I think we’re supposed to be wondering if Abu Nazir turned Brody back around during their hours together. Now that would be something. Also something: The way the writers have given almost every character on the show torn loyalties and crises of conscience. “Homeland” is getting a little cuckoo, and by cuckoo I mean “24”-ish, with plot gaps that are increasingly hard to overlook. I mean, just the fact that Carrie is still working with the CIA is silly. But nevertheless I’m still hooked in a rather big way.
