See, now that wasn’t so hard, was it Homeland writers?
Homeland is about Carrie and Saul and the intrigue of the CIA. The past two episodes have focused and honed that aspect of the show that we haven’t missed Brody. We know he’s out there, but we’re not too concerned about it all.
The more we deal with Saul and his past, the more interesting this show ends up. From his broken relationship at home to his work miscues, Saul is by far the most interesting character on the show. He is the heart and soul of all of this.
Some parts of the show still flounder, such as Dana and crew (her mom didn’t even ask for the address? I mean come on), but overall it seems like things are beginning to click again.
My favorite moment was Saul’s aggression in the last scene’s closing seconds. His old enemy has flipped a switch in him and all of the pent up anger and sadness will most likely be directed towards him. We will see!
- Quinn is very hit or miss for me as a character, so while he brings very little to the table, I still don’t mind his presence.
- Carrie’s scenes with our new “bad guy” were excellent. It’s so nice to see her in her spy world, feeling so confident.
- Oh yeah, I guess she’s pregnant? The episode title says it all. Probably with Brody’s kid, based on how many tests she’s taken. We’ll see how this plays out, but I am not happy with this development. At least they tried to weave it all in with her concern for the crying baby in the house, but that could have been for a number of reasons before we learned her secret.
- All I can say it, thankfully Dana isn’t preggers… or is she?
- The murder sequence in the house was brutal.
Keep on Watchin’!
