Advertisements I think this is the most likely case; however, taking out Jalal solves a big problem for Tasneem, too. She legitimately may not know where he is - they did blindfold her before transporting her to the last meeting. As others have said, they have a LOT of threads to close in a one hour series finale. It's just that back-channel talks and a surgical strike on Jalal were exactly what Saul recommended in the Oval Office, and that's exactly what they got (even if the strike was on a fake target). But Zable is all smug "I was right, you were wrong." He thinks moving more troops to the border and the threat of an invasion are what convinced Islamabad to cough up Jalal. So now that we took out Jalal (at least Hayes and Zabel think so) why haven't the tensions been defused? We can handle a little censure from the UN. It's too bad Kuznetsov's English was so good that he said "I should call him" instead of "I better call Saul." The title of the finale is "Prisoners of War" which is the name of the Israeli TV series that Homeland is based on. Nice touch.
