I'll Fly Away

Series 2 - Episode 8 I'll Fly Away



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...


The lies that are tangling his relationships with Carrie, Roya and Jessica leave Brody heading for a meltdown as he struggles to keep them separate. Against Quinn's orders, Carrie stages a risky intervention to keep Brody in line, forcing both of them to deal with their conflicted emotions. Meanwhile, Dana turns to an unlikely source for comfort. Starring Damian Lewis, Claire Danes and Morgan Saylor.
