|Pic from Showtime - Brody in prison in Iran
The last twenty minutes last night - after the horrible public execution of Brody in Tehran - stripped back what was left and, frankly, it doesn't add up to much. Without Brody there is no series. The paranoia, the confusion and the second guessing of motive made Homeland so gripping, so surprising and to quote a word used twice last night - astonishing.
There cannot and should not be a season 4 - it has been reduced to the level of Spooks, where the story always trumped the characters. Enough.
