As Carrie Mathison tries to start fresh and ventures into a new profession in another location, there will still be threats lurking around her which may see her going back to being a CIA agent when season five of “Homeland” premieres.
The official synopsis revealed by Showtime reads, “The game has changed for Carrie Mathison. Out of the CIA and living in Berlin, Carrie is trying to start a new life but realizes now she’s the one with a target on her back. As the danger intensifies, and without Saul and Quinn to rely on, one thing becomes clear: she’s never been at greater risk or with more to lose.”
A previous report shared that there will a two-year time jump from the events of last season’s finale. Carrie played by Claire Danes has moved to Berlin, Germany and become an investigator to a private firm owned by a billionaire philanthropist. She will also try to become a mom and raise her young child Francesca from late partner Nicholas Brody, on her own, while her new boyfriend Jonas Happich also works in the same German security company.
Meanwhile, Quinn portrayed by Rupert Friend seems to resort back to his old ways of taking the lives people as an assassin. The season trailer showcased him talking to Mandy Patinkin’s Saul Berenson that he is willing to do whatever it takes for the mission to be successful, “If the name is in the box, I will take care of anything you put there,” he said in the video. He was reportedly last seen leaving for Iraq as his heart was broken.
However, Quinn finds out that Carrie’s name was included and warned her, “Someone wants you dead.”
Moreover, several promotional images released by the network shows that Carrie will have some sort of reunion with his former boss Saul. It is deemed however that it may not be a good one as the former ditched Carrie for Dal Adal for a higher position.
Homeland new season premieres on October 4, 9pm ET/PT.
