Homeland: Homeland: On Carrie and Quinn's Relationship | SHOWTIME
Does anyone still hold out any hope for the Carrie/Quinn romance? I was pretty saddened when Quinn's gassing last season kind of got in the. Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn and Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison in Her relationship with Brody (Damien Lewis) was compelling in its. Homeland showrunner Alex Gansa on Carrie's ever-more-fragile on Season 7's Trump Inspiration, Alex Jones and RIP Peter Quinn . Especially with Peter Quinn gone, that is the first and foremost relationship on the show.
But what was interesting this year is that there was a real meeting of the minds. In other words, there was a strange partnership that had developed between the intelligence community and the Washington Post, The New York Times in which these two entities, once adversarial, were now joined to try to combat a non-fact based administration. And now they were joining forces to combat an administration that they felt was not doing that and that was a very interesting alliance to watch.
In previous years we would have to separate our high level intelligence officers during these field trips from journalists who would come in.
And this year there was a real feeling of fellowship in the face of what they both considered a threat to democracy and to the nation. So that was interesting to witness. To shine a line on that? Our first goal is to is to entertain and to take Carrie Mathison on the next chapter of her life. And it has its impact on everyone. Right now Saul is going to exact his pound of flesh in exchange for joining the administration.
Are we going to see them come back together? Is that going to continue to play out over the course of the season? Especially with Peter Quinn gone, that is the first and foremost relationship on the show. Is that going to come back and play a role?Homeland - Down the Line - s4 Carrie & Quinn
Oh, he will definitely be referenced. He is not referenced in the first episode. But his absence will be addressed. Keane was a candidate we were rooting for.
Is that the impact of the attempt on her life? A natural impact of that attack. We see her as isolated and we see her as genuinely afraid of enemies inside her own government. So is there a Big Bad this season?

Well, you would be exactly correct about that. How much Alex Jones have you been watching to do research for this show? And my god, the things he says in front of the camera are just mind-blowing — truly, truly mind-blowing.
And he has embraced this character in a way that just blows my mind. His physicality is degrees different from Jake. Has he been watching? So I would not recommend getting in the ring with him. Well, you should definitely be wary of David Wellington. But what you should really do is watch Linus Roache and Elizabeth Marvel create such a fascinating duo in the Oval Office this season.
The dance that they do with each other this season is really interesting. They have created a relationship and a partnership in the Oval Office that develops over the season and really winds up in a pretty extraordinary place.

Carrie and Franny are now living with her sister back in D. And we start the show where Carrie and Franny might have overstayed their welcome a bit.
Quinn's flight When we find Quinn Rupert Friendthe soldier is in a bad place after the events of Season 5. Of course, that's to be expected after suffering a brain hemorrhage caused by exposure to a chemical weapon. But it's still incredibly sad watching Quinn keep Carrie at arm's length, refuse to participate in physical therapy and then get robbed of hundreds of dollars by a hooker and her boyfriend after am ill-advised drug trip. However, watching Quinn move in with Carrie and Franny — which is sure to get bad before it gets better — we can't help but wish the show had just let Quinn die.
Carrie does not need to be coupled up with a man to be an interesting TV character, yet the show seems unable to let that go.
Her relationship with Brody Damien Lewis was compelling in its shades of gray and moral ambiguity, as was Quinn's journey of going from someone meant to assassinate Brody and later, Carrie to Carrie and Saul's ally. But forcing Carrie and Quinn together romantically seems a little trite. Don't get us wrong, Quinn is a great character and Friend is fantastic in his portrayal.
But maybe kicking Season 6 off with a kinder, gentler Carrie who just wants to do her own thing, raise her daughter and help people, only to be dragged back into the world of the CIA, would have been more interesting than saddling her with Quinn and all of his baggage. Alas, that train has left the station, because Quinn is now living downstairs in Carrie's apartment. The only thing we can hope for is that at some point Quinn becomes involved in the overarching Season 6 plot, since right now, the Quinn scenes feel like an entirely different show than the rest of the premiere episode.
Elizabeth Marvel as Elizabeth Keane and F. Murray Abraham as Dar Adal. Murray Abraham are meeting with President-elect Elizabeth Keane Elizabeth Marvel as part of the transition process between the election and inauguration. Keane is perhaps the most interesting character in the Season 6 premiere, as parallels can be drawn between Keane and Hillary Clinton former junior senator from New York ; Keane and Donald Trump lack of foreign policy experience and a distrust of the CIA ; and Keane and Cindy Sheehan anti-war activist whose son was killed serving in Iraq.
Saul thinks that Keane's suggestion that "not every problem in the Middle East deserves a military solution" is perhaps not that crazy.
