    I can't believe they killed him, but I can't see where his character would have gone from there.

    It's time for a Homeland reboot. Next year could be interesting, many different paths they could take.

    Agreed. Enough with the Brody clan. Time to move on. I would like to see Saul back at the CIA or involved in the show, but it's Mandy Pantikin's habit to bail from excellent shows at this point, so if he follows the same pattern, we're stuck with Dar Adal who isn't so bad, but he's no Saul. Glad to see Quinn still in the game. I suspect he and Carrie will hook up at some point. Two Secret Agents and a Baby. Sounds like a bad sit-com. :)

    This is a thread for the season finale. Unfortunate the thread title doesn't say ** SPOILERS **, but that should be implied in a thread for the episode.

    Is Saul a moron? He needs to stay away from that wife of his.

    Very true that Patinkin usually exits TV series at this point, but they did give him an out. He'll be in New York, no longer in the CIA, with Carrie being in Istanbul.

    I think an undercurrent of the first season, and to some part, the second season, was the relationship between Saul and Carrie. But that was never really explored. I'd love to see some real backstory on that in the next season as to what they really went through in the past.

    That's not how you hang a man. You're supposed to snap his neck.

    I was waiting for Carrie to ring Jess Brody's doorbell and give her the baby.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they end the series right there. No Saul. No Nick.
    Carrie alone isn't going to cut it and they'll have to bring in a bunch of new characters, even if Quinn goes with her.
    Where are they going to dig up another is he/isn't he conflict.

    The wife and I surmise Carrie will hire Saul to be part of her team assuming he stays around. The director did say she could pick her own team and that look at the end made me wonder.

    Almost in...
    Is it just me, but did this episode almost seem like a series finale rather than a season finale?

    It does but I thought it had been renewed for season 4.

    Carrie does seem strangely calm though. I thought she would be angrier.

    It has.
    For a trained field agent, she's always sucked at concealing her emotions. Maybe during "four months later" she finally got the memo and took the refresher course. :D

    Whether this was a series finale or not, the quality of the show has deteriorated to the point where my season pass is now cancelled.

    I felt the last 3 or 4 episodes "redeemed" itself almost to S1 levels, after the crappy second season and weak first half of the third season. Enough to see what happens next. But if S4 gets crappy again, I can totally see this turning into a "Dexter" where there's one big bad guy each season with little sub plots to keep it going for an hour. That would be bad.

    I think you want to snap the neck if you want them to die quick. I think they wanted Brody to suffer.

    Why?

    I was happy to see them together. Of course, that's either Saul's send off or the setup for "look how happy he his, now we take it all away again".
