VIDEO: Claire Danes delves into a Homeland conspiracy

In the psychological thriller, CIA officer Carrie Anderson (Claire Danes) is suspicious about the intel that led to the rescue of U.S. solider Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), presumed dead for nine years. Is it possible that this is an elaborate setup connected to an Al Qaeda plot?

Baccarin, who also previously starred opposite Nathan Fillion in Firefly, will play Brody's wife, replacing Laura Fraser, who played the role in the pilot.
