/ Homeland - Sunday 2nd Dec Episode Spoiler
Why was Quinn going to assassinate Brody until the moment he found that Abu Nazir hadn't been caught/killed?
Is it just something that hasn't been revealed yet about the shady dealings of Quinn and Estes, or did I miss something in the plot?
Mrs Tea and I had the thought that when Nazir was dead there would no longer be a need for Brody and in an effort to save tax dollars and avoid tabloid scandal he would be shot.
Agreed, Hunted was too complicated for its own good. And the acting was carp. I think i read that Melissa George was an option for Carrie's role in Homeland, that would have been a mistake.
Was Quinn not told "we still need him", or similar, at the end?
Yeah I thought they aborted as they need him alive as he is their only link to Nazir. If Nazir was dead, then they no longer needed Brody. But they had failed to kill Nazir, so for now Brody must be kept alive.
Not sure why they want to kill him though - punishment or pragmatic reasons?
Yes, I think that is a puzzle. I suspect the reason may become clear next week in the final episode but I think there may be more to the Estes/Quinn/guy on the bus link than is so far apparent.
Does anyone know if they will be ending it with the possibility of a third series (or season if you are a yank)?
Forgot to add. That was 9 of 12 last night, three more episodes to see.
And yes he said to Quinn "we still need him".
> Does anyone know if they will be ending it with the possibility of a third series (or season if you are a yank)?
Third series has been commissioned, according to Wiki.
Set me thinking after I'd posted. Quinn stabbed Brody in the hand, not the rational act of someone in that position. So, maybe all that anger towards Brody is because he has done something else in the past that we don't know of, something bad, but Quinn knows about it. A lot could be revealed in the next three episodes.
Pah, I give in.
But Carrie did say to him afterwards something along the lines of "that was all a show, wasn't it?" that suggested it was out of the CIA book of "how to get people to talk".
tis a bit preposterous but I still love it - the only TV show I make a date with at the moment (along with Peep Show straight afterwards of course)
I agree, you have to skate over some silliness but after a dodgy start I'm really enjoying this season.
Quinn put on a show during the interrogation of Brody and stabbed him in the hand hoping it would push him in to Carrie's mother hen hands, it worked.
The one that killed Nazir's son? Makes sense.
On seeing the final scene this suggested to me, at least, that Q would have killed B had Abu N been killed along with the rest of the cell; of which Q holds B to be a part. Now I imagine that Carrie will have to keep B alive and safe from the ever more dangerous Q.
