'Homeland': Brody's dead and Carrie's super pregnant

Sunday night marked the Season 3 finale of Homeland , and Brody's done for, Carrie is headed to Istanbul after a big promotion, and Saul is now working for a private company in New York. Some loose ends were tied. Some possible Season 4 plot points were foreshadowed. And some Panama hats were worn. But which character was the most melodramatic this week? Let's tally it up:

  • Brody cleans up the blood with the same pillow he murdered with and then cleans his hands with drinking water. Seems a little too convenient. (Brody: +50)
  • And now he just sticks a gun in his pants. The body is behind a desk. Excellent self-extraction plan… what?! They're just letting him go? (Brody: +100)
  • There's some stern yelling. Dude was really upset about getting the badge back from Brody. (Brody: +10)
  • And… there's a body. (Iran: +10)
  • Saul, is real mean. "There will be no negotiating your release." (Saul: +10)
  • Poor driver. So stern and majestic in the face of a gun. (Iran: +10)
  • Does Brody think he can just blend in walking around a park in Iran?! Carrie too? What is this? (Brody: +50, Carrie: +20)
  • Javadi needs Brody to be put on trial in order to secure power. (Javadi: +100)
  • It's Saul's last full day as director. Daw. (Saul: +10)
  • Saul: "Initiate the extraction plan!" You're not heartless! (Saul: +100)
  • All the Brody blowing up the CIA, supposedly, would break Brody's papa's heart. Daw. (Brody: +25)
  • 210 minutes for Black Hawks to get to Carrie. (Carrie: +25, Brody: +25)
  • So… how are these safe houses just established? Do they just pop up? Is it like finding out about a kegger? (Carrie: +50, Brody: +50)
  • They're off to see the wizard… tonight! (Carrie: +50, Brody: +50)
  • Brody: "I never expected to get this far, so I don't think about it… this was about redemption, mine." He's feeling some guilt about killing again, even if it's a really bad guy. (Brody +100)
  • Carrie: "I'm four months pregnant, from our time at the lake." (Carrie: +20)
  • Oh no. She's talking about being put on the earth for her path to cross with Brody's. Cuckoo for coco puffs! (Carrie: +100)
  • And Brody doesn't think it is crazy? (Brody: +150)
  • But Carrie watching over him. Definitely crazy. (Carrie: +200)
  • Are they going to leave the safe house without blowing out the candles? (Carrie: +20, Brody: +20)
  • It's an ambush! They've picked up Brody and Carrie's just left to hang out. (Brody: +500)
  • A sentimental idea, that people are more important than a mission. Sad face. (CIA: +250)
  • When did Carrie get back to Tehran? (Carrie: +25)
  • Brody has been sentenced to death by hanging… with a public hanging scheduled. Just before morning prayer. Is that sentimental? (Brody: +400)
  • Javadi: "It was always about him… that's what you care about." Carrie loves Brody. And man, Javadi is slick. (Javadi: +100)
  • Brody: "I want it to be over." (Brody: +50)
  • Carrie just doesn't listen. He asks that she not see him die — not such a crazy request. (Carrie: +10)
  • And we get some Carrie Cry Face(™) (Carrie: +25)
  • Girl just can't stay away, can she? Really? Why does she think nobody will notice that she's not Iranian? (Carrie: +50)
  • Public executions were real in the past, but really, who wants to go to this kind of thing? (The Human Condition: +500)
  • Guess this means Brody's dead. Omg. That death rattle is real ugly. (Brody: +100)
  • Carrie, why are you there and why do you think screaming out is okay? (Carrie: +250)
  • And we jump ahead four months. And Saul seems real happy to be in a Panama hat. (Saul: +100)
  • Lifting of economic sanctions and allowing inspectors into Iran. What?! It's that easy? (Iran: +250)
  • Carrie is seeing Lockhart. And she's being offered Station Chief position in Istanbul. And she's real pregnant. (Carrie: +100)
  • No commemorative star for Brody. Sad face. (Brody: +100)
  • And… Quinn is hanging out. He and his cheekbones are just everywhere. (Quinn: +10)
  • Carrie: "I just didn't think it through." The baby. Yes. It's a little late now. (Carrie: +300)
  • Quinn fucked up his child. Sad face… (Quinn: +50)
  • Saul, is he going to get asked back into the CIA? (Saul: +10)
  • Carrie is really pregnant. And there's so much stuff… "I can't keep her." Oh noes. (Carrie: +100)
  • Carrie's Dad: "You're not leaving this kid, not like what your mother did to you." Whoa! Wait! Where did this come from? (Carrie: +200)
  • Carrie: "I don't feel love. All I feel is scared… sad, I feel so fricking sad." (Carrie: +300)
  • Lockhart: "They are our heroes. They are America's heroes." And Brody isn't one of them. Sad face… (Brody: +50)
  • Saul's Visitor Pass. Aw. (Saul: +10)
  • It's like a high school graduation with all the hugs going around. (Carrie: +5, Saul: +5)
  • Carrie is defacing the CIA! With a Sharpie! (Carrie: +30)
  • And have you heard? Jessica and Dana won't be returning as series regulars next year. Yes, time to use your best Dana Brody lines now. (Dana: +100)

Shocked by the series' end? How will Season 4 survive without Brody?
