do you think brody will always be viewed as the love of carries life and quinn will always be viewed as second fiddle? I kind of got the feeling in S3, she grew distant from Brody and even if he survived, once that mission was finally over, they were done. it seemed like a heat of the moment (or 2 seasons) relationship.

Only people who don’t know how to read Homeland, or probably any story, would say Brody was the love of Carrie’s life. It shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what the show is about. Brody was never a real love interest, he was the antagonist who came into Carrie’s life at the lowest point of her life, and his purpose was to kickstart Carrie’s story. There is only one real love story on Homeland, and that is Carrie and Quinn. Read more about the Brody problem here.
