  1. Looks like we’re some distance apart on this one; I thought it was a bit static. Carrie takes the whole episode to confirm something she already knew (OK, I’ll give you the bit about medication, but hardly a gamechanger). The Professor takes some photos. Quinn and Fara almost follow someone, then don’t. The only huge development – and it was a startling one – was Saul being abducted, but even that was after some well-padded scenes of wandering round an airport. It might all pay off somewhere down the line, but there’s been a lot of waiting for Homeland to deliver over the past two seasons.

    • I know what you mean, Jed. That’s me being the eternal optimist! The show has yet to deliver fully, but there was enough promise here that I can finally get a sense of the new direction the writers seem to want to go in. Over to them now to deliver on it.
