Homeland’s fourth season premieres on Oct. 5. Carrie, Saul and Quinn are back, and the stakes are higher than ever. We’ve rounded up 5 things to look forward to in the upcoming season!
Homeland, one of television’s best political thrillers, makes its triumphant return to the small screen on Oct. 5. Homeland’s fourth season is the most important one yet, seeing as though one of the show’s main characters was shockingly killed off in the season three finale. Here’s 5 spoiler-y bites to munch on before the premiere!
‘Homeland’ Season 4 Spoilers
1. Brody is really, really gone.
For those of you who thought that Brody (Damian Lewis) was killed in a horrible nightmare, you’re out of luck. The former prisoner of war and father to Carrie’s (Claire Danes) child was really executed by Iranian authorities in season three. Rest in peace, Brody.
2. The old Carrie is back.
With the romance drama from Carrie and Brody being kaput, Carrie back to focusing on her work. She’s ready to make moves in Afghanistan and Islamabad. Carrie’s helping direct drone attacks for the CIA, but finds herself in a precarious position early on.
3. Corey Stoll’s character plays a major role in the first episode.
The former House of Cards star makes a big first impression in the season four opener. Corey will star as Sandy Bachman, the CIA Chief of Station in Pakistan. His role will push season four into uncharted territory for two of our favorite characters.
4. Carrie’s trying to juggle work and motherhood.
Season four opens up six months since Brody’s death, and Carrie is now mother to Frannie. Carrie realizes she may be more suited for the CIA than motherhood, but she’s trying. However, this is sure to cause drama when Carrie has to make decisions concerning her job and personal life.
5. Quinn goes through a rough patch.
Following a serious event that goes down in the premiere, Quinn (Rupert Friend) starts down a dark path. Plus, we have a feeling all his building feelings for Carrie will finally come to a head this season.
Sidenote: Saul’s (Mandy Patinkin) beard is more present than ever. Never shave, Mandy!
Homeland’s fourth season premieres Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
