'Homeland' showrunner explains that shocking premiere scene

homeland.jpg

Homeland hit the reset button Sunday night with a gripping season 4 premiere that was squarely focused on Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in her new role as CIA’s station chief in Kabul. Though Brody is gone, the memory of Carrie’s departed lover haunted the action as she struggled to cope with a drone bombing that went terribly wrong and deal with her rather severe detachment to her baby, now being raised by her sister back in the States. Below, showruner Alex Gansa takes our burning questions about the premiere, including that shocking bathtub scene.

EW: Carrie was riveting yet scary in these first two hours. Aside from one scene we’ll get to in a moment, she seems very stable and capable, yet also cold and selfish and sort of a terrible person. Is it because she’s emotionally shut down after Brody?
ALEX GANSA: I think that’s exactly right. What she did at the end of last year, arguably sending the man she loved to his death, is something she’s having an incredibly difficult time facing. So she’s compartmentalizing her grief; compartmentalizing her culpability. That has left her in a place where she can no longer deal with her own child, which reminds her of that ever day. It’s also where she’s in a situation where she’s executing orders employing American power and doing it from the minute she gets up to the moment she’s gone to sleep and its had somewhat an anesthetizing effect on her. So I’m not sure she’s a terrible person—she’s carrying out orders, she’s killing bad guys, but as Quinn was quick to point out, it’s not particularly healthy. READ FULL STORY

After a status quo shift in the season 3 finale, Homeland returns for its fourth season on Sunday, Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. Carrie, Saul, and Quinn all look to be moving on from last season. Life hasn’t settled down, however, as season 4 looks to put all three of them in harm’s way yet again.

But did they succeed last year, and at what cost was any of their success? Remind yourself of how things ended with our 60-second refresher:

New 'Homeland' season 4 teaser reveals juicy plot details

Showtime has released a new official trailer for Homeland‘s fourth season, premiering with a double episode on Oct. 5. The action-packed two-minute preview unveils plot details not included in the first two shorter and tamer Homeland teasers, released in July and August.

In the season-three finale, viewers learned that in the aftermath of Brody’s successful counterterrorism mission and subsequent public hanging, Carrie was appointed CIA Station Chief in Istanbul. (Check out EW‘s coverage for season-three recaps and more)The trailer kicks off six months later in Pakistan, and it makes several things clear.

Carrie and Saul are back to co-kicking ass. Carrie and Saul had a rocky relationship last season, to say the least; in the finale, Saul announces he’s leaving the CIA for the private sector. But what is Homeland without Mandy Patinkin? We see Carrie reluctantly accepting longtime friend Saul’s help—it looks like there’s a chance they’ll become the formidable team they once were.

There’s a lot of Corey Stoll. We get a closer look at the dubious role of newcomer Corey Stoll, the Golden Globe-nominated actor known for playing tortured politician Peter Russo on Netflix’s House of Cards. Stoll will play Sandy Bachman, the ambitious CIA Station Chief in Pakistan. Officially billed as a guest star, Stoll’s Homeland appearance looked to possibly be a limited engagement—but the new preview suggests viewers will be playing familiar season-long game of is-he-or-isn’t-he-a-double-agent with Bachman.

Carrie had Brody’s baby. The preview offers a few glimpses of a conspicuously red-haired little one, the baby of the now deceased Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) that Carrie was pregnant with last season. Carrie’s sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) accuses Carrie of finagling her way into a position overseas in order to avoid raising her daughter. Harsh, but not out of character for our embattled protagonist.

The CIA will see the s–t hit the fan again. We see Saul watching a viral YouTube video titled “American Missile Strike on Wedding”—devastating footage of a CIA-led mission, ostensibly a drone strike, that becomes a PR nightmare for the agency.

Quinn is back. But so is Senator Lockhart. Fan-favorite CIA agent Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) returns as Carrie’s coworker, confidante, and sometimes-savior. We see Quinn roughing up a baddie and protecting Carrie from an angry mob. And Tracy Letts is back to being the meddlesome jerk fans love to hate as good old Senator Lockhart.

Carrie is still the same rough-around-the-edges hero. True to form, Carrie is trying to get to the bottom of an epic, terrorism-fueled international mess. She offers to help protect a teenaged Pakistani boy whose family was kidnapped—before yelling at pretty much every single character in the preview.

'Homeland' season 4: Two actors not returning as series regulars

We’ll be seeing less of two members of the Brody family on the fourth season of Homeland, according to a report.

TVLine reports that Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor, who play matriarch Jessica and daughter Dana, respectively, are not returning on a full-time basis to the Emmy Award-winning series in the upcoming fourth season. Showtime has not yet responded to EW’s request for comment.

The move comes as a result of producers’ plans to dial-back storylines involving the Brody family drama, according to the report. But they have both reportedly been invited back on a guest-starring basis.

Baccarin, who just welcomed a son in October, was nominated this year for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category.

Homeland will conclude its third season this Sunday.
