    They didn't have an available drone that could get there quickly enough for them, so they scrambled a pair of AF fighter jets. It was a manned bombing run, not a drone strike.

    Good episode last night. Nice to see Quinn back in the fold. Hope Saul stick around in Pakistan too.

    Quinn is in love, Carrie, so don't say "I love you."

    I think the plot at this point is predictable, but it's playing out nicely.

    Hey, Carrie & Quinn there's at least one contact in Pakistan IS?? that was giving the chief the intel and set up him up for killing to silence him. Look for there to be some reason somebody else at the wedding had to be killed.

    Don' cha think that Carrie should have died her hair black again? Blondes are going to be noticed no matter if they wear a scarf.

    Yeah, Carrie so totally friendzoned Quinn. No amount of CIA black-ops training can prepare a guy for that. :D

    Me too. I turned to my wife moments after he appeared on the screen and said, "Hey, Beyrooz is back!". :)

    It's been a long time since I watched that season, but I'm pretty sure Beyrooz was played by Kal Penn.

    My recording just stopped right after Quinn hung up after talking to Carrie where he agreed to come to Pakistan. Was that the end of the episode?

    It's a standard recommendation that western women should wear a simple headscarf when traveling in the middle east. If they have to interact with anybody on the street, they'll often treat you better, and men will often harass women not wearing a scarf.

    Right, but with a head scarf and black hair she'd stick out a whole lot less than with a head scarf and blonde hair. And you'd think she'd be into sticking out less, what with being a CIA Station Chief and all...

    You're right, I totally forgot that.

    I always wonder why she doesn't go black too. Or why some people (on TV, not real life) make no effort to not stand out. I understand why, TV needs them to be visible as the actor, not as a hat and beard, but it always looks funny when a hunted character walks around with no hat, no disguise at all. Couldn't the (now dead) former CoS have worn something to disguise his easily recognized shiny head.

    I was also confused when she walked up to the car with the security guys sitting in it.

    Carrie: "I need you to take me to so-and-so hotel, yada yada".

    Driver: "But there's a lockdown; we can't leave."

    If there was a lockdown and they couldn't leave, why were they all sitting in the car?

    Speaking of that scene... is that barrel they're supposed to point their weapon into when loading/unloading it really a thing?

    I noted that women like Carrie know that they're safe going bareheaded in more western venues.

    That first scene was when they picked up Carrie at the airport, but later she said something like "we have a loophole," and the ambassador asked why she violated her lockdown order.

    Indeed it is, many cop shops use them. We've seen it used on TV in "Rookie Blue" in season one. The only time it's useful dramatically is to show a screw-up nubie making yet another mistake by firing a live round into it unintentionally and getting severely chastised. Unless it's to show (as here) that the protagonist is taking appropriate professional care with their tools.

    Can someone explain to me what that does, exactly? It just didn't make sense to me, but I don't use guns.
