Homeland Season 8 Episode 12 Spoilers:

‘Homeland’ Season 8 Episode 12 marks the end of a quality television show. The penultimate episode sets up the finale rather brilliantly, teasing a showdown between two of the most important characters of the show. Have a look at the promo for the episode below:

As you can see, the stakes are going to be extremely high in the finale. As high as nuclear war. So, the choice that Carrie makes will have a huge effect. Carrie will be forced to choose whether she wants to kill her mentor, Saul, or not.

If there is one relationship that has been stable in the entire show, it has been the one between Saul and Carrie. The former is no less than a father figure for the protagonist. Hence, the choice for Carrie will certainly be extremely tough. While the chances of Carrie getting a happy ending are low, the probability of her choosing to kill Saul is even lower. A reasonable bet would be that Carrie and Saul unite once again in the face of adversity and avert a major crisis: in this case, a potential world war.
