Ok kids, avert your eyes from this story if you haven’t seen the third and crucial season of “Homeland” season 3. There will be spoilers.
If you watched Showtime’s political thriller last season you know things got real and went very sideways. The season was a game changer to the main arc of the show and for many jumped the shark (we’ll get to that soon). In short, in the aftermath of a terrorist attack committed by Abu Nazir's organization, things went south for the CIA in the press, but a covert plan was put into place lead by Acting Director Saul Berenson (Mandy Patankin). To make a long story short, suspected Langley bomber Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) was eventually captured and re-recruited by the CIA for a clandestine mission to assassinate the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. In the end, Brody was captured by the Iranians and killed, Berenson was let go by the CIA by its new chief and Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) discovered she was pregnant with Brody’s child.
