‘Homeland’ season 4 overview: Corey Stoll choice, Claire Danes on Quinn and Saul

The new Homeland, which aired two back-to-back episodes, spent little time remembering the deceased (at least during the first hour), instead shifting its focus to Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) new Islamabad appointment with the CIA.

Of course, things didn’t get off to the smoothest of starts, when a bureau chief played by guest star Corey Stoll was beaten to death in front of Carrie and Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend).

“It was a straight offer to Corey. We had all seen his work on House of Cards and just thought that he would be an incredibly interesting choice. We also needed somebody who was capable of delivering a performance in short amount of space. The minute he appears on screen, he is that guy.”

Star Claire Danes gives an overview of her new relationship in the Brody-free Homeland.

“Quinn and Carrie are at odds with each other. Quinn is eager to get out of the business and is recognizing behavior in Carrie that he himself has had in the past as an assassin—this concern for her that she is drifting to robotic mode. He’s trying to jar her into consciousness and she’s reluctant to engage. Saul is a private contractor. He’s out of the business.”

Fans can rest assured that Saul is still in the picture as well.

“They’re still in touch. He comes to the rescue, which she of course is kind of cranky about. There’s a young asset that Carrie roots in a Pakistani boy, and that becomes a big relationship in the season,” Danes tells In Style.
