well its pretty obvious they are going for female Brodie v2.0 scenario, where Carrie gets into a tortureporn situation because obviously as soon as Nazir2.0 gets his info he will torture/kill Carrie, and Saul has to ride into the rescue. Of course somehow brodie will be around instead and save her, ugh just typing this shit out makes me feel stupider
I liked seasons 1 & 2 because it was cool how it dealt with shit we don't like to talk about: we do shitty things to other countries and people, our soldiers don't go into war and come out like Captain America but instead some will get seriously fucked up, and there are good brown people and there are bad brown people. Now season 3 has turned into a retarded, "rich American bankers hate America and don't have a problem dealing with people who kill hundreds of people on US soil" clusterfuck of liberal circle-jerking.
season 2 should have had Nazir escape, release the tapes, and Brodie been captured. Season 3 is Carrie is vilified as a fucked up agent who slept with one terrorist and let another one escape, Brodie is put through public trials and we see both sides ("he's a traitor" vs "we did this to him"). In the meantime we see Nazir working with Iran to plan a really, really big unexpected cyber attack and the season finale is the entire western financial system gets fucked up, Iran invades Saudi Arabia and uses nukes to prevent any retaliations, Brodie is freed by Nasir and joins him after he realizes he has no place anymore in America.
Season 4 is all about trying to infiltrate the new caliphate that Iran is setting up in the Middle East as oil jumps 50x, the west is in collapse, China is in anarchy, Battlefield 4 basically.
