Storyline

It's 2011; Israel bombs five sites in Iran, and the CIA hears rumors of a retaliatory attack within the U.S. When a Lebanese woman offers intelligence but will only speak with Carrie, Estes and Saul are forced to bring her in from the cold for a couple days. (She lives with her sister and father, and she teaches English to immigrants). Once in Beirut, with a Canadian cover, an initial meeting goes wrong. Meanwhile, Brody, now a member of Congress, receives an assignment from a messenger of Abu Nazir. Things have come to a head with Brody's wife, as well, when their daughter has a problem at her new upper-crust, private high school. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

What a nice,exiting premiere
1 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm not going to spoil anything because i think its not a nice work to explain the story in a review especially for a TV series like Homeland.First season had exiting and surprising moments but i'm sure that this season is going to rock ,"The Smile" is one of the best premiere of this year and month TV Shows ,its exiting and at the end you can't hold your self until the next week like me (:d).The directing and script writing is nice and this show has a potential to have at least 5 or 6 seasons.Next episodes are going to be epic and more exiting than this nice,well directed episode .Don't lose this show whoever you are !
