Storyline

After the explosion of Sekou's delivery van, the press turns on the president-elect who warned against 'overreacting' as if this were an second 9/11 and blames her for cowardly evacuation, actually imposed by Dar's team while he keeps her isolated and confers with Saul, who reports the Iranian deal-breaking may well be staged, plausibly by Mossad. Agent Thoms not only joins the blame game to shred responsibility but convinced Carrie the FBI recording used to free Sekou was not from him after her blackmail but was delivered sneakily by a manipulative third party. Ignoring Quinn's warning their home is watched, Carrie asked him to babysit daughter Frannie, who adores him, unaware the press would soon trace them down and lay siege to the house, which also becomes a vandalism target. Peter puts up a one-man defense, grabs an invading reporter, even fights back an entire ESU which invaded the 'kidnap site' without wounding anyone. Written by KGF Vissers

"Homeland" Under Siege
21 February 2017 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

So finally season 6 of "Homeland" has exploded in "Casus Belli", fifth episode of the season. We got suspense like nothing since the amazing "There's Something Else Going On" episode back in season 4, tons of mystery (like always), great craftsmanship, script, acting and an ending wishing that the next Sunday would come ASAP. There are more questions then answer looking at the main plot of season 6 so far, and i got one very crazy theory of where it is going - it involves "Madame President", her plans of "renewing" the whole CIA in general and those out there who don't want these change to come (CIA) - but it's just a theory, lets see what happens.

Overall, "Casus Belli" was a 43 min. roller coaster from start till finish. Great suspense, terrific pacing and storytelling has reminded me once again of why "Homeland" is a national treasure of small screen market.
