Six seasons in and still going strong, Claire Danes’s tense counterterrorism thriller picks up several months after Carrie thwarted an attack in Berlin in an edge-of-your-seat finale.

Now back in the US, Carrie is working at a foundation providing legal aid to the Muslim community, but her daily visits to Quinn – a physical wreck after coming back from the dead – could be hindering his recovery.

Meanwhile, Saul and Dar are briefing the new President-elect, Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel), but are her motivations more personal than political? A slower start than previous explosive openers, but it’s better for it.
