Well here we are folks. The end of Season 3. It’s been a bit up and down, but I will not waste any time in this review moaning, not until later on at least. Because right now, I have nothing but good things to say about this majestic finale. Let’s get on with it.
At the safe house, Carrie and Brody ponder what happens next when they get home. She informs him of her pregnancy, and we find out that the baby is indeed Brody’s. Later that night, they hear a helicopter. Believing it to be their extraction team, they go outside, only to be ambushed by Iranian military forces, who take Brody, but leave Carrie behind. Meeting with Javadi the next day, he tells her that Brody has gone on trial, and has been sentenced to death. Carrie has one last conversation with him via phone, but the time comes later that night when Brody is to be hanged. He is lifted into the air in front of the entirety of Tehran, and he shares a look with Carrie as he asphyxiates and slowly dies.
And that’s it folks. I’ll see you again next year for Season 4, but until then, have a fantastic Christmas and a happy new year! Make sure you have fun with your families and drink well all night, but always remember Nicholas Brody as the hero he was, rather than for the mistakes he made.
