After watching John Oliver's take on U.S. Drone Strikes on Last Week Tonight, tonight's episode is really tough to watch.

I wasn't expecting them to match up with the greatness of season 3. But so far I'm not really interested at all. The killed off Peter Russo way to quick. The shit he had going on looked exciting.

I guess she's going to be investigating the intel source in Pakistan, but that seems like a dud story on its surface. Hopefully something interesting comes from the Pakistani kid. Maybe he was working for his uncle?

5. "GODDAMN that was close. (SPOILERS)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I started sweating as SOON as Carrie looked at Baby Brody kinda funny in the tub, like, "Aw, shit..."

That was close.

I do like there being conflict with Carrie wanting to be out in the field instead of doing the right thing and being a mother to her child. It's understood that Baby Brody's obviously a physical reminder of him and their illicit love. I wonder how far they're going to take it, though. I mean, aside from having Carrie considering drowning ol' girl, that is.

I ain't mad at Quinn, either. That scene in the diner with the heckler asshole dudes was lame, though. I'm also hoping he and Carrie don't start fucking around, if only because it will mean certain death for him.

Ol' boy from Life of Pi is going to have to start doing some shit aside from looking really sad and half mad. But I'm with the story so far, and am wondering what those vials are. I'm also hoping we go back to ol' girl who he dropped the vials off to, cause she was hot.

And I wasn't surprised they killed off Corey Stoll early on, if only for the shock of it, with the message being, "Don't get too comfortable, niggas, Saul might get popped next week if we feel like it."

I liked both ep's but that felt so out of place... him fucking her, fine, him defending her from some "bullies" like we're in 8th grade, cmon

You know they've established Carrie is truly batshit crazy when I really wasn't sure if she was gonna kill baby brody

oh, and cosign on life of pi's girl... when she opened the door I was very impressed

I like the story of her going back and digging deep on what was exposed, also like life of pi having his own side story, should be a good season

I kept thinking "Is this meant to be a joke?"

They couldn't find one cute-enough red-haired child?

Twins are often used, so maybe that was kicker.

No good-looking ginger twins available.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

into the show. It's the reason that Brody stuff became intolerable. By all accounts, dude should have died season 1, at the very least, some point during season 2. But the writers were enamored with their "love" story and forced the issue. I guess that's how they hook women viewers. Who knows.

But they're doing the same thing with Quinn. There is NO reason for their to be a romance between those characters other than women viewer fan service IMO. The writers must think that ultimately, Homeland is about love. And that's not good. Just focus on the suspense. The spy craft. The sudden bursts of action. I don't need character shipping.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

I still think they could have kept Brody in the mix past Season 1 if they didn't wallow in the phony love story in Season 2.

I'll also add that anyone who still thinks Brody should have blown up the bunker in Season 1 is flat out wrong. Not to say they couldn't have killed him in the same episode after that, but the vest should not have gone off.

I expect anything from bipolar semi-infanticidal Carrie at this point.

Then of course, Quinn finds out, goes apeshit in Pakistan, and causes an international incident that gets them all expelled, Haqqani gets away, and Life of Pi gets murdered

cue next season

the best way to enamor the asset that quickly was a physical relationship (from her perspective. Which, as the poster above noted, says something about her as an agent or a woman....I dont know...)?

26. "None of this is fucking ok (c)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Why must showtime do this to every fucking show?

the unnecessary melodrama, the dragging on, the having to spell shit out for the audience?

Remember that movie The Siege? that's what this shit feels like. The CIA operative recruits and develops feelings for the source, only to find out he was with the other side all along.

Brody was a prophet. This is not OK.

The only bright spot so far is Fara. Ironically, she's getting closer and closer to the dark side.

to see Saul in that trunk. Because it meant he was going to be a huge part of the story. He is by far the best thing in the show.

They need to ditch every single iota of a love story from this show. Homeland is at its best when it is almost solid action/thriller.
That shit last season with Brody trying to get into Iran and the subsequent triple agent shit was fantastic.

I get that the CIA and ISI are on some frenemy shit. But what did the ISI want with the kid? Are they trying to protect Unc?

In response to Reply # 34


  

          

and helped to keep them in power

it was all a power play to have a backup against Pakistan's worst enemy, India.

The show is framing it that way as well. I wonder if in real life the CIA would take the shot? imagine the kind of torture the ex-director of the CIA would be subject to if the taliban got their hands on him. All that information...

But I went through the 5 stages as soon as that ginger headed bastard busted into the room:

1- no...no way! come on man...WTF??

2- This is such bullshit! this show has the worst writing ever! fuck showtime! fuck everything! is fucking Dana and the rest of the family gonna show up too?? fuck this shit! yes wake up, it was all a dream (c)

3- (as the scene continues and he's calming her down) wait....what if...the iranians let him down the crane at the last second??? what if he miraculously survived? holy shit am I bugging out? am I turning into Carrie Mathison? this show is driving me crazy

4- this sucks, poor chick is gonna be a in straitjacket forever after this

5- OK, clearly miss ISI put some himalayan hallucinogens in those pills...and now Mr. ISI is gonna milk her for all the info she's worth.

Shit was fucked up man

sidenote: she bumps into a large dude right before the cops and ISI thugs trap her in the street. Large dude looked just like Huell, finally the DEA let him out of the safe house.

My reaction when I saw him. I almost turned the tv off right then and there.

I think the did a good just depicting the slow demise into schizophrenia (or whatever she has). Towards the end of it, I was starting to get a little uncomfortable.

This current 3-episode (and counting) run is right up there with anything they've done in the much-worshipped and overly-praised season 1.

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

not sure where you got that from.

i'm saying he shoulda killed himself because it's what he wanted. but Carrie managed to crank her shitty level up past 10 so that she talked him out of their promise via manipulation only to lead him to the enemy solely so that he'd still be alive in order to make herself feel better.

him killing himself was the right move, period.

i'm not saying he should have done it just to make her mad or whatever. is anyone here saying that?

And no matter how you look at it....that's some cruddy shit. It was obvious that there was no way she was going to be able to get Saul out of there. Yet she still took it upon herself to talk him down JUST to keep him in play for a chance at catching the Uncle.

damn that was a tense 50 minutes...

This show has so much potential when they don't waste time on Carrie's relationships or her being fucking crazy

I really thought Saul was gonna off himself sitting with that gun

I can't wait for the diplomat's husband to get his

Homegirl who's working with him tho, she has "evil, cuniving bitch I want to fuck" down pat

Would have to think Carrie leading Saul to be captured again means they will eventually save him, and when they do, the saul/carrie convo should be classic

Lockhart has turned into a real entertaining "fuck the bad guys" type. He cracked me up the whole time

In response to Reply # 55


  

          

they're gonna do the exchange, Lockhart walked in and told the ISI we will meet Haqqani's demands

But Saul will hold a grudge against Carrie for that and if the writers are smart they won't just have him get over it in one episode

Again, when they don't make Carrie a skeezer/love struck teenager the show has potential

They do this stuff so well, it's amazing. I know the show has had some issues over the years. Most notably anything involving the Brody family after Season1. But the work they put in on the political intrigue front is top notch.

That shit was nuts. They can't be all dead can they? It looks like maybe Carrie's car didn't get a direct hit.

Are they about to do a Iran Hostage type deal or Benghazi?

This season is way better than last. As an above poster has said already, the love story is the show weakness. Keep it as a political thriller.

It's not clear to me how he identified the CIA handler/driver as a leak.

I'm assuming he killed the guy, though obviously we'll find out next week.

who is that? I thought the driver who drove him was on his side. and the guy he captured was the ISIS fucker who captured Sal in the airport. that car just followed them once they were out of the embassy. Or are you talking about someone else? shit. i might just have to watch the episode again

I want to believe that the writers woke up to the clusterfuck and predictable trash they subjected us on the first 6 eps and rightfully turned the series around.

Can't wait til next week

I don't think he is a traitor. Maybe he has some long game cooking with Haqqani and the Taliban to work within American interests. Kind of like the thing he had going in Iran

or fact? whatever, it's a good setup for the finale but it felt kinda forced "let's just throw a wrench in the mix" type thing. While Saul is recovering from his injuries it turns out Dar Adal was controlling/protecting haqqani all along? or just made a last minute deal? tune in next week!

Dar - "its a sentimental idea, saul always has been."

Saul - "that we are loyal to our ppl?"

Dar - "that our ppl come before the mission."


i have an inkling that Dar was running the long game (possibly with redmond) and that carrie came in and carrie'd the situation.

How are they going to introduce so many uninteresting characters and story lines in the last 30 minutes of the season?
I think about a quarter of the episode was Carrie in her car driving.

Why should I care about her family drama now? What's the point?. They never talked about her mom before, why now?
I don't care about the lovey dovey stuff between Carrie and Quinn. It wasn't really built up too much before, so I can't take it seriously in the final 10 minutes of the show.
The Dar Adal payoff was wack too. I was hoping his siting in Pakistan was going to be built up into a big thing. But they mostly swept it under the rug. Disappointing.

The only good thing that came out of this finale is the foreshadowing of Quinn kicking ass in Syria next season.
If they're smart, the writers will focus more on the counter-terrorism stuff next time. There was like a 4-5 episode run this season where they did that and the show was unstoppable. Stick to that formula.

even moreso after Andrew Luck cost me $1,000 in fantasy football...

then they gave us that... arguably the worst episode in the history of the show, and definitely the most disappointing finale I've ever seen...

they introduce a character (Carrie's Mom) and a storyline nobody gives a shit about...

They are totally ruining Quinn by making him go full blown pussy for Carrie

The explanation over Dar Adal was mind boggling

not even gonna go there on Baby Brody

and this was not good.

Homeland has always been a fast paced psychological thriller. Just recently they introduced more action into the mix.

This episode had none of that. It seemed like I was watching an episode of My So Called Life with all that unnecessary drama.

They're gonna keep milking the "love bird/exotic new counter-terrorist locales" for another 3 seasons at least.

the whole crazy impossible love shit is trash
So far we've had Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan...and coming up: Syria/ISIS! FOH
Again, showtime can just throw darts at a mid east map and write an entire season around it.
now it's the absent mom, the half brother, baby brody gonna be walking and talking next season "where's my daddy?" FOH
Dar Adal cut a deal "for the greater good" FOH (even though this is probably the most realistic part of the series)
She's gonna be chasing Quinn on some "I'm sorry! let's get out together! you were right!" FOH

Showtime really knows how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

But, it was one of the most realistic episodes they showed....

****SPOILERS******

Dar Adal obviously was making a deal that must somehow invlolves Quinn getting handed over...

Saul wanted back in at all cost.....

Carries drama is just adding another layer to the show for future seasons.

I was like everybody else I wanted to see Quinn jumping out of a plane screaming Carries name with guns blazing.. or really I wanted him to push the button on that mo fo in the prev episode...

but I will be back for season 5..

In response to Reply # 89


          

i'm just going to pretend that was the first episode of season 5 getting off to slow start

the last 6 or so episodes leading up to it were fantastic, not only better then I expected homeland to ever be again, but possibly as good as its ever been. Not mad I stuck with it at all - maybe part of the writers formula is that having completely non-action based episodes slowly leading up to something big makes that much of a bigger impact when you do get to an incredible"OH SHIT" twist like Ayyan getting shot in the head with Saul right there...if it was non-stop action forever with 0 character development I think those types of things would have less impact
