Homeland Finale

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/b8a/56539752/files/2014/12/img_9550-1.jpg

Dedicated to the late James Rebhorn. Understated, tying up loose ends of past seasons and setting the stage for next season. Here are the highlights:
-Carrie returns home to eulogize her father.
-Carrie’s mother returns to clarify that she’d abandoned Carrie and the family not because of her husband’s and daughter’s bipolar temperaments, but because she’d gotten knocked up by someone else and couldn’t stay. This information seems to help Carrie by confirming that it was the mother’s shortcomings, not Carrie’s, that caused her to abandon her family.
-Quinn quits the sniper/spy business (initially).
-Carrie and Quinn finally kiss, but Carrie refuses Quinn’s help going after her mother, and Quinn promptly leaves to “go dark” on the next spy mission.
-Carrie feels betrayed by Saul and Dar Adal (sp) because they apparently both know Dar was playing both sides.
-Carrie takes care of Frannie and meets a friend of her dad’s while walking in the park. The friend reveals that Carrie’s dad had faith that Carrie would come back for Frannie.
That’s about it. I enjoyed this season and personally am glad that the era of Brody is gone.
