A season 8 tribute to the debut of the series
To his end, Homeland has decided to make a tribute to its origins, since Carrie will be suspected of being a double agent, as was the case for Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) in the first seasons. “It was a way of telling the story that is very elegant. There is a perfect symmetry. It is as if Carrie was merging with Brody in a way that feels good. It is always very clear on his patriotism. You can question it but if you put his patriotism in question, I think this is the biggest insult that one can do to him. It was interesting to play and explore it, “explained Claire Danes on Monday 13 January during the Television Critics Association.
