2. Daniel continues to fight against Keaton

When Sam is captured, he doesn’t want to talk. His view is that he’ll be dishonoring Nadia’s name by not getting the name of her killer. With the clock ticking thanks to arresting the chief communications guy, Shephard makes a suggestion to capture someone, but it means black-bagging them in the street.

Keaton looks like he considers this as an action. Sure, that’s a CIA method of dealing with things, so it’s not surprising Shepherd suggests it. However, Daniel is angry that Keaton would even think about it. This is not something the FBI does.

Instead, Daniel connects with Sam. He’s able to get the name of the guy – who turns out to be dead – and convinces Sam that Nadia wouldn’t want innocent people to be killed. Sam manages to give all the information up about the next bombing location, which is connected to another CIA-run operation, and the FBI save everyone.

At the end, Sam gives Daniel a pin of the Eye of Horus (and I got the feeling this pin will come up again), while sharing that Tal wanted to know how far communications would travel over water. More importantly, Tal wanted to know how far communications would travel over a gulf. Just what is his planning?

Whatever it is, Keaton may not be the one leading the task force. Daniel isn’t too happy about his leader. And neither is someone else…

1. Keaton is on one last warning

After everything that has happened, you would hope that Keaton would be praised, right? After all, he got Tal’s comms guy and managed to stop a bombing. However, his bosses aren’t impressed that Anna was a spy and had managed to compromise months of intel.

By the way, intel isn’t the reason the task force was set up. Keaton’s job is to capture Tal – and I have to wonder how he’s meant to do that without collecting the intel first – and he’s failing on that aspect.

It’s clear that others thing Shepherd is corrupting Keaton’s way of thinking. Nobody is happy with his actions and he’s on one last warning. Can he see some success to prevent losing his job?
