Hm, in those 6.12 stills, Carrie looks perplexed while Keane looks like she's talking about something serious. If Keane pulls a Notto and invites Carrie into the Oval Office to offer her a "proposal" in more ways than one, I will SCREAM.

You mean the President of the United States proposes same-sex marriage to Carrie? 

But seriously, I hope she asks Carrie to return to the CIA and to some kind of operations type of job, I’m sick of these cabinet meetings. And the PEOTUS. 

anonymous asked:

A comment that possibly goes for some forum, but yesterday I rewatched 3x12 and I always liked a lot (during the speech given by Lockhart) that Quinn and Carrie were sitting side by side. I feel he is giving her a small, intimate, silent support at that "star" moment. (I'm the only one?)..

Definitely not the only one. Quinn’s presence in the last few episodes of season three was minimal but in the epilogue very narratively important. In some ways he’s replaced Saul as her professional and personal confidante – both because Saul is no longer at the CIA and because something fractured in Carrie and Saul’s relationship at that point. Quinn offers Carrie the support that Saul used to, or would have. 

anonymous asked:

Maybe Max is becoming the "new Quinn", he is always so loyal to Carrie, knows CIA life, and is protecting Carrie, trusts her and knows her shit,but stays anyway. A good decent man,like Quinn really is, but without the damages and crazyness they now have put on Quinn to make him seem unfit as partner and parent.

Aww, we are glad someone finally remembered Max as a contender. You know, in the S6 love interest race. Looks like everyone else is a dud anyway, so he might actually have a shot. 

Things that can’t die:

–Climbing stuff


–Secret don’t-notice-me spy clothing, rumpled

–Acting like a red-headed step-child to Dar Adal

–the fml smile

–Intense staring that would prob be annoying irl

–Anger management issues that end up being oddly understandable(?) and then you wonder if you need therapy too

–Saving bfs…like not even Carrie would be sitting in the CIA director’s bedroom in the dark with a weapon on her lap to save Brody omg

–Topless sweaty bomb-making?? like the show doesn’t care

–When he was mumbling at the committee and was my soul

–When he looks like a baby bird that fell out of a nest

—When he looks like a baby bird in a nest looking down on humans and being like WHAT NOW BITCHES?

–And obviously

anonymous asked:

Dar's machinations are beginning to strike me as more and more implausible. Dar, Saul, Carrie, and Quinn worked in the CIA for years. They would all have friends, allies, and enemies in the agency. It is impossible to believe that there aren't a line of people waiting to stab that knife into Dar's chest. They would be watching him and warning Saul and Carrie every step of the way.

Dar and O’Keefe’s characters don’t feel particularly ambiguous or Homelandian, do they? Spies can be spies in a host of complicated ways. I might entertain the idea that Dar is a double spy willing to expose the alt right conspiracy… but who will ever get over “dirty old man”?

My own concern is primarily the terror and violence carried out by my own state, for two reasons. For one thing, because it happens to be the larger component of international violence. But also for a much more important reason than that; namely, I can do something about it. So even if the U.S. was responsible for 2 percent of the violence in the world instead of the majority of it, it would be that 2 percent I would be primarily responsible for. And that is a simple ethical judgment. That is, the ethical value of one’s actions depends on their anticipated and predictable consequences. It is very easy to denounce the atrocities of someone else. That has about as much ethical value as denouncing atrocities that took place in the 18th century.

‘Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien In Talks To Play Mitch Rapp In Vince Flynn Spy Novel Adaptation ‘American Assassin’

EXCLUSIVE: Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations with CBS Films to play Mitch Rapp in American Assassin, the adaptation of the Vince Flynn bestselling novel series that Michael Cuesta will direct for CBS Films and Lionsgate. O’Brien will play the title character, who ruthlessly carries out covert counter-terrorist operations for the CIA in the book series. A deal is expected to make shortly, ending a long search for what is expected to be a star making role. He would star alongside Michael Keaton, who signed on earlier to play Stan Hurley, a badass Cold War veteran who teaches the young assassin everything he needs to know. Stephen Schiff adapted the novel and Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler are producing. CBS Films and Lionsgate are co-financing; CBS Films is overseeing the production and marketing while Lionsgate will release what is hoped to be the start of a series. Production begins this fall.

Lionsgate will be selling foreign on the film, and having O’Brien in the fold will surely help. It also means he’s recovering from his injuries incurred during the shooting of Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which had to be postponed to give him time.

The series will begin as Rapp is a black ops recruit who’s devastated by the loss of his fiancee to a terrorist attack. The CIA deputy director assigns the shadowy Hurley to train a grief-stricken but highly motivated Rapp how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators. As Rapp’s training progresses, the pair is dispatched on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative from starting World War III in the Middle East. Rapp appears in 14 bestselling novels written by Flynn, who died in 2013. This has long been thought of as fertile ground for an action franchise, but it has taken forever to crystallize.

O’Brien is best known for The Maze Runner, and he’s part of the cast of the upcomingDeepwater Horizon, which is being made by Summit so clearly they got a good look at the young actor’s potential. WME and Principal Entertainment rep him.

anonymous asked:

So was the whole Allison being a Russian mole covered up completely by Dar and Saul? And is Saul getting the blame because he was sleeping with Allison? How was he supposed to know she was working with the a Russians? I know he was there when she was killed though so maybe that's what his part in the whole thing is.

Saul’s concern is not so much that he’ll be blamed for sleeping with Allison (ITO doing anything illegal), but that the scandal would ruin his reputation and his legacy at the CIA. 

That said, Carrie may not know what we know, in ordering Allison’s execution, Saul may also be complicit in the cover up. Maybe that’s the real reason he’s so nervous LOL.

anonymous asked:

I think this episode set up Carrie’s inexorable return to the CIA.If Keane’s plan goes forward and Saul is publicly burned, Dar prosecuted… who’s left? Who will shepherd the CIA through all this upheaval?Saul basically says that Keane will try to disband the CIA altogether, once Dar is taken out. And if Saul’s the collateral damage, there won’t be anyone left to protect the Agency. It’s looking like Carrie will be the only person in a position to save the Agency.

There is something missing here, and I rarely get this feeling. Carrie seemed to hop on board the “ok let’s go after Dar using the Berlin station dirt even though that means throwing Saul under the bus, too” train too quickly. She was all up in arms in Keane’s hotel room and then when she got to the park was in a completely different seat. 

I think Saul picked up on it, too. She couldn’t even look at him when he connected the dots that this could lead to Keane shuttering the Agency (which it won’t, obviously, but it leads back to Keane’s earlier promise of “wholesale reform of the CIA” which is apparently what they both want). 

Did Carrie make a deal with Keane? Deliver Saul and the Agency is hers? I think we may have missed a moment there in the hotel room. Nevertheless, I still struggle to believe that Carrie would want that. Exactly why again? 

anonymous asked:

Re your answer about being perturbed that Q ordered the drone over Makin in 4.08, just remember that Carrie, John Redmond, and another dozen CIA brains in the room heard that order and none of them questioned it. Feel better? 😅

Yeah, they were all pretty dumb. A lot dumber than their Pakistani counter parts, that’s for sure. 

anonymous asked:

Ladies, I am reading your answers about Franny's situatuation (putting her first). But it seems to me that what Shrink meant is a way bigger picture, It is not about Quinn, Its about Carrie puting her kid first choosing the way of life,( dangerous job- CIA etc). It was not about Quinn. It is about puting her kid at risk (and people in general - remember what she said 2 Max?). Since there will be 2 more seasons, it means current situation ab Franny will be resolved, Carrie will be back at CIA

The situation is complex and first and foremost about Franny. It was a ninety minute session and the therapist was almost certainly referring to Carrie’s life as a whole, including the hostage situation, her involvement with Sekou Bah, and her illness, to name a few.

One can argue, however, that the writers are foreshadowing a choice by having the therapist pointing out that Franny should come first in Carrie’s life directly on the heels of Carrie discussing Quinn.

Today in history: June 18, 1954 – The CIA carries out a coup d’état against the democratically-elected Guatemalan government of Jacobo Árbenz Guzmán, replacing it with a brutal military dictatorship. 

The CIA operation was called Operation PBSUCCESS, and included a paramilitary invasion by an anti–communist force. In the early 1950s, the Árbenz Government issued Decree 900, carrying out land reform by expropriating unused farm lands owned by multinational corporations and redistributing the land to Guatemalan peasants. The multinational United Fruit Company (UFC) had owned 42% of the arable land. In response to the expropriation of idle farmland, the UFC asked President Truman and Eisenhower to take action against Árbenz’s government, which resulted in the 1954 coup, the military dictatorship and then later a 36-year civil war (1960–96), in which more than 200,000 Guatemalans were killed.
