After a tumultuous Season 3 and an uneven start to its current fourth season, the Showtime drama has started to return to its roots, thanks to an even CRAZIER Carrie. WARNING: Spoilers ahead if you have not seen the Nov. 9 episode.

Homeland Season 4 begins with Carrie (Claire Danes) authorizing a drone strike in Pakistan.

Sandy Bachman (Corey Stoll), the CIA station chief in Pakistan, gives Carrie intel about the whereabouts of Haissam Haqqani (Numan Acar), a terrorist extremely high on the U.S. kill list. But the drone strike instead bombs a home where a wedding is taking place, killing many women and children.

In Pakistan, Sandy's picture is splattered across the news at the same moment he sneaks off base, causing a riot* that results in Sandy being beaten to death by a mob.

Quinn turns around to protect Carrie, and the crowd grabs Sandy before either can react.

*And by riot, I mean planned attack. Then Carrie becomes obsessed with finding the culprit who plotted her co-worker's death.
