That they allowed enter Brody in that room with his cellphone was a flaw in the screenplay? That's possibly true. But it's also true that this is episode is fucking good. I mean, really? All that stuff happened in the second episode of the season?
I will not judge the entire episode because of that flaw.
When I read in the beginning that Michael Cuesta was the director of the episode I already knew that this episode I will be amazing, and it was.
I don't know what was my favorite part.
When they were about to shoot Abu Nazir I was hysterical and shaking. When Carrie was chased by the musulmans the same. At the end... I was, I really don't know how I was, but I remember my mom told me that I should stop yell
Saul, eh. He's still a bit of an enigma... should be interesting to see what he actually does with that information.
Agreed, text message plot point was idiotic and ruined the episode. Happened to be near the situation room in the three minute window for the operation, no one in a packed room noticed someone texting rather than watching screen, no way he would be in the room, or be allowed to keep his phone, or have reception. and apparently he has abu nazir as a contact, on his office phone, that his aides probably handle every day. Maybe he cleverly filed it away under aunt abu. Insulting writing. Why not just have something unrelated disrupt the op? Carrie would have been vindicated and the writers wouldn't look like morons. Or do they think we are morons?
Awesome episode, awesome beginning of the season. However, one thing: there is no way—I don't care who you are—that anyone is allowed in the situation room with a cell phone. In a high leverage situation like that, everyone is worried about the story being leaked to the media, not to mention the target himself. Also, I wonder how the service is in the Pentagon? How quickly can a message be sent from DC to Middle East? Did Brody even have Abu's number, or did it go through the journalist girl?
Regardless, this is Hollywood, and this is great drama. Given the events and excitement of the episode, I can overlook how absurdly unrealistic that one scene was.
