  1. Carrie is the fictional Makayla Maroney, Not Impressed with your authority or higher clearance levels. Then again, she isn’t even an agent anymore, right? Peter’s or Saul’s or Estes’ orders don’t carry any weight. One thing you didn’t mention that I noticed was that Peter basically told Carrie to go fuck Brody to get him back in line, didn’t he? It was implied, at least. Also, wouldn’t the helicopter likely have seen the parked, unmarked surveillance van, and Carrier moving towards the clearing?

    Well, they could drop her from the operation. Or put her in jail.

    “One thing you didn’t mention that I noticed was that Peter basically told Carrie to go fuck Brody to get him back in line, didn’t he?”

    I don’t think so — when they were listening to Carrie and Brody having sex he was freaking out and trying to get Saul to acknowledge that she was out of control, indeed that she specifically was NOT just working an asset.
