Carrie Mathison is living with her daughter Franny in New York. She has left the CIA and she is working as an advocate for Muslim Americans. She is also secretly briefing the President-elect Elizabeth Keane on strategy. Her friend and co-worker Peter Quinn was mentally and physically damaged by a saran gas attack on him in Germany. He was in a VA Hospital but he now living in a basement apartment at Carrie’s residence. Later, he is taken to a safe house and Astrid travels from Germany to take care of him. Dar is working secretly behind the scenes because he believes Keane will be against the CIA when she assumes her presidency.
This is a very taunt series with many story lines and lots of behind the scene sub-plots and it may be the best season ever. Carrie is trying to live a normal life for her daughter but she keeps getting pulled into government activities. Dar is like an evil twin working against everything and everyone. Saul goes to Abu Dhabi concerning the possibility of an alternate hidden nuclear program. Quinn is still very involved in spite of his mental and physical limitations but sometimes he mixes up how he should react to circumstances. Elizabeth Keane could represent Hillary Clinton if she had been elected as President? Of course, the final scene in the final episode leaves you with questions?? 4 ½* (I really liked this series)
