Meanwhile, Dar Adal met with Senator Lockhart, who is expected to take over the CIA in 12 days. Lockhart wants changes, and those changes mean getting rid of people like Carrie Mathison. Dar Adal is totally on board, too, because Dar Adal will play any side of the fence that will result in his advancement. The two kiss each other’s asses until you can see bedsores. But Adal doesn’t let on to Saul that he and Lockart are like two bullets in a chamber, and why should he? Saul doesn’t trust Dar Adal, and Dar Adal doesn’t trust Saul. Basically, this is Dar Adal and Saul at the CIA corporate retreat.
Before we get to the good part, let’s just get the Dana part out of the way: Dana changed her last name to Lazaro. It’ll take 3-6 weeks to become official, and cost $41. The clerk even threw in a prayer for free. Dana then decided to move in with her friend, Angela, telling her mother: “I can’t live this life anymore. It nearly killed me. I gotta leave.” Mom gave her a credit card with $300 on it and wishes her well. The end.
PLEASE LET THAT BE THE LAST WE EVER SEE OF HER.
Wait! Quick? Where’s Brody?
And now we can talk about the good part of the episode.
Javati didn’t go to the planned meet, after all. He had something else in mind, namely tracking down his son’s wife, putting a bullet in her head, and then taking a broken bottle to his ex-wife’s neck. Swell guy, that Javati.
Now we understand whose house Javati was surveilling last week.
What we DON’T understand, however, is how a guy who got so bent out of shape because he got mustard on his shirt last week is so indifferent to the fact that his shirt is DRENCHED in blood this week.
Here’s what I loved about this scene with Saul: He didn’t punch Javati. He used the f**king palm strike.
Burt Reynolds approves.
