An addiction to action and an aversion to motherhood make CIA operative Carrie Mathison a sad, solitary player at the start of Homelands Season 4.
Showtimes most-honored series reloads with back-to-back hours on Sunday, Oct. 5th (8 to 10 p.m. central). And after a somewhat plodding start in its first season without Damian Lewis deceased Nicholas Brody, Homeland begins to find its way again while Carrie (Claire Danes) fixates as only she can.
Without detailing too much, lets at least divulge this. Initially assigned to Istanbul, where dependents are allowed, Carrie has arranged a transfer to Afghanistan for two principal reasons. War zones have more action and intrigue. But equally important to her is an opportunity to divest herself of baby daughter Frannie, whos left stateside in the care of Carries increasingly resentful sister, Maggie (Amy Hargreaves), and a part-time nanny.
This amounts to an emotional rescue for Carrie, whos drinking hard again while being celebrated as The Drone Queen by her co-workers. But when a terrorist hit goes very bad, shes plunged into the thick of an international debacle along with Islamabad, Pakistan CIA station head Sandy Bachman (guest star Corey Stoll).
Holdover Homeland character Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend), equipped with a moral compass that Carrie lacks, also finds himself ensnared. Back home in Washington, D.C., her former mentor, Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), has gone to the private sector while the CIAs diabolical new director, Andrew Lockhart (Tracy Letts), fumes and covers his tracks.
Homeland, whose fourth season will have 12 episodes, has never re-achieved the highs of Season 1. But its downward slide shows signs of leveling off by the end of Sundays opening two hours. Danes Carrie is steelier than ever, her heart hardened to near-concrete while going about the exhilarating business of eliminating terrorists no matter what the collateral damage.
Carrie retains residual feelings for Brody, but there are no flashbacks to their time together. Hes Frannies father but thats not a tie that binds her. Shes barely capable of being a mother for a day. See Episode 2 for conclusive evidence of that.
Episode 1 ends with a chilling action sequence that for a time threatens to keep Carrie on the CIAs bench. Quinn is left dazed and demoralized while she plots a return to action that again will free her from any possibility of diaper-changing and bottle-feeding.
Homeland is no longer a person-to-person love story. Carrie only has eyes for the next covert operation, throwing herself into the task with a ferocious determination to outwit, outplay and outlast all who would deter her. Its called being a survivor -- strictly on her terms.

The game has changed for Carrie Mathison. Out of the CIA and living in Berlin, Carrie is trying to start a new life but realizes now she's the one with a target on her back. As the danger intensifies, and without Saul and Quinn to rely on, one thing becomes clear - she's never been at greater risk or with more to lose.
