I’ve written a lot about Showtime’s Homeland for ScottFeinberg.com, as it’s one of the best dramas on TV.

From discussing the the drama’s incredible pacing to giving you reasons to watch, I’ve championed the series since its 2011 debut. Each week leaves me with my jaw on the floor in all of the best ways — except for last week’s chapter, “Broken Hearts.”

During this time, Nazir negotiated with his supposed follower Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) to get the serial code for Vice President William Walden’s (Jamey Sheridan) pacemaker.
