There are very few things in Homeland, with its endless twists and reversals,  that are irrefutably true, but this comment from Saul to Carrie in the season 2 finale is one of them: “You are the smartest and the dumbest fucking person I’ve ever known.”  Sometimes you can say the same thing about the show.

The best news is that Brody did not die, which should not surprise anyone who knows the value of an Emmy-winning actor to a hit series. Damian Lewis is amazing, and by now that crazy-smart Carrie (Claire Danes) and dashing can-we-trust-him-or-not Brody are as swoony-romantic as if they were in The English Patient. But if saving him was a no-brainer, the reasoning in the plot . . . very dumb. We’re meant »
