Carrie now with a baby to raise and a fast-tracked career as an overseas station chief, Carrie is forced to make difficult choices about the direction she wants her life to take. Meanwhile, Saul, Carrie's long-time, no-nonsense mentor has been forced into retirement. Will he be able to stay in the intelligence game and keep tabs on Carrie while working for a private security firm in New York?
HOMELAND is an edge-of-your-seat sensation. CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is tops in her field despite being bipolar, which makes her volatile and unpredictable.

Well this has gone up a level in entertainment value and credit to the writers for reinventing a plot that retains much of what made 'Homeland' so watchable---- insider traitors, really really bad villains, characters you hate and would like to see them shafted and the vulnerable but heroic 'good' guys trying to get the better of the system almost with one arm tied behind their backs.
Thank goodness for the omission of Brodie's silly spoilt daughter and her disastrous relationships from the previous seasons (I wont miss her!). Instead most of the sub-plots are all pertinent to the main story which moves along probably much faster than before in my view.
I was going to drop this as the story seemed to rightly close at the end of Season 3 but having watched and enjoyed Season 4 so much I am back on track and anticipating the next season--- will our team get revenge ?????
The gap left by Brody was filled by many excellent actors - two of whom I recognised from good old Spooks!
The penultimate episodes were fast moving and violent, but the last calmer episode tied up a few loose ends, and leaving some unfinished business for the following season. Carrie seems very troubled and almost hysterical at times, but women in top jobs have to try even harder in a predominately men's world. Her character reminded me of Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect.
As always, the background music was appropriate, and as always, a lot of mumbling almost spoiled the events, and many more instances of the F word being used a bit too often.
It starts slow, which makes the sudden twists and action - which are still there, just not dolloped all over the plots like a kid let loose on a plate of chips with a ketchup bottle - all the more tense and exciting when they come. There's a fair amount of implausible plotting and questionable characters, true, but also some great action, real tension and a good sense of mystery about how the plot is going to play out. There's also a refreshing range of nuance about the records of Americans, Pakistanis and Afghans with few straightforward good guys who always do the humane thing.
The one disappointment for me was the rather too neat final episode which felt like a rotation around all the main characters and plot lines, neatly lining them up for a next season (which is indeed coming, hooray).
