Critic reviews for A Flash of Light
Even if it's just a TV show, Homeland clearly speaks to more than its own reality.
We got some welcome story advancement this week, as the show did a nice job of tying all of these loose plot threads together. I hope our patience is rewarded, as four episodes of laying groundwork was trying.
All in all, this was a strong episode setting up what promises to be a more action-heavy middle of the season.
The suddenly shifting dynamics offer what is perhaps the most engaging hour of the past several seasons. Certainly the best we've thus far had in season 4.
