Why “Homeland” ended Season 4 so quietly
Showtime president David Nevins explains: “We went out of season three with this massive ending, with the death of Brody. And I think a show with this amount of political and narrative complexity can do a last episode that has a change of pace. I thought they needed to do an episode back in Washington, and needed to deal with Carrie”s family situation and her issues with motherhood. And there needed to be a political conclusion, too, not just an action conclusion.” PLUS: Nevins finds the criticism “gratifying and infuriating,” and it”s unfortunate that “Homeland” abandoned what made it so special.

Ash would probably have more dialogue in one season than in three movies. He”ll have to become a more fleshed-out character as well.”
