SPOILER ALERT: The story includes details about the Season 6 finale of Homeland. Damian Lewis’s Brody started off as a traitor before redeeming himself and dying for his country in the Season 3 finale. His mantle was carried by another British actor, Rupert Friend. Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn and Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison in Her relationship with Brody (Damien Lewis) was compelling in its. I'm a bit of a Carrie and Quinn shipper, and a few weeks ago did a timeline for What are your thoughts about their relationship this season?.
It's kind of a bummer — his death would have been much more affecting if the show had let him and Carrie work together for a few episodes.Claire Danes Homeland describes Carrie and Quinn Romance

Murray Abraham has been up to lately. This means Dar has been meeting with both U. Add to that the fact that President-elect Keane, who wants to turn the heat down on U.
It's starting to feel like a massive U. The twist But after all of these pieces start to come into focus, Quinn is kidnapped out of Bellevue by some unknown assailants.
With that, Carrie stops recording. Despite building a family, Carrie remained prepared to run, and this ditch kit has finally come in handy. While Carrie is prepping her escape route, things have gone awry for the hackers, Numan and Korzenick.

The consequences are brutal: Korzenick is tortured until he reveals the location of the extra flash drive with the CIA docs, and is promptly killed after.
Is your aim true, Allison? Showtime Saul and Allison are heading deeper and deeper into foreign waters, concocting a plan to have Syrian president Bashar al-Assad replaced in order to diminish the violent conflict in Syria. Saul presents General Youssef with a difficult plan: Surely Homeland wouldn't be so cliched as to make Sekou a bad guy at some point down the line — this show is far more nuanced and complicated than that — but regular TV watchers know that there is probably something else going on with Sekou that we don't yet know about.
Perhaps it will have something to do with his father. When the story finds him, Sekou was planning on leaving to visit his father in Nigeria, who lives there after being deported from the U.
Or maybe it will have to do with Sekou's sister Simone Ashlei Sharpe Chestnutintroduced in the premiere as a foil to Sekou's proud Muslim beliefs. Regardless of the what, we feel fairly confident that there is more than meets the eye with Sekou and his family, because Homeland loves nothing more than a good twist — so keep your eye on the Bahs.
Quinn's flight When we find Quinn Rupert Friendthe soldier is in a bad place after the events of Season 5. Of course, that's to be expected after suffering a brain hemorrhage caused by exposure to a chemical weapon.
But it's still incredibly sad watching Quinn keep Carrie at arm's length, refuse to participate in physical therapy and then get robbed of hundreds of dollars by a hooker and her boyfriend after am ill-advised drug trip.

However, watching Quinn move in with Carrie and Franny — which is sure to get bad before it gets better — we can't help but wish the show had just let Quinn die. Carrie does not need to be coupled up with a man to be an interesting TV character, yet the show seems unable to let that go.
Her relationship with Brody Damien Lewis was compelling in its shades of gray and moral ambiguity, as was Quinn's journey of going from someone meant to assassinate Brody and later, Carrie to Carrie and Saul's ally.
