Abbudin is rich with oil, which is probably why we were making nice with them. However, since the US was helping with the coup, Jamal now wants to work with China, our frenemy. Meanwhile, Rashid came up with a plan to kill Jamal. He got one of his soldiers to try to take Jamal out, but it didn't work and the soldier ended up being shot multiple times. The show ends with Jamal promising that he will get his revenge.
On the other side of the world, well, does anyone care what happening with Barry's family in the US? I know I don't. If you must know, Molly is grieving and has no idea what to do with her life after Barry and Sam got a random call from his booty-call.
Now it seems like tonight's episode will show Jamal following through with his threat and is planning a chemical attack. I feel like the US will get involved somehow. At least that's what we did in real life. But what I'm looking forward to is seeing Leila upset about it. Woman still confuses me.
