So is Saul going to have to quit the CIA? You tell me. The hiring and firing rules are a lot bendier than I realized, before this show. Maybe if Saul fucked a terrorist and started coloring on the walls with every marker in his house, they'd cut him a break.
One of the tac team guys shows an interest in Carrie's well-being, which means he will soon be dead.
Guy: "What's going on with your face?"
Carrie: "This guy we're hunting did it."
Guy: "Wait, you were the hostage? Girl, you need to go home. Take a nap."
Carrie: "Help me find the Minotaur and I'll gladly do so."
They find a secret room, finally, and the guy instantly dies of having his throat cut open, and then Carrie just goes running through the tunnels screaming about the Minotaur, and you're pretty sure Abu Nazir -- out of pique, if nothing else -- is going to finally get at least one bullet in her ass. But no. She loops back around and finds them, just in time: The guns surrounding Abu Nazir, on his knees, as he reaches into his breast pocket (doesn't matter what's in there, or if there's anything in there) and finally goes down in a hail of bullets.
Estes: "Well, you're not a total fuckup. Good work."
Carrie: "A lot of random dudes had to die for me to pull this off."
Estes: "Yeah, but your psychic powers helped. Do you want to be at the press conference?"
Carrie: "Not really. I'd much rather just sit quietly near his body for like an hour."
Estes: "That ... makes a lot of sense, actually."
It's not just the future. Sometimes it's the past we travel to; find ourselves stuck in. She's not about glory, she's not about pride. Her service is much more humble than that. She never wanted to be the girl who saved the world: She's tasked with being the girl who didn't end it. Whose power holds her to that standard? This body is how she accomplishes that.
