Homeland fans who have missed Brody will certainly get their fill in Season 3's final four episodes.

On Sunday's episode (9/8c, Showtime), it becomes clear that not only has Saul (Mandy Patinkin) known all along where Brody (Damian Lewis) has been hiding, but also that Saul is counting on Brody to pull off the second part of Saul's master plan.

Homeland: Is Mira Saul's rock, or is she a liability?

There's just one problem: Brody is hooked on heroin and Saul has only nine days before he loses his ability to call the shots as the CIA's acting director. Plus: Who's to say Brody wants to have any part in Saul's game? That's where Carrie comes in... read more

postmortem: Brody's Back — but for how long?

"I was an amateur magician when I was a kid, and my favorite magic trick was always the one in which the magician convinces the audience that he's made a mistake," executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com.

And yet you lay down that final card, and you realize that the magician, the writers, have been one step ahead."

Those are Saul Berenson's words to his CIA colleague Dar Adal around the midpoint of Homeland's Season 3 premiere — and they are almost an understatement.

Picking up nearly two months after a car bomb nearly wiped out the entire CIA, Saul (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie (Claire Danes) and the rest of what's left of the agency are being scrutinized by a Senate Intelligence Committee led by Sen. Lockhart (Tracy Letts).

Homeland: 8 Spoilers We Learned About Season 3

Claire Danes, Damian Lewis

When Homeland returns to Showtime for its third season, there is likely to be one question on viewers minds: Where is Brody?

When viewers last tuned in, Brody (Damian Lewis) was on the run after having been framed (or was he?) for an attack that killed hundreds at a CIA memorial for the vice president. He was able to escape across the border, thanks to his lover/CIA handler Carrie (Claire Danes), and as such, Brody is notably absent from at least the first two episodes of Season 3.
