This show would be much better without Carrie in it

I stopped watching this show years ago and that pretty much was the consensus back then.

Enjoyed the episode but I thought it was ridiculous that the president would resign. Next year is the last and it takes a time jump and is centered in Israel.

the president has been the worst part about this season.  did not like the actress that played her and did not like the way the president was portrayed.  having beau bridges as president might be an uptick.  it's ridiculous that the presidents closest aide would betray her, call an airstrike, and not be fired or even disciplined.  he was right there next to her like it never even happened.   thats a suspension of disbelief i'm not able to bridge.

It was a stupid plot and premise. Couldn't Carrie just have ducked into another room, out of site, and just taken off the wig? The police would have still been looking for the blonde woman and she could have escaped. I've know several bi-polar people and none of them would go full on insane if they didn't get their meds. We're somehow supposed to believe that she is equipped to work as a Special Opps agent? That's not it works...

I was convinced that Yveny would have shown her sister and daughter captive to coerce a statement. Especially after his comment about knowing all about her with the meds. That would have been more interesting.

The President was annoying and the actress sucked. She was supposed to be sympathetic but her attempt to appear "tough" just made her an egotistical bitch.

agreed, the president was just not likable at all.  even when she was trying to be nice (to saul's warroom of spies) she came off as stiff and condescending.  

i'm not sure if carrie is acting that way because she was without her meds, or maybe they were giving her fake meds.

Agree with s lot of the comments above about some of the absurdities.  Having said that, I think this season is much better than some of the past ones:  

remember the joy of dealing with Brady’s angst ridden daughter every episode?  Focus on the field work in the Middle East and leave the baby problems out of the mix which it seems the writers are doing now.

i always wondered how the writers were going to get out of that storyline.  They had created their own Meereenese Knot with the baby addition. Now Carries sister taking ownership gets them out of that.

That storyline was never going to work if Carrie was going to be out in the field. Have no idea why that was ever introduced.

Forgot season 8 has been going on. Caught up on episodes 1 through 6 and still has the same premise but good to watch.
