'Homeland' Season 1, Episode 12, 'Marine One,' Season Finale: TV Recap. The "Homeland" season one finale began in stark, dramatic fashion. We see Brody, in full uniform, recording one of those confessional tapes that people leave before they go out and do the kinds of things for which they need to confess. "By the time you've watched this, you'll have read a lot of things about me, about what I've done," he declares. "And so I wanted to explain myself, so that you'll know the truth." But of course, as we reach season's end, we all know that "truth" is a matter of perspective on "Homeland," and hard facts take dogged pursuit to uncover.
