Critic reviews for Why Is This Night Different?
On the evening that everything falls apart for everyone on Homeland, the show itself finds a worthwhile way to spend an hour of our time.
[Carrie] remained pretty calm and collected throughout most of "Why Is This Night Different?" -- but those eyes will always haunt me.
Finally Carrie and Quinn have reunited, and despite their currently dire circumstances, it's a very welcome reunion indeed.
It worked, mostly, but time will tell how effective the treatment of a character like Allison serves the season.
This season continues to become more dire and unpredictable by the week, and it's turning into one hell of a ride.
