‘Homeland’ Season 3 finale: magic-marker stars are totally the same thing

  1. 1. utf8_encode(‘Homeland’ Season 3 finale: magic-marker stars are totally the same thing) Cele|bitchy | ‘Homeland’ Season 3 finale: magic-marker stars are totally the same thing (spoilers!) SPOILERS
  2. 2. SPOILERS SPOILERS Seriously, there are so many SPOILERS. Last night was the finale of Homeland Season 3 and" good God, this is not the same series I thought it would be.I LOVED Season 1.I thought Season 2 had a lot of issues, but I still liked it overall.Still, the cracks began to appear in Season 2 and then in Season 3" it just became less of an espionage TV show and more like The Carrie Soap Opera, with bonus Brody and Saul. Months ago, I read an interview with Damian Lewis where he said that he kept getting the feeling that Brody was not long for the show, and that he was asking the writers every week if Brody was going to die.Well" it happened.Brody was caught in Tehran with Carrie (who they let go because OMG THAT"S TOTALLY HOW IT WORKS, RIGHT?) and Brody was hanged in public.Part of me liked the finality of it, that Carrie and Brody got to say their goodbyes and say everything that they needed to say to each other " Carrie even told him she was pregnant.He seemed pleased.And then he was dead. The problem I had with those scenes in Tehran wasn"t so much the way they treated Brody " I"m prepared to buy the Brody situation.It was all of the Carrie sh-t that irritated me.It just seemed so silly that Carrie " after seeing Brody dragged off by Javadi"s police force " would return to her hotel in Tehran, only to be dragged away by more policemen, and then she"s taken to Javadi" who then gives her a f"king pep talk about love and the mission.WTF?! As for the pregnancy storyline, when Carrie said "I didn"t think this through," I was like, "Ha, I bet that"s what the writers were thinking."You can"t be the Istanbul station chief with a baby!Unless it"s a cover baby.And even then!So, I"ll give the writers a little bit of credit " Carrie"s ambivalence towards motherhood seemed very much in character with who she is and her lack of long-term personal goals.She is the job.She"s never wanted to be much more than the job.She wanted Brody for a while, but she never really wanted his baby.And once again, Carrie got another pep talk from the new DCI - I like the line about "I'm not judging him, I'm just not memorizing him."Seriously, Carrie, Brody did NOT deserve a star on the CIA wall.And that magic marker moment?Did anyone else think that was insulting to the actual CIA employees who die in the line of duty?Christ. So, what happens now?How does Season 4 change?No more Brody, no Abu Nazir, but we"ve got Mr. Pep Talk Javadi.And now Saul is "retired" too.Thus, Season 4 is going to be even more about The Carrie Show.Which means that I don"t know if I"m going to watch next season " I would have stuck with it without Brody (at the end of the day, I"m sort of glad he died), but if Saul is gone too, I can"t deal.The only good news?Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor (Brody"s wife and daughter) are not going to be cast regulars next season, thank God.So" should I watch next season?Here"s the deal I"m making with myself: if Rupert Friend goes to Istanbul with Carrie, I"ll totally watch it.They have some unfinished business (in their pants).
