Review by:
David Butcher

There was a moment last week when Brody was swimming in the pool at the wealthy donor’s ranch and for a few seconds he hung there, motionless under water. It was a brief moment of peace for a man who gets little respite.

Brody is being pulled four ways by four different women: Jess wants her husband back; Carrie pressures him to feed the CIA beast; Roya has orders for his next terrorist move; and Dana needs her father to be a fixed point in her teenage world. It’s a lot to juggle and even a liar and dissembler as cool as Brody has his breaking point...
