The other one's nearly full, so here we go with Carrie & Brody, St Saul of Snacks and our theories of What Happens Now.

Quinn is English. Who knew?

Fiderer Wed 19-Dec-12 16:25:12

I only did thanks to the other thread. Also that Estes is.

I still think there was a reluctance (in the trailer) on Quinn's part about killing Brody. Then again, the writers and trailers like us to think one way any then something unexpected happens.

Which makes me think. Brody/DL is not leaving so he won't die and his death/survival cannot be the cliffhanger. So I reckon again something unexpected will happen.

it will be something linked to Saul I think. Saul will do something about Brody - maybe warn Carrie.

Quinn used to go out with Keira Knightley in real life.

HalleLouja Wed 19-Dec-12 16:39:04

This whole 7 seasons thing is a red herring. Someone posted somewhere that they can still leave but may need to come back for flashback scenes etc.

Fiderer Wed 19-Dec-12 16:41:34

True enough Halle - hadn't thought of that. Still don't think they'll kill off Brody or Carrie yet. Or Saul. Not with an eye on the ratings anyway.

Having seen the finale, I can´t possibly comment on what might happen!

Do hope Quinn is in the next series though.

Just marking my place smile
It's no good watching it before everyone else, I can't talk about it sad

diddl Germany Wed 19-Dec-12 16:45:53

I could talk to you, cocogrin

HalleLouja Wed 19-Dec-12 16:46:12

So Quinn might be in the next series [ponders]

gypsyfloss Wed 19-Dec-12 16:55:07

Am watching it right now grin

gypsyfloss Wed 19-Dec-12 16:55:57

We could have a splinter early watchers group smile

Settles down and awaits Sunday night. Have an idea of how this might all end. Only shares with DH so far. He is so not interested in my theories!

cocolepew United States Wed 19-Dec-12 17:18:30

grin

gypsyfloss Wed 19-Dec-12 17:36:57

That was excellent. St Saul was superb.

MulledPinot Wed 19-Dec-12 17:44:51

In the last 2 weeks I've watched S1 box set and S2 on 4OD. It has been my life !!

shock @ thoughts of Saul being moleymolerson. Nooooooooo. Maybe.

Series 3 is going to be about POTUS. Big actor lined up, I reckon. That's my theory anyway.

am enjoying al the theories (both here and elsewhere on the internet) and seeing who is right and who is wrong and who might be right but because it's Homeland we don't actually know

Fiderer Wed 19-Dec-12 17:54:58

Calm down, Pinot lovey grin

I watched all of S1 in a long up-half-the-night unputdownable just-one-more episode weekend. Was brilliant but before they'd been shown here so missed all the "who mole" "eh?" fun of the thread.

I have slipped once this series and watched ahead, so to speak, but it does ruin the theorising here so am being very restrained about the finale.

St Saul is most definitely a Good Egg. And I'm wavering about Quinn. Sure he's black ops but I think as he's not Estes' man, he may have a different agenda.

donnie Wed 19-Dec-12 17:56:32

well done! just marking my place too.

I hope St Mandy of Patinkin features heavily in the last episode because he was very absent last week sad having been fucked over by the dastardly Estes.

I have a new theory - what if Jessica manages to get hold of Carrie to demand the truth about THAT mad slanging match (in series 1 where she knows Brody is going to kill the veep but doesn't know how, and makes Dana call him just before he detonates his suicide vest). Then the whole truth unravels.....................

BTW Mamaus, another recommendation for you : in The Line of Duty; a fantastic BBC cop series which was on a while back. Really excellent.

donnie Wed 19-Dec-12 17:58:51

it does not seem to be available on DVD as yet but I just checked and it's still on iplayer !!!!

onedev Wed 19-Dec-12 18:09:17

Just marking my place & looking forward to the season finale grin

cornycarrotshack Wed 19-Dec-12 18:17:08

perhaps something will happen to Brodie's family, so it would then look weird if Brody was topped off when he was with Carrie rather than with his family. They're surplus to the storyline now I think. Brody has chosen Carrie.

I can't believe that his family would just be allowed to move back home like that without protection anyway.

I have always thought that Estes was a bad 'un though.
