I'm usually not one to let "unrealistic" things bother me in a show like this, because it's just a fictional story and liberties often need to be taken...but the Brody going to get that guy to the safe house was a really horrible minor subplot. It was wildly unrealistic, and for the first time ever I was sitting there thinking "this is just so stupid". Why would such an intricate operation send the most easily identifiable person, coincidentally the person with the most to lose by getting caught, to do such a mundane task like this. If they have safe houses, they surely have a goon who can go get this dude. It just seemed like an unnecessary and forced subplot that served little purpose. Also, him cleaning the blood off himself in a WIDE OPEN car wash was just hilarious...in a bad way. Unless it's for plot purposes and they did it so that someone comes forward saying they saw Brody do this (even so, Brody would be an idiot for doing that). If the whole point of it was to fill an episode with some action/suspense and ultimately be the breaking point in Brody's relationship, well, they could have done something better.
It's still a minor quip, but it did annoy me...probably irrationally so. I just was bothered by it when it was happening. Took something away from the episode for me.
This has to be the early favorite for Claire Danes' Oscars submission. She was fantastic and super compelling.
I'm very intrigued to see where this goes. I see a few ways that this could end up never making it back to anyone who will actually expose Brody, but they seem tricky. It's probably very easy to keep Carrie from exposing him because everyone thinks she's crazy and she's thought this before. If someone gets the tape and destroys it, her word means nothing. That could lead to some good story lines...maybe going rogue. Saul will be the tricky one. I never even considered that he'd be bad...maybe Estes gets in the way. But Saul knows, and if someone is trying to cover it up that isn't him, he's literally gotta go.
