Alison's situation has clearly changed when she is interviewed by the detective, who re-invents his own life story to encourage whoever he is interviewing. Alison's clothes and demeanour imply confidence and money. Perhaps Noah gets a great advance on the basis of his first draft first chapter and decides to leave his wife, rescuing Alison from her demons. We must remember that the stories as played out are dramatisations of what Alison and Noah are telling the detective and which might or might not be true. I think Cole must be dead. Who else intersects with both A and N. But he might have been killed by his business rival (the fight is deep rooted and about more than just a bowling alley). And his death could have been witnessed by A and N, who can't tell the truth because it would reveal where they had been and what they had been doing. Great acting. Great television.

Is TGW losing its way? Haven't we been here before in every respect - cheating with the intern; Jackie being an interfering nuisance; Eli fighting with journalists over 'the truth'; boring court cases with obscene damages being awarded; self-congratulatory lawyers thinking they are oh so clever and !important. Was the prospect being dangled this week of TGW DC, TGW NY - tv franchise heaven. I hope not.
Much as I love TGW, this season the writers are struggling to find a storyline that will retain viewers. I can hear people switching off in their thousands. Shut down the firm and let Alicia and Cary set up on their own in a small downtown office with Kalinda helping out for old times' sake. Now THAT would be interesting.

Homeland Review: Bury the Hatchet

Once again, you end up wondering where the plot can possibly take it from here. Instead of some interesting snooping on Brody's calls, texts, meets, habits, can he really end his life in an orange suit in Cuba? He will have to be turned, of course, and persuaded to work for the US - keeping up his links with the enemy. Perhaps there is another traitor in the government and he is used as bait. Having been commissioned for a third series, the writers must have some entertaining twists up their sleeves.
