If you didn't watch last night's Homeland because you were too busy watching the same hurricane news repeated over and over again for hours, stop reading now!
Last night's episode of Homeland was pretty good, right? It answered the question of where does the show go from here pretty well, with Brody possibly switching sides and working for the big bad CIA after being cornered by Crazy Carrie and the frown gang. The two had a tense, terrific, emotional scene together in the interrogation room and then the show did what it does best, elegantly zagging when you thought it might zig, giddily pulling us along with it down a new dark corridor. So, well done, Homeland. You make Showtime proud.
And yet. And yet, this is still Showtime we're talking about, so nothing can be HBO-level perfect. Amidst all this wonderful Carrie/Brody pas de deux-ing, we got the answer to the Dana/Finn/Xander love triangle, and of course wise old Dana chose Finn. Because he's the cute dangerous one with the cool car. The one who picks her up in said cool car and recklessly shakes his Secret Service tail (he is the VP's son, after all) and then... Well, you know where this is going. In a moment of stupidity that rivals the great Landry/Tyra oopsy of Friday Night Lights season two, the writers chose to have Finn run over a lady and then drive away. Yeah, we're doing that tired old plotline. To which I say: Really, guys?
