Homeland: The Only Good Use for Death Metal (OH EXCUSE US: "NOISEGRIND")

“Blind Spot”

Brody’s Islamic tendencies weren’t just a one-time comfort. He’s in the garage bowing to Allah again this week. This still doesn’t mean he’s a terrorist. Again, we think this means that he WON’T be a terrorist, because that wouldn’t be politically correct. Brody got to see some of the interrogation of one of his former guards who beat him and then peed on him. Well, that was extremely rude. Team Brody here. No one should ever pee on anybody, unless the other person specifically requests it or was stung by a jellyfish.

During the interrogation, Saul got a dig at Catholics in, and we did not think it was clever. That was so hundreds of years ago anyway. Carrie gave Brody her digits in case he needs to talk. She’s a real sweetheart to his face. Watch Brody fall for Carrie. That would be something. Watching Jessica try to connect with this guy is just depressing. We don’t like her haircut. She looks too much like she did in V, and that’s going to distract us.

The psychology and family stuff is just as interesting to watch as the homeland security and terrorist plot stuff. This surprised us, because we were wary when we first met Carrie’s family, and tons of people think that Jess and her kids are little more than a distraction. But we find it cool to see Carrie’s soft side and Brody’s struggle to resume a normal life. This is good stuff. This isn’t Kim Bauer getting stuck in a cougar trap, even though this episode reminded us of 24 more than any of the others. We think it’s about time that the affair is spoken of though. Everyone knows, so out with it.

Brody talked his way into getting a face-to-face meeting with his guard. Brody came across as pathetic in the confrontation, and we were disappointed. If he is good, we wanted to see a powerful moment. If he is bad, well, then that was all part of the plot to slip the baddie a razor blade. Just when we were starting to think Brody is most definitely innocent, the Professor gets a tip off that the government is onto him, and the guard is able to kill himself with a razor blade he somehow got.

Carrie suspects Brody, of course. She lost her cool with Saul trying to get him to bring her theory about Brody to the higher-ups. She always loses it around Saul, huh? Then she quit her job, but we think she will be back. We still freaked out a little bit, because we like watching Carrie do her job. Then we wised up and realized she could never stop investigating Brody, or there would be no show. Shudder. The horror. Fortunately, we will have this show for at least another season.

We think the coolest ending for this mystery is to have Brody turn out to be a terrorist but then turn back to our side after he heals a bit. That way we can have our cake (he’s good) and eat it too (he’s a terrorist/Carrie’s right). We are starting to like Carrie and dislike Brody. Brody always acts like a prideful douchelord and Carrie really cares about preventing deaths and keeping her nieces safe. Team Carrie, even if she’s a little crazed.

Episode grade: A

  1. Fuck you for that headline. First of all that wasn't death metal, that was noisegrind, something pretty different for people who have a clue and also I think it's quite rude to reduce a style of music I'm quite sure you almost know nothing about like that. Death metal is one of the most challenging styles to play and as someone who listens to deathmetal, grindcore and a lot of other completely different genres of music I've got to say that such headlines just piss me off.

  2. Calm your tits. We were joking. And not about anything SERIOUS either. God. It's like we said we loved Hitler or something in the headline.

    Also, we saw another internet blog call it death metal. We googled it because we didn't know what it was. We didn't come up with the erroneous words. But now we have been corrected. Noisegrind. Sounds like an appropriate term for the total crap we heard on the show.

    Now, go call your mom to bring you a grilled cheese down to the basement and that will brighten your mood.

  3. Did death metal save your mother or something? No? Then please find a better, less abrasive way of getting your point across. As you are aware, we know little about death metal or noisegrind (or similar kinds of music), so it shouldn't come as a surprise that we made a mistake. We're sorry.

  4. I'm not sorry. In fact, I think this whole incident has made me like myself more.
