I thought the AVClud hit the nail bang on the head with this outstanding precis of the episode:
The core message of Homeland comes through loud and clear: Never trust a ginger.

So what's her motive?

She is the mole from Season 1!

Like I can remember the details of season 1. I can't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday.

I'm kind of hoping this is the last season of the show. I like it, it's fun TV, but I think they've kind of run out of ideas for Carrie. Also out of ideas in general; nothing puts the L in Lazy Scriptwriting quite like "sex worker girlfriend gets murdered" as a general intensifying plot device.

I'm a little fascinated by the Evil Ruskies angle though. So do we know who The Mole is this season? Or is it all a ruse? I mean, she was speaking Russian like 5 feet from her boyfriend CIA spymaster, maybe he noticed? Either way, the show is fearless in addressing current events head on. I wonder when they started filming this if they had any idea the Russians would end up running airstrikes in Syria too?

They already revealed the mole in season one. He was the Muslim analyst.

Really? Are you sure? I have absolutely no memory of that and a quick google indicates that the mole was never revealed, but I may be wrong.
