‘Homeland’ season 3 spoilers: Claire Danes’ Carrie now has an attorney

Claire DanesWe don’t know just yet what Carrie is going to be needing counsel for on the upcoming third season of “Homeland,” but let’s hope that the CIA has appointed her someone good to oversee some of her legal matters.

According to TVLine, former “Boss” actress Amy Morton has been booked for the recurring role of Erin Kimball on the Showtime hit, which will start production this month in North Carolina. It’s clear that Carrie could need plenty of help if it is ever figured out just what she did in order to help Nicholas Brody escape the country after the terror attack. Let’s count the ways: She got him documentation, drove him to the border, and then watched him flee without contacting anyone about it. While she may believe that this man is not the double agent he once was, good luck convincing that to someone else. (Plus, there’s that not-so-tiny problem of him killing the Vice-President during season 2, regardless of whether or not he was being threatened by Abu Nazir to do it.)

Meanwhile, Tracy Letts of “Prison Break” has a recurring role of his own playing Committee Chairman / Senator Andrew Lockhart. It’s not much of a surprise to see Big Government get involved in the process here, given that Brody was a potential Vice-Presidential candidate that is now suspected of murdering countless people on American soil. Sadly, we don’t really know anything else about this character right now, including what he may or may not bring to the show.

“Homeland” season 3 premieres on Showtime September 29, so you still have a little while to brace yourself for what will probably be a TV thrill ride like no other.
