Carrie sits down with the now-bandaged Brody. Carrie starts by mentioning how much he hurt her professionally, physically, and mentally. Brody responds by saying he never wore a bomb, but does apologize for hurting her. Carrie gets some water.

Carrie then disconnects the video feeds, but leave the audio feeds running. She then removes Brody’s handcuffs. She talks about support groups, what Nazir had done to civilians. Brody admits he lied about how awful the war really was. Carrie then suggests that he should stop lying, saying that she wants him to leave his family for her. Carrie says she thinks he is good b/c he didn’t go through with his plan to actually detonate the bomb he was wearing and mentions Dana’s call that stopped him. She talks about about the person whom she fell in love with, then asks about Nazir’s plan. Brody admits to knowing about a plan, but claims he doesn’t know what it is and give her Hammad’s name.

Cut to Dana saying she wants to have fun with Finn. Finn loses his secret service detail by speeding through a red light. He flies through an alley and, as he is exiting it, strikes a female pedestrian. Dana says they have to check on her, but Finn will not b/c of who his father is. They see that someone is helping her ion the rear view mirror, so they feel that is good enough of an excuse to flee.

Carrie informs Brody that the affair with her can be played off as a cover for their contact with Hammad. However, Brody feels that Nazir will go after his family after he figures out he’s working with CIA. To silence him, Carrie tells Brody that they will protect his family.
