“Homeland’s” sophomore season returns next month, and Showtime has released a new “Brody 2012” trailer focusing on war hero/congressman/terrorist Nick Brody’s (Damian Lewis) vice presidential campaign.
“What happens when your country forgets you?” narrates Mandy Patinkin (Saul) over scenes of Brody’s torture, acceptance of Islam and political campaign — and booted CIA operative Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) mental breakdown.
“Ideas are bound to warp,” continues his voiceover. “Allegiances shift. If everything you had was taken away and you had nothing left to lose, what lengths would you go to for the one idea that pulled you through? And how dangerous would you be?”
Is Saul referring to the secret al-Qaeda sympathizer or the forsaken former CIA operative? Or both?
The teaser’s gripping final scene suggests that Brody’s campaign might have rekindled Carrie’s memories — wiped by her ECT treatment just as she made a connection between Brody and terrorist leader Abu Nazir.
We know how dangerous Brody can be — but what about Carrie?
We’ll find out when “Homeland” returns Sunday, Sept. 30, on Showtime.
