Carrie needs Allison's help. Quinn's plans change.
In flashbacks, Carrie arrives in Baghdad for the first time. She is there to replace Allison Carr, a case officer who is frustrated with the futility of the situation in Iraq and has decided to take leave. Allison introduces Carrie to one of their most valuable assets, Iraqi attorney Ahmed Nazari, though Ahmed voices his refusal to work with anyone other than Allison. Allison and Ahmed meet privately, where Ahmed indicates romantic feelings for Allison and reveals he's systematically stolen eight million dollars from the Ministry of Justice. When Allison agrees to run away with him, Russian intelligence agent Krupin enters the room. Krupin points out that everything in the room has been recorded and hints that Allison could face federal prison. If Allison agrees to work for the SVR instead, he offers her half of the money along with mutual information exchange that will help her climb the ranks of the CIA.
Saul is detained while Mossad negotiaties with the CIA to arrange his return. When Etai gets word that a deal has been reached, he helps Saul escape the premises.
During a stop for supplies, Quinn gets suspicious of the jihadist group he's escorting to Syria. When he goes to investigate what is being loaded onto their truck, one of the men knocks him out. Bibi remarks to a confused compatriot that they are going back to Berlin, as was always the true plan. Quinn wakes up later, finding himself tied up in the back of the now moving truck, where he can see a supply of chemical weapons.
Carrie arranges a public meeting with Allison where she pleads with Allison to review the case files regarding Ahmed Nazari. A sniper is positioned to shoot Carrie on Allison's signal, but she opts against it. When Numan successfully hacks into Ahmed's laptop, Carrie takes note of a photo of Ahmed at a beachside bar. Carrie recalls a conversation in Baghdad where Allison mentioned a bar in St. Lucia. After a web search confirms it to be the same bar, a shocked Carrie says "Oh my God... Allison."
