It's Citizen Carrie in 'Homeland' season premiere

The big winner at this year’s Emmys is back.

Just as she was about to undergo electroconvulsive therapy that would erase her short-term memory at the tail end of season one, it dawned on Carrie that Brody had developed a close bond with Issa, Abu Nazir’s 10-year-old son who was killed during a U.S. drone strike on Iraq.

Brody, whose suicide vest failed to detonate while in a bunker with the vice president, remedied the malfunctioning explosive device and was about to detonate it when when his daughter Dana’s tearful plea to come home stopped him in his tracks just as he was about to flip the switch.

Season two begins six months later.

Sofia Vergara's Emmys night more fun than yours

Ever since we viewed footage from her 40th birthday party, Sofia Vergara's been on our list of famous people we want to party with. The footage coming in that captures her fun after the Emmys on Sunday just proves our point.

TMZ posted a video of the "Modern Family" star working it on the dance floor after the ABC series picked up another outstanding comedy Emmy, and photographs show Vergara having a ball with her reported fiance Nick Loeb as well as her co-star and the night's winner of the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy Emmy, Julie Bowen.

Emmys 2012: What's the verdict?

The reaction to the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards has to be split into three categories: The fashion; the entertainment factor, which often rests on the shoulders of the host; and whether those who deserved to win did.

On the fashion end of things, everyone's still salivating over Sofia Vergara's dress, and as far as entertainment value, the 64th Primetime Emmys wasn't half-bad with Jimmy Kimmel as host. Sure, it wasn't the best awards show we've ever seen - Kimmel's routine, we thought, was uneven - but it did end on time (few winners were allowed to stay on the stage long before the music started up).

The awards? That's a different story.

'New Girl's' Max Greenfield 'ready and available' for '50 Shades'

Emmy winner Julianne Moore gets validation for playing Palin

It took a behind-the-scenes village to transform Julianne Moore into Sarah Palin for the HBO movie "Game Change," and Moore thanked all of them as she took the Emmys stage Sunday night.

The actress won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or movie, and she told the audience that she felt "so validated since Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down."

She also shared her gratitude for her dialect coach, "the amazing cast" and director Jay Roach, "who held my hand and guided me through."

Roach then went on to pick up the Emmy for outstanding directing of a miniseries or movie, and congratulated "Game Change" script writer Danny Strong, who won the Emmy for outstanding writing of a miniseries or movie.
