'Homeland' Season 3 premiere spoilers: Saul's betrayal, and Carrie's new tryst
"Homeland's" Season 3 premiere is only days away and, unless you're one of the many who already downloaded it, chances are you're pretty excited to see where this new season picks up. Fortunately for those of you still in the dark, Zap2it has had a chance to preview "Tin Man Is Down" to give you all a taste of what is to come. Here are some spoilers from the upcoming Season 3 premiere.
Two months have passed, but the attack on Langley still has a big presence. As Dar Adal notes to Saul, the government is taking an incredibly long time to repair the damaged CIA facility. Part of that is because the CIA looks really bad after the attack on their home base, and it's up to Saul to rebuild the organization's reputation.
Saul and Carrie's relationship has changed. Previous seasons have shown that the pair has grown comfortable in its mentor/mentee relationship. Well, no longer. Saul is no longer simply rebelling against Estes in his protection of Carrie, but instead ruining how he looks in front of the whole country. Sometimes keeping a good face means sacrifices must be made, even if they hurt the ones closest to you.
Carrie is back to her tequila and random hookups. By now, it shouldn't be a secret that Carrie Mathison is off her meds at the beginning of Season 3. That means she's back to her old ways: drinking too much tequila, and having sex with random men. Expect to see one of those things happen in the premiere, and hear about another one.
Dana's had a hard two months. Not only did her ex-boyfriend Finn Walden die in the attack at Langley, but she's also had to deal with the reveal to the world that her father was a terrorist. Carrie noted in Season 2 that such a moment would destroy Dana's life, and it nearly does.
Brody does make an appearance. "But wait?" you might say. "Haven't I been hearing all summer that he won't be in the first two episodes?" Yes, and he isn't really. Still, expect to see Damian Lewis' face pop up at least once in the premiere.
"Homeland" Season 3 premieres on Homeland at 9 p.m. ET on Sept. 29.
