Homeland Season 2
Now in its second season, Homeland makes its triumphant return after winning six Emmy Awards! Marine Sgt, Nicholas Brody (Lewis) is now a Us congressman and former CIA agent Carrie Matheson (Danes) returns to her civilian life under the protection of her family. Unwilling to let Brody’s possible deception go, Carrie begins piecing together clues and threats that could lead to a terrorist attack on the United States. Once again, Carrie and Brody’s lives (and hearts) are tangled in a delicate dance of desire, deceit and suspicion. Can Carrie stop the terrorist attack on the United States with the CIA against her? Can Marie Sgt, Nicholas Brody untangle his confused patriotism and decided which side he’s on, while keeping Carrie at an arms distance? No matter what decision they make, all roads point to CANADA.
I was addicted to this series from the start. At first, I thought it was going to be your typical government TV show, like West Wing, but it was so much more. Secrets, lies and plots of treason, are only beginning. When you add in the need for justice and the confusion to which side you are on, you have an award winning show. The fast paced action bounces you from scene to scene leaving you to clueless to what would happen next. The love-deception romance between Carrier and Brody is an emotional roller coaster that tugs at the heart strings and scares you to death at the same time. I love guessing what will happen next, knowing the plot can change directions at any moment. From the electric season 2 premiere to the jaw dropping season final, I was hooked. Will the United States be able to stand tall when there is an enemy among them? Will Carrie ever find the love she so desperately wants? Is Canada the answer?
If you haven’t seen this series and love suspense, action and political turmoil, this series is for you. Check out Season 2 of Homeland on DVD and Blue ray available NOW!
