      Hard to say. Saul did say that there's no chance she can appeal her termination. And he's too much of a pro to keep feeding her classified info. Is Claire Danes confirmed for Season 2? I had no idea she was 42. She looks more like 32!

      I was thinking brody would set off the bomb in the bunker with her boss in it, then they would slip her back in somehow

      According to IMDB she is 32.

      Loved and hated the finale all at the same time - Frustrated that the Brody situation is unresolved as i'd like to see Homeland a little more like 24 in regards to being able to shift from one plot line to another. I was honestly expecting it to end with Brody's death ala suicide bomber and then for the hunt for Nazir/extended American cell. This would also vindicate Carrie... however that clearly seemed like too "easy" a way out.

      I'm not sure how dragging this one plot line into a 2nd season is going to go... Homeland at times moves too slowly keeping your glued to the TV for the 1 critical revelation of that single episode. How long will viewers be willing to do this for? If they're like me... at least for one more season as I already can't wait for the return of this show.

      I must say that i'm so glad that Saul remained one of the good guys (at least for now...) a few things I would have liked to have come out in the finale

      1. Who slipped the razor blade to that guy?
      2. Did Brody search Walker after he shot him? Certainly that cell phone etc has to have some good evidence
      3. Where is that video of Brody (suicide note)?
      4. How will Carrie be able to play a part in all of this no longer working for the CIA?

      I beleive it was Brody who slipped him the blade, however I don't think Saul is as innocent as it may seem. He did whisper something to him in Arabic as he lead him into the room.
      2. Did Brody search Walker after he shot him? Certainly that cell phone etc has to have some good evidence
      Brody had the Cell phone still in his hand as he walked out of the tunnel
      3. Where is that video of Brody (suicide note)?
      I think someone in Abu Nazir's camp picked it up and they could/may use it against him if he does not cooperate.
      4. How will Carrie be able to play a part in all of this no longer working for the CIA?
      I think Saul will keep feeding her info because he trust her and knows she is a good agent. We will see after she comes out of this treatment.

      ^^ ok that settles it... must find someone that speaks arabic to translate what Saul whispered!!

      If Saul is bad then is the ultimate sleeper. In a way it could make some sort of sense with him getting acknowledgement from Estes and the VP that the drone attack was not an accident. Ugh does it make me hate that VP so much!! ... it could provide him with further justification and motivation for doing what he's doing... ??

      They're really leaving it open for him to go either way.... drives me

      I am not a fan of that either. One episode they lead us on to think he has some dark secrets then in another he seems like he is the most dedicated patriot in America.

      I think I agree with the statement made about being more like 24 also. Would have been nice to have this story finished up then move on to a new Homeland Security issue next season.

      Just finished watching the season... It was pretty good. I really wished they would have wrapped up the story arc though.

      A few things are buggin me though: Is he still in the Marines? Did he re-enlist? Why does he go from an E-5 to an E-7 depending on what uniform he's in? Why is he declaring his candidacy and showing up to a political event in uniform? Why aren't they making him go see a counselor?

      And a old bump from me.

      How did Brody get back out of the stronghold after making the decision not to push the little red button on his magic vest? How did no one notice the button hanging down his sleeve? They sure noticed how he looked - why didn't his Secret Service babysitter notice more?

      I realize it is kinda petty, but between that and the missing memory card with Brody's video on it, that were the only holes I could find.

      Loved the series!

      Loved the series, but hated the season finale...the way that Brody gave up because of the daughter's was too corny. With his level of stress he would have pulled the switch when the secret agent tapped his shoulder to give him the phone.
      I'm afraid that season 2 will not be as good...an explosion and a new plot would've been better.
      I also don't trust Saul.

      With season 2 I'd bet he'll be caught within the first few episodes and will be turned against the terrorist guy. The terrorist guy will die at the end of season 2, but we'll find that he was funded by someone in Washington and we will go to season 3...

      They gave the all clear and everyone left...the VP even said "brody, you look like ****!"

      Agreed.....secret service are trained in observing peoples actions and mannerisms and whatnot.

      I realize it is kinda petty, but between that and the missing memory card with Brody's video on it, that were the only holes I could find.

      Loved the series!
      Hated the finale....so many far fetched actions in this episode.....where majority of the season has been pretty realistic to a sense.

      I am about to walk to the set of this show right now - they are taping an episode inside my brother's condo. Too cool. Today they film outside on the street, right at his condo door, tomorrow inside. If anyone is in Charlotte and wants to know the location, reply and I'll publish the address.

      S2 starts tonight. From the looks of the trailer, it's going to be good. Took me a second to realize what song was playing.

      This show really gets on my nerves. I know it's the little details, but they drive me crazy.

      Carrie's bogus Canadian passport wasn't signed... I was waiting for the Lebanese immigration inspector to ask her to sign it. Then she would freak out and accidently sign her own name. End of show.

      Brody should have been checked on his way out of the secure facility for any papers... the security officer should have noticed the notes. End of show.


      Argh.
