Carrie and Brody finally reunite and Saul offers him 'a chance to be the man you were before they broke you.'
Can Brody redeem himself after what he did to his country? In a preview for the new episode of "Homeland", Saul appears to have a plan for Brody to serve his country again. "We both know what you've done. We both know what you are," Saul says as Brody lays on his bed.
"I'm offering you a chance to be the man you were before they broke you. You will do this one last thing," Saul continues, while the scenes show Brody in what seems to be a military training. What Brody's mission is should he accept it remains to be seen next week.
Meanwhile, he and Carrie reunite under difficult circumstances. Saul gets a win from an unlikely source, and Dana struggles with her new life.
"Horse and Wagon" will air Sunday, November 24 at 9 P.M. ET/PT on Showtime.
The Hollywood Reporter has asked showrunner Alex Gansa if Brody's return, after being locked up in the Venezuelan cell, means there will be more scenes featuring his family. "Should I touch the third rail? I don't think so. [laughs] People can wait and see for themselves," he coyly answers.
On how long Brody was locked up, he says, "You know, that's an open question, but I would say a couple of months at least."
Speaking of the urgency of Saul's plan with Brody, Gansa explains, "Senator Lockhart's [Tracy Letts] confirmation hearings are coming up, and he's a shoo-in to be confirmed. He will shortly become the director of central intelligence. Saul knows, because of their huge philosophical divide about the future of the agency, that he has to get this operation up and running before Lockhart comes in. Otherwise, he'll put the breaks on the whole thing for him. The fact that Brody is in such bad shape is a huge setback for him."
