If you want to avoid spoilers for Homeland season 6, we suggest you stop reading now. If you don’t mind then please keep reading.
Saul wanted Javadi to investigate Nafisi (Bernard White) to find out if he had been dealing with North Korea. Later as Saul was preparing to head back to the U.S. he was detained by Israeli ambassador Etai Luskin (Allan Coduner). He wanted to know details on the secret meeting.
Carrie (Claire Danes) was able to secure the release of Sekou (J. Mallory McCree) in exchange for his silence. She transported him home with Reda (Patrick Sabongui) and there he was greeted with a surprise party of family and friends.
After questions from his friends Sekou decided to set the record straight by posting a new video online. In doing so he went against his agreement and revealed the identity of FBI informant Saad (Leo Manzari). He later reluctantly removed the video at Carrie’s request.
Meanwhile, President-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) took Carrie’s advice not to rush into action against Iran without seeing Dar Adal’s (F. Murray Abraham) report. A story was leaked to the press about the situation and she accused Dar.
She later met with Carrie and tried to get her to give her something that she could use against Dar as leverage. Carrie wasn’t keen on giving up classified information and betraying his trust.
Dar later confronted Carrie as she was picking up daughter Franny from school. He tried to warn her off advising Keane, calling her advice bad. He made a point of mentioning Franny in an almost threatening manner.
Elsewhere in the episode, Quinn (Rupert Friend) continued to surveil Carrie’s neighbour across the street. He was convinced that he was watching her apartment. When the man went out he managed to cross the street, gain access to the building and pick the lock to his apartment.
Once inside he had a quick look around and tried out the vantage point of Carrie’s. He spotted the man returning and just made it out in time. The man confronted him quite angrily in the reception.
Later Quinn noticed the man leaving with a bag and getting into a car in the middle of the night. He rushed out and took Carrie’s car so he could follow him. The man eventually got dropped off at what looked to be a delivery depot. Before Quinn could follow a police car moved him along. He managed to take a few photo’s before leaving.
At the end of the episode, Sekou returned to his job at the delivery depot. It looked to be the same place that Quinn followed the man to earlier. As Sekou drove through New York he heard a beeping in the back of his delivery van. When he turned to investigate the device making the noise exploded, devastating the van and presumably killing Sekou.
Back in the West Bank, Etai came to Saul’s holding cell and told him he was needed back home as there had been an attack.
