Shocking turn of events...
23 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, Homeland has had me intrigued for quite a while. Yes, I have had problems with how predictable some things are, and how obvious the plot moves even when it's incredible thrilling, but for the first time, Homeland has delivered an absolutely masterful episode, without flaws.

Homeland has finally shocked me... now, I will not declare what is and isn't, since now that I saw this, I know how cleverly the show might turn. The turn of events in the last 10 minutes really had me on edge. It gives Brody a different side to him. Saying that, I am never going to be 100% sure of something, so who knows where the show takes us on from here, but I didn't expect for these things to be sorted out this early, and in this manner. Excellent episode!
