Storyline

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. Written by KGF Vissers

Homeland has lost it completely!
27 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Being a Pakistani youth myself, I was a die hard fan of Homeland solely because of its well written and multi-layered script,authenticity (to some extent) and good acting until NOW. Season 4 has disappointed me to its every bit as it could. This episode is again about the delusional Carey Mathinson trying to "recruit" her dumb asset while ferocious ISI agents continue to spy on her and her team. I mean, come on! The writers clearly don't know what they are trying to show here rather than the same old bizarre story line from a crappy spy movie! The roles of the supporting actors have gone unimportant, boring and predictable. I urge you to please not waste your time watching this!
