Previously on Homeland: SO MUCH. Like, so much.
Hello loyal readers! We know some of you by name or handle–cool internet peeps who subscribe or post or comment, plus, of course, our moms and college roommates.
But who are the OTHER visitors who make up the rest of our [uhm, insert modest number here] visitors a month? The people who maybe stop by once, only to find the perfect listicle–or to be bitterly disappointed? We decided to get to know them… by looking into the search terms that led people here.
Of course there are the expected people who came searching for Dawson’s Creek recaps or that perfect quote from Romy and Michele. But the rest are a fascinating and motley crew. Here is an unofficial and incomplete taxonomy of our search engine visitors:
Well. I very rarely get genuinely mad about plot twists in TV shows unless they involve some kind of sexism (or, OK, really annoying couples getting back together!), but WHAT WAS THAT? This episode starts out really great, then takes a wild left turn into preachy nonsense that also undoes the entire meaning of the season. DISLIKE.
I had high hopes that this episode would involve Carrie going on a really exciting mission, which I feel has been somewhat missing from this season—and I wasn’t disappointed! Things sure speed up a lot when you don’t have to take care of the six-year-old kid you had with your terrorist lover.
Spoilers under the cut.
If you think this title doesn’t make sense, then wait till you hear it in context… because it still won’t make sense. But it certainly makes gleeful use of this storyline’s connection to current events.
Have you ever just spent an hour of television yelling “OH my GOD!” at the screen every five minutes? Because that’s what I did while watching this episode.
