Great...more Dana. Just what Homeland needed. (roll eyes) I think the actress is fine, but the character is bloody annoying.

Why do these writers insist on shoving Dana down our throats? She's insufferable, and Morgan Saylor can't act to save her life. When she's on my tv screen, I feel like I'm watching a horrible teen drama. On another note, I'm going to be freaking pissed if Peter Quinn isn't a series regular.

Why oh why oh WHY is that annoying wretch Dana getting a mention or even screentime! KILL HER! And all I want is Peter Quinn, please! Need more of him s3
