I think Saul figured it out, from the note.
yeah, the look on his face said it all - i'm wondering if he'll die of a heart attack before carrie has a chance to kill him? or, will russia have him eliminated if carrie can't do it?
seeing andy from true blood (chris bauer) as carrie's attorney was an added surprise, joining sam from true blood as the president.
So Carrie is set free to walk around as she pleases after being charged with conspiracy to kill the president. Even with Saul's help - c'mon.
Still loving this season though.
...and Carrie pushing him earlier about his Russian asset, which he denied having. Saul was fine with Carrie doing whatever the cost to get to her goal, and protected her after the fact, so he can’t be too surprised (though he doesn’t think she’ll kill him)
Too lazy to google but trying to figure out who is the "actor" was who played the young Saul. No way that was de-aging. And you never actually see him speak.
Looked like Fred Savage to my wife and I. If so, interesting in that he played a young Mandy Patinkin in a Criminal Minds flashback a few years back.
It was definitely Patinkin's voice...I guess the actor isn't a good lip-syncer?
Oooh now I gotta find that episode.
Pretty good eye. According to IMDB, it was Fred's brother Ben Savage.
And after further research, it was indeed the same actor who played a young Mandy Patinkin in both shows. Ben Savage.
Young Saul’s voice being dubbed was kind of odd...
But great episode - how do they wrap all this up in just one more hour?
Very cool. So we were "mostly right". Thanks for digging into it!
Jalal Haqqani is gone....just like that? 19 years vs the Taliban is over with one missile strike.
Zabel's "I was right, you were wrong" happy dance was so silly. He's too dumb to realize that Saul's "back-channel" communication is what got them the Taliban's location.
And the lip-quiver was dialed up to 11.
Other than that, great episode.
Nice callback to a previous season when the Russian spies were using vacant high-end real estate as communications safe-houses. I can't remember if it's the same realtor, though - probably not; I think the previous one was in a different part of the country.
The Russians have been the big bad for at least 4 seasons now, even if behind-the-scenes. Occam's Razor should tell Carrie that she got her Afghan asset killed by Gromov. He manipulated her into the situation she's in now. There's a decent chance he knew about the black box from the time he made that phone call (which Carrie disabled the surveillance for). The "failed" deal for Max's life was all an act for her benefit. If Carrie had gotten on that chopper, he was probably headed to the town where the black box was without her. She's willing to put the fate of the world in his hands?
So many unbelievable things to count...
-- like Andrei (the Russian defector) just spilling the beans to some unknown woman knocking at his door? He should have called Saul.
-- Jen Bragg telling Saul about everything Carrie told here EXCEPT the price on the flight recorder?
-- Does the National Security Advisor just live in a regular house without any police or security?
He's not dead.. it was a decoy target just to de-escalate the tensions between the countries (at least temporarily). Saul was like "just get me a target, any plausable target will do" and BAM, they found a target to bomb.
How many separations of "The Princess Bride" we're talikin' here
i looked up the red books, they are "Tauchnitz" editions (as Andrei mentioned):
Tauchnitz publishers - Wikipedia
He figured she's after the English Teacher, not that she's after him...
It was fortunate for Carrie that Saul dated the "Tauchnitz" editions
Not unusual, though, for book collectors...
