In the wake of the explosion, Saul finds Carrie hospitalized and manic, but realizes her chaotic theories have merit; before his congressional campaign begins, Brody takes his family on a weekend trip to Gettysburg, where he retrieves an important item.
The scene opens with a man sewing something. He rolls out a strap and pours a type of glue on some fabric. He places beads in it. The man is creating a bomb vest. He situates the wires and realizes that it is ready to go. Meanwhile, David talks to the press secretary and says that he has to talk to the president. Saul comes in and says that there are several agencies who knew of the bombing and that the leak is even harder to find. Galvez tells David that the Vice President Walden wants to talk to him. He tells David that Walden is on lock-down until the threat is subsided. David asks where Carrie is and Saul tells him that she is going to be released in a few hours. However, when Saul gets there, he sees Carrie walking around manic about getting a green pen. She tells Saul that she is focused on the green and says that Abu Nazir doesn’t have a single sniper and says that he goes big. Carrie says that Walker is a pawn and says that there is a bigger threat out there. Saul gives Carrie a green pen and is worried about Carrie’s state of mind...Read the full recap

Brody: I have this feeling things are going to get pretty wild soon. Your mom's going to need you. When I'm not around. Promise me you'll watch out for her.

Xander: What... what tickets?
Jessica: Dana, you're going!

Dr. Jeremy: As far as her injuries go, Carrie is fine.
Saul: Well, I already heard that. I mean...how she is acting...
Dr. Jeremy: I'm sorry, I have to speak with Carrie privately.
Saul: I'd like to come, she'll allow it.
Carrie: Oh, there you are.
Dr. Jeremy: Hey, how are you feeling Carrie?
Carrie: Is it time yet? Are we going?
Carrie: To work! We gotta hop-to. We gotta haul ass to Langley. They have to understand, Saul. Nazir's movement's in green, after yellow, always creeping towards purple are methodical, meaningful, momentous and monstrous.
Dr. Jeremy: Okay, I'm going to get you a bit more Ativan to settle you down...
Carrie: I don't need to settle down! Tell him, Saul! Tell him!
Saul: Carrie...you're not yourself.
Carrie: Somewhere down there, there's a tiny sliver of green just taking its time. This is how everything works. You wait. You lay low. And then you come to life.
