To Quinn's disgust, Carrie shamelessly seduces innocent virgin Aayan Ibrahim into bed to win his trust. Saul tails criminal ICI-henchman Farhad Ghazi at the airport, but ends up his captive without any CIA staff noticing. Quinn and Fara's stakeout meanwhile yields the imam who accompanied Ayaan's most-wanted uncle. Ambassador Boyd's husband Dennis finds her neither pleased nor surprised when he announces he's staying, indeed having missed out on an academic new chance, but does well as ICI spy.

Great show, love every minute of it
29 October 2014 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Homeland" About a Boy is another great episode in very intriguing season 4. I was waiting for this season so badly after the breathtaking season 3, and it didn't disappoint me to say the least. Everything so far works and clicks in this season very well. Acting is top notch, writing is superb - events are believable, not overdone, overblown or over twisted - the pacing is great. "Homeland" isn't action / superheros show, it's intelligent show, and as i said very well paced - you won't going to have climaxes in every episode, each episode here is like one piece of puzzle, which will come in full view at the end of a season - it didn't disappoint me in last 3 years, and watching episode after episode this year i'm absolutely sure, it won't disappoint this year.

Overall, if you are looking for smart, excellently paced drama about real down to earth and on the same time very interesting events - "Homeland" will deliver goods.
