HALLELUJAH, SOMETHING KNEW!
First, Carrie wears these expertly raised eyebrows. She’s still wearing the same earrings as last episode (to be fair, why wouldn’t she be?), and I just love that Carrie Mathison is on the run with Yevgeny Gromov while wearing earrings.
THIS. IS. A. LOOK.
I love this entire ensemble. A++++++++
Carrie is wearing this pseudo-“Marine One” jacket, which I love, and which also appeared in “Catch and Release.” I think this must be her ~field~ jacket because we saw something similar in season four and, of course, “Marine One,” which I will never let you all forget about. I think she is wearing the same black pants she’s always wearing and that she wore to the airport. You can’t tell from this photo but she’s also wearing the army green collared blouse, which I’m suspecting is sleeveless. Wow, what a moment!
Last but certainly not least, the boots! These boots are it. Carrie has never worn boots like this. I’m thinking back to her #dark bootcut jean phase in season two and three… there might have been a boot like this, but lemme tell ya, the skinny jean makes all the difference!
I live for a season one parallel.
And now for a recurring series I shall call
Carrie and Yevgeny, a Height Difference Made in Heaven
(I need to pause to just note they’re dressed very similarly–both wearing jackets with pockets on both breasts…. though her entire ensemble is this greyish color while his is black (minus the grey undershirt). They dressed Carrie and Brody in similar ways in season one as well.)
(she barely comes up to his shoulder!!!!)
and now back to our regularly scheduled programming…
Carrie is really into the earth tones this episode, huh? Like I said, I stan this outfit. This is one of her best.
As you all astutely observed, CARRIE IS SLEEPING IN YEVGENY’S TRUCK!!! This is very much a “Quinn is asleep with his gun” moment.
Anyway, overnight Carrie’s changed her top. She’s wearing this long-sleeved v-neck shirt that I have a theory is the blue version of the grey one she wore in “Casus Belli,” “Standoff,” and “All In.” [30 seconds later] NEVER MIND THAT SHIRT WAS A CREW NECK. Anyway, in my head they’re the same because they’re both long-sleeved.
I actually like this a lot and oh my GOD the sleeves are too long so she had to cuff them. BUTTON.
I initially was like “oh, wow, Carrie wore jeans for the first time in like 4 years” (we are forgetting the Light Wash Jean Incident of 2018), and this shot was what made me think that. They look like a really dark wash jean here, plus the stitching on the pockets. But I think the light is just playing tricks on me and these are the rare black pant (I mean, whatever, they’re black jeans) that have non-black stitching. What do you all think?? Because I spent way too much time analyzing this.
Bonus ~Things Tasneem Wore This Week~
Once again a monochromatic ensemble with stilettos and once again we stan. This blue is gorgeous on her. I love how the blues don’t match exactly, but still look pretty darn close. She looks gorgeous. Sartorial queen!
Bonus ~Things Hugh Dancy Wore This Week~
Aside from the tragique hair and beard? There’s this very expensive-looking three piece navy suit and dark red tie. John Zabel is 158% the type of dude who pays $10,000 for a suit and then complains about having to pay higher taxes. Anyway this show needs more slimeballs.
Bonus ~Because I Was Legally Obligated To~
IN CONCLUSION: The boots are the moment. RETURN OF BUTTON. My legal obligations.
