The Clearing

Series 2 - Episode 7 The Clearing



Don’t give up on Homeland just yet. Yes, series two has been up and down, but when it’s up, it remains a thing of wonder. Our CIA team got a shock at the end of the last episode, and frankly so did we. Reeling from that, Carrie and co are on the back foot, scrambling to regain the initiative. It puts Brody under pressure from both sides. “You’re going to have to play a larger role now,” terrorist contact Roya tells him. “Things are going to move very quickly.” But towards what?

Meanwhile, poor, anguished Dana longs to come clean about the hit-and-run accident she had while she was with boyfriend Finn. Which would be so much easier if he wasn’t the vice-president’s son.


Reeling from the recent ambush, Carrie and the team struggle to regain control of the operation. Saul visits Aileen Morgan in solitary confinement, hoping she will provide key intelligence on this latest attack. An anguished Dana presses Finn to come clean about the hit-and-run, but her quest to tell the truth collides with her father's secret mission, and has serious consequences.
