Ok, here goes...

Season 2 - Episode 1

Spoiler:
Basically at the start of season 2, Carrie understands that her life in the CIA is over. They found out about her condition and she knew once that happened, there was nothing she could do. She thought that was the end of it and she was beginning to move on. It wasn't until Fatima Ali (her old asset) contacted the CIA and told them she was only willing to speak with Carrie. Galvez comes to Carrie's workplace on Estes' behalf and she refuses to help; it wasn't until Saul asked that Carrie agreed. She eventually makes her way to Beirut and almost gets apprehended (Saul tells her to give up, although she refuses.) She eventually manages to get away and before the episode ends, you can see her flash this smile (I read that as her being happy to be "back").

Season 2 - Episode 2-3

Spoiler:
Carrie eventually meets with her asset and finds out that she is ready to defect to the United States. Saul was supposed to be at this meeting with Fatima, but Carrie changed up the plans after almost being caught. Being that Saul wasn't there when for the meeting with Fatima, Estes was very hesitant to rely on Carrie's word (which had to be tough because she just put her life on the line for the same agency that kicked her out). They end up deciding to go through with the mission and if you recall, Brody ends up saving Abu Nazir's life after texting him a warning message. They take Fatima back to her home to get her things and Carrie insists they let her check the house for any use full information (Saul was not to happy about this), although it paid off in the end because Carrie located the microchip with Brody's confession.

When they make it back home to the States, Carrie begins to feel like she might be on her way to making it back in. She is quickly reminded that she is not a part of the CIA when Estes doesn't allow her to do the debriefing. He reminds her that she's done a great job, bu shoots down any possibility of her reinstatement. At the end of this episode Saul shows Carrie the Brody confession tape - this to me is the turning point of her "reinstatement" (I put the quotes because I don't know if she has her job back, or if she is just allowed to work the Brody case till the end).

Season 2 - Episode 4 and possible information about Episode 5-8

Spoiler:
Carrie was shown the tape first and Estes saw it second, at this point, they decided to spy on Brody. They even encourage Carrie to reconnect when Brody reaches out to her. At this point you can see Carrie is back into the mix, but they have Quinn running the actual misson.

Spoiler:
I don't think Carrie will ever get her job back, but she will be allowed to see the Brody/Nazir mission through. She's irreplaceable and comes across and less crazy because her once "false" accusations, are now know to be correct.

Sorry for the long post, I didn't want to miss anything.

Just remember to use spoiler alerts, even in the information is minimal (I'm the type of person who doesn't even watch episode previews.)

stevieg,

Spoiler:
I was watching in tears awaiting his death as well and that whole scene shocked me (I thought it was very well done). This show never disappoints - they gave us a long season finale and I thought it was brilliant - I'm so excited for season 3

Spoiler:
I thought it was incredible too, but it was just such a big turn of events from what I expected I can't decide if it was too out of nowhere to stay as believable as the show has been. I think I'll come around over time, but for now I'm just in shock Shocked

I feel like I need to re-watch season 2 (possibly season 1) before the new season arrives.

Okay so I just watched the first season. I'll try to avoid this thread due to spoilers and haven't read anything in it so far, but I do have one question. Does anyone know about bipolar disorder in depth?

Because my understanding is that it makes you either really happy or really depressed, but not crazy. It wouldn't make you draw illogical conclusions. Not sure how it affects decision making but I have a feeling it is also dramatized to great effect. Could anyone clarify this for me?
