carrie_3Carrie Mathison

As a field operative in Iraq, Carrie was given information regarding an imminent attack on U.S. soil involving an American P.O.W. who has been ‘turned’ by al-Qaeda figure Abu Nazir.

Coincidentally 10 months later Nicholas Brody, a U.S. Marine platoon sergeant, has been rescued after eight years in terrorist captivity.

Carrie commissions an unauthorized surveillance package on Brody’s home.

Carrie braces Brody at a veteran’s support group.  The two develop a genuine rapport and bond over their mutual experiences in the Middle East.  They elope in Carrie’s automobile.

“Parking lot sex.  Classy.” — Carrie Mathison

The two continue their romance and kinoodle at Carrie’s ancestral cabin.  Carrie accidentally mentions his favorite tea Yorkshire Gold, and Brody realizes she’s been spying on him.  

She comes clean and confronts him about where his allegiances stand.  He vaguely admits to being Muslim and meeting Abu Nazir before leaving.

Carrie is dismissed from the CIA due to the conflict of interest involved in her romantic relationship with Sergeant Brody.

Brody’s comrade and fellow captive Corporal Thomas Walker initiates a sniper attack on American dignitaries putting Brody in a bunker wearing a suicide vest with 27 of America’s best and brightest.

Brody relents from the attack due to a vest malfunction and following an emergency phone call from his daughter Dana.

Carrie’s mental health issues manifest and she  gets electroconvulsive therapy of her own volition.

Six months later Carrie is shoehorned back into the CIA when her bosses Saul Berenson and David Estes fly her to Lebanon for a meeting with an old asset of hers Fatima Ali.  

Fatima relinquishes the time and location of a planned meeting between her husband and Abu Nazir in exchange for defection.

Carrie, Saul, and Estes set up an operation to capture al-Qaeda commander-in-chief Abu Nazir, but Sergeant Brody tips him off and abeds his escape.

In Beirut Saul happens upon a memory card containing Brody’s confession to the aborted State Department bombing.

Carrie attempts suicide by overdosing on her medication.  She changes her mind via reverse peristalsis.  Moments later Saul arrives with Brody’s confession.

Brody’s confession convinces Estes to let Carrie surveille Brody under the supervision of black ops specialist Peter Quinn.

Carrie gets Brody in an interrogation room off the grid and breaks him, he admits to his collaboration and work with Nazir and other al-Qaeda associates.

He also reveals the fact that there is an imminent and premeditated attack coming soon to American soil.

Brody is then turned and becomes a double agent.

Nazir detains Carrie and  leverages her life over Brody precipitating an assassination of Vice President William Walden.

Nazir releases Carrie and is slain.

During the Vice President’s service on 12/12 al-Qaeda operatives detonate a bomb planted in Congressman Brody’s car at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.  The blast kills over 219 active agents.

Al-Qaeda top brass then leaks Brody’s confession video to American news outlets, framing him for the bombing.  He leaves and crosses the southern U.S. border.

Carrie is scapegoated to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence when Saul divulges her bipolar disorder in his testimony.

Carrie endures a small stint in a mental institution.  She is then approached by the man responsible for the bombing Majid Javadi, second in command of Iran’s Intelligence Directorate and deputy chief of the IRGC.

They round up Brody and get him to seek political asylum in Tehran, Iran with the express goal of assassinating the leader of the Revolutionary Guard one Danesh Akbari.

Brody’s first attempt fails but ultimately he enters the Revolutionary Guard headquarters and strangles Akbari with his bare hands.

Javadi demands Brody’s head in exchange for his potential work with the CIA.  Brody is captured, convicted of treason and sentenced to death.  He is hanged in a public square in Tehran.

Several years later Carrie is working the private sector in Berlin, Germany with her daughter Frannie.

Several attempts are made on Carrie’s life as a result of a data penetration made on CIA’s Berlin Station.  

This turns out to be an attempt to cover up the biggest penetration of American Intelligence in history courtesy of Allison Carr and the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR).

A terrorist cell poisons Carrie’s co-worker and close friend Peter Quinn with sarin, and threatens to unleash a chemical attack on a major European city unless the UNSC officially recognizes their group geographically.

Carrie stops their biological attack on Hauptbahnhof  train station.

Quinn survives but remains in a coma and suffers a massive brain hemorrhage.  She visits him in the hospital and removes his pulse monitor leaving his fate ambiguous.

“As you know, the first 72 hours after a soldier’s capture are critical.  What he knows can be used by the enemy during that period to devastating effect.  The point is Sergeant Brody stopped being a source of actionable intelligence fairly quickly, and yet he was kept alive for eight more years.  I’d like to ask him if he knows why.” — Carrie Mathison

Saul Berenson

Saul Berenson recruited Carrie Mathison as a young Arabic language student at Princeton University.  He is Middle East Division Chief of the CIA.

He reluctantly acquiesces her unauthorized surveillance of Sergeant Nicholas Brody, but tries to remain level-headed regarding the matter.

After an operation with Carrie in Beirut, Saul finds a copy of the confession tape that Brody had recorded prior to his suicide vest incident.

This leads to Saul, Carrie, and Estes forming a task force attempting to use Brody as a double agent against al-Qaeda operatives.  Soon after this task force is assembled Abu Nazir is killed and the 12/12 bombing of CIA headquarters takes places in Langley, Virginia killing 219 agents.  

As a result of Estes’ death Saul becomes acting director of the CIA.  Saul pulls the trigger on an operation executing 6 high priority al-Qaeda associates in retaliation for the 12/12 bombing.

Saul is forced to lean on Carrie and her history of mental illness in order to maintain the integrity of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Saul dangles an unhinged and unstable Carrie over his old friend and 2nd in command in Iran one Majid Javadi, who takes the bait.  

Javadi embezzled millions from the Iranian government to fund the 12/12 attack, and is turned into a high level CIA asset placed in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Saul sends Brody to Iran where he asks for asylum.  Saul wants him assassinate the commander-in-chief of Iran’s revolutionary guard Danesh Akbari so CIA asset Majid Javadi can take his place.

Brody makes it into Tehran, where his first attempt to kill Akbari fails.  Ultimately Brody is able to suffocate the Intelligence Chief of Iran in his office and flees.

Brody’s location is given up to the Iranians at the adamant request of Javadi before his extraction package can render.

Brody is executed in Tehran.  Saul is fired by his new boss Senator Andrew Lockhart and he heads over to the private sector.

Saul spends a short time in Pakistani captivity as a bargaining chip of terrorist Haissam Haqqani.

Saul is rehired by the CIA after his time in captivity.

Soon after, a data breech occurs releasing information about the BND or Federal Intelligence Service bypassing German privacy laws by having the Americans run surveillance for them.

This data breech exposes Berlin Station Chief Allison Carr’s divulgence of CIA intel to the SVR for over 10 years.  Saul collars her.

“I know.  But he can do something.  Something to break the logjam.  Something besides another war.  Something that’ll change the facts on the ground… just enough so two countries that haven’t been able to communicate for over 30 years except through terrorist actions and threats… can sit down and talk.  That’s the play Carrie.  Tell me it’s not worth your time.” — Saul Berenson
