A blooming romance in “Homeland” Season 4 Episode 3 “Shalwar Kameez” (air date: Oct. 12, 2014) was happening. On a serious note, Carrie was on a mission to dig deeper into the farmhouse bombing. Read on for the full recap.

The episode started with Carrie as station chief in Islamabad. Unforunately, someone’s not happy with this — her subordinate, John who thinks that should be his position, not Carrie’s. His lack of enthusiasm for Carrie was clearly expressed during a meeting when he referred to her as a “young lady” and acting like a bratty child, disobeyed Carrie’s orders. Carrie may look a young lady to her, but this woman definitely knows how to set someone on fire (not literally, in this case).  She confronted him and told him that he should get his act together because she can smell the booze coming out of his mouth.

Typical Carrie was already on a roll and not wasting any time by starting on her search for Aayanz, the survivor of the farmhouse bombing. She gathered Max and Fara Sherazi to help her gain his trust so that they can extract information from him. Saul arrived with his team and gave Carrie advice, but Carrie didn’t want to take it simply because she thinks that she’s as good as her mentor already.

Back in the States, Quinn has been accused by his colleagues that he’s in love with Carrie and even his girlfriend thinks so too. Dar Adal even mentioned that his love for Carrie is the reason why his ex, Sandy, died. Quinn watched the video again on YouTube and then finally returned Carrie’s call. Carrie told him that she needs him there to help her with the case that she’s working on. Quinn told her that it’s difficult to say no to her. Then just like that, Carrie told him that she loves him, and Quinn was on his way to Carrie.
