Well, this is discouraging: http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/12/09/ho...ale-exclusive/


It's the kind of smell-your-own-farts interview you hate to read from a show runner.

Quote:
But the reason we wanted Walden and Nazir both dead is we wanted to open the possibility that Brody and Carrie could have a happy ending, that their doomed romance was not doomed after all. The only way to make that happen was to off these two antagonists.
Ugh. The Carrie-Brody "romance" is the worst part of the show.

Last 20 minutes were pretty damn awesome. PVR cut off at the hour mark. Gonna have to record the replay and see the final couple minutes.

I haven't watched any of the episodes this season - I made it through season one on a weekend, I imagine I will do the same here. Hope it's good.

This season has had a lot of duds, but that episode was fantastic. Great Carrie and Brodie scenes, great Saul scenes. There were a couple of unrealistic things done to serve the story, but that was entertaining.

So ...

Just when I thought the show could not get any worse, they go and totally redeem themselves.

Alright, I'm an idiot and forgot to actually hit record on the replay, so I ended up missing the last few minutes on the PVR.

The last thing I saw was

Spoiler!


the next replay isn't until Tuesday night and I don't wanna wait that long. Did I miss anything big after?

Great finale

I think it was smart the way they dealt with the Brody issue, he can't stay in the forefront of the show but he's always going to be an option down the road

Saul 'The Bear' Berensen was fantastic this episode

tons of things in the episode pointing to it

i was really hoping for one of two endings to this:

1. Just as Carrie and Brody were saying goodbye, he looks at her and says something to the tune of "you're a ####ing idiot, haha, look at how you bought into my ####" cracks her over the head with the butt end of a gun, and runs off.

2. Carrie and Brody say goodbye, he walks away, and as she stands there Quinn comes out of the bushes (as he is a stalking master) and caps Brody like a baws.

neither of these happened... thats ok, I thought it was a solid ending to this season, and leaves lots of room open, which is nice.

IDK, I think we followed Brody's character too closely when he went to the memorial. We watched him park, saw him walk the wife in, take a seat, and then sneak away with Carrie.

Remember when he had the suicide vest, the guy was a complete nervous wreck and Dana knew something was wrong.

When was he supposed to move his car?

And then the leak of his video? Seems like he was set up to me.

I know the US intelligence community has had some issues in real life but in this show they seem to be the dumbest folks around.

They basically are at the mercy of a schziophrenic analyst and even then had the VP killed as well as the CIA director and a ton of VIPs.

The black OP guy sees Brody praying as a Muslim and still thinks that he is a good guy and good to stay alive just because some girl is in love with him?

I like the show but it was much better in the first season when Brody was an unknown and under suspicision but not enough to act on him. Now that it is clear what he was and they let him stroll around like nothing and still have insane access to important people it gets frustrating.

I will stick with the show to see where it goes because they have done so much good with the show but they are getting mighty close to the unbelievable.

Well Quinn knew he was involved in a terrorist plot with a vest bomb, so I'm not sure how seeing him praying is any worse. The only thing that really bothered me is that there's no way they'd let a car be moved that close to so many VIP's.

If this is true the creators are lazy and cheap. You can't withhold information from the audience and then have a "gotcha" moment. That's garbage.

The seeing him pray to me would indicate that he still was under the brainwashing he experienced while captive.

But I do wonder who would have access to the CIA to move the car and how security wouldn't have wondered what the hell a car was doing parked there.I may be mistaken but this wasn't at some random funeral home with no security monitoring the going ons.

He has never wavered in his Islam faith in the entirety of the show.

He has however wavered in helping Abu Nasir kill innocents to revenge the death of children by US drones.

You have to be able to separate the two. Assuming that he's "brainwashed" because he is still follows Islam isn't particularly fair. His religion and his terrorist potential are not the same thing.

Anyone else notice the Tim Hortons product placement in the last few episodes? Every time they are having coffee, it's Tims.

Never watch the show, "Damages". That show did that pretty much for every season finale. It was brutal.

The thing i like about "homeland" despite it's plot holes and the mistakes the CIA makes, I never know what's going to happen next. The show is trying things that no other show has attempted, so we have to realize its not always going to be a smooth ride.
