After Carrie and Astrid locate Peter, he is brought to hospital. Saul argues with the doctor who induced Peter's coma; Saul is adamant he and Carrie get the location of the next sarin attack. Moscow has a final job for Allison, which, if not completed, will risk both her "retirement" money, dacha and life. Moscow wants the sarin attack to take place in Berlin and wants Allison to protect the perpetrator. Carrie gets one of her brilliantly tenuous ideas and decides to investigate. Written by LA-Lawyer

Poor Medical Consultant
17 January 2017 | by valfedoxSee all my reviews

As a practicing anesthesiologist, I am often wondering who supervises the medical details. This episode has an extremely unrealistic scene in the ICU when Quinn is awakened from his drug induced coma. Starting from the taping of the endotracheal tube, to the drugs called out in the code that follows the extubation, and to the obstructing airway that every ICU practitioner would correct with a chin lift (but in the sequence is left obstructed), there are gross errors in the recreation of a realistic scene. It is a pity, because one is left wondering how many could be the technical errors in the other specialized areas, like hacking, shooting and communicating securely.

While we know that the excellent Homeland is "just a movie", technical realism, as the one pioneered by Michael Crichton in his "The Andromeda Strain", usually adds to the overall feeling of quality of the product.
