Episode Twelve: "The Choice"
Mandy Patinkin's Saul gets a lot of attention just because everybody loves Mandy Patinkin, but compared to Danes and Lewis, his performance has shot off comparatively few fireworks. That's why it was such an agonizing delight to watch him cling to composure with everything he had when he received a phone call out of the blue from his estranged wife Mira following the attack on Langley. Watching him express to her, in as few syllables as possible, how his life has just been completely destroyed was as wrenching as watching him welcome her home was relieving. Forget Brody and Carrie – these are the two crazy mixed-up kids I hope things work out for.
