Carrie can come to terms with Brody’s loss WITHOUT Damian being there.
The entire concept—the loss of Brody—implies he is no longer on the show.
A dream sequence on this show—and we can assume it would be Carrie’s—is honestly the most idiotic, bullshit thing I could ever think of and completely out of tune with what this show is, its tone, etc.
A flashback doesn’t make a lot of sense either as we saw everything that ever happened between them. What would it flashback to?
Mostly I’m just annoyed and frustrated that the writers even want to go there at all. Put it to rest! Brody lasted one (some would say two) season longer than he should have. Their continued fascination with him, his family, and his relationship with Carrie at times threatened to completely derail this show—some would say it did completely.
The more the writers refuse to let go of Brody and of Damian, the harder it will be for audiences to do the same. The same audience they are trying to sell on a “reboot,” on a new direction for the show, and on a story that is 100%, totally, completely Carrie’s story. I get that Brody is a major component of her life, and of her story, and always will be, but this is blatant and obnoxious fan pandering.
