  • I liked Zuleikha Robinson in Homeland and also thought she was good in HBO Rome. She was a big time baddie on that show. Unforgettable.

  • Good to have some new spoilers for the new year on my favorite show. I wonder if this has implications beyond this episode? Thanks, Megan, for the scoop! :)
