homeland | the final countdown | “grace”
“If Carrie, ostensibly the hero of the show, continues to get sketchier and sketchier, Brody remains a fascinatingly sympathetic character even as he seems increasingly guilty of everything Carrie suspects.” –Scott Collura

Ehhh, not quite. 

Maybe Nicolle needs a Saul.

I think my favorite line on Homeland is Carrie answering the phone by saying “I can’t talk to you”–which, let’s face it, it objectively amazing–followed closely by 
“well, coming from someone who fucked a guy in a suicide vest, that means a lot.” 

Oh, also when Carrie said “Carl.” 

Unbelievable on Netflix was incredibly, incredibly good. Not a spy show per se but a really well-crafted thriller starring our lords and saviors Toni Collette and Merritt Wever. Oh and Kaitlyn Dever.

“From the day you were born, you’ve had a mind of your own. You never listened to anyone, even when you were little. You used to wave at planes, remember? And I would say, ‘Who are you waving at? They can’t see you!’ But you would just keep on waving. You were always so fearless, too, my God. I hated you for that. Why was I scared all the time? How come you got to be the brave one?”
