The episode begins at the Beirut airport where Saul is going through the security check. One of the officers asks him to step out and takes him to a room. He tries telling them that he is a Diplomat; but they pay no heed to him and they open his suitcase and rip off the lining and take out a memory card. The Hezbollah rep takes it and tells Saul never to come back to Lebanon. We then see that Saul is in the plane and he still has the memory card with him as he had hidden it elsewhere. Next, Carrie is writing a report and her father tells her that she ought to go to bed and she can’t strain herself. She says that she is feeling great and he says that she has one more hour to finish her work. ..Read the full recap

Jessica: I know how much you hate talking about this stuff in public, I was just curious what you were planning to say tonight.
Brody: What do you think?
Jessica: (Reading Brody's speech) By my third year in captivity, I knew that this was where I was going to die. That I had to accept that, make peace with it. So that's what I did. I prepared to die. But I didn't die, somehow I got to come home to a wife and two kids I'd talked myself into believing would be just fine - no - better off, without me. I mean, how could they really know me any more.
Brody: Too much?
Carrie: You're not in Beirut?
Saul: Came straight here from the airport. I hear you were turned away from the debrief at Langley today.
Carrie: I was the one who recovered that intel. He wouldn't even let me present it!
Saul: Well, I can only imagine how shitty that must have felt. Still feels.
Carrie: Before the Beirut trip, I really thought I'd finally found a way to cope with being out of the company.
Jessica: Was there really a union meeting in your district today?
Jessica: Where? What town? Don't answer that. I don't want to hear another lie.
Brody: I'm not lying.
Jessica: They just roll off your tongue, don't they? One after the other. I really thought we turned a corner this morning. You're hiding something. I can see it in your eyes. Now either you tell me what's going on --
Brody: There's nothing going on --
Jessica: Or I suggest you start looking for a hotel room! And while you're at it, you give this marriage some serious thought, because I don't think I can do this any more.
Brody: (Pre-recorded video) This is Nicholas Brody and I'm a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. People will say I was broken, I was brainwashed. People will say I was turned into a terrorist.
Carrie: Oh my God.
Brody: Taught to hate my country. My actions this day is against such domestic enemies. The vice-president and members of his national security team, who I know to be liars and war criminals --
Carrie: I was right.
Brody: -- who are responsible for atrocities they must be held accountable for.
Saul: You were right.
Brody: This is about justice for eighty-two children whose deaths were never acknowledged and whose murder is a stain on the soul of this nation.
Carrie: I was right.
