Though the character-focused drama is an obstacle for Homeland's overall destination, an unforeseen twist and an enlightening dip into the past make "Redux" a surprisingly fruitful episode.

Critic Reviews for Redux

You know something shocking is in the pipeline when Showtime refuses to make available a screener of a Homeland episode in advance. And the last ten minutes of Sunday's episode, entitled "Redux," did not disappoint.

Carrie has snapped -- again. She was wearing a straightjacket -- again. She's alienated everyone who cares about her -- again. "Redux" may be an appropriate title, but all-in-all, it's too spot-on to be complimentary.

The intensity was well executed, because Claire needs something for her Emmy submission and this would seem to be the scene for it.

It's a shame Mandy Patinkin [has had] nothing to do for six episodes, but at least here he has some dialogue that shows his character, like Homeland itself, still has spark left in there somewhere. It's just a matter of finding the right time to use it.

Homeland managed to pull off the biggest twist in its history by incorporating a cameo of a character long dead without the reveal being spoiled ahead of time.

Dec 21, 2014 | Full Review…

There is a lot going on in this episode of Homeland, which risks reopening old wounds for the show but also manages to drive the bigger story and remain engaging.

What a better episode leading up to that crazy conclusion, too.

"Redux" was another terrific episode in a season filled to the brim with them.

Dec 21, 2014 | Full Review…

Unforeseen consequences run through Homeland in provocative ways, and "Redux," despite coming across as a somewhat manipulative departure from this season's committed realism, focuses on several iterations of history's long game.

Dec 21, 2014 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, if "Redux" is any indication, Homeland has turned back toward a version of itself that it has no business being at this stage.
