succumbs to the freakouts, a little bit, but to be fair I wasn't there getting shot at, and still almost started crying my own self, so have at it.
