Homeland Premiere: Boss Breaks Down What Happened in That Bathtub

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 4 premiere of Homeland. Read at your own risk.]

Homeland's Carrie Mathison certainly won't be winning any Mother of the Year awards any time soon.

On the Showtime drama's two-hour season premiere, it became clear that Carrie (Claire Danes) had purposefully chosen a CIA posting in Kabul, Afghanistan that wouldn't allow her to bring along her new daughter, Frannie. Instead, the baby was being cared for by Carrie's sister and father stateside, whom Carrie occasionally checks in with via Skype.

7 Changes to Expect in Homeland's Rebooted Fourth Season

Bye bye, Brody.

Once the creative team behind Homeland (finally) decided to kill off Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) in the Season 3 finale, they realized they could pretty much take the hit Showtime drama anywhere they wanted.

"There's no question that we closed a big chapter of the show last season when we dispatched with Nicholas Brody, and there's no question that at the beginning of this year, we really sat down and realized that it was tabula rasa," co-creator and executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com....read more

Weekend TV: Homeland, Survivor's Remorse, Mulaney

If last season (and the last parts of the season before) left you wanting to run away from Showtime's Homeland, the good news is that it's safe to come back. The show may never again achieve the intensely suspenseful and emotional heights of year one, with its psychosexual tango between Carrie and the enigmatic war hero/possible terrorist tool Brody, and I'm still not convinced that basket-case analyst Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) should be posted anywhere hotter than Antarctica. But this Emmy-winning international spy thriller suddenly feels much more topical and urgent again in its fourth season, where the only remaining remnant of the Brody storyline is the infant daughter — a ginger baby, naturally (hauntingly Damian Lewis in aspect) — whom Carrie bore after witnessing the father's cruel fate.

Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)

Top Moments: American Horror Story Axes One of Its Own, and Mindy and Danny Finally Take Off

Our top moments of the week:

14. Dead Sexy Award: Boyd's story just keeps getting twist-ier on Justified. In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a... read more
