Alicia’s states attorney campaign is getting a mixed reception from viewers but at Binge Central, we are LOVING IT. Between Alicia’s campaign and the target on Cary’s back, this week’s episode took us through the entire spectrum of human emotions.
I am happy to say that things are finally coming together on HTGAWM. Towards the end of the episode, our present day storyline reaches the night of the bonfire, just hours before Sam’s murder and the aftermath. Hopefully next week, in what is apparently the “winter finale,” we will see our flash forwards fully unfold and find out #WhoKilledSam. (Disclaimer: I hate TV hashtags and am using this one ironically).
This show is taking us through a dark and winding path this season. We’re not sure where the show is headed but there’s that feeling that something terrible is going to happen to one of the characters. The only question is who. After this week’s episode, Kalinda seems to be the one with the target on her back.
Surprise! “Homeland” has a trick or two up its sleeve. In the form of a one legitimately surprising and significant development, yes, but also an all-around solid, enjoyable episode of television marred mostly by damage the show has already done to itself this season rather than any specific transgression in this week’s episode.
This episode was enjoyable for many reasons, the first of which was that Finn Polmar was in a lot it but we’ll get to that later. But there’s one question that still sticks in our minds and won’t go away: Why is Alicia running for state’s attorney?
