Journeying into the mind of Carrie Mathison is a scary thing. Though the (former) FBI agent is undeniably intelligent and perceptive, her thoughts have gotten increasingly scattered and her mania has gotten to the point of being unmanageable. At the end of Homeland's first season, the Homeland heroine was being subjected to electro-shock therapy, a threat to the epiphany she had regarding Brody's relation to Issa and the potential danger he poses. But can she hang on to the revelation?
That's just the question that the latest Homeland teaser is posing, as Carrie has to try to find a way to sort through the noise and cherry pick the information necessary to implement Brody. With the military veteran making a bid for political office at the behest of Abu Nazir, she only has a short window in which to act before Brody becomes darn near untouchable. And more dangerous than ever. He might not have detonated the vest in the season finale, but Brody can do arguably more damage through legislation and passing/blocking bills in the best interest of his cause. It's up to Carrie to neutralize that threat before the bureaucratic red tape becomes too much to deal with.
Homeland was nominated for nine Emmys last Thursday, including nods for Outstanding Drama, Lead Actress, Lead Actor, Writing, and Directing. They led all freshman comedies and dramas in nominations, having already collected Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Television Awards, Writers Guild of Americ Awards, a Satellite Award, a Peabody, and a spot on AFI's Top 10 TV programs of 2011 list.
Are you ready for the next season of Homeland? How much information do you think Carrie will remember after her electro-shock therapy? Can she bring Brody down before he does any damage, legislative or otherwise?
