Advertisements Whoa. This show is incredible - and w/no Breaking Bad or Mad Men on the air right now, easily the best drama on TV. Just when you thought things might be going a certain way, boom, they upend you. Before last night, I had pretty much figured that the finale was going to concentrate on stopping Tom Walker, and the Brody thing was going to be a long-con that lasted well into next season. Doesn't look that way now. I thought all 3 leads - Danes, Patinkin, and Lewis - were fantastic in this ep. This seemed liked Claire Danes' victory lap for her Best Actress Emmy. I can't imagine anyone beating her at this point. It's one thing to be play crazy - nearly every decent actress can do that - but playing crazy but smart at the same time while also showing the strain in trying to suppress the crazy? Magnificent. And Patinkin was just as good, in the opposite way. As Carrie got more and more out there, he got stiller and stiller, as if trying to absorb the crazy from her. You could see the pain in his eyes as he saw Carrie spiraling downward. I can't see any way that Saul is the mole now, and if it's revealed that way I'm going to be pissed (my money's on Estes). And Lewis was flat-out chilling as Brody switched effortlessly from involved dad to dispassionately discussing the effect the vest will have on severing his head cleanly from his body. My only beef with this ep is with the previews for the finale - they sure seemed like they gave an awful lot away.
