Question: I've been a fan of Homeland since before the pilot even came out. I don't live a day without at least thinking about Homeland once. Even last week's episode, which was heavily criticized, coerced me to suspend my disbelief on some dangling plot devices due primarily to the deliciously long-awaited meeting of Carrie and her mortal enemy Abu Nazir. And yet, while this season has largely been about Brody's allegiances and double missions, the series for me has always been about Carrie Mathison and Claire Danes. Her character was developed in Season 1...

No one can argue that Homeland is dragging things out this season.
First, Brody's suicide tape ended up in the hands of Saul (Mandy Patinkin) in Beirut. Then, rather than waste a couple episodes deciding what to do with the tape, Saul showed it to Carrie (Claire Danes) as soon as he could. Carrie then took the baton and, instead of flirt-interrogating Brody (Damian Lewis) for several days/weeks, she promptly blew the mission and had him arrested. So why stop now?

In a scene for an upcoming episode of Showtime's Emmy-winning hit Homeland, the bipolar former C.I.A. agent — played by the mesmerizing Claire Danes — is gripping the wheel with such ferocious intensity, you'd think she's doing 120 even though the car is parked. In the passenger seat is...

Well we certainly weren't expecting that.
Homeland continued its second season with an episode that focused mostly on the attempted killing of terrorist Abu Nazir (Navid Negahban) as both disgraced CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and Marine-turned-U.S. Congressman — and Nazir disciple — Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) watched and listened from their respective corners of the world. For Carrie, the operation was a test to see if Carrie and her informant was still viable. For Brody, who watched the scene play out alongside Vice President Walden (Jamey Sheridan), it was an exercise in loyalty, as Brody quickly and secretly text-messaged Nazir a coded warning just before the bullets began to fly.
