A Target And An Asset Are Lost – Homeland – Season 4 Episode 6 – “From A to B and Back Again”
Last week Homeland left us biting our fingernails for Saul. After watching Fara and Quinn come within a hair of finding Saul in the back of that trunk, we are now on pins and needles to know if Saul will be rescued or if a far worse fate awaits him. I do know that Carrie needs to get her head back in the game. I am over her and Aayan getting it on in the bedroom, whether she is trying to turn him or not. Hopefully we will see more of Carrie in the field and on the hunt to save Saul and put away terrorist.
Ugh…we start with Carrie and Aayan in bed, but at least there is nothing of a sexual nature going on. Carrie seems to be prepping him to leave for the UK. Aayan tells her he needs to get his stuff from the University and something tells me that won’t be an easy excursion.
Carrie goes to Quinn and tells him she needs a team of three to four people for a mission. When Quinn gives her some push back she spots John and decides he may be able to help her, but I don’t think that is a good idea.
As predicted, Aayan is stopped at school by his female friend, who asks him to take her to London with him, but he refuses. She becomes jealous when she realizes the journalist helping Aayan is female. When Aayan goes to leave he sees a man outside who seems to be waiting for him. The man pursues Aayan but he loses him.
Back at the station Professor Boyd shows up to speak with Quinn. Boyd seems to be trying to get information out of Quinn. Quinn gets word that Gazi was not on the plane when it got to Johannesburg.
Carrie shows up at the safe house where Aayan tells her what happened. Just when Carrie thinks nothing can get worse, Aayan also tells her about his female friend who now knows what is going on. Carrie is not sure she can get him out safely. Aayan suggests that his uncle can get him out of the country. It seems Aayan may be playing right into Carrie’s hands.
At that moment, someone breaks into the house and they try to grab Carrie and Aayan. Aayan makes it out and he sees the men throw Carrie into a truck and take off. It turns out the men are Carrie’s men. This was all set up by her.
Max and Fara meet John and Carrie at the Embassy. Fara and Carrie have a nasty exchange of words. It seems that relationship needs some work. Carrie sends Fara to clean up the safe house.
Carrie tracks Aayan to a bus depot. It seems Carrie was right Aayan is leading them to his uncle. I have a feeling that Carrie is not going to be able to take out Aayan’s uncle because they are probably holding Saul in the same location.
Aayan’s bus is stopped by militia who begin checking everyone’s papers and Carrie holds her breath as Aayan has to get out of a tricky spot. Quinn is notified that no one has been able to get in touch with Saul.
Aayan reaches his destination and contacts his uncle. Carrie and her team are listening in on the call and she is pleased when he sets up a meeting. Carrie then gets a call from Aayan and he tells her that he loves her. She returns the sentiment and then Aayan hangs up. I don’t have to tell you how awkward that must have been for the rest of the Ops team.
Boyd meets with Tasneem and gives her the information he has found on Carrie. He also gives her the location of the safe house Carrie uses. He acquired some information from the house when Fara was sweeping it and also hands that over. This now tells ISI that Aayan is involved.
Aayan has been traveling by foot to get to his uncle when he is met by some of his uncle’s men. They bring Aayan to some vehicles where they wait. Carrie advises the team that if Haqqani shows they will take him out. Quinn finds out that Saul never got on his flight to the states.
Just as Carrie identifies Haqqani, Quinn tells her that Saul never got on his plane. They then see Saul on the screen. Haqqani has him and is showing him to Aayan. Haqqani tells Aayan that his friend is a help to Saul and that he has put him in a very bad place. He then puts a bullet in Aayan’s head.
Carrie orders the team to take the shot and Quinn stops them. He asks Carrie if she is out of her mind. There is no way they are taking the show when Haqqani has Saul. Carrie leaves the room. To say she is in a bad place would be putting it mildly.
This has left us all stunned and shocked. The question now is how will they get Saul back? What do you think Carrie and the team should do? What do you think their next move should be?
