Homeland Episode 10: Brody Makes His Decision
Homeland reintroduced good old Dick Johnson, whose name brought Jessica to fits of giggles last week, now brought Brody one step closer to carrying out a terrorist act against the United States. Vice President Walden paid an overly anxious Brody a visit and asked him to run for Johnson’s seat.
When Brody wanted to see Carrie, I had hopes that maybe he would want to share with the CIA what plans Nazir has for the United States. Yes, I am that naive. Instead he took the opportunity to ensure there’s nochance the media can find out about them. Carrie sure as hell isn't going to tell anybody in the CIA,and she ensures him Jessica will never know. Since he knows fully well she already knows he and Carrie had sex, what does that mean? He said goodbye to Carrie, and she said good night. »

Written by Chip Johannessen
Directed by Tucker Gates
Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on Showtime
Homeland has dabbled in thematically structured episodes already, but “Achilles Heel” took that to another level and by doing so brought to mind a lot of what made the best episodes of the failed AMC show, Rubicon, so great. You take a theme and you let it seep into all the ongoing storylines, and by doing so you add extra weight and character even when not much is actually happening story-wise. Except that in this case, a lot did happen outside of the central theme of love in marriage.
The episode worked in that theme on multiple fronts in what was actually something of a Carrie-light episode. Brody and Jessica have begun to clear the air and air starting to resemble a happily married couple. They get invited to »
