Spoilers for 'Homeland' Season 8 Episode 6 'Two Minutes'

By the end of the episode, there is just one question from fans on Twitter: "Has Carrie let the country down?"

The episode saw Carrie (Claire Danes) link up with Russian operative Yevgeny Gromov (Costa Ronin) in a bid to rescue Max Piotrowski (Maury Sterling). "I knew it!" was the most used phrase by fans who were sure of her move. "O M G.......that's all I've got to say!" tweeted a fan.

"This looks bad, Carrie has let the country down?" worried another fan. For some, this was that element of surprise which would make the series a lot more intriguing. "She’s good, gotta give her that. There’s just so much to monitor and people to keep up with!" said a fan.

Meanwhile, there was another theory from a fan which seems quite possible. "One question I have is was her room bugged even inside the CIA compound? Her conversation with Saul was stilted, granted she did lie to him," he asked.

And there seems to be collective hate for the new POTUS on the show. Benjamin Hayes (Sam Trammell)  took over after the death of President Warner (Beau Bridges).  This tweet sums up the hate: "UGH I hate the new Pres Weasel."

Carrie is known to defy orders and that's a fact established early on in the previous installments of the series. However, her latest move may have just jeopardized her career, life and whatever backup plan Saul and Co may have had to repair the damages.

She tracks down Yevgeny and requests him to help find out about Max. Now, this alliance is risky, but its Carrie and this move may see a nationwide manhunt for her, hinting at a dire end.

Right at the start of the episode, one fan said, "Ok, here we go. As if I haven't been stressed enough, Homeland has been so intense. But happy I have it to escape to! (And Max better be ok)". Well, we're sure you're not disappointed, sir.
