I think that Sg.Nicholas Brody is finished. What else could he do? He is a traitor, already in the spotlight, on the run and with a girl friend (fired from the CIA). I do not see what could keep this show on without his main character.

Once again D. Lewis is wonderful. Dating back to "Band Of Brothers" he is amazing in all he does!!

After I watched the Emmy Awards, I went on Amazon and watched the pilot from season one. had to see for myself what all the hoopla was about. I am hooked. I bought the DVD from Amazon and I subscribed to Showtime the next day. I empathize with both of the main characters. I don't think anyone knows how they would respond to such physical and emotional torture. His psyche is undoubtedly screwed up. Love, love, love the show and all the actors involved. I have been a fan of Mandy Patinkin since the Prince Bride. I had only seen Damian Lewis on "Life" but I am definitely a fan. Claire Dames has always been one of my favorites actors.

I hope you mean 2013 because two years is too long a wait for season 3
