Nick runs off and you think maybe Roya is going to flip a 180 and go ninja on him in this park. Wouldn't that be amazing? If she was like, "Uh, remember how I'm a trained terrorist? Taste the terror." But instead she just chases after him, begging him to pull it together. But he will not pull it together. He will not, in this instance, be pulling his shit together.
Quinn!: "Uh, so he just wandered off? Maybe somebody should do something. Hell, I'd be cool with Carrie's Makeout Plan right now."
Carrie: "...I'm on it."
Everybody talks a million times about how the op is blown. Everybody, that is, except for Carrie. Carrie knows she's just a makeout away from bringing this one in. As is her wont, she instructs Virgil to disable the tracking on Nick's phone and lie to Quinn about it, so that she can physically chase him through the quaint streets and make out with him until he is a double agent again. Because right now, he's a zero-agent. That's two less than he started out this morning.
Carrie: "Brody, here's the situation. There are guys following me, following you. So I'm going to need you to get in this minivan and let me drive you somewhere and nobody will know where we are. Then we will do it, and it will be a total creepshow."
Brody: "How does that help the fact that I just fucked things up with both Roya and Quinn by shitting my pants and running around like a tool?"
Carrie: "You're just going to have to trust me."
Brody: "Well, okay. For lack of anything else to do, and the CIA coming to put me in Gitmo so I go crazy like Aileen, I will follow your one plan you always, always have."
Estes: "So you know how in every episode Carrie does something off the chain and I make this face at you? Well, I'm going to make twice that face this time. She put a broken asset with our best lead, that blew up, he ran off, and now they've both disappeared. And you and I both know what happens next. They have creepy sex."
Saul: "I dunno, I just trust that girl. I'm sure this is going to work out fine."
Estes, verbatim: "I don't want to be the one standing in front of the Senate explaining who Carrie was fucking when the bomb went off! You burned your cover in Beirut to float this operation, which -- as of 20 minutes ago -- is officially shit. I'm the only friend you've got left in the building. So if you have any idea where Carrie is, you damn well better say. I'm not playing games here."
