-Exfil plan was built on a narrow window of surprise that’s gone. So tell me, with everyone watching, how do we get Simone and you back to the US?
-That’s not the mission. The mission is to retrieve Simone.

The episode opens with a calm, dazed Carrie being wheeled into a hospital room to undergo her third and last ECT treatment. It’s a striking, abrupt shift from the last moments of “Useful Idiot,” where Carrie is crouched against a wall, screaming in horror at the delusions her own mind has created.

The time jump between episodes is about a week, and this opening scene has a lot of ground to cover. Where is Carrie? What’s happening to her? And, most importantly, how is she feeling? In a sense, it needs to provide us, the audience, that same sense of clarity that Carrie finally achieves by episode’s end.

These two shots, filmed from Carrie’s perspective, rendering the subjects blurry and out of focus (ironic, we know), do a lot of that work.

The parallels between Carrie’s ECT in this episode and the one we see at the end of “Marine One” are so blatantly obvious that it feels almost ridiculous to point them out. But Sara will never pass up an opportunity to talk about “Marine One.” First, we should acknowledge the rhythm and choreography of ECT is likely very similar session to session, and even hospital to hospital. It’s like drawing parallels between two appendectomies on Grey’s Anatomy. For a medical procedure, how many different ways are there to do it?

In the editing room, though, it’s clear they made a purposeful decision to connect the two, from the winced face Carrie makes, to the shot of her twitching leg, to the birds eye view of her face post-procedure.
