cali1981 December 15, 2015 Share December 15, 2015 (edited) When the agent in the bathroom told Allison they were taking her out of field service, my first thought was "by killing you". That's what I thought along with the "you're damaged goods" line. I don't think that Allison double crossed the Russians at all but was doing exactly what she was ordered to do, contact Aziz, get the info on the bomb location and and then mislead German Intelligence and the CIA on that to insure that the attack succeeded. As fanciful as it seemed, the Russian agent's chilling, dispassionate explanation of the motives for allowing the bombing made some sense. ISIS is a principal threat to their client Assad in Syria and they now sense that it may represent a threat to them. Russia is surrounded by republics with large Muslim populations and, after numerous invasions throughout its history, is very paranoid about protecting the homeland (a year of Russian and Soviet history drummed that concept into me). If you accept that premise it makes sense that the Russians would try to marshal international and especially US support to destroy ISIS. What better way than a horrific terrorist act that might rival or exceed the 9/11 attacks? Maybe it's a stretch but there is a shred of plausibility to it. As far as Allison goes, you have to wonder if she's now running from the CIA, the Germans and the Russians. Saul knows that she misled them about the bomb's location so she has no cards left to play. As others have stated, the Russians may want her dead to tie up loose ends and to maintain some degree of deniability. Don't think that the Black Sea dacha is going to work out for our girl.
