  • I think Homeland died with Brody.
    This was an ensemble cast without him the show doesn’t work the 1st half of this season without Brody was proof of that.They were the worst episodes of the series.

    • I don’t think the show dies with Brody. What they need is a character in between Abu Nazir and Brody. That would be good I think.

  • Homeland should have used the season finale to dispose of “Jess” and “Dana” by showing their reactions to Brody’s death and Carrie’s pregnancy. It would now seem really odd for either to be back nex season in any capacity.

  • The show didn’t have to die with Brody, but the writers cracked under pressure. At the end of the finale, there really was nothing left. No hook. I think a lot of fans said their goodbyes this past Sunday night.
