Still no word from Brody, but Episode 6 provided answers to the central mystery that has been bothering me since the beginning of the current season: Why should we care about Javadi? The episode picks up precisely where we left off, and the opening scene subtly reminds us that, in "Homeland" time, less than a month has passed since the season premiere. Carrie is at the suburban golf course/estate where she is to meet with Iranian intelligence chief Javadi, while Quinn and Fara work through the night to figure out where she's been taken.

In the opening episode of Season 4 of “Homeland,” Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), CIA station chief in Kabul, is sitting in a rec center within the U.S. compound drinking a beer and watching baseball on TV, when a young Air Force pilot approaches. After an exchange that establishes Carrie as the person who called in the airstrike he flew on the home of a suspected terrorist, the lieutenant says, “Monsters.” “What did you say?” Mathison angrily demands of the young man she had previously been sizing up sexually.

Just last week, I climbed out on a limb to announce that "Homeland" was officially out of the woods and back on the safe side of the proverbial shark. Then this week happened. By the end of episode nine, I felt like Dana crying in her motel room: “Just promise me I'll never have to see you again…” Episode nine finally gave viewers the moment that this entire season has been building toward: the reunion of Carrie and Brody. And I have to admit that pretty-much everything about this episode was terrible.

This is your lucky Wednesday -- a Midweek Madness double feature. Now that you have stopped chuckling at the 'Conduct Us' orchestra, how about a preview of "Homeland" the Musical? Hey, maybe it's not as far-fetched as it might appear, given that one of the hit TV show's stars is Broadway veteran Mandy Patinkin. And you just know it would be fun seeing all those colorful "Homeland" characters break into song and dance, in between dodging "Manchurian Candidate"-style assassins and inappropriate trysts.

ONE LAMENTABLE result of this month's elections is that the stalemate has been broken over the creation of a monstrous Department of Homeland Security. This cosmetic response to the myriad failures that made the nation vulnerable on Sept. 11, 2001, offers no assurance that Americans will be safer. Instead, it poses new dangers. Most alarming is that the version of the legislation passed by the House on Wednesday -- with the Senate apparently soon to follow -- is a 500-page, 11th-hour rewrite few lawmakers have read and perhaps none fully understands.

Alexandra Roosevelt's back yard feels very empty these days. Tortley, her beloved giant African Spur Thigh tortoise, has vanished from her Homeland property and is nowhere to be found. "He's gotten out a few times in the last 20 years, but people see him right away," she says of her tortoise, estimated to weigh at least 150 pounds and be 3 feet long and about 2 feet high. "He's so big and strange to people, and it's very surprising that not a single person seems to have seen him. " The family, especially daughter Grace, 9, is heartbroken, and combing the area to try and find their pet before winter.

I ADMIT it: I cut through.To get from Northeast Baltimore to Roland Avenue to my daughter's school, I drive through residential streets in Homeland and Roland Park. Anyone who has tried to negotiate Northern Parkway or Cold Spring Lane knows how sclerotic Baltimore's east-west arteries are. So people cut through.This commuter traffic does not please residents of Homeland, to whom apparently, we motorists on our way to school and work are a crowd of bashi-bazouks galloping over the hill to plunder their houses and slaughter their cattle.

The former South African apartheid government's designation of black "homelands" was a fraud that never achieved credibility. Small parcels of least-valuable land were set aside for a majority of the population. All that is past history. But now an unreconstructed purist named Constand Viljoen, a former army commander, is crusading for a homeland -- but this time where a white, Afrikaner culture could flourish. It would be geographically and economically within South Africa but politically separate.

Dan McCall sells a lot of T-shirts, coffee cups and other products that tweak the government, so his designs parodying the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security were pretty typical fare. Until the cease-and-desist demands hit. The situation turned into a First Amendment primer - that it is, in fact, OK to use government agency seals to lampoon or criticize. McCall sued, his case handled pro bono by Public Citizen in Washington and Baltimore attorney Ezra Gollogly, and the two agencies agreed in a settlement to reverse course.

After tonight's finale, it's hard to imagine what another season of "Homeland" would look like. Season three's finale wraps it all up and writes the fates for all our key characters. Let's start at the beginning. Brody is standing over General Akbari's dead body at the headquarters of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. He drags the body under the desk, pockets a gun he finds in a desk drawer and walks out of the building as calmly as possible. We know it's only a matter of seconds, though, before someone realizes the general has been assassinated The news that something is wrong churns through the building just as Brody shuts the door of the sleek black SUV waiting for him outside.

Our man Brody keeps everyone guessing right up through the end of this episode. Carrie, however, shows again that she cannot be fooled. Yelling across the globe through a cell phone, Carrie stakes her claim: “I've always been right about Brody!” Whatever her flaws (and they are numerous), she has always been right about Brody. Or has she? The action takes place in Tehran, where Brody is on a top-secret CIA mission to assassinate General Akbari, the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
