    Homeland "State of Independence" Review: Nicholas Brody's Series of Unfortunate Events

    Some seriously crazy things happened in this episode. Too crazy? Almost.

  • Episode Summary

    "State of Independence" from the Showtime series gives Jessica (Morena Baccarin) a chance to impress D.C. high society with her fundraiser for veterans. In spite of an earlier argument, her husband Brody (Damian Lewis) pans to give a speech until Roya (Zuleikha Robinson) sends him to Pennsylvania. Carrie (Claire Danes) returns from Beirut and prepares to deliver her report at Langley.

      This was another impressive episode of Homeland where a normal day for Brody turns into a nightmare when he is contacted by Roya and told to pick up the tailor who gave Brody the bomb in season 1 and he needs to do this because the CIA know about him When so much goes wrong for Brody he is left no choice but to kill him but people are starting to notice his odd behavior The ending of the episode is what will change the way the season will be heading because Saul believes the first person who should see the tape of Brody is Carrie Every time Carrie gets involved with Brody things go wrong but this time she knows she is right about him.moreless

      everyone has a right to their own opinions,but i am confused as to how anybody can find this series anything but near flawless. it has every aspect of good drama,acting,writing and execution. occasionally a series this good will have a slower episode,but nothing is 100% and usually they serve a purpose. this episode was extremly suspensful and well is too bad toneyb is bored. not everything is for everybody,but believe me it is not series!moreless

      How can anyone take this soap opera muck seriously? The writing is atrocious. The plot is implausible. This episode was dull, dull, dull -- an hour of time stolen from viewers. I actually through the series had found direction after the revelation of Brody's 27-Virgin YouTube. Nope! An entire episode that ends up precisely where the previous episode ended up. In between, there was no plot, such as it is, advancement only Carrie freaking out, dressing and sleeping; the spellbinding suspense of Brody changing a tire, and Jess' "you like me, you really like me" impromptu speech. It's just awful.moreless

      Algum me ajuda que esse episodio foi demais!
    • Good Episode

      8.5
      I enjoyed it, even though it was a slower episode than previous ones, but if it was all action and no substance it would be like 24 and maybe turn to an unrealistic type of show, As I feel like its one of the most realistic shows I've seen.



      One question, how does Jessica know that Brody was "with" Carrie?
