Carrie Mathison: [Saul and Estes question the validity of an asset's intel] It's not lost on me why people don't trust my judgment. Why you didn't even want me here.

Season-finale Quality

I haven't written a review on Imdb before but this episode is too good to not talk about. I'll try to avoid spoiling anything. I loved season one - it did have some episodes that were decent but not terribly exciting. But then there were episodes where crazy twists happened with well-written delivery. This episode is easily my favorite so far (as I'm just starting this series) since practically every scene is delivered with amazing intensity and realism. If you've watched the series up to this point, you'll love this episode, makes any "meh" homeland episodes worth it.
