"There is another option: ibogaine, a drug based on a Nigerian plant," Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) recommends. "It dramatically accelerates the withdrawal process and kills the addiction."
CIA director Saul Berenson (Mandy Patimkin) is warned of the side effects: "violent mind-bending hallucinations," and gives the go-ahead.
We don't see the ibogaine administered, but Brody freaks out on it. "What the fuck did you give me?" he asks hysterically. Brody breaks a chair and stabs his arm with the broken shard. But apparently it does indeed help him get back on his feet and participate in Saul's latest "play" - an attempt to infiltrate Iran's high command.
