I saw him taking Dana to the police on 2 levels: One, that Vietnam guy really got to him. I think he wanted to prove to himself that he was the kind of man that the vet saw him to be. Two, with all of the lies and dishonesty he's living in, he knows the pain and guilt that come, and didn't want Dana to be wracked with living in the same cesspool (although on a much, MUCH different level) than he's dealing with. I thought, quite frankly, it was the most humane thing Brody's done so far in the show.
Amen to that. It was also a way for Brody to assert his independence AND do the right thing. Everyone is pulling him this way and that way and Estes and the VP thought they had him "handled" and he was going to be a father
, which is actually the one thing he seems to have done well since coming back.
I really wish Dana had just walked into the police station by herself, but I guess that's asking a lot of a 16 year old. But damn, way to spill it out to Cynthia! That was classic Dana. Girl can unload!
As for the "romance", well, Quinn did tell her to build his confidence. He didn't say HOW to do that. Carrie is highly intuitive and that method worked. I'm not sure why some of you are up in arms about it. It's a train wreak, but I think the show has earned this wreck. Carrie isn't entirely rational or cold hearted. She couldn't do her job otherwise. Neither can Saul. Saul's irritated at being played, true and I think Quinn gave him the perfect medicine. Quinn is the Spock of this group right now and they need him, but stuff can't get done without Carrie and Saul taking risks and making leaps.
Also, I love the idea of Ray being the mole, but I don't think he's high level enough for some of the stuff the mole has allegedly spilled. I think it could be Estes. Not sure why, but I think Brody stealing stuff from his safe was a test to see Brody's loyalty and his nerve. Just a theory, but there aren't that many potential cast members.
