1. This is a photograph of the Torre de David, the real building in Caracas, Venezuela where the fictional Nicholas Brody of Homeland is now living (against his will).
In Sunday’s episode, called “Tower of David,” a bleeding Brody (Damian Lewis), whom viewers have not seen since the Season 2 finale, is brought to the building by allies of Carrie’s. Brody is then tended to by a creepy character named Dr. Graham, played by Erik Todd Dellums. Later in the episode, Dr. Graham tells Brody about the history of the building. “They call it the Tower of David,” he says. “Not for King David, heaven forbid. For David Brillembourg, the particularly egomaniacal banker who commissioned it. Unfortunately, before it was completed, David died — and then the whole economy died. Construction stopped. The squatters all moved in. And voila.” All of that is factually correct.
15. The Vocativ mini-doc makes a different case; judge for yourself.
16. Homeland’s “Tower of David” episode was actually filmed in Puerto Rico. An abandoned apartment building in San Juan stood in for the Torre de David’s interiors.
17. The Torre de David details seemed pretty perfect, though — like here, when Brody’s de facto nurse, Esme (Martina Garcia) buys water for him at a bodega in the building.
The episode was co-written by the late Henry Bromell, who died in March.
18. But Brody is not excited about his new digs.
19. Even though it has a nice view…
20. … he just does not want to be there.
21. At least he has his heroin.
22. Carrie has no heroin.
