In a finale called “The Choice,” Homeland avoided making its toughest one. But Carrie also had a decision to make, and chose well.
A major storyline ends mundanely, for once without any shocker twist. But can Homeland find its way out of its own narrative labyrinth?
In which Homeland gets its pulse racing dangerously fast, but still shows it can deliver the character scenes that set it apart from other spy thrillers.
The hunt for a mole was a staple of Homeland’s predecessor 24. “Two Hats” put that storyline front and center—but ended up taking it in a very different direction.
Brody finds himself spirited away under surprising circumstances. But man, could he use a vacation.
Each subplot in “The Clearing” is about a relationship whose partners have private motivations—whether they want something from the other, or just want to escape.
The overarching theme of the episode was that, while there may be a new balance of power among the characters, there may not be enough trust for it to work.
Carrie and the CIA break Brody down to remake him, and in the process, Homeland makes itself into potentially quite a different, and exciting, series.
Homeland’s season two has not been stingy with the forward motion and plot developments, and last night, it dropped a game-changer.
