Has Brody reached the end of his tenuous grip?
As David Harewood, who plays David Estes in HOMELAND succinctly puts it in the 'Debrief' video extra below, '(Homeland) is a show where you never know what is going to happen next.'
If you saw last week's crazy-great episode you know exactly what he's talking about (and I so agree with him!)
As soon as an episode becomes available I jump right on it. Homeland is literally my very favourite show on television right now.

The cast discuss the climatic ending of episode 4.
I cannot recall the last time a television show--a political thriller at that, literally made me gasp in shock at what transpired onscreen. And I'm not talking the mind-bending capture of Brody at the end of the last episode. Oh no, there is so much more to come and yet as Morena Baccarin ('Jessica') says in the "debrief' video, "You think to yourself, if Brody gets taken down it's the end of the show--but of course, it's not--it sets up episode 5 and we get to see what happens when Brody is taken in and which way he's gonna go.'
So what do you think is going to happen to Brody? Will he cooperate? Will he break? Will the CIA use as brutal tactics as Abu Nazir did when he captured Brody? So many questions!
Brody finds himself prisoner again, but this time it’s on American soil. Meanwhile, Carrie is forced to play second fiddle after her rash judgment call at the hotel, as Estes is busy sweeping the tracks clean to keep Jessica off their trail. And Dana’s relationship with Finn is taken to the next level from fun to deadly serious. (Credit: Showtime)
