(I don't think it's a coincidence that Brody's experience in this episode basically mirrors that of his time with Abu Nazir in miniature. Kidnapped, interrogated, broken down with physical and mental pain, and then built back up to serve some 'good' purpose.)
Yeah, I noticed that, too. You had the bad cop with the physical torture, which presumably he has a lot of practice dealing with. Then, the good cop comes in and offers love.
Shortly after he was stabbed, Brody gave Carrie a look as his hand was getting bandaged. It made me think of her comment to him last year (regarding Afzal Hamid), "We don't do that [torture] here."
I found it interesting that Brody was willing to admit to Quinn that he came back to the US intending to kill the VP (isn't that admission a death sentence, or at least life in prison?), but wouldn't admit to wearing the suicide vest. When he answered the question about the tailor, he admitted he had one, but he kept repeating the line that he wasn't wearing one.
I wonder if Estes already had is dinner with Roya, and how he's going to react when he finds out Brody named her as someone in Nazir's network. I also think that Brody isn't going to be too pleased to find out that Dana went on a date with Finn (and that's without the hit-and-run).
I've noticed some parallels in episode structure between last season and this one. In both seasons, Brody and Carrie bump into each other in episode 4. Episode 5 features an interrogation. DOes this mean Brody and Carrie will hook up again next episode?
