Lorde’s cover of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.”

Nimrat Kaur tells tales of her Homeland

I play a bold and determined Pakistani ISI agent named Tasleem, who has been fiercely following her mission. There is a certain mystery about the character that will catch the audience’s attention.

The magnitude of the work can be gauged by the fact that there are as many as six writers involved with each episode. In all, five directors work on rotation as they direct each episode to bring in that much required precision.

On the sets, she got friendly with Life Of Pi actor Suraj Sharma, who plays a distraught Pakistani medical student in the show.

Her role was restricted to only five episodes, but it was subsequently increased to seven.

I have no idea that I have scenes with Claire Danes at this point. I play a mysterious person who is her nemesis on the show. Of course, it would be lovely to share screen space with her but every time I ask the writers they have this sweet smile on their faces, so I am not sure.” 

So she is like a female j.v. Abu Nazir ?

Official season 4 description for new regular Fara and 1 of the recurrings

Fara was an invaluable asset to the CIA bombing investigation in part because of her family connections in her native Iran. She reluctantly enlisted her family’s assistance to help Carrie, and now Carrie has returned the favor by inviting Fara to join her team in the field. 

The smart, no-nonsense US ambassador to Pakistan, Martha Boyd is a woman to be reckoned with. She and Carrie immediately butt heads over a mission gone awry, but they must quickly learn to work together.

And other regulars’ descriptions remain unchanged except Carrie and Saul.

Crack CIA agent Carrie Mathison plays by her own rules when it comes to protecting the US from terrorist attacks. Her uncanny intuition, dogged determination, and gift for persuasion helped her identify Nicholas Brody as a terrorist and convert him to an ally. She also headed the operation to capture and kill al-Qaeda mastermind Abu Nazir, and turned the man responsible for the CIA bombing, Majid Javadi, into an invaluable US asset. Along the way, she fell in love with Brody and became pregnant with his child, which made his arrest and execution that much more traumatic for her. Now with a baby to raise and a fast-tracked career as an overseas station chief, Carrie is forced to make difficult choices about the direction she wants her life to take.

Saul is Carrie’s long-time, no-nonsense mentor. He stood behind her as she turned Brody into an accomplice and brought down Abu Nazir. Saul’s unorthodox style and high-risk, old school maneuvers proved too much for the new head of the CIA, Andrew Lockhart, and Saul was forced into retirement. Will he be able to stay in the intelligence game and keep tabs on his protégé while working for a private security firm in New York?

On another note, Brody family (all 4 of them) and Mike (gone Blacklist) have been removed from cast list on the Showtime official site.

Which means the chances of any of them reappearing are very slim.

Considering Abu Nazir was back last season in a very unexpected way, don’t lose hope on Brody’s return.

They haven’t finished with Fara’s page, but Virgil, Mira and Dar Adal will all be back. Director (not Senator anymore) Lockhart is still a regular, I suppose.

Episode tiles revealed.

401 "The Drone Queen"

I thought of Carrie first, imagining her commandeer all the American drones in Pakistan. But the title means the “male “queen of the honey bees, right?

402 "Trylon and Perisphere"

The Trylon and Perisphere were two modernistic structures, together known as the “Theme Center,” at the center of the New York World’s Fair of 1939-1940. Connected to the 610-foot (190 m) spire-shaped Trylon by what was at the time the world’s longest escalator, the Perisphere was a tremendous sphere, 180 feet in diameter.

403 "Shalwar Kameez"

A traditional dress of South and Central Asia.(As above.) Shalwarare loose pajama-like trousers. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic, often with a western-style collar.
All in all, too cryptic to decipher.

Will Brody appear spiritually or even better alive which I know is far reaching

I think in flashbacks or in Carrie’s dreams. (prefer the former)

Almost every interview this year there are questions about Brody’s return, and the answer remain the same: It’s definitely an option.

Since Damian is shooting Our Kind of Traitor right now, I don’t expect to see him early this season. My bet is on 410, where he will make a special apparance. (We’ll have confirmation when he goes to South Africa.)
