Critic Reviews for The Tradition of Hospitality

Homeland has set up a gripping premise for its new season, and I can't wait to see how it plays out.

Homeland shines brightest when the political intrigue and gunplay illuminate the ways that Carrie and the gang are striving (and often failing) as moral beings.

If nothing else, this episode succeeded in getting me excited for the Carrie/Quinn reunion, which after season four's finale is no small feat.

The tension is ratcheting up as the season kicks in, with our three leads all separated at the moment and in very different mindsets as well.

It was clear that the previously sleepiness was all purposeful, slowly building tension to a wonderful release-and a moment that actually showcased Carrie being smart and effective in her job!

And just like that, Homeland may be changed forever.

"The Tradition of Hospitality" ramped up the tension and intrigue, landing us firmly back in Homeland's best neighborhood: Stresstown.

Luckily, there's an underlying theme throughout these two opening episodes that's been electrifying the show so far, and that's the question of loyalty.

The relationships between the show's core trio of characters has never been more fractured, and "Hospitality" has me invested in seeing how they go about mending fences.

Let's say you had to pick a new best friend out of Homeland: Season 5. Who would you want it to be?... All are appealing choices.
