The essence of a Homeland twist:
Do exactly what the audience expects.
Just do it before
they expect you to do it.
And it gets me every time. Loved the ending of this episode. I have no idea where they'll go from here for next week, or next year, or anything. It's one hell of a gamble to burn through this amount of content so fast, but I'm enjoying myself so much I can't wait to see where it goes next.
