Carrie hopes to be released given effective medication and family support, but sees both as sabotage. Paul Franklin's law firm however gets her released for a day, so they can offer her freedom and an end to the freezing of her assets (so she must crash with and steal from a friend) in exchange for 'consulting' their client, implied Iran, on the sixfold CIA-vengeance-killings, just as Saul hoped. Leo Carras sneaks out of the mental institution for a wild drive with enamored Dana, confiding about his kid brother's suicide, but Mike Faber finds out he has darker secrets. Meanwhile the Venezuelan money trace shows Iranian Revolutionay Guard secret service chief Majid has been stealing a fortune from government funds and laundering them trough a football (soccer) team.

User Reviews

Exciting and unpredictable
25 October 2013 | by calebyashSee all my reviews

The third episode of new season really was exciting. I didn't see the twist coming. It was quite unpredictable. However, the first two were bit slow and sloppy but this episode got Homeland on track. The acting was very much engaging especially that of Clarie Danes and Mandy Pantinkin. The suspense was very subtle and dexterously maintained in the first two episodes. I believe the writes deliberately made the former episodes bit slowly to hit the audience with the thrill and suspense in the third episode.

I will give 8 out of 10 for this episode and I can't wait to see what lies next in Homeland!For those who thought Homeland is out of Game, well it is Game ON now...Let's wait and see how this season plays on.
