The first five episodes of season 2 was probably my favorite run of TV last season. Instead of resting on their laurels after winning an Emmy, the Homeland writers turned everything upside down. They could easily have kept Brody's identity a secret for a full season, but episode 5's "Q&A" gave Carrie a much needed, if painful victory.
Then things got complicated... Brody's double agent position resulted in some torturous logic and while the Blackberry conversation with Abu Nazir probably takes an unfair amount of flak (we've seen worse from TV), it was pretty clear that the writing took a step down in the second half.
What did you think? And what do you expect for season 3?
