If you subscribe to Showtime you automatically have Showtime on Demand.
Start watching it there from episode 1.
You cannot just pick it up in the middle.
It is a story about a POW Marine in Iraq, held captive for 8 yrs. by Al Qaida, who is turned and is a terrorist,, or is he??

SPOILER ALERT, if you have not seen this show, don't read this post.





My idea is that he was murdered.
If he was going to commit suicide he would have done it before giving up the information.

Default murdered?

by whom? who else had access to the guy? i think it was Brody who slipped him the razor. but i don't know why yet. it looks as though Brody might not be as clear after the little boy Issa flashbacks.

He was a prisoner of the CIA, they can make a murder look like a waterfall if they wanted to .

Yes, good show. Lots of misdirection and shades of grey.

Default tonight episode

a leak in the government? things are juicing up. has to be a small circle of people who knew the details of all the things the CIA has going on. Brody going bad? or is he working as a double or triple agent? i never watch previews of the next weeks show either.

I have thought for a while that Brody is a double agent.
