Welcome to Carrie in Brooklyn: She’s a single mom raising a cute ginger-tot in brownstone Brooklyn. How can she afford a Brooklyn brownstone? How do any television characters afford their fabulous New York apartments?
TV Show: Homeland
It’s season finale time and Carrie finally sees the light, and it is literally a train coming at her in a tunnel, but then she sees another light and another and another. Saul makes a new friend. Allison has a bumpy ride. Dar fills Carrie in on Peter’s lost years.
In the season penultimate, the countdown has begun. Peter Quinn may have to make one more sacrifice. Allison is dumped by the Kremlin, but if she wants her alimony, she’s got one more mission. Saul interrogates Marwan and it feels like deja vu all over again.
The jihadis give Europe a 24-hour deadline before they launch a deadly attack. Is that enough time for Carrie to save the world? And is it already too late for Peter Quinn?
Allison is on the run. It looks like Saul and Carrie are together again for real, and both are back in the CIA’s good graces, but isn’t anyone the least bit worried about Peter Quinn?
This week on Homeland, Peter’s new friends aren’t being very nice to him. Dar is angry for a change. Saul and Etai play chess, and Carrie and Allison meet for coffee.
Carrie asks Allison for help. What a coincidence! Allison also wants something from Carrie — her life. Peter Quinn’s storyline continues to operate completely separately, but we’re sure it’ll connect with everything else sooner or later.
This week on Homeland, Carrie goes to Saul for help, but doesn’t get the answer she was expecting.
This week on Homeland, Quinn is much better at killing other people than killing himself.
The mastermind behind this season’s evil undertakings is revealed! Oh, and Peter doesn’t actually kill Carrie, but you already guessed that.
Is it that time of the season already when Carrie goes off her meds and gets a little bit crazy? Yep, and it doesn’t look like her happy new relationship is going to survive it. But who needs love when you’ve got all those fun hallucinations.
Somebody’s gotta take the fall for the CIA snafu in Berlin, and it can’t be Carrie since she’s no longer in the game anymore. Besides, she’s too busy dodging assassins on both sides of the War on Terror in this week’s Homeland recap.
Season 5 of Homeland kicks off in Germany. With the CIA behind her, Carrie is now happily playing house in Berlin and working to save starving children. But the CIA is never really behind you.
