Homeland postmortem: Show boss breaks down the "magic trick" of Season 3

OK, so that wasn't really the question in Season 2; it only felt that way because Brody (Damian Lewis) seemed like he was living on borrowed time ever since he opted not to blow himself up via suicide vest in the first season-ender. But going into Sunday's Season 3 finale — which picked up moments after Brody, working at the behest of the CIA, killed General Akbari inside the Iranian leader's secure compound — Brody's odds of surviving his latest "suicide mission" seemed quite long... read more

Shaun Toub. Claire Danes

The important pieces of Saul's plan finally seem to be in place on Homeland. But will the risky gambit actually work?

With Brody (Damian Lewis) now in Iran and in the custody of recently turned CIA asset Majid Javadi (Shaun Toub), the pair must now move into Tehran to attempt to assassinate Javadi's boss and therefore make it possible for Javadi to move into power.  According to Showtime, on Sunday's episode (9/8c), the mission is compromised when a ghost from Brody's past causes his commitment to the mission to falter.

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

The Weekend Playlist: Walking Dead Is Back, and So Is Homeland's Brody

Andrew Lincoln

It's raining zombies, quite literally, by the end of the first hour of The Walking Dead's fourth harrowing season (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC). And when it rains, it pours blood. Just how fans like it.

But it's in the pauses between the gruesome action, those eerie and unsettling silences, when we're reminded there's no rest for the living in a treacherous world where swarming walkers are constantly pressing against the prison-shelter gates, insatiable and relentless. In these quieter moments, Dead reinforces its claim as TV's greatest horror drama by making us care so desperately about the characters' humanity.
