Last year, Claire Danes was pregnant in real life and played a character who was not pregnant.
This year, Claire Danes is not pregnant in real life and is playing a character who is pregnant.

What range that woman has.

I didn't realize she was pregnant last year. Maybe they taped this season then hence the pregnant terror baby plotline?

Interestingly enough, it sounds like Jared Leto actually went on to become a real actor:  http://www.advocate.com/commentary/2013/11/14/op-ed-jared-leto-and-t- w ord

No. Well, she does, but she doesn't show anything.

I like Claire Danes, but this season of Homeland was so interesting that I decided to stop watching it completely.

the last 2 seasons have felt like the last third of Return of the King where it consists of nothing but tying up loose ends.

The dude comes across as a very pompous asshole though. He was on Fresh Air recently and the interview was just horrific. I mean don't get me wrong, Terry Gross can be something annoying at times but Jared was just annoying as all fark out during the entire interview.

No, he acts on the side. His real passion is whatever 30 Seconds to Mars spews out annually.

The latest episode was the best one of the season, so far. Coincidentally, there were no characters named Brody in it.

I've been saying since the end of the first season, they should have ended it at 1 season or at least not chickened out because they liked the actor.  The biggest constraint on modern TV is keeping characters alive because they are played by actors who have won awards or are popular.

I wish she was more like her character too.  Then I might actually have a shot.

Killing off Brody would have been awesome, even if they didn't want to make it some crazy over the top thing, have the vest accidentally go off when he was outside the building or something. Season 2 was for the most part ridiculous. I mean if I lived in a world where terrorists were as competent as Abu Nazir  (with moles in the US house of representatives, the Media and probably the CIA, covert tactical teams and the ability to sneak their leader in the the US undetected), I would legitimately be freaked out.

The Television Without Pity recap got it right:

Dar Adal: "No homo, but..."
Saul: "It's cool. I'd blow myself right now, if I could get the angle right."

ha, it took me about midway through the episode to really notice that.

though I think last episode was the best so far, it still feels like the show's not really going anywhere or it's taking a really long and overly difficult route to get somewhere.

Agreed, last episode was the best of the season so far. No Brody and his boring family. Hope the main plot really picks up. It's taking them 3 episodes just to turn an agent. And the idea that the best of the best at the CIA could barely handle Mayberry police is absurd. Just stick to good espionage stuff!

I think what you're seeing is the killing off Brody without talking about him. This really has been the Season of Saul. The Carrie plot was really the Saul plot.

Brody's family just needed to have that closure. If not, we'd have people screaming "WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WHINY GIRL AND HOT NAKED CHICK?! ALSO BOOOBS!"

The last 3 episodes have gotten far better than the first 3-4 episodes. I think the last 2-3 episodes will be fantastic if they keep this up. We've gone from the Carrie/Brody focus of Season1/2 and moving much more towards a Saul/Dar Adai/inner workings of CIA focus. Which really is the only way you can go to keep this series working.

Ugliest cry face I've ever seen...and I would only agree to bang her if she was making that face until climax.

There are a couple of scenes in Season 1 where she gets it on with Brody and makes some amazing noises.

well, there's the other side of the coin with game of thrones.  ah yes, i will give you characters to love, and at the zenith of your admiration, i will kill them horribly, only after humiliating them and forcing them to watch all of their works turn to shiat.

i like a happy medium.  let us keep some characters, but kill some off... occasionally kill off a well loved character, just to make us like the others all the more.  but don't kill off everything single redeemable person in the show

I'll tune in when there's some full frontal, and gratuitous rear viewing. Until then, eh.

The show is wickedly uneven.  The episodes focusing on the CIA are pretty good.  Those focusing on Brody's family (especially his daughter) suck.  The rest are somewhere in between.  That being said there is one thing that really started to bother me on the show.  I hesitate to even mention it on fark, for fear I will get shouted down as some sort of feminist stooge, but there have been some problems with the way women are portrayed on the show as less than stable:

1.  Carrie is clearly unstable - they get a pass on this one, as it is the conceit of the show
2.  Jessica Brody - nothing but window dressing, cries a lot.  Doesn't do much else
3.  Dana Brody - well, where to go here: angsty, unstable, tries to kill herself. The problem here is that it largely lifts the characteristics of Carrie.
4.  Mira - Sauls wife, probably the most stable woman on the show (up until #5), however, turns out she is cheating on Saul even after reconciling, and is often seen trying to convince saul to not do his job to be with her.  Maybe expected, but not sympathetic.
5. The new analyst (Fara) - Ok, the one exception. she seems to be professional, driven and smart without a whole lot of negatives.  I am a few episodes behind so this may change

Now the men on the show:
1.  Brody - ok, once again, he is a central character on the show, so not going to grade this one too tough, but even though he is a terrorist is portrayed somewhat sympathetically, if conflicted.
2.  Saul - portrayed as professional, smart and somewhat paternal, crosses over to condescending on occasion
3. Peter - cold blooded killer, with a heart of gold.
4.  Dar Adal - probably the most negatively portrayed man on the show.  Clearly an opportunistic prick.

One thing I will give the show credit for: a complex portrayal of Islam.  One one hand, the terrorists are clearly Muslims.  On the other hand, Islam is shown as giving peace to a conflicted man (Brody) and willing to stand up against terrorism (the mosque in Venezuela)

I liked her in that movie about the retarded slaughterhouse girl. That was hot.

RyansPrivates: 4.  Mira - Sauls wife


I'm actually much less sure of the point of this subplot than I am Dana Brody. I guess it's some kind of insight into what drives Saul, but it's a bit pointless overall. Thankfully it doesn't get too much screentime.

somedude210: I think what you're seeing is the killing off Brody without talking about him.



that would be interesting, but I still think it comes off as a way overly difficult narrative (and I still doubt that will happen). So is the point of this entire season just clean-up and transitioning to something better in the 4th season?

I think it's more of a "washington destroys all that we love" type thing. Remember in season 1 the absolute heartache you felt for Saul when she told him she was leaving for Mumbai. It's more of drawing a parallel between Saul and Carrie in that each can't have what they want because they're more devoted to the agency.

Honestly, I think that's the end game with this season is to prove they don't need brody and to kill him off eventually. Saul has always been the real main character. Without him, this show would be crap
