Carrie Mathison: [about Quinn] A month ago, he wanted out. He was done with the Agency, all of it.
Astrid: And six months ago. And a year. And two years. Christmas of 2008, we drank the bar of a small hotel in Copenhagen completely dry, just the two of us, toasting his retirement. He will never get out. But every so often, it makes him feel better to say he will. And then he goes back to doing what he does best.

Exceptional and Well-Rounded
22 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Kreig Nicht Lieb" was next and was a fairly large upgrade from the ridiculous previous episode. Rupert Friend is hit or miss with his acting as Quinn, so I was wary of placing too much expectation on "Kreig Nicht Lieb" knowing Quinn would be the catalyst for the plot. Friend's acting was killer in this episode though, as was the typically arresting Danes. The writing "Kreig Nicht Lieb" was in a lower key of suspense—and for its own good—and the heart-pounding tension still found its way to the surface. This was an exceptional "Homeland" because it was so well rounded; it delivered on the character end, the action impulse and the element of surprise, and it held itself with poise while firing on all of those cylinders.
