Critic reviews for The Litvinov Ruse
Time for a shout-out to Rupert Friend for some more top tier tortured acting.
While "The Litvinov Ruse" was an edge-of-your-seat hour of television, it's biggest accomplishment was a big FU in the face of the good guys.
"The Litvinov Ruse" kept viewers on its feet with its classic Homeland surveillance approach to Allison's desperate escape... an escape that just might've turned into a victory for the traitorous agent.
The wonderful thing about this season of Homeland-the thing I probably haven't done right by in my reviews-is its methodical and disciplined approach to intelligence and espionage.
