Morena Baccarin told us that “Homeland’s” third episode involves a “game-changing” moment for Brody. “It’s something that makes you think, How are they going to keep going with the season?” she revealed. A new sneak peek from Sunday’s “State of Independence” seems to hint at exactly what she meant.
In the clip below, Roya calls Brody to inform him that the CIA is sniffing around Bassel the tailor-cum-bomb maker and he’s in imminent danger of being caught. Her order? Brody needs to get his Congressional behind to Gettysburg ASAP to deal with the situation, despite his engagement that evening to speak at the veteran’s fund raiser that Jess and the veep’s wife are hosting.
Photos from the episode clearly reveal Brody taking on Roya’s assignment. So the next logical question is: Is this whose body we’ve seen Brody dragging through the woods in various different promos? Brody’s murderous facial expression, vise grip, and all-navy “this will cover blood stains” outfit don’t exactly scream, “Bassel will live!” But only time will tell.
The latest episode of Homeland airs on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9/8c on Showtime.
