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.

This show really hasn't lost its ability to shock us, as Dar Adal's unforgivable past comes to light and Carrie goes into a tailspin after a devastating day.

I, for one, remain a big fan of Carrie. She's manipulative, and she's often a mess, but she believes what she believes, she is loyal to her friends, and she has - you'll laugh at me for saying this - a purity of heart matched only by... Peter Quinn.

This inconsistent, frustrating season of Homeland continues to spin its wheels, saving big-picture issues like the bombing investigation for future episodes, while focusing on another valley in the life of Carrie Mathison.

The pieces are finally -- finally! -- coming together. For much of this season.

In "Imminent Risk," as with the rest of the season, if anything suspenseful or intriguing is happening, it's happening around Carrie more than with, or because of her.
