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

Trivia

While walking through the woods, Carrie says she and her sister used to play Lewis & Clark, and specifies that she always wanted to be Lewis. Meriwether Lewis is presumed to have suffered from a bipolar disorder just like Carrie. See more »

Goofs

Immediately after being polygraphed, Brody asks if he passed and Carrie confidently says he did, "with flying colors." As any real CIA agent would know, polygraph results take weeks to calculate and assess. They aren't decided on the spot, and certainly not by an untrained observer. See more »

Aileen Morgan: For good?

One of the best episodes in TV history
31 January 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I am not writing a review about the episode, but more of a recap what I felt.

I have seen plenty of series and movies. And when I say plenty, I really do mean it. I consider myself as part of the "intelligent audience" whom can occasionally watch a "popcorn blockbuster" but what I am looking for is proper drama - motives and feelings.

I felt compelled to write a few words here, since this episode was just stunningly great. It has been years since I felt something similar. In case you are wondering that was the "original finale", Adama's court, of Battlestar Galactica season 2. Later on producers moved that to be an episode in the middle since they thought that it wouldn't be enough for the audience whom would look for that "popcorn action ending". My point being - the drama was stunning there as it was here.

If you enjoy proper drama like The Wire or Crash (TV) you will enjoy Homeland. That much is certain.

Thanks for creating this, dear production team. I actually felt it.
