A raid on a terrorist safehouse in the Middle East leads to the rescue of USMC Sergeant Nicholas Brody (Creator/DamianLewis), who has been missing in action for eight years. Brody receives a hero's welcome from his wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin), {{CIA}} Deputy Director David Estes (David Harewood), the Vice President and the entire country -- but not from Carrie Mathison (Creator/ClaireDanes), a former CIA Operations Officer. Based on intelligence from her last (and completely unauthorised) mission, Carrie believes that Brody is a sleeper agent waiting to be activated. With the help of her mentor, CIA Middle East section chief Saul Berenson (Creator/MandyPatinkin), Carrie sets out to prove that Brody, seen by the world as an American hero, is really a traitor.
