Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Andrew Lockhart (credit only)


Quinn reluctantly accepts joining Carrie's Pakistan team to examine his theory that Sandy's lynching was orchestrated by a Pakistani intelligence officer, or as turns out their thug 'subcontractor' Farhad Ghazi. Now Ayaan is without prospect, he considers and accepts a proposal from Carrie, posing as Fara's London editing chief, to sell his family's story for a safe scholarship in London, which doesn't even exist. Following him, the team discovers his uncle, Taliban commander Haissam Haqqani, wasn't killed by the drone. The ambassador's husband, a politics professor, is blackmailed and laves Islamabad feigning a dream job. Saul calls markers on retired Pakistani military intelligence general Bunny Latif but the incumbent is impressed nor amused. Written by KGF Vissers

Grating Tension Is Back
25 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The area where "Homeland" never fails to bring quality showmanship is the technical areas. The cinematography of this season, this episode in particular, is chiller, which adds to the vital suspense "Homeland" needs to be in top form. The grating tension is very present in "Iron in the Fire", as well as the general plot elements operating to a profitable result. The show has been taking criticism for Carrie's development so far in season four. First with the unsavory baby-drowning "moment of weakness", and now with manipulating the impressionable, young Ian. As someone who denounced the horrid bathtub scene, I cannot say this is as ludicrous, but that does not mean this is going to drive the plot to the palace of acclaim the show once received. Can "Homeland" maintain its lauded character of Carrie Mathison without Brody? First impressions suggested yes, but each episode makes that initial review more unstable.

Grade: B
