Episode Info

Episode Info:

This is the end, not just of Season 3 of Homeland, but of an arc that's been developing since the very beginning of the show. In "The Star," Brody and Carrie have some final epiphanies about the nature of their work and what's been done to them, and the mission in Iran finally comes to a close. Is it a satisfying end to the season? Has Brody redeemed himself? What is the show's underlying message about institutional violence and war? And what could be coming in future seasons? Tune in to find out. NOTE: There will be one more episode of The Briefing Room looking back at the season as a whole, so stay tuned for more Homeland discussion!
