'Homeland' and Claire Danes' fans had another reason to celebrate. Not just was it the day they would get to watch a scintillating episode of the political thriller, it was also Danes' birthday. The actor turned 41 on Sunday, April 12, and fans took to Twitter to wish their favorite star. 

While "Happy Birthday, Carrie!" was one of the most common tweets, here are a few that were a lot funnier and lovely. "We need Carrie to save the world," tweeted a fan.

'Homeland' is running on its final season and this week, fans will be eager to see the developments in Episode 10 titled 'The Designated Driver'.  The previous episode, 'In Full Flight' spelled bad news for Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).

After all the hard work in retrieving the Black Box from the crashed chopper, Yevgeny Gromov (Costa Ronin) finally showed his true colors as he drugged Carrie and took away the information she obtained from the device. The question now is: What happens next? 

It has been an unpredictable season so far. How things end for Carrie is a question that only time can answer. What are your thoughts on 'The Designated Driver'?
