Both episodes of Homeland this season have delivered a shocker of sorts, getting this season off to one of the strongest starts in years.
Homeland's parallel universe continues to echo and stray from our reality in fascinating ways.
Allow me to suggest an alternate title for this week's Homeland: "Carrie, What the @%&#$*! Are You Doing???"
Homeland has had to create its own alternate universe, one in which certain specifics are the same ... but the broader picture is a muddle.
Thrilling as it is to see a turbocharged Carrie in the field, it shouldn't distract us from the spectacular misjudgments that put her in this position.
The thing is, this entire arc felt like a total distraction...So far, something just feels off about the season, and I'm not talking about the conspiracy that's unfolding.
As so often happens, Homeland becomes a test of how much disbelief you're willing to suspend...Plausibility may be in short supply this season, but sometimes Homeland still gets it right.
[It's] an antidote to last week's concerns surrounding the integrity of Claire Danes' lead character.
Again, we have an interesting plot dynamic here in that O'Keefe is clearly modeled after truth-stretching talk show conspiracy theorists, but he's not wrong this time.
I'm still not sure we have a clear enough picture of what this season's plot will look like, but I feel better about the season's prospects after this episode than I did after the premiere.
