Hayes has ideas. Carrie goes shopping. Tasneem has problems.

(no one else had posted this so I did, hope that's OK.)

I really enjoyed the whole game of Carrie keeping some info from Yevgeny, exploiting him as much as she can. She even sneaks out to do her own intel, echoes of her kitchen/moped runs from the CIA station. I was a little repulsed watching her make nookie with Yevgeny but that's in keeping with past seasons, her unafraid to use sexuality to achieve her goals. And then wham, Yevgeny turns on her and captures her. I'd been holding out hope all along he really was trying to help her, as improbable as that was. Guess not.

A little confused with the Saul-in-Washington story. Really unclear what's going on with David Wellington, is he really so useless and disconnected?

The Pakistani ISI woman has mega Princess Leia vibes in this episode. Help me Jal Haqani you’re my only hope.

Loved the final playoff with the Russian, and how Carrie plays it when she’s in such a disadvantage. However the safe house bit confused me - was it a decoy for the Russian while she got the recorder? No question in my mind where her loyalties are tho.
