omeland Season 8 Episode 11: The English Teacher aired on April 19, 2020 on Showtime. The Essential DanMachi Moments, Homeland Season 8 Episode 11 Review: The English Teacher. And is the system she represents so heroically on television actually succeeding at anything beyond spinning deadly spy games to their natural, isolating outcome? Den of Geek Gromov counters: “You haven’t done everything… You can still take Saul out of the picture… Then the asset is neutralized.”. And that’s where it is at its best. One imagines Yevgeny and the GRU would even deliver it in such a way so that the White House is publicly forced to see Carrie as the hero—all the better to situate their own mole who’s sold her soul to them. She arranges a call with Yevgeny (Costa Ronin) to report her findings, but not having yet nailed down the asset's identity, Carrie is unable to make a deal for the recorder. Acosta Ronin helps but we also understand how it works in terms of spy's craft. While we can safely assume Saul will still play a critical role in next week’s finale, this episode was clearly meant as a tribute to Saul’s character. Saul denies the existence of the asset.

There’s always some. With two episodes left in the series, it has channeled classic Homeland on the way to the proverbial finish line and suffice it to say that it wasn’t pretty which will inevitably continue come next week’s series finale. Actor Ben Savage, who in this episode portrays Saul Berenson in flashbacks, previously played a younger version of Mandy Patinkin's character Jason Gideon on an episode of Criminal Minds. While Dunne unfortunately remained one-note, Jenna’s small arc added some needed clarity to the final season. This episode saw the return of director Michael Cuesta, who was the series' lead director in its first two seasons. She would also be staying at his house. Saul flies to New York and storms in as the meeting concludes, confronting Ambassador Makarov (Elya Baskin) and loudly demanding Russia's asking price for the flight recorder. With Carrie unable to provide any solid information on the asset, Gromov refuses to budge on the flight recorder. Choose an adventure below and discover your next favorite movie or TV show.

Digital Media Program Coordinator and Professor at Southern Utah University and Southwest Technical College; M.Ed. Дженна начинает представлять реальную угрозу для операции. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured - and that is a problem for Saul, now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner. “I just want to make sure we don’t get hit again.” And yet, here she is being labeled a traitor in all but name and, worse, a fool used by the Russians to hit us harder than any other single terrorist act of the last 19 years. And honestly, she’s the only person I’ve ever known I can say that of… When you’re dealing with Carrie, you have to do what she does. But also reasonably logical and well placed. A few simple adjustments and Homeland’s greatest weaknesses, that of character position pushing at the boundaries of suspension of disbelief and the show’s racism by omission, could have been addressed.
