Homeland gets me every week. The twists and wild cards the writers throw at us make make for some ridiculously tense viewing, but I haven't had to close my eyes ... at least, not yet! Though, this week I came close.
"You and me and bars," Carrie says as she meets Brody for the first time in season two, episode four of Homeland. Brody fires back, a little too flirtatiously for a man who's wife has realized he's full of the bullshit and kicked him out that very morning, "Always ends up in an interesting way, doesn't it?"
The word choice: "interesting" is an ominous prediction of the rest of the episode. This series can give you serious heart palpitations with all of the plot-twists ... leaving the viewer on the edge of his or her proverbial seat.
The moral of this episode? Don't bother trying to befriend your ex.
