'Homeland' season finale: What did you think?

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the December 16 episode of Showtime's "Homeland."]

The final episode of season two opened with Carrie and Brody bringing groceries in to the Mathison family cabin. The pair, finally a (kinda sorta) couple, remarked about how eerily familiar the cabin setting was, except this time there weren't any secrets between them.

Little did they know that Quinn was tailing Brody.

Season two’s penultimate episode picked up with Carrie searching for Abu Nazir in the tunnels under the abandoned mill, where just hours before the man dubbed “Sandman” held her hostage. Carrie saw Nazir, but lost him in the maze of pipes and darkness.

Homeland: ‘I’m killing you’

Last night’s episode, “Broken Hearts,” opened at a diner where, after establishing a mutual affinity for the waffles served up at said greasy spoon, Dar Adal told Saul that Quinn worked for him. Adal, an off the books CIA Black-Ops guy, suggested that perhaps Estes didn’t trust Saul.

Jessica, who was still in hiding with Mike and the kids at the uber-luxurious D.C. condo safehouse, told Mike she was still “waiting to feel guilty” about sleeping with him the previous night. Seconds later, Brody strolled in and announced to his family that he was “just a Congressman who helped the CIA.”

A ‘Clueless’ reunion, vampire style

A new vampire movie reunites Alicia Silverstone and Wallace Shawn with director Amy Heckerling.

“Vamps” tells the story of Goody (Silverstone), who was “turned” in 1841 in Manhattan. Turned means she was bitten by a stem vampire (Sigourney Weaver). In Heckerling’s vampire universe, stems "awaken" victims they choose not to drain.

Goody spent roughly 150 years as a perpetual twentysomething in Manhattan racking up over 10,000 college credits (she couldn’t graduate because the ceremony was always held during the day) and essentially biding her time until her stem turns Stacey (Krysten Ritter from ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B-- in Apt 23”) in the early 1990s and she had a BFF for life.

‘Homeland’: Brody unhinged

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the November 18 episode of Showtime's "Homeland."]

Last week, Dana ran off when Carrie showed up at the D.C. police station and shut down her efforts to confess to the hit and run. So when we picked things up on Sunday, Dana had hopped a bus to Mike’s condo.

In the Brody family kitchen, a worried sick Brody and Jessica engaged in a screaming match about Dana. Jessica was upset because, as parents, they were supposed to set an example for their daughter. She insisted that Brody tell the CIA to back off.

Sunday's episode revealed that Brody's role on Abu Nazir's team is only going to get larger from here, as Roya told Brody during his morning jog.

Brody - sweaty but stylish in a moisture-wicking Lululemon tee - was abruptly informed that things were moving fast but details were not possible.
