You are finally free, Peter Quinn

I’m having a deja-vu right now. It’s like going back to the end of Season 5, but even worse, because I know this is the real end. All the feelings, the sadness and the impotence are back. Yes, it’s just a TV character, and no, I’m not crazy. Rupert, I feel that way because of…

R is for Revenge

Tears. That was all. The first scene of the episode was so intense, so hard, so emotional, that I burst into tears. But that was just the beginning, because the episode was going to be a roller coaster of emotions for Quinn. And Rupert has done it in such a masterful way that it is impossible not to…

Tying up loose ends… and memories

I’m a bit lost about what to say this week, it was all something too confusing for me. Not about the facts in themselves, but about how they happened. Quinn suddenly having a deja-vu about where he was driving, Quinn remembering a waitress with whom we don’t really know (neither him) what relationship he had, Quinn remembering…

Don’t mess with Peter Quinn

I have always heard that faith can move mountains … But what about revenge? Revenge is one of the biggest motivations. And for Quinn, it’s no longer just a matter of knowing what’s going on, helping Carrie and saving the day … it’s revenge. You can see it his eyes. You can see it in his…

Quinn rising from the ashes

Well, this was what we were expecting a while ago, well, I was expecting it, I guess you, too. An episode mostly focused on Quinn, an episode where to dig a little inside his now disturbed head … Astrid seemed the perfect person to show us another side of Quinn… But damn!, she didn’t deserve…

Accepting the “situation”

I am completely stupefied after Sunday’s episode. When you think that Quinn’s life could not have been worse so far … Dar Adal leaves us all completely bewildered after his revelation. Seriously, is there any master plan for Quinn to end up triumphant after going through all this trash? Because I just don’t understand why… On the plus…

For your consideration: Rupert Friend as Quinn 2.0

Who needs and Emmy FYC Event to promote his work this season??? You can be sure not Rupert!! He is proving every week that he’s a strong candidate to win all the damn awards for his Quinn 2.0 performance. Two scenes (he didn’t even have to speak in one of them) were enough this week to show us,…

Second round* in hell for Peter Quinn

* Second round this season I mean… because I lost count of other seasons … There are episodes, especially if we talk about Homeland, that can break your heart in many ways. They can do it in a tender way, in a painful way, you can die of love, you can suffer for your favorite…

The “QUINNspiracy” bursts out!!

Quinn continues evolving this season (and looks finally clean yayyy!!!). Still with physical limitations (aside from the obvious, we have again verified that his vision problems are still there), Quinn has set out to discover what is happening across the street. It will not be easy, but despite that, he seems determined. His gun, his…

Is Quinn finally back?

Or is it maybe too soon to say that? Episode 6.03 starts breaking us completely, again, something that is becoming usual this season. With an explanation that, although obvious or expected, was equally necessary. The reason why Quinn does not want to take a shower. Though he supposedly didn’t know what had happened … in any case,…

Quinn taking a walk through hell

Did you think the premiere had been very emotional? Well, I guess you find yourself right now on a roller coaster of emotions after watching the episode 2, and thinking something like: Oh my God, I’m not going to survive this season!! But don’t worry, if Quinn survived to the season 5, you can get…

It’s QUINNsday! (…and this is not a review)

[…]In watching Friend’s performance in this episode, almost everything is altered. He destroys perceptions of who Peter Quinn is, how we are meant to view military hospitals, and how someone with such a vast amount of PTSD and the aftereffects of chemical warfare struggles to live within their own skin. This Quinn is a completely…
