Storyline

Blackmailed, the director had to give Carrie the post of Islamabad station chief, passing-over John Redmond, hence a near-hostile deputy. Peter Quinn is depressive, fleeing in alcohol and the chubby arms of his doting landlady, resisting therapy and Dar Adal, but his endless reviewing the footage of Sandy's lynching yields a distressing new theory. The ambassador to Pakistan ordered a lock-down, which Carrie shamelessly circumvents, dragging unamused security staff along. Saul gets a far from warm welcome, yet helps overturning the lock-down, being the ambassador's ex-fiancé. Aayan still shivers after abusive Taliban intimidation, so he refuses sell his drone-decimated family's story to CIA novice Fara Sherazi, who poses as a London-based reporter. Ayaan finds his medicine stash trashed by his girl friend's father, who even falsely reported him as a thief to see him expelled as med student. Written by KGF Vissers

Lifeless and Uneventful
18 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Homeland" is under reconstruction, we get it, but we do not need to feel like we are at construction site, stultified and uninterested. If "Shalwar Kameez" is any indication, "Homeland" is tired and decaying, which sends a mixed message to the statements made by the pounding premiering episode "Drone Queen". On the character front, "Homeland is not hitting its target as accurately as usual. Quinn, who has surfaced to fill Brody's masculine shoes, is being written with varying character development. The Carrie and Sal relationship strikes me as frail, and we know from the past seasons the actors are magnetic together. Having seen this a week ago, the plot was so dull that I could not tell you much about it. A loss of urgency and suspense was present here, most noted during the scene where Carrie escapes from being watched. This scene was made me reflect a similar scene from the season 2 premiere, how gripping that was, and by contrast, how ineffective this scene played in "Shalwar Kameez". Lifeless directing and an uneventful narrative made for a latent night in "Homeland".

Grade: C
