I’ll show interest in recording a new podcast episode when the producers of Homeland show interest in making a new season.


Amy Hargreaves to appear in Homeland season 8

To our anonymous asker… you asked, she answered. Maggie Mathison will be back in Homeland season 8. 

Amy Hargreaves: “I’m thrilled to be able to play Maggie again before the show rides off in the sunset.”

She couldn’t say anymore about what Maggie will be up to. 

At the end of season 7, Maggie took custody of Carrie’s daughter Franny as Carrie left for a CIA mission in Russia. As we all know, that didn’t end well for Carrie… so we expect that Maggie’s storyline will have plenty of suffering, anger, and nagging (even though she is the most virtuous of all characters).

Friend’s Fashion

     Now, I did a post a couple of weeks ago compiling some of RF’s more questionable looks- but let’s be honest – dude could wear a potato sack and be the most beautiful in the room. 

    Rupert has most certainly streamlined his style within the past few years. He’s gone neutral, he’s gone minimal and although every now and then we’ll see a pattern or pop of color, he has seriously turned the tide with his fashion game.


Because of this picture, I bought 3 grey beanies that fall 18′/winter 19′ season. 


This look is so old school classic. In this suit he could be teaching medieval studies at Cambridge in 1923 or a guest on the James Corden show, It works for both!


Tailored, pressed, perfect. 


This jacket is so lit it needs its own seat on a plane. 


Traveling in style. So simple, so sexy.

Amy Hargreaves On Showtime’s ‘Homeland’:

Amy talks about having a good time on Homeland set and the Maggie/Carrie relationship which obviously makes her emotional. 😉 

“When I went back last season it’s like coming back home again to like a really great group of people. And ultimately the play with Claire, you know that we were able to share the scenes with her, is so special. She’s so fantastic and so talented and a lovely person. It’s just, I was thrilled. […]
I’m gonna cry, it makes me so upset. I don’t know. It’s hard for me to talk about it. It’s just, it’s a complex relationship. I have siblings. So I know a messy family, like a good messy family. But like a big family. I don’t know, I just don’t know how I’m able to put my finger on it but you know Maggie, the sister who is no fun, is the person who just always has to come in… Our mother, kind of bailed a long time ago, dad was kind of like a little bit manic… and then there is Claire’s character of Carrie who shares his kind of bipolar kind of stuff, so Maggie is the only kind of holding the back in the family. She always had to be the responsible one and it weighs on her. And it’s a lot.”

When I started reading this I thought you were going to be like, “Just started season three I hope nothing bad happens to Carrie/Brody!!” So I’m pleasantly surprised that you’re on season five. 

As for Carrie/Brody… phew, that’s a doozy. Personally I have a lot of nostalgia for them. Not in a way that I romanticize what was objectively a very toxic and disturbing relationship. More because, like you, I thought their relationship was really rather special and unusual and–in seasons 1 and 3, parts of 2–I loved that the show leaned into that toxicity. Also, the chemistry between Claire and Damian was really undeniable.

In recent years, there has been some ~controversy~ about whether Brody was the love of Carrie’s life and/or whether Carrie ever got over him. For the former, I think it’s objectively true that he was. On the latter, I believe she didn’t but it could probably be argued either way. 

There’s less of an emphasis on the Carrie/Brody relationship as seasons go on (compared to season 4 at least), but there are some very interesting references to him in season 6 and I think this presence/absence informs so much of why Carrie is the way she is.
