OFFICIAL HOMELAND Thread | Season 6 Premieres 1/15/17 - Page 3

post #61 of 2247
^Couldn't have been in the same neighborhood. Whoever warned the woman either has an inside man or was watching the dude from the college and noticed he was being tailed.

If it wasn't for the early flashbacks I would've been said Carrie just has an obsession with Brody for no reason other than w/e happened in Baghdad. Now she's grasping for straws, I think it's going down the path where she starts sleeping with Brody, they confide in each other, she learns some important details and possibly tries to save him in the end.

That whole vet support group scene was extra since it was clear she was trying to befriend him by making contact but it almost seemed his charm got to her.

Damn this show just took a twist if they get together.

another very solid episode

this show is great, i hope people are watching it, good to hear it got picked up for another season.

I'm not sure how long a show like this could last maybe 4-5 seasons tops.

but so far so good.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

i really hope they don't end up together, that would be too obvious and stupid

Good ep tonight. She got some nerve going in to her boss' house cursing him out cuz she's obsessed with Brody, there's still no clear evidence pointing to dude.

I can already see Brody smashing. Danes' character is mad loose and obviously unstable. It'll be crazy to see it happen now due to how much jeopardy she put her job in by pressing the matter so if that gets revealed she may have screwed herself.

Anybody else suspect a twist where Saul might be the one that gave dude the blade and the whole plan is to make it seem like Brody might be the one that turned? From the previews I have a feeling Brody passes the polygraph test which would make Carrie more obsessed and crazy about him.

Hmm very possible... When he went into the room with him he took both of his hands from underneath... Easy spot to slide him something.

Also there was no transcription of what he said to him in Arabic either so either it was nothing or we're just supposed to think it was nothing when really he was coaching.

This show smiley: pimp

Sounded like a prayer of sorts, he also prayed when the guy died. Outside of Brody, he is the only one who had contact with the dude so I guess we'd have to wait and see.

It being Saul would be a crazy twist but when did he get turned? I didn't suspect that but it's a good idea since he's constantly brushing off Brody as a sleeper without good evidence and the idea that an America has been turned.

Also if it is the case it doesn't change the fact that they coerced Brody in to killing his friend. They had to do that for some reason. It couldn't have been just to @%*+ with him.

Well there were also the 2-3 guys that jumped into the pile when he and Brody were scrapping... 1 or 2 guys held him down and the other got Brody stood up...

We don't know but it's possible, he might have been involved in the 911 events as well and have been "inside" all this time. Remember he said it himself that "everyone missed something that day".

It's also true that he did kill his friend but again we need more info on why, they might have told him that his friend has turned so they gave him a chance to set it all straight and he took his friends life, looks like they might touch up more on it next week. 

As for the two guards handing the blade, the guys doesn't seems too relevant since they didn't even bother giving them some air time at all. They were just standing there and all of a sudden got between them. Plus that won't have as much impact if Brody or Saul did it. Possible but doesn't have that "wow" factor. 

I'm just thinking of possibilities and it seems like they are making it too obvious that Brody is guilty.

I had suspicions about Saul maybe being involved. Next week's episode is looking great.

I also just remembered the e-mail the guy provided that might have tipped off the professor, Brody had no way of knowing the e-mail was given but Saul might have known exactly who the email was going to implicate so might have warned the professor. Plus he also had the authorization to let Carrie search the professors house but he was hesitant, with good reason, but was that really the reason? Hmmmm... In the end, both Brody and Saul might have both been turned.

I think Saul dies just so the show continues and has a new storyline.

I think the wife being the terrorist became obvious last episode (last week, not this past Sunday)

and I hate that Brody and Carrie hooked up and are going to continue to do so. Not only does it mess up the professionalism, and the case, but it was obvious and too easy too do.

I still think Saul is involved heavily somehow.

and based on the previews for next week, it seems like Brody is going to find out Carrie and them were spying on him during his first few days at home
post #78 of 2247
Great ep.

The wife was obvious. Signs pointing to Saul being the inside this ep, made him more suspicious with he was too upset to take it the first time. I like how the writer's cast more doubt on Brody and Saul this ep by how they effortlessly beat the lie detectors.

I called them hooking up a while back so I'm not shocked they're continuing it. The professionalism is gone but Carrie really never was. Sloppy job on protecting her informant on the inside, sloppy surveillance on Brody's house, sloppy tactics to get her superiors on her side which all failed and further alienated her, going to her boss' home and cursing him out, the illegal medication, and now she banging a possible traitor and terrorist. Seemed like just another step escalating to her collapse or she might be able to get it together just in time.

I figure she finds a way to play off the fact that she knows certain things about him she shouldn't.
post #79 of 2247

did claire danes and Brody smash because she wants to get closer

you know what they say about keeping your enemy closer

last time i remember claire danes being this fine was back in 97' with DiCaprio in Romeo & Juliet

Wish Showtime Canada would air this show.  maybe they didn't do it because of the political views of this show, or was it the nudity and sexual provocative scenes 

post #80 of 2247
she didn't sleep with him to get closer, she slept with him bc she was drunk and stupid

He sonned her with that polygraph though. laugh.gif

Did you even read the first two pages?



Anyways... Tonights episode was insane... They're really throwing me for a loop with this talk about Walker being alive... Marine One being in the line of sight of that house smiley: eeksmiley: eek

Is Brody lying about killing Walker or did Abu Nazir replace Walker with another black guy who was already beaten to the point where Brody wouldn't realize the difference? Pretty insane regardless...

Looks like well be getting more insight to who is really running these terrorist sub-plots in the next ep. pimp.gif
post #84 of 2247
Yoooooo they flipped the script this ep. I'm thinking they're gonna heavily point to Saul like he gonna bang the blond, let her go and then kill his own team come to find they made the black guy the traitor. Son being alive is WILD. Great episode.

The whole Carrie and Brody thing actually applied pressure and made it better leading up to the climax. Son breaking down like that, then she gets exposed, answers all the questions truthfully for once and then just like that it's over. Actually had me rooting for them.

I figure now they told Brody to kill Walker to mess with him cuz they could while they were probably telling Walker that even his partner gave him up so he should give up on his country or told him that they already turned Brody so he might as well join.

They should've shown one scene with Walker and Brody meeting for next week's ep pimp.gif

That's the ting though, they had to come out the gate strong to secure a 2nd season and hopefully more but now you gotta kinda look at the big picture and down the line some ppl start dying, then you get to w/e Abu Nazir is planning and them actually doing it and then FBI/CIA trying to stop it and after adding that with all the drama stuff that's maybe 4 good seasons. Dexter on the other hand is in a whole different place. Don't care for the religion angle much but it has developed his character more and flesh out the whole idea of a dark passenger.

My man, sorry for going on such a heavy Dexter rant, Dexter's just really irking me. Homeland benefits from being something fresh, so instead of analyzing so many details like I have done with Dexter, I'm just getting a grasp of the story.

You're right about saying maybe 4 good seasons, I honestly could barely see this going 3 seasons without it getting extremely played out. (I.E. The Killing on AMC) Meaning that instead of actually having the story progress they just keep putting off any major potential event (Nazir actually going through with a major attack).

It seems to me that both Brody and Walker have been re-programmed. The details of how he was tortured seems to follow along the lines of certain CIA programming techniques, and his explanation of Abu-Nazir's kindness towards him cemented it for me. All the fanfare and heroes welcome for Brody was meant to trigger Walker, but I still think Saul had something to do with the death of that prisoner
