Series 2 - 6. A Gettysburg Address

A Gettysburg Address
Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

What’s going on with season two? Having peaked early with those breathless first episodes the writers appear to have run out of road. Suddenly, those well-oiled plot cogs are freewheeling. Brody has been turned and is working with the CIA now. Or is he? Is he a triple agent or a quadruple agent? Ooh, they could string this out for months. The new CIA lunk warns Carrie not to trust Brody, and by some miracle she doesn’t strangle him with a shoelace. As if she isn’t the one person in the world who understands Brody’s dodginess better than anyone.

Meanwhile, Dana is traumatised by that hit-and-run incident with her boyfriend and dear, sweet Mike does some freelance research on Walker’s death.

About this programme

6/12. Dana pays a visit to the hospital and is shocked by what she finds, while Faber attracts the attention of the CIA when he asks one question too many about the fate of Tom Walker. Meanwhile, Brody agrees to work with Carrie and Quinn to stop the attack on America, but his loyalty to the United States is questioned when Gettysburg once again becomes a battleground. Thriller, starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis.
