David tries to calm the ambassador down, he tells him he has a half dozen special operatives sitting in a prison in Pakistan and he is asking him to ignore that for the time being.
Meanwhile, Pakistan is proud they are holding firm. Jilal finds out and asks for advice, he is told to gather men and weapons, stay out of sight. Jilal wants to attack the 20,000 Americans that are in their country, he is told that it will only bring more, don’t be stupid.

Carrie goes inside, Morley is there, he threatens to call for help when he sees her. She manages to grab his attention and show him the information from the flight recorder. Carrie gets her confirmation, the President’s helicopter was not shot down, it was an engine malfunction. Saul tells her they need to get the black box, she says it is with the Russians and she has no credibility. She tells him to get to Russians and ask what they want to get it back, he says ok, but it is time to turn herself in. Carrie goes back to the truck.

Saul gets a call, nobody at the Russian embassy has heard anything about the flight recorder; he is told that he is barking up the wrong tree. Saul can’t believe it, Yevgeny took it, the Russian government has to have it. Saul pleads with Victor to tell him what they said, he says he did what he can. Saul wants to know their exact words, Victor says, “we have what we want.”
Carrie is stuck in a traffic jam, two men ambush her truck and kidnap her by gunpoint. Yevgeny is there, he tells her that it wasn’t personal. She tells him that he took something of hers and she wants it back. He says Saul is looking for it too and for him, there is no price, for her, there may be. Yevgeny tells her that there is an agent that has secrets about his country and he needs to know his name. Carrie tells him there is nobody, and even if there was, Saul, won’t give it up, there is nothing she can do. He says it won’t be easy, but this is her only option. She tells him she can’t betray Saul, he says that from what he has seen, she can do just about anything.
Jilal is testing out his firearms with is men when he advisor drives up and tells him that he found a target, Americans. His advisor tells him that if he kills Americans it will mean more war. Jilal won’t listen, he says his father gave up and he won’t.
Carrie calls Saul, he says he spoke to the Russians and they don’t know anything about the black box, he knows they are lying and keeping it, he just can’t figure out why. He tells her to think, and then asks if Yevgeny said anything. She says no. Carrie is back with her driver, she tells him that the people who took her made her an offer and she has no option but to accept, she heads back out of the truck again, she is on her own.

Jenna is watching Carrie in the interrogation room, she then goes in and brings her a bottle of water. She asks her why she there, Carrie says because they have been looking for her. Jenna tells her that Pakistan is going to release their team of 20 and she knows the black box is a lie.
