Having completed his mission, it is up to Carrie to extract Brody without the support of the CIA who doubt Brody's action because they have no solid proof.

A great finale to season 3
24 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Brody is clearly not dead. When you hang a person they're supposed to drop, because its the fall that breaks their necks and kills them not the actual hanging itself. Many people have survived the type of hanging that Brody underwent ! Why not give Brody a definitive death like AB Nasser, when they dropped his body in the ocean you knew he was gone - so why not behead Brody instead ? Because obviously he's coming back next season ! If Brody really thought he was going to die why didn't he tell Carrie he loved her or to take care of their baby ? Why didn't he make his peace with Allah first - even Saddam Hussein did that ! You wait and see - season 4 and Brody will turn up at some point alive and well.
