Critic Consensus: While it's hard to root for Carrie at this point, "From A to B and Back Again" was an exciting hour that gave one storyline a satisfying end, while setting up the second half of the season.

Critic reviews for From A to B and Back Again
Every week it becomes increasingly harder to root for her. That she was willing to sacrifice Saul without even blinking destroys whatever empathy she had left after seducing Aayan and berating Fara. Have the writers painted themselves into a corner?
"From A to B and Back Again," served as a miniature encapsulation of what's happened in the fourth season so far.
"From A to B and Back Again" may be the most satisfying episode since the season 3 premiere.
It was a fairly fast and furious hour. Carrie was all business (after the disgusting kisses) with Aayan as she was ready to get him to "London."
A strong, portentous episode of Homeland closes out the Carrie/Aayan thread in a sad if satisfactory manner, while also setting up the second half of the season.
