First, as we have seen over and over again on Homeland, nobody knows Brody like his daughter, Dana. Dana flatly told the pissed off CIA guys that her daddy wasn't responsible for the CIA atrocity. I believed her.
I loved the way the scenes in the early part of the show played out. When Quinn had Brody centered in his rifle's telescopic sight, I thought that Quinn of all people should realize than Brody was no longer a national security threat but was no more than a political liability to Estes' future career. Consequently, I really enjoyed Quinn's scene in Estes' bedroom in which Quinn said just that and told Estes he would kill him if Estes didn't call off the hit on Brody. Like Quinn, I am now satisfied that Brody really isn't a terrorist anymore. In this connection, I confess that I couldn't help but feeling a little glad that the murderous careerist, Estes, was one of the victims of the terrorist attack on CIA headquarters.
Poor Carrie! Seeing her trapped between her love for Brody and her devotion to her job overlaid with her emotional fragility, has been heartbreaking. Although she has decided to return to the CIA, she is paying a big price for her loyalty to the agency. Claire Danes performance as Carrie in the finale was wonderful.
I trust Saul. I think he has a moral compass and would never, ever, do anything that threatened the security of the United States.
I thought the Season 2 finale was deeply satisfying and one of the all time best episodes of the series. I am really looking forward to Season 3.
