Continuing my series of all Brody Carrie scenes, we reach “The Weekend.” If you didn’t believe the love story with this episode, you were probably just meant to never believe it.
Well, Damian’s most recent tweet has made this post inevitable!

While the camel is not called Werner, we know from an interview clip shown on Danish TV that Damian has made the following impression of Werner Herzog’s description of this film:
This film is like a camel, and an elephant and a bison on top of a donkey, and I’m the donkey. But together we will make a wonderful movie.
So the camel is quite central to the movie, but, hey, it blinked, and Damian won! 😀 😀 😀 Continue reading “Damian Lewis Brightens the Screen in Queen of the Desert *UPDATED*”

You all know Damian is the proud patron of Cure EB (formerly Sohana Research Fund), a wonderful charity that works very hard to raise awareness and funds to make the world a better place for everyone living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a genetic skin blistering condition where the body lacks the protein to hold the skin together.
When we shared the name change information on Twitter a few months ago, the patron has quoted the tweet and said:
Because we WILL find a cure….! https://t.co/KAyl9uuHNK

Last we left our star-crossed duo, Brody and Carrie were standing outside a church and there was rain. Now, we’re continuing trying to get an answer for the question: Was it love?
Till this point in Homeland, we already know enough about Carrie Mathison to know that she uses sex, the same way she uses wine and music, as an escape from the restlessness, the constant spinning in her head. She wears a wedding ring when she goes out so there’s no confusion by either party about what the sex is about. Just sex, nothing more. We know she’s had a life full of risk-taking. We know she dated Estes and broke up his marriage. All of these tidbits of her back story are meant to establish the fact that Carrie believes in her soul that a life of coupledom, marriage, and children is not in her future. She can’t even dream about it, because of her illness, because of her job, or because she finds herself incapable of doing the work a real relationship would require, or withstanding the inevitable boredom of it. So she uses men for sex. And she uses sex for control. And then she gets back to work. It’s an arithmetic that’s worked brilliantly for her.
With Brody, it’s different. She’s working. But she’s also attracted to him. And it’s all very confusing and also quite intoxicating.
Is it obsession? Yes, okay. The magnet pull of a self-destructive force? Sure. But it’s real. Palpable, relentless, and necessary.
