Zeitoun: Part 4: Thursday September 22 Summary & Analysis

Raleigh calls Kathy to tell her that he’s been to Hunt, and they’ve confirmed that Zeitoun is there. When Kathy calls Ahmad, he says she has to go herself, since no one has actually seen Zeitoun. Ahmad says he’ll fly to New Orleans himself, but Kathy tells him not to—he could be arrested too.
Finally, Kathy knows exactly where Zeitoun is, though even this knowledge is accompanied by a renewed sense of helplessness, since she still has no way of actually seeing him.
