If you haven’t yet watched the season three finale of “Homeland,” stop reading now or be prepared for the same shock Twitter received last night.
The show’s heroin, turned terrorist, turned CIA asset, Nicholas Brody, was killed off, hanged in Tehran after successfully killing the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
In the buildup to Brody’s ultimate end, one fan predicted how he’d be saved:
Have not watched this #Homeland in advance, but my prediction is Brody is saved by a Showtime executive who stops a bullet with his hand.
