Duped, Mirov leaves Saul be, and the Americans make their way to their jet. Who knew Ralph Warner would be the stealth hero of Homeland season 7? “If our situation here isn’t resolved,” he warns Warner, “that will change.”, RELATED: Get the lowdown on the Emmys with EW’s new CHASING EMMY podcast. The seventh season of the American television drama series Homeland premiered on February 11, 2018, and concluded on April 29, 2018, on Showtime, consisting of 12 episodes. And as for Paley? And more importantly, for the world of Homeland, does Warner truly want the job? A similar kind of introspection is at the center of the seventh season premiere of Showtime's Homeland. “I let a terrible thing happen,” he begins. So in other words, bring on season 8. Credit: Written by Darin Morgan, the most effective episode of the current season of Fox's The X-Files forced Scully and Mulder to question their very mission within a 2018 world. When Warner visits the embattled Keane, she tells him the truth, about Simone being alive and how Saul’s mission was to retrieve her — but she admits that all she knows now is that something clearly went wrong that led to the violence in Russia. Simone knows she’s being passed off as Carrie, but rightly asks Saul whether he’s okay with leaving Carrie behind. [29] Alex Gansa won the Writers Guild of America Award for Television: Episodic Drama for "Paean to the People" at the 71st Writers Guild of America Awards. She’ll also have to deal with Warner, who’s been asking for a meeting, and Keane says she’s happy to chat with him one last time before they ignore him all over again. Carrie's in a bit of limbo, because she doesn't have President Keane's ear, probably because President Keane has gone full-on Crazy 24 President and her subtle neuroses from the start of last season have bloomed into full-scale paranoia, complete with demanding execution for conspirators in the coup and locking up 200 government and intelligence officials for either ties to the coup or on general suspicion. Something bold must be done. Keane’s there to thank the people who vindicated her, and to assure them that she’s doing “everything” to bring Carrie home. Saul’s smile fades a little as she says that, and so does Max’s. They’re finally close enough for Saul to glimpse Carrie clearly, and he looks dismayed by what he sees: Her hair’s unkempt, she’s off balance, and she appears to have no idea what’s really going on. Again. During their conversation, he tells her she has an opportunity to reach across the aisle and use her planned sanctions against Russia to unify D.C. All she has to do is make those sanctions something devised by her and by Congress, rather than an executive order. We are the ones killing it. Saul and Carrie's mission comes to a close, while Keane makes a difficult decision. He pleads when he and Keane are left alone. “I don’t believe it was against the law, but it was wrong.” Which brings her to the point she wants to hammer home to Americans — and which I tried my best to transcribe: For over 200 years we have had an angel on our shoulder in this country. I spent much of the afternoon with Vice President Warner, who I have come to know as a deeply honorable and decent man. You'll already recall from the finale that Mandy Patinkin's Saul was among those caught in Keane's expanding web. That’s not only unacceptable, but unlikely to change anytime soon. He watches gravely as his side takes the prisoners, including Gorin, toward the Russians, and the Russians come closer with a disheveled Carrie.

[22] For this season, Maury Sterling, Jake Weber and Linus Roache were promoted to series regulars; Sterling has been recurring since the first season, while Weber and Roache both first appeared in the sixth season. And then there's Jake Weber's Brett O'Keefe, a conspiracy-mongering TV provocateur who may be misogynistic and xenophobic and pandering to the worst of American instincts, but whose distrust for Keane has proven to be correct, almost by accident. When she doesn’t say a word, he drops to his knees, begging for her to punish only him.

Instead, it follows Saul as he heads to the shadowy Russian-Estonian border, where the exchange for Carrie is about to take place. He takes her to Yevgeny, who wants to make a deal: She can record a statement — a “confession,” rather, that the entire Simone thing was a CIA exercise, putting the blame back on the U.S. — or she can continue to live in her cell without the meds she needs to stay sane and sober. Paley wonders if the call was about Simone being retrieved, and after learning that she is, he tells Warner that if they do bring Simone back and let her testify, Keane will be allowed back in the office, and she’ll be even more vindictive than before. This time, we’ll likely begin with the opposite, with a lost Carrie working hard to find herself again. The seventh season of the American television drama series Homeland premiered on February 11, 2018, and concluded on April 29, 2018, on Showtime, consisting of 12 episodes. I’m glad the show didn’t save Carrie’s exchange for next season, because this gives Homeland a compelling place to start when it picks back up. The season finale — an intense, powerful installment — opens where the Great Wig Switch left off: with Carrie, dressed as Simone, being driven away by Anson and his grey Mercedes to lead Yevgeny’s men away from the real Simone. | Cookie Settings. Saul’s task force has gathered inside their hideout, and they’re thrilled by what Simone finally says on national television: the truth. It's more muted John Le Carre-esque spook-work than the show's usual melodrama. Entertainment Weekly may receive compensation for some links to products and services on this website. Carrie, meanwhile, had found herself squeezed out of any governmental influence by Keane's steely patrician chief of staff David Wellington (Linus Roache). Many people in our real world struggle with the idea that listing the various news cycles for any given week makes them sound crazy, and the same is true in the world of Homeland. No single leader can save a democracy, but without a leader you can trust, no democracy can be saved. But by the end of this meeting, she looks much less dismissive of her vice president than before. “I got this.”, And she really does. And it feels appropriate: After a season about animosity within America, it would have been far too unbelievable (even more unbelievable than some of the wildest twists and plot holes this season) to have the finale conclude with a sane and safe Carrie. Upheavals of power. She's setting up a meeting. She tells a worried Wellington that she wants to speak to the American people directly and from the heart, and that she’ll wing it — “I’ll let the spirit move me,” she says — once she begins. When we left things, Quinn (Rupert Friend) had heroically sacrificed himself as part of the prevention of the aforementioned coup, which had also stoked President Keane's (Elizabeth Marvel) insecurity. “I wasn’t above using the power of this office to lash out at my enemies,” she admits. No time at all is spent memorializing Quinn, an initial choice that will really irritate a small segment of fans while having no impact at all on me. But when the ambassador arrives in the Oval Office to chat, Warner completely ignores Paley’s treasonous advice. “So, this is the room where it happened,” she muses, while somewhere Lin-Manuel Miranda gives a thumbs up to Homeland‘s writers’ room, probably. The sixth Homeland season had a somewhat similarly contained press rollout and eventually became a season in which an attempted coup on a yet-to-ascend president was orchestrated within the government — so it won't be surprising when the seventh season becomes crazed and global in scale, too. (Next: A presidential homecoming…). She contemplates her role, and the next day, visits her son’s grave. After all, getting Carrie back from Russia isn’t going to be easy. Do this now, and she’ll be able to pass something else down the line.
