    From the conversation they had, it was clear that Carrie knew damn well that she had to be back, and that she didn't come anyway, forcing Sis to cancel a couple of patients.

    At least that's what Sis accused her of, and she certainly didn't deny it...

    I think that's how they meant it to come off, but the conversation didn't directly indicate that. The way it was written led both my wife and I to interpret it as I wrote it, with her only saying that Carrie said she'd be back without any indication that Carrie know about or had actually agreed to take care of things in the afternoon.

    Only one type had completely legible labels.

    A-xeron

    It seems to be an Eli Lilly drug containing testosterone. But the reference I found with google said it was a 2% topical solution, whereas this was clearly labeled (and packaged) for injection. So I don't know what to make of that.

    One other drug had the last part of the label legible: "-non XT".

    So instead of being a bio-terrorist, maybe he makes a few extra bucks by selling the vials to middle-aged guys with low T. Med school is expensive, you know.

    If the guy in the basement actually had proof that could convict Lockhart of treason, he'd probably be in the ground instead of the basement. Maybe Carrie's blackmail worked because he knows she's crazy and you can't tell what she'd do.

    Saul needs to dump his wife. Her turn? She wasn't there for him when it was his turn. :(

    I assume that was completely intentional. If nothing else, Claire Danes has children, so I assume she would know infants don't go in the front seat and how to bath a baby.

    Let us not forget that the head of intelligence in Iran is the murderer that Saul sprung and traded Brody to put in place. Did we ever see Carrie coming to grips that Saul betrayed her and Brody?

    Or he is starting the Pakistani version of BALCO or Biogenesis. Maybe he's selling PED's to cricket players :)

    I assume the rest of the season will be about finding out who was the Islamabad chief's asset, and exposing him as the guy that told the Americans to bomb a wedding; IOW as the guy really responsible for killing those people.

    The idea that video of a wedding might exist escaping the brightest intelligence minds in the United States is kind of far fetched.

    The Pakistani med student reminds me of Beyrooz Araz from 24.

    That bathtub scene was like, whoa, they couldn't really go there, could they? I mean, Carrie's not even supposed to be a villain, and that might have been the worst thing any TV character has ever done had they gone through with it.

    This "the US denies we bombed a wedding" thing really happened.

    Course, we in the US only heard the accusation then off the latest on KimYe.

    Since becoming a parent I cannot stand to watch children get hurt in TV or movies. I think if they would have followed through with that scene I would have shut the TV off and never watched Homeland again.

    i have the same sentiments. i fast forwarded thru all scenes with the baby, because you knew she would hurt the baby at some point. even if it is an ugly baby.

    Yes, the way his mother would say his name is what makes me remember it. That, and the way a radio show I listened to at the time would make fun of her voice.

    Behrooooooz. Bring me a carton of Marlboro Reds and a cinnamon stick.

    I remember almost nothing else about any single year storyline on that show.

    I thought it might be the same actor. It's not.

    I'm liking this season so far. It's not, and probably can never be, as intense as Season 1, but it's now become a well done espionage, spy drama. I'm assuming there will be some good twists and turns and Carrie's character (as long as she doesn't become a caricature of herself) makes the show even more edgy. There's lots more worse stuff on TV.

    After one week, you can predict the season? You're a better prognosticator than Carrie! And Brody should have died at the end of season one, as originally planned.

    It was a CIA drone mission, so the CIA CoS has the final word. I have no idea if the Air Force is involved in CIA missions (and if I did, I couldn't tell you:D), but we can assume the CIA controls their own ops.

    I knew they weren't gonna go there, and you knew they weren't gonna go there, but still... it *was* spooky watching her even contemplate it. If they were trying to show us how far she would go to get back in the field, it worked.

    Nothing may ever match the intensity of the first season, but it's still one of the best written, best acted shows on TV.

    Great to read a positive review! Alan Sepinwall, who I follow and really enjoy, couldn't get over the bathtub scene and won't be reviewing the show this season. :confused: I thought the double episode was a terrific start to what I hope is a great season. Carrie is back on her game. Definitely not mother of the year, but innately realistic to the character. Quinn and his ptsd are fascinating. Loved the storyline with the apartment manager (though I'm really wondering which Homeland creative has a thing about readheads...)
