“Homeland” boss: “We certainly don”t want anybody to turn off to Carrie”
Showrunner Alex Gansa says “I think we”re all nervous about” a controversial scene from the Season 4 premiere – a scene that took five days in the editing room to make just right. “What she did at the end of last year, arguably sending the man she loved to his death, is something she”s having an incredibly difficult time facing. So she”s compartmentalizing her grief; compartmentalizing her culpability.” PLUS: Gansa found the “reboot” to be “liberating,” an intelligence expert found many problems with the season premiere on many levels, that controversial scene was a terrible idea, in defense of the new Carrie, why is Quinn in the driver”s seat?, and “Homeland” fell right back into its “over-the-top habits, finding brand-new mistakes to make.”
