Homeland 7.1 FAQ
What’s it called?
“Enemy of the State.”
Teleplay is credited to Debora Cahn (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Vinyl”) & Alex Gansa.
What says Showtime?
“Carrie and Franny are living with Maggie's family in DC. Saul and the federal employees detained after the attempt on the President-elect's life are in prison. President Keane's administration comes under scrutiny.”
Is it any good?
Yes. Season seven gets off to a strong start.
How does it start?
A sweaty Carrie, with jazz in her ears, runs but gets nowhere.
How long have the 200 intelligence officers been imprisoned?
At least nine days. Maybe a lot longer.
What is Carrie up to besides taking over her sister’s guest room?
“It’s not like she has a job,” Niece Josie says of Aunt Carrie, who claims she has an interview at the Brookings Institute that very day.
Does Carrie hatch a plan to break Saul out?
I’m saying yes.
As the trailer suggests, does Saul get the other 199 out of prison by agreeing to work for the new president?
Not this week.
Will Frannie ever meet Nick Brody’s other kids?
Who can say?
The big news?
A big part of the episode deals with right-wing media personality Brett O’Keefe, who’s on the run from the Feds and maintains the assassination attempt on President Keene was a hoax.
What else is Showtime not telling us?
Niece Josie, last seen as a preteen in season four, is now played by Courtney Grosbeck, who played Ray Romano’s daughter on “Parenthood.”
“I’m a little indisposed at the moment.” Mandy Patinkin as Saul. Lesli Margherita as Sharon. Carrie’s quick thinking.
What’s not so good?
No ghosts of Brody or Quinn torment Carrie this week.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
If you subscribed to Showtime hoping for a little hot Robert Knepper nudity, tonight is your lucky night.
9 p.m. Sunday. Showtime.
