It’s just England, y’all. I’m still here. Granted, there were a few weeks there where I was preparing for an across-the-ocean move and all that entailed but I’m all settled now, so we can go back to talking about ….. nothing. Oh, about how season 8 doesn’t exist!
Also! This blog benefits greatly from wonderful contributors who are not me or Ashley – Julie, Gail, Frangi, and Angela. I appreciate them so much and all the different viewpoints they offer and work they do.
As you can see the media is no longer available. I think they must be on the S3 DVDs but I donated all my Homeland DVDs to charity when I moved so I have no actual way of confirming that theory and my memory is not serving me in this particular moment.
(The video literally only shows like 4 seconds of the alternate take. It’s not like the alt kiss where we got a full scene.)
I offered my explanations for the meanings of all episode titles back in February. See here.
Another possible explanation, from this post, is that it’s a reference to Aayan and Brody, which especially makes sense considering how Aayan died and Carrie’s hallucination of Brody just one episode later.
I’m entirely unconvinced that it will air this calendar year.
Of course I recognize that they have been filming in Morocco but like……….. I have so many weird feelings about the complete lack of any information coming from Showtime about what has been their flagship show for almost the past ten years and it all just feels super fishy to me. It feels entirely unlike any past season’s production, I’ll say that. And they have never been spoiler-conscious over there so I don’t think that has anything to do with it.
#NeverForget the time the producers attempted to de-age Claire 10 years by just putting her hair in a half ponytail. We do not know why Carrie’s only hairstyle in the year 2005 is this half pony. I have NOTHING against a half ponytail. I love to rock one. It’s just… funny. Carrie, what happened to you?
Carrie’s pilot hair is obviously much different than the rest of her season one hair. It’s a bit darker, a bit wavier, a bit more layered.
THIS HAIR MOMENT CANNOT BE MATCHED.
If you thought I wasn’t gonna show some hair-in-hat…
Carrie’s early season two hair is basically just her season one hair, only a tad darker.
This is another hair moment that cannot be matched.
I can’t put my finger on why I’m not a huge fan of Carrie’s late season two hair. But here it is and I’m not a huge fan.
Imagine being stuck in a psych ward for three weeks, wearing two t-shirts (as you do), and your hair still looks this good. This photo series is also a #journey for her eyebrows.
Carrie’s mid-season three hair is my absolute least favorite. It’s just very… whatever. Carrie and Quinn sitting identically here is a trip, though.
And yet Carrie’s late season three hair is next level. GO BRUNETTE, CARRIE. THIS IS YOUR LOOK.
We love a layer!
And then she just lets it grow out and it’s only marginally better than mid-season three.
Her early season five hair is actually great. A little more golden, with some nice layering and a slight wave.
I really don’t know how Carrie’s hair always seems to look great even when she’s in the worst of situations but it does!!!
This is also a good look for when the dude who bankrolled your NYC lifestyle and career comes around to propose to you again and you have to tell him no thanks and also to fuck off for calling your life small potatoes when HE IS THE POTATO.
Another in the “look how neatly my hair is parted” series.
I really do love Carrie’s entire season six aesthetic. Short hair, jeweled-tone sweaters. It is legitimately the one good thing about that trash bag of a collection of twelve episodes.
Carrie lets her hair grow a bit in season seven and we’re back to season five length/look/color. She looks good!
Carrie’s post-Russia hairstyle is purposefully excluded from this series because I Don’t Need That In My Life.
