Carrie's fateful choice about Brody sets the stage for season 3, and whether you'll want to keep watching the show
By Adam B. Vary @EW.com





Did he do it?

That is the tanong Homeland has left us with at the end of its revolutionary and controversial segundo season, the tanong its writers hope will fuel countless debates that will carry us until susunod fall. On the one hand, we have Nicholas Brody's word to Carrie that he had nothing to do with the car bombing that killed over 200 souls at C.I.A. headquarters, including David Estes and the rest of Vice President Walden's...

Willkommen to Berlin, where 'Homeland' has hit the reset button once again.

“I’m not atoning. I’m just trying to do good work.” —Carrie Mathison

Over four seasons, Homeland’s major players have always told themselves they were doing “good work,” despite the trail of bodies left in their wake from D.C. to Islamabad. And the drama, for better or worse, has done the same for its protagonist, careening (Carrie-ning?) between untenable highs and ludicrous lows, all in the service of the morally complex yet downright sloppy Carrie Mathison. We’ve seen...

Brody and Carrie both struggle adjusting to their new roles, while Mike's investigation runs afoul of the CIA
By Adam B. Vary




In the last two weeks, Homeland has delivered back-to-back, rock-'em-sock-'em episodes that re-calibrated the show's central story and our expectations for just how much of our own brain matter a telebisyon ipakita could splatter on our couches. This week's episode? Not even a nosebleed. Things downshifted significantly, allowing the characters (and the audience) to soak in their new circumstances. Brody grappled with his sudden status as a double...

Carrie is released and meets with a mysterious client, while Dana runs away with Leo
By Shirley Li at EW








Well, well, well... aren't you just the cleverest show, Homeland? I'm slow-clapping for you in my mind.

Last week's episode was certainly a doozy with the Brody-centric plot that prompted countless "How to fix Homeland"/"What's wrong with Homeland"/"Why Homeland sucks" think-pieces on the Internet, but tonight's oras did one better on the mind-bending front: It conned us, the viewers, with that last-minute plot twist. And I think "Game On" pulled it off -- but...

Welcome back, Homeland, and welcome back, recap readers. If you’re completely new to Carrie and Co., stop what you’re doing and catch up. (Here’s a handy binge-watching guide to help you out.) But if you’re a veteran, well, turn up that jazz music, tear your eyes away from that surveillance feed (sorry, Virgil) and read on for your first recap of the season.

Did we just get a glimpse of Homeland's future? Right as the season 2 end game turned a definitive corner, we briefly met a brand new character whose storytelling reach could easily extend far beyond whatever explosive finish Nicholas Brody appears to be taking the ipakita this season. Sure, Peter Quinn's mysterious CIA minder/contact/svengali — who Saul sinabi used to run "company missions we don't talk about" — could vanish after an episode...

And we're off to the races! Abu Nazir kidnapped Carrie, let her go, and remains at large in the United States. Brody effectively murdered the vice president. Saul dug too deep in his investigation of Peter Quinn. Jessica is so over her husband. Dana is a shell of a human being. Chris suddenly realized his dad's a jerk. Carrie really needs a shower.

Brody's difficulty handling his double agent life brings him closer to Carrie, while Saul revisits an old friend from season 1

"Things are going to ilipat very quickly now," Roya Hammad told Brody at the tuktok of this week's episode. I guess sa pamamagitan ng "now" she meant "maybe susunod week," because this week Homeland felt somehow both overstuffed and uncharacteristically slack. It would be unfair to expect the ipakita to sustain the electric pace of its first five episodes. But much like Mad Men's most kamakailan season, after a series of superlative hours, Homeland's...

After last week's humdinger of a cliffhanger, I was desperately curious to see how Homeland would handle the fact that Brody has been officially outed as an agent of Abu Nazir. Would his life continue to unravel at its heretofore rapid pace, or would the writers cool things off for a week (or two)? Turns out: Both!

We opened with Saul at the Beirut airport, carrying a diplomatic case of great interest to local government officials, who...

The pressure becomes too much for Brody, so Carrie takes matters into her own hands, and how!
By Adam B. Vary at EW






I have a feeling that this week's Homeland may have been a make-or-break episode for some viewers. It showcased many of the show's best strengths, including Claire Danes and Damien Lewis' acting; the taut, ruthless storytelling pace; and Mandy Patinkin's advance placement beardage. It also, however, exposed several of the show's weaknesses, like how thinly written Jessica Brody and Mike Faber are; how little David Estes has to do; and how much credulity-straining...

You asked for less Dana, you got it, Homeland watchers.

In fact, you got zero Dana in "Tower of David," along with zero Leo, zero Jessica, zero Chris (wait, was he even in the last episode?), zero Dar Adal, zero Quinn, and zero Saul. Poof, all gone.

Instead, you got a little bit of Carrie and whole lot of Brody, in a frustrating return for the soldier-turned-terrorist-turned-fugitive. (Welcome back, Damian Lewis!) And that whole lot of Brody was, well, interesting,...

After Saul threw Carrie under the bus last week, I figured there'd be no way Carrie would let him get away with it this week. I could just see it -- Carrie banging down Saul's front door, confronting him, tears streaming down her cryface, insisting he take her side -- because a showdown between the show's two major players (save for a missing Brody, of course) had to be inevitable. Instead, we don't get a moment between the protege...

The hunt for Abu Nazir, the mission that has consumed Carrie Mathison and hung over Homeland for two seasons, is over. Ding dong, the terrorist mastermind is dead. And so is the Brody marriage, as the very last thread binding Jessica and Nicholas Brody together — the prospect of a Walden/Brody presidential ticket and a life in the political spotlight — perished with Walden's death in Brody's arms.
