Peter Quinn is depressive, fleeing in alcohol and the chubby arms of his doting landlady, resisting therapy and Dar Adal, but his endless reviewing the footage of Sandy's lynching yields a distressing new theory. The ambassador to Pakistan ordered a lock-down, which Carrie shamelessly circumvents, dragging unamused security staff along.

Aayan still shivers after abusive Taliban intimidation, so he refuses sell his drone-decimated family's story to CIA novice Fara Sherazi, who poses as a London-based reporter. Ayaan finds his medicine stash trashed by his girl friend's father, who even falsely reported him as a thief to see him expelled as med student.
