While most other shows would go with a teaser photo, video or a tweet, “Homeland” has taken it to another level by letting fans interact by intercepting conversation. A mini-game has recently been launched and what’s make it unique is that it can reveal potential conflicts that could arise when the season begins.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Homeland” spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens next before the next episode airs.

When Season 6 of “Homeland” debuts on January 15, viewers will see Carrie Mathison (Claire Daine) setting foot in New York as she takes the bus in Brooklyn and works at a spacious Williamsburg office. This upcoming season will deal with how counterterrorism plays out in the homes of the people behind it.

Homeland: Surveillance Mission

“Homeland’s” official Twitter account posted teaser to sate fans with less than one week before the show premieres. This cryptic tweet, however, does not openly reveal anything about the plotline; rather, it says that there has been a leak and the Homeland intel that has been hidden in the Financial District is now available for all ears. It then attaches a link that will lead users to a map of New York City, aptly titled Homeland: Surveillance Mission. In the diagram, there are several markings in different locations in Manhattan where users can apparently “intercept” conversations.

Fans "Listen" To Conversations

One hotspot is located at Park Avenue Hotel, which is at the corner of Park Avenue and East 49th Street. One can listen in on a conversation between two men through remote access and, when done, it reveals that they are talking about someone that had tried to break into Carrie’s house. However, it is unclear if it was them who are trying to break in, or if Carrie is the one trying to trespass.

Clicking another location, one can hear a conversation about the newly-elected president. The two men in the audio are talking about their disapproval of the elected official. This could mean that a group has plans to take the president down, thus, spelling trouble for Carrie. Other locations also contain bits and pieces of information that may or may not determine the direction “Homeland” is taking for Season 6.

The series returns January 15, 2017 on the Showtime. In Australia, it will air on Channel TEN.
