    Something about Israeli agents are on their way to pick them up.

    I think it was that if Saul warned her, then he also warned the Israelis.

    "Saul managed to warn her somehow."

    "So Israeli Counterintelligence must know too."

    If Saul warned her somehow, then why did she give the info (thumb drive) over to Carrie?

    Saul had warned Anna, the Russian agent, not his sister.

    saul warned anna (the asset), not his sister - yevgeny received word on his phone she'd killed herself before capture.

    Thanks for the insight - so where might they have rushed off to with such urgency?

    Another Question - who was the guy Saul visited at the end after he got the call on his landline with the 'professor' code?

    Syria. They had to get out of Israel before the local authorities caught them.
    He was the bookstore guy through which Saul got his Russian intel (through the coded books).

    One of the more satisfying series finales around.

    No hero recognition for Carrie, but a satisfying life serving her country with the long, long con. And, a story that mirrors where it all started. Brody was turned during the long time frame he was a POW. She is now ostensibly turned, as others have mentioned Snowden-like, during multiple long stretches under the control of US enemies. I also liked/believed Yvgeny and Carrie as a couple.

    Me too, but they sure looked goofy with the grins and head bobs during the concert. Quite an instance of product placement there, I thought.

    I bet all the "Game of Thrones" fans are upset. It is possible to have a series finale that satisfies. I am rewatching Battlestar Galactica. IIRC, that finale was somewhat satisfying.

    OK, but Saul got the first book delivered to his hotel room. So that (and all the other red books in his case) came from the guy (via the Russian) as well?

    All we know is that he has currently been using the book store as the drop point for the books...we don't know why or for how long. (And also that the book guy doesn't seem to know who he is, which is a little odd...)

    That did seem a little out of place. Like there was a specific point to promote Kamasi Washington and his musicians. Although if I remember correctly, Carrie is supposedly a jazz fan because her father was a musician, right? If so, I guess that is why the concert meant a lot to her.

    It didn't seem out of place to me because Carrie liking jazz music was part of the character. Maybe Season 1 made more of a reference ? I also thought the opening credits music was jazz, though I am not very knowledgeable about the genre.

    Odder still that he had the number for Saul's landline.

    Not really...he had to have a way to let "the professor" know that his "special orders" had arrived.

    Claude (bookstore owner) knew who Saul was. When he called him "Professor" a second time, Saul said "You can stop with the cloak and dagger, Claude. It's all over now."
