    I read that it was not Arabic, it was the Jewish Kaddish prayer for the dead. And there is a 0% chance that Saul is a mole or in anyway a bad guy... he represents everything "good" in the show. He and Dana are basically moral compasses for Carrie and Brody.

    But how awesome was Saul's grin at the very end of the show when he turned around and saw Carrie? Mandy Patinkin is fantastic.

    Read the prayer was in Hebrew this morning. That shoots that theory.

    Re: Homeland

    I think they bring Dar Adal and Quinn into play next season, with Quinn's struggle about what if he had shot Brody, while Carrie attempts to clear Brody's name.

    Interestingly, Brody is the only one I could see actually being bad again of the current characters (he didn't actually ask Dana to come with). I think there will be a lot of evidence stacked against him this time, but ultimately he didn't do it. I'm sure the Walden thing will come out, via Saul guessing correctly in a conversation with Carrie.

    The only thing I was really disappointed in was that Estes bit it, but I get it since he had more or less been neutralized by Quinn. I think the Quinn scene was necessary as the file on Saul had to be redacted so that he could be put in charge of the CIA next season. The only way to do that was to change Etes' mind somehow, and the Quinn scene was masterful. (and like I mentioned earlier, I think it's going to play a huge part in the next season).

    Overall, I thought this season was spectacular. Tons of action and events occurred but were well organized to maintain the premise of the show (who is Brody?).

    Are you saying Quinn is a bad guy, I think he is and the mole. I think he saw Brody praying and thought he may still be on his side and that is why he didn’t do anything.

    Re: Homeland

    Did they officially shoot down the Muslim American kid that works for the CIA, the one that they thought had hid Nazir in his trunk? He's been on the show since day 1. If he shows up next season i say it's him.

    I think that it's starting to point to Quinn as well. It was odd that he didn't shoot Brody until you might put it into context that he still has a patsy as a Muslim sympathizer who was undoubtedly going to the funeral.

    Re: Homeland

    I think the story with Quinn will be how he cares for Carrie, but may be assigned to kill Brody or even her after the last episode. (maybe he isn't assigned, but rather takes it on himself like he was about to do with Estes). More likely I see him trying to win Carrie over Brody since Brody's wife is basically out of the picture.

    Not sure about the mole, but doubt that he or she will be Muslim Too predictable. It'll be someone who is greedy or has family in danger somehow...

    Grantland has a great recap of the last episode/season:

    Why would Quinn even line Brody up in his sights if he was not going to shoot him?

    Re: Homeland

    Have only seen seasons one and two and loved them. The show seems to lack for budget in comparison to Game of Thrones, and it is really far fetched at times, but the acting is awesome.

    When I found out Saul was the guy from The Princess Bride it made me like it even more.

    I wasn't all that surprised that Brody died. I feel like that was long over due. I actually somewhat expected him to be dead when Saul when to Columbia to get him. The love connection between him and Carried grew old with me. Especially since Carrie started the show as a BAMF but anytime Brody was brought up she turned into a puddle of goo. I'll be more interested to see if they bring Saul back next year or what role he'll play. He was by far my favorite character.
