Brody and Carrie spend a weekend of sex and relaxation in her wood cabin, but he soon realizes she's spying on him and insists on truth time, ending up in a bitter break-up, just when new information changes everything. Saul decides to make the long drive from Mexico, where he arrest her, all the way to Virginia with Raquem's surviving white American lover Aileen to talk into her, and indeed she seems prepared to cooperate for a deal. Back home, Mike and Jessica want to be together again. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Saul Berenson: [transporting Aileen back to Virginia from Mexico] I'm looking forward to the drive, actually. I've had some upheaval at home. Could use some peace, quiet. You're obliging me with that, so thank you.

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!
