Homeland on Showtime

Looks promising. Lots of good actors and a premise with lots of potential.

Did you see them killing the Oman and his wife?

A few surprises. Now it may get interesting.

Nice twist. I was wondering where the hell they were going with this.

With the Iranian they can prove that Brody wasn't the bomber.

I'd still like for Dana to successfully off herself. I've never understood where they're going with her story line and unless she winds up being the mastermind terrorist I think that they're wasting my time and testing patience.

Yeah that was crazy. And they did that over 4 episodes. Glad they spent time on that instead of it all happening in one episode.

Need to watch the episode again. Was on a melatonin pill while watching and didn't catch everything I think.

I thought she was going to try to sell Saul on the double-agent route. Didn't see him in on it...

I can't get past the damn Dana drama every damn show. She's getting way too much time on the show. WTF? Is this the producers daughter?

The Dana storyline aside, this has been a damn good season so far, and that's with minimal Brody sightings. Saul blasting the Senator in front of all the Washington big wigs made me laugh.

I'm liking this season, minus all the Dana crap. And I find the longer we go without Brody the less I care about him.

Maybe they are sending Dana off into the sunset.

Interesting. Now all the setup with Brody earlier makes sense. Although you'd think they wouldn't have waited so long to get back to him.

One minor gripe, which I always have with shows like this: some random guy is going to be able to sneak into the ****ing director of the CIA's house and plant anything? Just in and out the front door?

****ing ridiculous....

Otherwise, digging this season.

wasnt that the dude Saul's wife was sleeping with? I mean he's already been seen coming in and out of the house so why would this be any different?

Homeland producers dealing with fan backlash.

Homeland dropped quite a few big developments during Sunday's episode, the last of what showrunner Alex Gansa describes as the season's second movement.
Carrie (Claire Danes), entering her second trimester, is dealt a major setback -- and a bullet to the shoulder -- in her revived quest to prove Brody's (Damian Lewis) innocence. As for the world's most-wanted man, Saul (Mandy Patinkin) discovers him drug-addled and catatonic in the same Venezuelan cell where viewers last saw him five episodes ago.
PHOTOS: 'Homeland' Portraits of the Emmy-Winning Cast and Creators
Entering the final sweep of episodes before the Dec. 15 finale, Gansa chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about what's next for Homeland (a lot more Brody -- though the word is out on his family), how he's handling the criticism that seems to go hand-in-hand with the Showtime series these days and why this season actually has been the most carefully structured.
Youíve described this season as being broken into three movements. What can you say about the next one?
Well, this would be the end to the second movement, and I think itís really obvious what the last movement is about. I think it belongs to Nick Brody -- thatís the last sweep of episodes this season.
What did you want to accomplish with this second chapter of the season?
Once we realized that Saul and Carrie had a play to lure Javadi [Shaun Toub] out of Iran, and to turn him, this was really that play. It was how they brought him into the country, how they turned him, how they integrated him, how they sent them back and ultimately the tantalizing piece of information that he left with Carrie about Brodyís innocence.
Brody is in pretty rough shape. How long has he been locked up?
You know, thatís an open question, but I would say a couple of months at least.
Does his return mean there will be more from the Brody family?
Should I touch the third rail? I donít think so. [laughs] People can wait and see for themselves.
Q&A: Damian Lewis Talks Brody's 'Homeland' Return, Rock Bottom and TV Fatherhood
Speaking of the third rail, when did you make the decision to have Carrie be pregnant?
From the very get-go of the season. We all knew that she was pregnant when we sat down at the beginning of the year. We knew that she became pregnant as a result of their time together at the lake -- that last time. And our task became ďWhatís the least melodramatic way to reveal it? Whatís the way that feels honest and true to her character?Ē
Did you think it would be such a divisive move?
Itís so funny to read peopleís responses: ďItís a soap operaÖ Itís another twist.Ē For us, itís neither. A twist is something that happens when a story is going one way and youíre thinking one way but something happens that completely turns it on its head. Carrieís pregnancy is a plot development. Hopefully, it will be handled in a way that isnít melodramatic and isnít a soap opera. I think we started that out by the fact that she opens that drawer, and in true bipolar fashion, has been testing herself every couple of days for the last three months. She just wants to come up negative once, so she doesnít have to be pregnant.
How far ahead did you plan how the pregnancy will play out?
Hereís the other funny thing. Itís impossible to be objective about the work -- weíre in the middle of it still, and we canít tell -- but this season, probably more than the first and the second, has been carefully plotted out from the beginning. We all knew where the show was going to begin this year and where the show was going to end this year. From the very minute when we decided the story in early March. Everything that has happened this season so far has been in a very large degree much more meticulously planned than the first and second seasons. To hear that weíre wandering in the woods is just hysterical to us. This is the season weíve been really conscious and diligent about plotting every little piece carefully. One of those pieces is Carrieís pregnancy, and it becomes very important in this last sweep of episodes.
Do you ever wish people would kind of chill out and wait to see the full season before criticizing?
That would be so great Ė but it appears impossible. That said, itís great that people are so passionate about the show, and itís great that people are talking about it. Itís great weíre getting the best numbers weíve ever had. All that accrues to the benefits of Homeland. Weíre just working as hard as we can to make it as compelling, entertain and be true to the characters as we can. Thatís what weíre doing, and itís for other people to judge.
Q&A: 'Homeland' Showrunner Alex Gansa on the Big Reveal in 'Game On'
How much urgency is there right now, given the expiration date on Saulís tenure as CIA director?
Thatís the clock that weíve set for ourselves. Senator Lockhartís [Tracy Letts] confirmation hearings are coming up, and heís a shoo-in to be confirmed. He will shortly become the director of central intelligence. Saul knows, because of their huge philosophical divide about the future of the agency, that he has to get this operation up and running before Lockhart comes in. Otherwise, heíll put the brakes on the whole thing for him. The fact that Brody is in such bad shape is a huge setback for him.
Saul has known a lot more than weíve thought all season. How long has he known Brody was in Caracas?
Itís safe to say that El Nino [Manny Pťrez], seeing Brodyís decrepit shape and that he might die any day now, that it might be worth collecting the reward before that happens. Certainly, Saul knew about Brodyís situation down in Venezuela before he talked to Javadi about Brodyís innocence or guilt.
Dar Adalís [F. Murray Abraham] participation in the con has been something of a surprise. How loyal is he to Saul right now?
My personal theory about it is that Dar Adal was on the fence and then heard what Carrie and Saul had been up to and understood the value of placing Javadi as a CIA asset inside Iran. I think he was so taken by the boldness of that idea, thatís what swayed him to Saulís side. Whether heís loyal to Saul, Lockhart, the agency or the idea of intelligence is a question the audience should decide for themselves. In that moment, when he had that opportunity to let Lockhart out of the conference room but sides with Saul, my own interpretation is that he sides with Saulís operational genius.
How quickly will we know what's really going on with Miraís (Sarita Choudhury) fling, Alan (William Abadie)?
The question will be answered in the next episode. Youíll know in nine exactly who he is.
Carrie had to know Quinn (Rupert Friend) was going to shoot her -- what was motivating her to press on in that moment?
The character of Carrie Mathison is an impulsive one. And sometimes that impulsiveness takes over. I think sheís sitting in that van, and all of a sudden understanding that this is the person who could exonerate Brody once and for all. The actual bomber, the face of the murderer Ö you parade that in front of the public, and all of a sudden the people start questioning if Brody had anything to do with it. When it looks like that is going to be taken away from her, I think her emotions come into play. Sheís carrying Brodyís child, and it completely consumes her. She has to get out and stop it from happening -- to the exclusion of all else. Itís that impulsive nature that takes over. If she had time to think about it, sheíd probably say, ďWait a minute, thatís not a good idea.Ē But thatís not Carrie Mathison.
