'Homeland' Season 8 Episode 9: Yevgeny betrays Carrie in a way fans didn't see coming
Spoilers for 'Homeland' Season 4 Episode 9 'In Full Flight'
It shouldn't come as a surprise that fans on Twitter have been going berserk over the way 'Homeland's final season is unfolding. They were left heartbroken with the deaths of Max Piotrowski (Maury Sterling) and Haissam Haqqani (Numan Acar). 'In Full Flight' sees some major shockers in the form of Yevgeny Gromov's (Costa Ronin) betrayal of Carrie Mathison. Fans on Twitter knew Yevgeny was up to no good and after he drugged Carrie and took away the data from the Black Box.
"What the hell did I just see?" asked a fan. "Noooooo he’s ONLY ON ONE SIDE - HIS!!!! #Homeland," said another. "Oh no! What did you do to Carrie " exclaimed another. "Nooo, Yevgeny!!. I saw it coming but had hoped I was wrong. #Homeland" tweeted another. The kiss was the highlight for one fan saying, "Expected betrayal aside, it was still hot!"
"I pray in the end you don't change the image we have of you being good to the bad Yevgeny," tweeted another fan. "Oh no! I don’t think this is what it seems... #Homeland #FinalSeason #YevgenyGromov@CostaRonin," a fan expressed.
As scary as it is, some fans thought the show could come a full circle and that may mean the end of the road for Carrie. "My biggest worry to the end of the show is it comes full circle as season 1 did w/Brody betraying our country & dying for it after making it all rt again.," a fan opined. "Carrie finally found a match for her: Yevgeny. But his contradiction can be a disadvantage. We don't know how much Russian interest there is in this question of the truth about the recording, but about the truth for Yevgeny and Carrie, it can be fatal," wrote another.
It wasn't all about Yevgeny as some fans lavished praise on Ronin for his masterful piece of acting. "You are a great Actor, you killed it in Americans, no words can describe your performance in #Homeland. We need a sequel," tweeted a fan. " Love you in Homeland. You were brilliant in The Americans too. Convince @Showtime for another season around CV. What is happening is unimaginable. The Russians, American & Chinese - scientists & the media. Carrie, Saul & Yevgeny fighting to save lives. We need hope & heroes," said another.
