'Homeland' Season 8 Episode 10 Preview: Will Carrie betray Saul in 'The Designated Driver'?
'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 drugs Carrie and takes away the information she obtained from the device. The question now is: What happens next? It has been an unpredictable season so far and the promo clip released by Showtime ahead of episode 10: 'The Designated Driver' only heightens the tension.
You can watch the clip here:
The clip sees Yevgeny and Carrie in an unknown location while the US President, Benjamin Hayes, is warned by Pakistan that should the US troops cross the border, what can be expected us maximum retaliation with everything they've got. The scene then switches to Saul attempting to retrieve the Black Box and explains there could be some price he could get it back.
Meanwhile, Carrie is shown to have been put in a position where she says she can not betray Saul.
It is evident from the clip that Hayes' idea of threatening to go to war with Pakistan was a bad idea and now the country will respond back with enough firepower of their own. While this comes across as one of the plotlines, the other major story that fans would be looking forward to is Yevgeny and Carrie. There is still an air of mystery surrounding the Russian operative's involvement.
Meanwhile, fans on YouTube couldn't stop praising the episode with the comments section filled with lavish accolades. One fan said, "Damn what does Yevgeny want her to do that would be a betrayal to Saul? I thought for sure Yevgeny was ditching her at the end of Ep9 but she keeps giving him everything he wants. How is Carrie's story going to end? It's so rare to see such a strong final season from a show. So well done to all involved!"
Another said, "It's hard to think anything will ever be as good as Homeland. the characters they created and the quality of the actors that pulled them through its something that's not seen often... saul, Quinn, Carrie... oh my god and the quality of the content is just amazing, the only show I get chills when watching and keeps me on the edge and makes me nervous or just feel anything really. thank you homeland!"
