Critic reviews for Imminent Risk
"Imminent Risk" is basically an exhibition of every player in the Homeland game trying something super sneaky and then having it blow up in their face, except for like, Dar Adal. He's evil and gets away with everything.
All of this is nitpicking what was an above-average episode, and another solid effort after last week's action-packed outing.
Still, it's been a strong season, and this episode was no exception, so I'll try to overlook some of its warts, for now.
The rest of the hour fared better than the episode's dippy centerpiece.
I found myself wondering if "Imminent Risk" might, beneath the surface, be the season's most ingenious, laced with intimations of unshakable regret.
