"In Memoriam," the second-to-last episode of "Homeland's" uneven sophomore season, offered a tidy resolution to several storylines ... but many questions remain.
Here's what we do know:
Where is Abu Nazir?
Either rotting in hell or enjoying paradise with 72 virgins, depending on what you believe. What we don't believe is the botched FBI operation that eventually led to the anticlimactic death of world's most-wanted terrorist. We weren't expecting "Zero Dark Thirty," but maybe something a little more personal/shocking/horrifying? Instead, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) caught what dozens of trained operatives missed: a hidden room in the tunnels beneath where Nazir (Navid Negahban) held her captive. Now she's got him cornered. But instead of a team of operatives, Carrie's only got a redshirt -- who, when he finally calls for backup, can't get through. Oh sure, now reception is bad? Like any good horror movie script, Nazir emerges from the darkness to silently slit the throat of the lone agent. While Carrie cowers in fear, the rest of the team finally returns, shooting Nazir when he seems to reach for a weapon.
