Carrie Mathison + season seven smiles | requested by anonymous
HOMELAND | “Paean to the People” | One Liners
Girls! GREAT finale podcast! can you tease us anything about the special one you tweeted about? Will you have more podcassts over the summer?PLEASE?!?!
Here’s what I’ll tease… as soon as I get my act together and edit the thing, we had a LOVELY chat with one of the cast members on this season.
Carrie Mathison in Homeland Season 7
↳ “At the conclusion of an arc in which our heroine confronted herself, we’re left to wonder what remains of that self, and maybe the lesson of this entire roller coaster ride is that Homeland has always been set, first and foremost, in the space between Carrie’s ears.” –Matt Brennan
Homeland + “Terminal 7”
↳ “This piece of music that’s playing over this is Tomasz Stanko, who’s a Polish trumpeter. And it’s a piece called “Terminal 7.” And it really kind of… when we discovered this piece of music, we just knew we were going to use it somewhere. We didn’t know how or where we were going to do it. But it’s kind of Carrie’s theme.” –Alex Gansa

↳ “There’s a long gap between writing, ‘Carrie smiles’ on the page and whatever it is that [Claire] Danes does, which suggests both the many ways in which Carrie’s brain is prone to breaking, as well as why she had never been able to avoid this life for too long. She likes it too much, and on some level, deep down, that’s destroying her. She’s conscious of that fact now, but she’s also unable to resist the pull of her old life as a spy. No matter how long she’s been away from it, it’s always with her. No matter how much she struggles to become “Kate Morrissey,” she’ll always know exactly what she’s doing when she’s out in the field. Having something become second nature can be a curse as well as a blessing.” –Todd VanDerWerff
