Storyline

While conscience-wresting Quinn works out his frustration in a bar fight, landing him in jail for a night, heartless Carrie spends only one day actually caring for her baby daughter before dumping Brody's kid back on her unamused sister. Jordan Harris's secret, being archive-buried for trying to expose the illegal exchange of secrets, allows Carrie to blackmail careerist director Lockhart into returning her to the field, now as Islamabad section chief, to investigate. Dar Adal suggests Saul should seize the scandal to bid for the director seat again, but he prefers to remain in private security and accepts an offer from Carrie to modernize her new Pakistani post. Med student Aayan Ibrahim hides chemicals with his girl friend and is abusively intimidated by Taliban supporters. Written by KGF Vissers

Dampened the Homeland premiere occasion
12 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Showtime incorrectly planned the "two-part" event because the second episode, "Trylon and Perisphere", was not nearly as potent or smartly crafted as "Drone Queen". In fact, it considerably dampened the "Homeland" premiere occasion. The invaluable Saul was put to no use and floated in limbo for most this episode, waiting to be better utilized in future episodes. Inconsistent character work and plotting afflicted the episode's narrative, including one instance where "Homeland" challenged a sensitive topic that not even the deplorable season three would have risked. (For those who have seen it, I am referring to the bathtub scene. Maybe the writers were thinking, "Let's just throw our great character in Carrie Mathison completely down the drain with the baby's life?") "Trylon and Perisphere" felt like an orphan from early season three and let down the adventure "Drone Queen" built in the firm premiere.

Grade: C-
