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. Complicating matters further, the always unpredictable Carrie (Claire Danes) comes to Tehran to help set up an extraction plan for Brody.
Homeland: How does Brody figure into Saul's master plan?
But the real question still remains:
What is The Bear without his beard?
Mandy Patinkin appeared on Live! With Kelly and Michael Thursday sporting a surprisingly clean-shaven face. "I shaved it the minute I finished the last shot [of Season 3]," the Homeland star explained.
"I felt like I was taking off a Mickey Mouse mask. I had it for two years because I couldn't take it off because other things that were going on. I also felt about 20 years younger," he continued.

Breaking Bad leads the nominees for the Writers Guild of America awards, which were announced on Thursday. The AMC drama, which concluded its run in September, received four nominations, including one for Best Drama Series.
The Returned and The Bridge
When Sundance Channel acquired the French-language zombie series The Returned, network president Sarah Barnett was concerned about how viewers might react. Not about the subject matter — the show came with high critical acclaim, and the success of The Walking Dead proved that audiences could stomach undead antics.

Question: I've decided it's time to ask you how would you like to see Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang) leave Grey's Anatomy. This might come up more often as the season nears an end in May, but I can't stop thinking about it. While I love Cristina and aspire to be as fierce as she is, I think they should kill her off, but not in a mean way — in a way that could build a great emotional arc for Kevin McKidd (Owen). I think they should have one more romp in the sack where she gets pregnant and he convinces her to keep the baby this time, only to lose Cristina during the birth! I know I sound all evil genius right now, but I think that would give Owen more issues than he can handle and I think it will bring all those close to Cristina (especially Meredith) to a level of respecting Cristina's initial decision to never have kids. Just my thoughts. I think her exit will be flawless. Shonda Rhimes is a TV goddess and I'm sure will make us all proud. — Erica

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...
Sarita Choudhury, Mandy Patinkin
Homeland has dropped a number of twists this season, but one of its most recent could potentially strike acting CIA director Saul Berenson very close to home.
Just as Saul (Mandy Patinkin) seemed to be putting back together his marriage with Mira (Sarita Choudhury), the show threw us a curveball. After Mira broke things off with her former lover Alain Bernard (William Abadie), he ...
