But thats why I always thought it was kinda stupid Brody was always so confused about what he wanted. And actually because of that, that could be a reason why he's still a terrorist.

There are ex-jihadis out there. For a lot of them the change came after they went to prison though. For Brody, it could be being back amongst his family and away from Abu Nazir that means he spends less time in the terrorists world, so he could waver.

Also he did kill the Vice President. Who seemed to be a man he personally hated. So he might not be able to kill indiscriminately, but specifically. Also, perhaps that killing got it out of his system.

He's killed what, 3 people now?
