Dana Brody, it’s time to take off your crown as Homeland’s most hated character and give it to the sniveling and meek and rage inspiring Dennis Boyd. Thanks to Dennis’s fine work stealing secrets and trading information with I.S.I double agent Tasneem (Nimrat Kaur), Homeland’s ninth episode of series four left us all wondering who survived the R.P.G attack on the convoy bringing Saul back to the C.I.A headquarters.
Carrie (Claire Danes), Redmond (Michael O’Keefe) and Saul (Mandy Patinkin) were all in the convoy attacked by the blasts while Quinn (Rupert Friend), Ambassador Martha Boyd (Laila Robins) and secret trading husband Denis were all inside the C.I.A – which had just been breached by Haqqini (Numan Acar) and his men….All thanks to Denis.
So, are Carrie, Saul and Redmond alive? Did they survive the attack? The New York Daily News published some photos from the filming showing a bloodied Carrie and Saul surrounded by bomb damaged black vans.
In both pictures (published Nov 3rd) Carrie and Saul are wounded though there is no sign of Redmond who was travelling with the two at the time of the attack.
The official synopsis for the episode: “The security breach at the Embassy has far reaching consequences.”
Homeland continues Sunday December 7th on Showtime (USA) and Monday Dec 8th on Network 10 (AUS)
Showtime has just dropped the the first look trailer for Homeland’s eagerly awaited fourth season and judging by the promo, it looks like things are starting to get back to the Homeland we knew and loved.
Well sort of.
Let’s not forget now that shocking season three finale which saw Brody (Damian Lewis) hanged while Carrie (Claire Danes) looked on in horror, unable to save the man she loves, so obviously, there’ll be no Brody this time round!
Check out the trailer below.
As you can see, Carrie is back at work with the CIA but you’re also probably wondering about her being pregnant and all right?
Showrunner Alex Gansa revealed to Entertainment Weeklyrecently that Season 4 picks up six months after we left off. Carrie has had the baby, but they’d “rather not give away where the kid is, but … one of the reasons [Carrie has] found herself in Afghanistan and Pakistan is it’s a place where you’re disallowed from bringing a dependent.”
One can only assume Carrie’s sister may have taken to looking after the baby while Carrie is off in Afghanistan doing what she does best.
Are you excited about Homeland’s return? Will it be the same without Brody and his relationship with Carrie? Sound off in the comments below!
Homeland Season 4 premieres October 5 on Showtime with Channel 10 expected to fast-track shortly thereafter!
