Critic reviews for The Return

Well, I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little let down at this week's lack of bizarro Alex Jones but this week's episode does at least hit us with a healthy dose of suspense and a few jaw dropping WTF moments.

Action, intrigue, and the ideological differences between hawks and doves? Those are all in play, and those were the tent poles that made the first season of Homeland one of the best in the history of TV. Bravo!

Homeland Season 6 Episode 6 offered some Hitchcock-worthy scenes, as Carrie played cat-and-mouse with the mysterious watcher Quinn's been ranting about all season.

Its aesthetic is pointed and purposeful.

"The Return" was another impressive episode from Homeland... I am beginning to see the show has finally found its footing in a post-Brody world.

"The Return," like much of season six, is mostly shocking because of just how little happens in it. And it's one of the most exciting episodes of the season.
