6.6 The Return

During the past five episodes of Homeland, I’ve been enjoying both the series’ premature expectation of Hillary Clinton being the 45th President of the United States, as well as its likely unexpected prescience in predicting a new Potus at war with her intelligence communities. However, as the smoke clears from the fictional terrorist attack in last week’s Homeland, we are clearly entering a true alternative realm of events far removed from real-life Us politics.

This is actually a huge asset to Homeland, because for the first time since Brody died in season 3, I feel like the producers have a »

6.5 Casus Belli

Well that escalated quickly, didn’t it? Last week, the world of Homeland crumbled before a vision of terror that’s haunted the dreams of Americans for going on 20 years. In that amount of time since Sept. 11, 2001, the anxiety of another devastating terrorist attack occurring in the heart of American society has faded more to the recess of American life, but Homeland makes a convincing argument for what would happen if we awakened one morning to the sight of smoke plumes once more drifting across the Manhattan skyline.

… and it would not be good.

Thus Homeland delivers a high stakes episode that completely upends everything from the past four episodes, if not even the past several seasons. »

‘Homeland’ Recap: ‘A Huge Misunderstanding’ as Fallout Begins in Episode 5, ‘Casus Belli’

19 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not seen the Feb. 19 episode of “Homeland,” “Casus Belli.”

After last week’s explosive ending, this episode sets lays another few miles of twisty-turning track for the conspiracy that has been unfolding from across the street from Carrie’s Brooklyn townhouse.

The title of the episode, “Casus Belli,” refers to a provocation that starts a war — the assassination of the Archduke, as it were. What we see this week is the fallout of our key constituencies turning on a dime onto a war footing, no one more so than the deeply traumatized Peter Quinn.

President-elect Keane is whisked away from her hotel and at least temporarily disarmed — from her phone, her staff, even her ability to watch TV — as the national security industrial complex fires up all of its lockdown protocols

But the most remarkable aspect of this episode — written by Chip Johannessen and directed by Alex Graves — is »

Homeland Recap: Rock Beats Scissors, But Gun Beats Rock

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Homeland recap here.

You’d think last week’s shocking van explosion would be Carrie’s main priority this week on Homeland. But instead, another ticking time bomb took precedence in an intense nail-biter of an episode.

During a news alert about Sekou’s van exploding — two people were killed, including Sekou, with six more injured — Quinn notices that a fragment of Sekou’s blasted van says “Medina Medley.” (Remember, he saw Black-Hatted Guy from across the street enter a parking lot full of Medina Medley vans.) Reda calls Carrie and tells »

Homeland Season 6 Episode 5 Review: “Casus Belli”

19 February 2017 6:53 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Following the horrible explosion in New York City, which resulted in Saiku’s death in last week’s episode of Homeland, I expected the series to thoroughly deal with the fallout of the incident in tonight’s all-new hour. However, I would have never expected to see these consequences unfold in the way that they do in “Casus Belli,” which is easily the most tense and exciting episode we’ve seen in Homeland Season 6, and it’s also an installment that somewhat blends the new, more pulpy version of the show with the smaller, more intimate version of it from its first two seasons. Of course, much
