The season premiere of “Homeland” makes it clear that the mental and By the end of “Fair Game,” the Carrie-Quinn relationship is as. Carrie Anne Mathison, played by actress Claire Danes, is a fictional character and the protagonist of the American television drama/thriller series Homeland on Showtime, created by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon. Carrie developed a close working relationship with Saul, and is implied to have had a sexual relationship. Peter Quinn, even in his relatively feeble state, is ambushing police officers. The feared and esteemed Carrie Mathison, who is still occasionally referred sort of sexual component to their relationship early on in his career.
Regardless of the what, we feel fairly confident that there is more than meets the eye with Sekou and his family, because Homeland loves nothing more than a good twist — so keep your eye on the Bahs.
Quinn's flight When we find Quinn Rupert Friendthe soldier is in a bad place after the events of Season 5. Of course, that's to be expected after suffering a brain hemorrhage caused by exposure to a chemical weapon. But it's still incredibly sad watching Quinn keep Carrie at arm's length, refuse to participate in physical therapy and then get robbed of hundreds of dollars by a hooker and her boyfriend after am ill-advised drug trip.
However, watching Quinn move in with Carrie and Franny — which is sure to get bad before it gets better — we can't help but wish the show had just let Quinn die. Carrie does not need to be coupled up with a man to be an interesting TV character, yet the show seems unable to let that go. Her relationship with Brody Damien Lewis was compelling in its shades of gray and moral ambiguity, as was Quinn's journey of going from someone meant to assassinate Brody and later, Carrie to Carrie and Saul's ally.
But forcing Carrie and Quinn together romantically seems a little trite. Don't get us wrong, Quinn is a great character and Friend is fantastic in his portrayal. But maybe kicking Season 6 off with a kinder, gentler Carrie who just wants to do her own thing, raise her daughter and help people, only to be dragged back into the world of the CIA, would have been more interesting than saddling her with Quinn and all of his baggage. Alas, that train has left the station, because Quinn is now living downstairs in Carrie's apartment.
The only thing we can hope for is that at some point Quinn becomes involved in the overarching Season 6 plot, since right now, the Quinn scenes feel like an entirely different show than the rest of the premiere episode. Elizabeth Marvel as Elizabeth Keane and F. Murray Abraham as Dar Adal.
