    How did you read the makeout session between Carrie & Brody? The scene is intentionally left vague & wide open to interpretation.

    • Was Carrie being genuine & expressing her true emotions?
    • Was she manipulating Brody in an attempt to keep him compliant?
    • Was Brody's response an attempt to manipulate Carrie's emotions?

    I have to believe the juxtaposition of Saul having his emotions played with & manipulated by Aileen was meant to foreshadow something in Carrie's situation with Brody.

      he was probably being more genuine than she was.

      The way she looked at him in the middle of the makeout session made me think she was being manipulative, although she undoubtedly does have genuine feelings for him.

      President Barack Obama has made no secret that he's a fan of Showtime's "Homeland." Obama has been singing the Emmy-winning drama's praises since the first season and the cast and network have returned the love for the president.

      While on "The Jonathan Ross Show," "Homeland" star Damian Lewis revealed that they sent Obama a signed DVD set, with each star adding a personal flavor to their signature.

      "Claire Danes had written something really lovely and sweet saying, 'I was a fan of yours long before you were a fan of ours,'" Lewis said. Then he started racking his brain for what he should write. "I went, 'From one Muslim to another' in an indelible Sharpie. I couldn't take it back."

      Lewis said he was writing emails for the next week, hoping the president understood his joke.
