The finale was decent. Not as epic as I was hoping it would be, but it was still very good. I was a little disappointed that nothing happened with Brody's bomb. I didn't expect him to actually die, but I thought the bomb would go off and Brody would miraculously survive somehow. Also, I thought we would find out who the mole is in the finale but apparently they're saving that for next season.

Brody's daughter knows he's working for Nazir, right? She could hear the sound of panic in his voice when she called him and Carrie flat out told her he's a terrorist. There can't be any doubt in her mind now that he's working for the enemy.

For the sake of a second season with the same cast, I thought this was a great finale..It would of been amazing had Brody blown up the vice president, but how could they of done that without him blowing up himself..This show set itself up very well for a second season...I think the actress that plays the daughter and Damien Lewis were the definite MVP's this episode..That phone call in the bunker was some powerful stuff..Also, loved the that Saul got his way...Mandy Patinkin is great in this role..

The end with Carrie remembering Brody knew Isa was a great cliffhanger...We didn't know about Isa that episode, so it slipped right by us all...Great show and fantastic season...I'm thinking this will win the Emmy later this year..

I liked the finale too, but yeah it would have been more cool if Brody blew himself up.

I just feel so sorry Carrie - its like she gets deeper and deeper into a hole each passing episode.

Still, great show and excited for Season 2!

Just got around to finishing the finale and there were so many good scenes. The phone call between Brody and Dana right after Carrie got arrested was my favorite, and the Brody/Tom meeting.

I was surprised that Carrie wasn't upset with Saul for telling the police she was unstable and should be removed when she was right about Brody! The last scene hit me hard. So well acted, I'm really liking Claire Danes in this role.

Apparently the first 20 minutes are available online somewhere. I'll wait for the full episode because that watching just 20 minutes and wanting more will be just torture for me.

I just watched the season premiere and loved it. It got off to a bit of a slow start but by the end of the episode I was on the edge of my seat. And that trailer at the end? Amazing!

I agree, it started slow, but it was back to form by the end of the episode.

The critics have seen the first 2/3 episodes and many give it 10/10 http://www.metacritic.com/tv/homeland/season-2
I've never seen so much positivity for a show.

I wonder if we will find out who the mole is though? No mention in the premiere of it...

So glad this show is back..I expect the ratings to be huge as many sampled the show after it swept the Emmys. I loved the daughter's muslim slip up and the reveal to Brody's wife. Also, I really liked how they got Carrie back into the action. Claire Danes really can do no wrong. This season looks amazing.

The first episode was a slow burner, but just like last season it's leading to something big. Loving the new characters. Can't believe Brody is up for VP already or at least possibly. I thought they very believably integrated Carrie back to the CIA. I was wondering how they were going to do that.

Holy fucking crap. Now that's a cliffhanger. This episode was fantastic from start to finish. Best show on TV.

Just amazing and it's only the second episode. What will Saul do with the video? And don't get me started on Carrie going on that search and almost getting killed, but she came up with the goods. I love her.
