Right off the bat, the sixth episode of Homeland’s seventh season has an advantage over the five hours that proceeded it: Carrie and Saul are onscreen together again. Finally. Indeed, the show is always missing a little bit of its original magic when it keeps Carrie and her CIA Papa Bear away from each other for too long. Whether they’re collaborating, fighting, or some weird harmonic symbiosis of both elements—which is the case of tonight’s episode—they’re always an intriguing duo to watch. Especially how when even by speaking for a brief few minutes, they may have inadvertently turned the rest of season 7 on its head.
