    Thinking about it they may also have assumed that once the forensic team went in there were no longer people remotely surveilling the shop.

    Hit the shop before surveillance is pulled and you risk missing someone and getting followed; which might compromise more than the existence of a heavily armed strike team.


    Could that team have been part of the revenge strike Nazir was planning against the US?

    I'd been assuming the plan was to hit something overseas; but maybe he was aiming for a domestic target for a bigger splash. If the tailor had something either critical to the team's strike, or immediately compromising for them, I could see going for a high risk attack; especially if the security timeframe you're worried about is only a handful of days. If you just need to buy enough to delay to hit your original target then the risk the government can follow up quickly enough to derail your plan seems fairly low. (Although immediate heightened general security in response to the Gettysburg shooting might be problematic even before they piece together any usable intel on the shooters)


    Still, a straight up smash and grab against a government team doesn't seem like a smart or winning play. Hopefully the show goes somewhere good and believable with it.

    Gonna bet that its full of C4. If it is, I wonder if that amount of C4 was worth it or if it would have been easier just to get it elsewhere?

    It's an EMP weapon. They should have sealed the perimeter.

    Hard to believe you'd go to investigate a bomb maker without a dog. Hmmm, let me just open these drawers and tap on these walls.

    Bingo! Not to worry, Chloe is realigning the satellites as we speak, behind the scenes at CTU.

    I miss 24!

    Gonna be something worse than C4. Dirty bomb, deadly virus, ricin. Other guesses?

    If you watch the preview (spoiler alert) at http://www.sho.com/sho/homeland/home Carrie says,

    They've got enough C4 to level an embassy, a synagogue...

    Don't forget that she first has to open a socket.

    Also don't forget to task the satellite to follow the van with the box in it all over the place. Until it goes into a parking garage or something.

    I think the whole "Brody get the tailor and take him to the safe house" was more of a test for Brody than an actual mission.
