That is what I was thinking too..on if anyone, even the CIA, can trace Brody's text to Abu Nazir. Interesting that he used May 1..aka May Day..as the abort code.
I have nothing to prove my speculation but I suspect the text wasn't sent directly to Nazir but rather to a contact (dark haired lady?) who then passed on the message to Nazir so the connection wouldn't be a direct one. But then again, maybe I'm giving them too much credit considered the credulity they asked me to stretch in this ep with the assassination scene. It was very tense but him getting a text off. Really?
Another thing - how did Brody's video end up in Beirut? Where is the connection? It was just a couple of days ago (I guess) that he left the video at the bench, and now its gone all the way to Beirut. Shouldn't it be with Nazir? Why the informer's husband?
I think it was more than a couple of days. Didn't he leave the video at the bench at the end of last season? I think quite a bit of time has passed since last season since he's already a Congressman. But otherwise, I totally agree with this. I don't get why that guy would be in possession of the video.
I think I missed something re: why we think Saul might be killed? Can someone enlighten me?
There are the previews but I don't think that's about Saul.
My worry stems from the fact that Saul has proof that Carrie was right about Brody. As a well liked supporting character who knows too much, he perfectly fills the stereotype of the kind of character show runners like to kill off for shock value so the audience knows 'no one is safe.' Even though, of course we all know that they can't kill off Carrie.
So what does Brody want to do? I have no idea what the show thinks his long game is right now, or what he thinks his long game is right now.
I'm okay with this. I find it realistic he doesn't know what his long game is. His long game when he got back was to wait for Nazir to give him directions. When the bomb didn't detonate and his daughter stopped him, he abandoned what had been motivating him up to that point. Now he's part of another long game but it's not really his. Once again, it's being directed by other people like Nazir and the VP. He seems to be intrigued by both options but eventually he'll have to choose. [s]I will put where I think this season will go in a spec thread rather than here since it's not really applicable to the ep.[/s] Or maybe here since there isn't one. Anyway, tonight Brody chose to save Nazir. I suspect that he'll end up making a different choice later on in the season.
