Seemed to just be a way to give the daughter a meatier storyline to me.
There is so much going on in the story we really don't need the daughter to do much of anything.
Ah, but remember that Brody's daughter was instrumental to how season one played out. Her attempts to reconnect with the father she never really knew and then finally prompted by Carrie to make that phonecall... it tied together.

Even if what Dana is currently doing is not important in the obvious plot sense of NOW DANA'S BOYFRIEND IS WORKING FOR HEZBOLLAH, what goes on in Brody's family can directly impact what's going on elsewhere.

Frankly the whole Brody = Jessica = Mike situation is potentially explosive. Mike knowing that Brody is unreliable, but unable to sell Jessica on it... all she'd need to know is proof that Brody is seeing Carrie again to no longer trust him, which could lead to Mike, which could lead to anything.

The emotional well-being of DC residents can change the total death count in the end. I'm not saying it's all connected, but on the other hand, is the series paying attention to what Brody's son is doing? He's a regular Bobby Draper over there. So yeah, an eye on Dana.

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

Anne Hathaway is Carrie Mathison, in the SNL parody of Homeland.

http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-li...eland/1423664/

Carrie: No! No! David! No-No-No-No! David! No!
Saul: She makes some good points David.



And apparently the CIA has upgraded to Windows 8...

That skit has almost ruined the show for me. It honestly never clicked just how nuts Carrie comes across sometimes, or how Saul is always supporting her. "She has only disappointed me every time I've trusted her. Give me one reason not to trust her again." XD

That's the only quote I liked, it was rather bad besides that and Brody's daughter.

SNL can't wreck the great show.

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

I love this show!

Another amazing episode, I'm not sure what I'll do in three weeks when the season finale airs. Maybe cry until next fall.

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

Any one watch Totally Biased? It's the Daily Show with a big black guy. Reasonably funny. They had a short skit after the hurricane that kicked America's ass last month where the host gets really solemn and talks to the camera like he's asking for money towards cancer research.

"I just want to apologise for all the white people out there you're going to bump into tomorrow. A lot of them had no have power tonight and missed Homeland. I don't personally get it, but white people really like Homeland and go apeshit whenever someone tries to get inbetween them and a new episode, so tomorrow just be extra careful around white people becuase they're going to be really grumpy and irriatable."

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

What surprised me the most in the newest episode, is that we learned that Estes actually plans

Maybe but I think it's also because of a "terrorist is a terrorist" mindset.

What gets me is how do you explain

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

Don't know if this is a spoiler? Would someone be kind enough to tell me please how to use the spoiler thingy? i'm sadly, stunningly technically decrepit...

in theory, an assassination can rally the Body Politic around a 'grieving' candidate. i wouldn't be surprised if the VP turned the tables and used a tragedy like that to maneuver himself into the Oval Office...

^ I don't think the VP has a clue what's going on. He seems like a fool with not a care other than himself. A perfect president!

For Spoilers you go to the "go advance" reply. There on the right there is a spoiler button. You type in whatever you want in the thing that comes up, but not spoilers. Then you get something that looks like [spoilers] [/spoilers]. Between the ] [ you put your spoilers.

[spoilers] Spoilers go in here [/spoilers]

Re: Anyone else watching Homeland S2 ?

I know. This show is so awesome. Last season had one storyline building up until the ending in which I was kind of upset they didn't go "BOOM!"

They made up for it this year. Not sure what they're building up to because every episode feels like a whole season.

Two left.
