Is that it for Homeland? Forever? Not sure where they can go from here.

it is not the end as certain somewhat prominent but superfluous cast members it has already been noted in the press will not figure prominently in future episodes.

i wasnt particularly emotionally invested in the finale but it was only right before i began watching that i remembered i had erased the previous episode prior to watching it all the way through which had i seen it may have connected me more to the characters plight. probably not though. some of the scenes were good but much of the dialogue was overwrought. overall im more interested to see where its headed than where its been.

  Let me be clear about something: I don't care about plausibility in fiction. It's a mug's game to pick every nit, to hold every plot strand up to the unflattering light of reality. Problems arise when writers neglect to provide the ballast needed to keep our attention where it belongs, on the characters and the drama that spins out of their many interactions. Back in November, I wrote about how dangerously detached the series was becoming from these anchors, how the particulars of the third season seemed designed to problem-solve and shock, not to tell a compelling story that could stand on its own. Dana Brody's legitimate anguish was transformed into runaway schlock. Carrie's hospitalization was revealed to be a trick, a scheme devised to bait the audience as much as Iran. Akbari was a nothing, his connection to the 12/12 bombing too convoluted even to consider. By the time Brody commandoed into Iran, the emotional tether that had once kept me riveted to Homeland had snapped completely. When Brody's dangling body went slack, I felt nothing at all.

All I've seen is negatives. Guess I'm the only person in the world who thought it was great.

these two liked the finale and a number of people in the comments section but probably not a preponderance.

funny i kind of liked the final scrawling the star on the wall moment which was generally skewered but then most people register their dislike a lot more liberally than the reverse.
