Critic reviews for Shalwar Kameez

While I understand why a panicked writers' room would resort to a romantic subplot -- like it or not, the new pace of this show is sluggish compared to what fans were used to -- matching up Carrie and Quinn is a terrible idea.

The plot thickens.

The show dialed down the intensity factor after last week to set up shop in what will presumably be its main location this season.

I'm really pleased there is a central mystery wrapped around Bachman's death, including his treasonous activities to get data and who might have given him the green light to carry them out.

Carrie Mathison remains blissfully ignorant of the damage she is causing to those closest to her in Homeland Season 4, episode 3 "Shalwar Kameez."

Normally, viewers don't have a hard time reading romantic subtext into any male/female partnership, but this Carrie-Quinn (Quarrie?) thing is flummoxing at best. Aside from the writers, has anyone been shipping these two?
