John Peter Quinn deserves better than Carrie. So much better.
[…] A similar discussion rages about “Homeland” ’s Carrie Mathison, a mentally ill C.I.A. agent who nearly drowned her baby in this season’s first episode, an incident that some online fans (again, both male and female) felt made it impossible to root for her—an interpretation grounded in the idea that we must root for her, rather than merely feel for her.
Interesting piece by Emily Nussbaum that makes me reconsider my position that if Carrie does anything more fucked up on this show no one will be able to root for her and the show is DOOMED.
I enjoy Homeland for the stories. I don’t “root” for Carrie. Sometimes I like her, sometimes I don’t. I never liked Brody and it didn’t stop me from watching. I don’t have to root for the characters to enjoy the story.
I can understand how people can be afraid of this clown, it’s makeup is a little bit unsettling, but besides that, it’s just a regular clown for a birthday party, or whatnot.
THIS FUCKING CLOWN IS THE MOST MENACING MOTHERFUCKER I’VE EVER SEEN AND YET SOMEHOW EVERYONE IS JUST LIKE “HELL YEAH LET’S INVITE THIS BITCH INTO OUR HOUSE LIKE HAHA SO NOT SCARY LET’S NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT THE FACT THIS
OR LIKE YOU KNOW HAHAAH THAT
You’ve made my day!
So now Peter Quinn loves Carrie, like I knew there was some kind of mutual understanding sort of weird closeness/friendship between them, but when did he fall in love with her?, like o.O
It was obvious Peter Quinn deeply cared for Carrie but episode 403 was a bit too “in your face”.
Ever since Brody (Damian Lewis) left us, the idea of Peter (Rupert Friend) and Carrie (Claire Danes) becoming a couple has strengthened. Whilst many may disagree with this pairing, as I explained in my review from last week, they are actually more compatible than one may believe. This week we see Peter and Carrie go through their own separate struggles yet the writers cleverly bring them together in the end.
Spoilers are included in this review.
I like Quinn a lot more than I like Carrie. In fact, I love Quinn while I find Carrie to be an interesting character but I don’t like her that much. So I don’t ship Carrie & Quinn. I’m not against them. I’ve enjoyed them so far and they make more sense than Carrie & Brody, but I don’t ship them. I’m 100% Team Quinn.
The minute Peter Quinn showed up on my screen in season 2, I knew I was gonna like him. I just had a gut feeling. Then he stabbed Brody in the hand and he became my favorite character on Homeland! Then he was shot and left for dead. And I panicked in a “deer caught in headlights” kinda way. Like mild anxiety or something. I couldn’t stay spoiler free anymore. I had to find out if Quinn would survive. And he did.
He’s still my favorite on Homeland. Love him.
I don’t ship Carrie and Quinn. I enjoy them but I don’t ship them. I’m 100% Team Quinn.
Anonymous asked: OMG that's right Quinn is gonna be living in the embassy. But wait is Quinn heading back to the CIA? or is he part of the secret group with Fara and Max? Are Fara and Max livin at the embassy? If Quinn's livin at the embassy he should just go live with Carrie, did you see her apartment it's freakin huge.
Well I assumed he would be working like Carrie with both teams because he was stationed in Islamabad before he has a legitimate reason to return and they wouldn’t need to hide him.
Fara and Max are probably hiding in a hotel somewhere. Even though Langley know they’re there its imperative that no one else does.
I am sure Quinn has his own apartment. But he’s not station chief so I bet Carrie’s is nicer.
I was thinking its going to look super weird if they keep sneaking off together all the time, everyone is totally gonna think they’re boning. It would actually make a great cover. I’m surprised if Carrie doesn’t suggest it.
Quinn will stay with the ambassador. She’s a cougar! She likes Peter. Can’t blame her.
If Fara had succeeded in “seducing” Aayan as Carrie had, would you feel icky about it?
Or is it that it’s Carrie and she was responsible for killing his family?
Or is it that Fara would never go there like Carrie went there?
As Quinn would eloquently say: “Is there no fucking line?”
Carrie is gonna end up with another love child soon!
Yo Homeland I love ya and imma let you finish but PTSD isn’t caused by “carrie mathison” so don’t pull that shit on me
Are you sure? She’s pretty stressful.
lol, I’m just kidding.
If I recall correctly, it was never said Carrie was the cause…
Quinn started to lose it after he killed an innocent child. Not because of Carrie. He was focused and cool before 3.01.
