Recap

After killing Akbari, Brody cleans the office as much as possible and gets out of the building before anyone finds the body. As he's at the gate of the compound, he used Akbari's gun that he took to force the driver through the gates in order to escape.

Carrie contacts Saul for extraction, but he wants proof that Brody followed through. Javadi confirms that Brody killed Akbari. Carrie and Brody meet up at a park and head to the safe house. Javadi wants Saul to give him Brody's location because he's been put in charge of the hunt for the assassin. He needs to get Brody in order to insure he replaces Akbari.

Saul considers it, but decides against turning on Brody. Carrie and Brody wait for the helicopter to come get them. Instead, they are ambushed by Javadi's forces. They take Brody and leave Carrie behind as Javadi originally promise. Carrie calls Saul and he's furious that his orders were disobeyed.

The President swore in Senator Lockhart early and on the President's orders gave up Brody. Saul's furious. Brody's set to be executed the next morning.
