    I’m not sure what to think! I was fairly convinced Brody was on the level previously (I didn’t think he was in cahoots with Nazir). But something about the scenes with Carrie was disturbing. At first I thought it was just bad writing. The dialog sounded … off. Then I realized it was just his lines that sounded off, that sounded constructed, artificial. Carrie’s lines were fine (I, too, liked her honesty).

    So, as you say, bad acting or an intentional awkwardness telling us Brody still isn’t on the level? (Or another red herring … some of those have been such obvious misdirection I found them annoying … the business with Quinn seeming to shoot Brody while he was praying, for example … then Carrie comes back; can’t find Quinn at first … irritating when it’s so blatant.)

    So,…who moved the car??

      I thought maybe it was just me who felt like Brody’s lines weren’t ringing true at the end. And I guess who moved the car is the mystery for next season . . .

        Indeed. The interesting thing is, who’s left? Was it someone who sacrificed themselves at the event? I’m pretty sure we can eliminate Carrie, Brody & Quinn. Saul was at sea. (I’ve occasionally wondered if Saul would turn out to be a mole; it’s the sort of dirty trick writers sometimes play; Saul is—as you once said—so much the obvious moral center. I always wonder about obvious.)

        It should be someone we know. I’m not a fan of narratives that pull rabbits out of hats.
