Sneak Peek: Episode 1 Clip: Carries Sees Yevgeny Again

"In the end, Carrie herself isn’t even sure what she’s done, and there’s something that feels right about Homeland ending on an arc about Carrie’s mental instability being possibly used as an asset for foreign enemies."


"Since Carrie is haunted by memories of clinging to Yevgeny and begging him not to leave her, we are left to ponder whether a severe case of Stockholm Syndrome caused Carrie to betray her country (almost certainly not) or if she’s being gaslighted once again (probable Bingo). Whatever the twist turns out to be, “Deception Indicated” finds Homeland on solid if familiar ground as it heads into its final stretch."


"The soldiers that Max is stationed with are, understandably, moved by his monologue and, after they make it through the aforementioned riverbed with zero casualties, anoint Max as their good luck symbol and living Buddha. Good for their casualty rate, bad for Max’s sense of personal space. We look forward to more outpost shenanigans in the upcoming episodes."
