Carrie is currently trying to help a young man who is accused of fomenting terrorism, even though […]Read On »

What we do know is that Quinn is willing to go against orders when he believes they’re wrong, willing to threaten a superior who he believe is acting from pride rather than national protection, and that he’s willing to shoot to wound friend Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) when he thinks she’s jeopardizing a mission. Friend, born in Oxfordshire, England, earned an […]Read On »
