Homeland 6.1 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to Alex Gansa and Ted Mann.
What says Showtime?
“Carrie and Franny live in Brooklyn where Carrie works as an advocate for Muslim Americans. Dar and Saul brief President-elect Keane. Quinn struggles with his new circumstances.”
How does it start?
Carrie rides a New York bus to Quinn’s new residence.
Do we get a Nick Brody cameo this week?
We do not.
Compare and contrast President-elect Keane with President-elect Trump.
Like Hilary Clinton, Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) is a former U.S. senator. Like Trump she does not seem to be the CIA’s biggest fan.
Is Carrie boning another Muslim this season?
Not in episodes one or two.
Can Quinn speak?
“Motherfucker” is the first word out of his mouth.
What’s doing with Laura The Leaker and her hot blonde German interrogator?
I guess they’re still back in Germany?
The big news?
The weekly acid-trip opening with preteen Carrie in the lion mask is gone, at least on my screener.
What else is Showtime not telling us?
German zillionaire Otto During has big news for Carrie.
Keane’s opponent was someone named Hoynes, also the name of presidential candidate played by Tim Matheson on “The West Wing.” Powderfinger. “Stop already! Jesus!”
What’s not so good?
They don’t get to the Big Reveal until episode two, which I gather doesn’t air till Jan. 22.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
“Probably for the best,” admits Dar Adal.
Jan. 15 on Showtime and right now on Showtime’s subscriber apps.
