Peter Quinn: Carrie, I guess I'm done. And we never happened. I'm not one for words but they're coming now. I don't believe in fate, or destiny, or horoscopes, but I can't say I'm surprised things turned out this way. I always felt there was something, kind of, pulling me back to darkness.

Good ending, but not nearly as bombastic as it promised to be
21 December 2015 | by (São Paulo) – See all my reviews

The ending of Homeland's season 5 was a good one. Definitely a million times better than the depressing and nonsense season 4 finale. However, it doesn't keep with the immense amount of tension which the spectacular episode 11 had.

It would be fair to even compare these last chapters to those of season 1 if only this finale were such as bombastic as season's 1. Instead, it is a much lighter episode, one that, however, does give resolution to the unfinished stories that emerged on this season successfully, which is basically what an ending should do.

I'm looking forward to the next season mainly to see how this drama from the last scene is going to develop. With luck, maybe it's going to end up the way I believe fans are expecting for a long time. Maybe it is the destiny indeed.
