While conscience-wresting Quinn works out his frustration in a bar fight, landing him in jail for a night, heartless Carrie spends only one day actually caring for her baby daughter before dumping Brody's kid back on her unamused sister. Jordan Harris's secret, being archive-buried for trying to expose the illegal exchange of secrets, allows Carrie to blackmail careerist director Lockhart into returning her to the field, now as Islamabad section chief, to investigate. Dar Adal suggests Saul should seize the scandal to bid for the director seat again, but he prefers to remain in private security and accepts an offer from Carrie to modernize her new Pakistani post. Med student Aayan Ibrahim hides chemicals with his girl friend and is abusively intimidated by Taliban supporters. Written by KGF Vissers

User Reviews

Danes is a terrific actress, but ...

... seriously? How can someone with as much emotional baggage as Carrie be working for the CIA? And as a station chief, no less! That just goes beyond believable. I am not a subscriber to Showtime but I recently downloaded all of the episodes out of curiosity. I really enjoyed the first two seasons, and some of the third season as well. But right now it looks like it is turning into a prime time soap opera with some occasional violence and intelligence work.

I was so impressed by Claire Danes's performances in the first seasons that I've continued to watch the series. But honestly, if she wasn't in the series any more I would stop watching.

My poor rating is for the content. Without Danes (who I honestly never heard of before I started watching "Homeland") I would rate it lower.
