Things Carrie Wore This Week

hellyeahomeland:

…in which Sara lives her best life

OK FRIENDS!! Here we go… I think I chose the wrong week to kick this shiz off because Carrie’s wardrobe was super boring this week. I think she wore four distinct things… and, like, sure, the episode only takes place over about 24 hours but STILL. 

Anyhoozles…

image

So the first thing she wears this week is actually what she wore in her last scene last episode, which is this army green button down, an absurdly expensive leather jacket, and THE SAME DAMN BLACK JEANS SHE’S BEEN WEARING FOR TWO YEARS. Does Carrie own other casual pants? Do you think she just bought five pairs because they fit well and she can’t be bothered? Were they on sale? I’m SO flummoxed by this… we are approaching Jessica Jones blue jean territory, y’all. That is, if we haven’t already encroached it, taken over the land and settled, Oregon Trail stylez. 

SIDE BAR: Claire’s delivery of “this isn’t a house” WAS SO ANGELA CHASE IT IS PHYSICALLY PAINFUL TO ME. SASSY ASS CARRIE MATHISON. I see you!! 

image

PLAID SHIRT. OH MY GOD WHAT IS UP WITH THIS PLAID SHIRT. Has Carrie ever worn plaid? She does dress a lot in navy and blue. It actually looks pretty good on her, though the shirt is about two sizes too large. 

I totally understand the appeal of an oversized plaid shirt… but never in 470,000 years would I think Carrie Anne Mathison would.

(doesn’t she look like a cute lil’ bean up there ^^)

So, yeah, the plaid is also giving me major Angela Chase vibes. It’s just??? So??????? Weird?????????? Who chose this? Every year, I get more confused by Carrie’s wardrobe. I think she owns like ten articles of clothing (five of which must be t-shirts that she wears, in pairs, to bed) and must do laundry constantly.

Though I guess it’s not exactly the right time for her to get a new wardrobe, considering she is drowning in debt. Carrie, WHAT AM I GONNA DO WITH YOU????

This post was getting low on topics because of the aforementioned “Carrie only wore like four things this week” issue so let’s talk for a second about Carrie’s earrings. She wore earrings almost all throughout season one, then did not wear earrings hardly ever in seasons two, three, or four. Then earrings again the last two seasons and this one. It’s usually these small good hoops (whereas in season one it was usually studs). I also don’t understand this. Who can explain it? Also, Claire will forever be the queen of raising eyebrows.

image

So Carrie basically just throws that same leather jacket from the first scene over the OVERSIZED PLAID SHIRT. Do you think she once read about daytime to evening look transitions and thought that all she needed to accomplish that was a $900 leather jacket? I mean… it’s not terrible, by any means. It gets the job done. She did spend most of the day in the back of Max’s van, after all. 

I’m gonna just say that I’m not a huge fan of the leather jacket here. It’s kinda cut too short on her waist and with this (say it again) OVERSIZED PLAID SHIRT it looks weird and awkward to me. 

In conclusion: OVERSIZED PLAID SHIRT. EARRING HABITS. ANGELA CHASE.

Is Carrie’s plaid shirt a nod to Saul? Is it foreshadowing they are back in sync? Am I going to far with my conspiracy theories? 🤣🤣🤣

“Active Measures” | Directed by Charlotte Sieling

“Active Measures” opens with a shocked and silent Saul in the backseat of a car in Richmond, heading to see Brett O’Keefe. The scene is eerily reminiscent of many we’ve seen over the last few years of characters entering war zones or violent protests, from Keane driving through Manhattan last season, to Carrie arriving in Iraq in “All About Allison” to Saul himself driving through a pack of angry protesters in Beirut in “The Smile.” Saul’s face starts just barely lit by the city streets.

As the protests turn violent, his face is illuminated in the rich orange glow of fire and then the cold blue of police sirens.

The next scene between Saul and O’Keefe, which may be their last, was a remarkable reversal from their picnic table meeting just two episodes ago. Again, they’re shown on opposite sides of a table. This time, however, their demeanor and stature have changed. O’Keefe is defeated, handcuffed to a conference room chair, and dealing with the guilt of so much blood on his hands.

image

We talked a lot in the “Standoff” Director’s Chair about the use of long or medium shots depicting both O’Keefe and Saul in the same frame. The device isn’t used in the same way here, but astute viewers will note Saul’s ghost-like reflection hovering in the background.

So much nuance in this episode! Kudos to the amazing women behind it, Episode Director Charlotte Sieling and Writer Debora Cahn. 🙌🏻
