It's a badass beard though. Makes up for the fact the actor is called 'Mandy'

Is it just me or was someone laying something on the table when Brody started wrasslin' with the Syrian fella? It was at the beginning of the ep when Carrie was looking over the footage.

I'd be a bit disappointed if Saul turned out to be the 'bad guy' tbh. He has no real reason to turn bad.

That you know of. There was mention earlier of history between Saul and Carrie - I thought she'd accused him of something before?

The look Brody gave to the camera before answering 'no' to the unfaithful question was a really cool 'Brody, you magnificent bastard' moment.

Must be something really bad to have turned him into a al-Qaeda mole. I don't thing any that bad happened between them seeing as they are still shown as close.

"Hey Carrie? Fuck you."

Oh, ouch! Poor Carrie, she bet the farm on Brody. I didn't see the Tom Walker thing coming though. Then again, I don't see most things coming, it's why I like mysteries so much.

Also, daughter = biatch.

She really is, isn't she. That window sure was fragile as well

Yeah I also agree that the Tom Walker reveal threw me: which I loved. What came of showing Brody's picture to the white terrorist woman? I have forgotten

Didn't see that one coming either!

And the delivery of the fuck you line was brilliant!

So now Carrie is stuck in her remote cabin with no meds...this can't end well

Damian Lewis is just amazing.

That "I loved him" scene was heartbreaking.

So Brody didn't punch Walker to death then? So, has Brody been tricked into thinking he did - or is he lying?

It really was. I haven't been that blown over by Lewis in this until now: stunning stuff.

That IS the question. Or maybe she gave the wrong person to the sketch artist. Or maybe SHE IS the sketch artist.

I thought the road trip was the best part of that episode, although it's all great. I did expect Saul to say "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepair to die!" when Aileen asked him who he was

He's the best actor in it.

I hate seeing actors pretend to be drunk, it just never looked real and this was no different, also, does nobody in America give a fuck about drink driving?

Saul is incredible.

The only bit I didn't like in yesterdays episode was the bar brawl: was like something out of the Dukes of Hazard. I honestly cringed when the downed nazi said something like " Get that bitch!" Honestly expected a banjo track after that.

Me and the Mrs said the same thing.

I think Brody was convinced he killed his friend. Surely the captors could have easily made him believe that.

Or maybe she knew to give the description of Walker instead of Brody. But then why would she still try to help the Terrorists when they tried to kill her? I'm so confused.

The last few episodes have really kicked up a gear. Really getting under the skin and the level of paranoia is quite expertly maintained. I like the way they took their time with Saul and Eileen instead of the usual rushed 5 min interrogation before she gave in, some great work by Patinkin here. Also Lewis was brilliant in his coming clean scene at the end of the episode. He really did come clean about everything...or did he?

I thought that last scene was one twist too far. Not sure I liked that. The daughter needs to die. Soon hopefully. Can't bear her.

Yeah. That felt a little too "Oh no he di-int" Too schlocky in contrast to the rest of the show. great episode up until hat though.

The final scene caught me totally off guard, which I guess is what atwist is ment to do.
If this fits into an overall plan for the story then it was a cracking twist, but if the writers are just sticking in curveballs for the sake of it ( yes Lost I'm looking at you) then it was a step too far.

It was a great episode. Just when you think you've worked something out, they throw another twist in to catch you off guard. Great performances by all of the actors and along with Games Of Thrones, it is certainly the highlight of my week

This is fast becoming my favourite hour of the week. The story is rather gripping, and i did not see the twist coming at all. It all feels alot more real and relateable than 24 ever did, and I loved 24.

Im still not sure who im supposed to like and favour tho.... Carrie can be annoying, I thought I hated Brody until last night, but the scenes with his wife and the party were convincing me he was nice, and then BOOM, im not on his side yet again.

Cant wait for next week!

Last Sunday was episode eight and there are twelve in total I believe so four more to go.

I was right about Carrie and Brody then, although so was boaby, romantic is not the word I'd use either. I'm still not sure about Saul either, me and my mate's boyfriend were having a chat on facebook about it last night, is it too obvious? It seems it but I keep thinking about the lie detector test and the fact he failed the question about leaking intelligence first time around, I know he had problems outside of the CIA on his mind, but I still think there's more to that and I don't think that's the last we've seen or heard from his wife either, there's going to be a connecting storyline there I feel at some point over the next couple of episodes.

Am I the only one who finds stiletto-wearing, bash-your-balls-in-with-a-hammer ever-so slightly psychotic Clare Danes incredibly hot!?
