Here's Your Easy-To-Understand Homeland Season 5 Premiere Recap

October 5, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi
shefinds | Style

Last night was the season five premiere of Homeland. I won’t lie, I was having a bit of trouble following along throughout the episode. First off, there was no season four recap of where we left off before diving into Carrie’s whirlwind life. Thanks a lot, Showtime. Anyway, if you had trouble following along like I did, here’s an easy-to-understand and quick recap of what happened in “Separation Anxiety.”

Season five takes place two years later in Berlin and starts off with an Internet prank going terribly wrong. Two hackers who work in Berlin’s Club King George brothel (which actually exists, by the way) planned to upload a crude video to the ISIS recruitment website. In the process, they see the another presence trying to get onto the recruitment site. Who is it? None other than the CIA. The hackers end up taking over the CIA’s servers and steal 1361 classified files. Uh oh.

Here’s where we are with each of the main characters:

Carrie: She no longer works for the CIA and is enjoying her life in Berlin with Frannie (who is so much cuter now) and her co-worker/boyfriend Jonas, who, of course, has red hair. Carrie is the head of security at Düring Foundation, which is owned by the philanthropic billionaire Otto Düring. She definitely seems more relaxed than season four, although part of her is missing her job at the CIA.

Saul: He’s the European Division Chief in Langley. Carrie and Saul are not on speaking terms and it’s totally awkward and tense when she purposely runs into him at the Berlin CIA station. Saul mentions that Carrie had a hand in him not becoming director of the CIA and is obviously bitter. He ends their convo by calling Carrie “naive and stupid.” Low blow.

Quinn: After spending two years in Syria running special ops, Quinn is at Langley briefing the CIA about what’s going on. Quinn then arrives in Berlin, breaks into a bomb-makers apartment and kills him by making a bomb out of his own materials. Quinn meets up with Saul at a post office and is given a key to a mailbox. Inside the mailbox is a photo and details of a new target that he needs to kill. Once he provides a death certificate for the target, he will be paid. However, Saul warns Quinn that going forward he will receive no support from the CIA and he’s totally on his own.

Let’s just say season five of Homeland is going to take us on quite a ride.
