Homeland Q&A
29 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Last week when Carrie blew the lid on the investigation into Brody's terrorist attempt he was taken away by backup while she finally got to prove she was right. Brody was taken away to an interview room with his feet chained to the floor. David is called in so they decide what they are going to do in their short time they have Brody. They tell Carrie to stay with Peter interviewing Brody. When the interrogation starts Brody does not want to play along as he keeps lying. Peter brings up Abu Nazir's son and he has no memory of it he says. When Brody's lies build Peter shows him his confession video where he admitted to everything. While on the way to school Chris wonders if his parents are getting divorced and Jessica has to turn down the questions. Dana meets with Finn and tells him that she has broken up with Xander. David over hears a conversation with a close worker of Brody and tells him that he is helping the CIA. Jessica is still trying to ring Brody but no answer. Peter then goes to talk to Brody again and this time he tells the truth about Abu Nazir's son but still lies about the bomb vest. Peter then brings up Jessica and that he might show the video to her. Peter then pulls out a knife on him to try get him to talk. Forces are then called in to get Peter away from actually hurting Brody. It's then Carrie's turn to take over. Jessica visits Brody's hotel room and still no sign of him as she looks at the empty room. Jessica then calls Brody's right hand man who calls David to find out where Brody is for her. Carrie while talking to Brody makes it more personal as she will not hurt him physically but with words about what he did to her. She asks him if he ever felt for her but he cannot answer just trying to apologize to her. It turns out Peter stabbed Brody just to get kind Carrie involved. When she gives him water she turns off the cameras giving them some privacy. When they are alone she takes off his handcuffs to give some more room. Brody may be lying about the vest but she can see through his act that he is buried in lies. The two are almost in tears as they talk about love and lying where she says her truth is to marry Brody. He still lies about the vest so she brings in Waldon. Carrie then brings up Dana's call saying it was what kept her from blowing up the bomb vest. Carrie try's her hardest even saying she loved him but still he says nothing about Abu Nazirs plan. He may not know anything about the plan he says there is a plan. He also tells her about who he got the best from, Roya Hammad is his contact and all the people working close with Nazir that he knows of. Saul then comes into the room to tell him to call his wife about how he will be home. While trying to get Brody to move he is unable to walk out of his chair. Carrie then tells Brody he can either face prison time or go undercover and find out Nazir's plan. Saul and Peter clear the wall only leaving a picture of Roya as she is Brody's contact with Nazir. While on her date with Finn they drive very fast and hit someone with they car, but instead of looking for help they drive away. The Carrie/Brody relationship is back on as a cover up for their new plan. Brody returns home and tells Jessica that he is know working for the CIA. Family reunion and everyone seems happy except Dana who seems a bit off. Carrie arrives home happy that she finally has cracked Brody and now the CIA might be able to find out Nazir's plan. Lewis & Danes know each other so well and their acting proves that for example when the were both in tears it was very effecting.

EPISODE GRADE: A (MVP: Claire Danes)
