The highlight of the segment was the intimate moment between Quinn and Carrie, hinting at possible turn in their relationship.

It is clear the two are harbouring feelings for each other. It will be interesting to see how they deal with it. Meanwhile, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Showtime boss David Nevins has shared his insight on Carrie and Quinn's storyline.

"It's unclear to me yet whether Carrie's feelings for Quinn were momentary or deeper. And I don't think the show is clear on that yet," David Nevins told the abovementioned entertainment news publication. He noted that Quinn has been in love with Carrie for a long time. Avoiding speculations, Nevins said: "my preference is that I'm not into the artificially elongated 'will they or won't they.' If you want to do it, go for it. Don't be cute. My only preference is to try and remain unpredictable and avoid TV cliches."

Considering that the finale saw the return of the characters to the USA, it is speculated that Season 5 may be based in their homeland only. However, it is not yet "settled" according to Nevins. He revealed that the cast might be "going somewhere else overseas" but not back to Pakistan.

Coming back to "Homeland" Season 4 Finale "Long Time Coming," fans saw Carrie, Saul and Quinn reach home safely. The episode dealt with Carrie's personal life and featured the funeral of her father. Carrie's mother paid an unexpected visit to her revealing some shocking details of her relationship with Carrie's father.

Meanwhile, Dar Adal returned with a proposition for Saul, who is looking at exploring new avenues in CIA and succeeding Lockhart. Furthermore, Quinn confessed his feelings for Carrie and the two shared a warm moment before Carrie withdrew. However, he later took off for a dangerous and dark mission in Syria. Several media outlets are speculating that Episode 12 of "Homeland" Season 4 focused on building the ground for the upcoming instalment. However, it remains to be seen how it all plays out.

Furthermore, Nevins also shed light on why "Long Time Coming" was a "quiet" and slow-paced segment. According to him, it was time they delved into Carrie's family situation and they needed to give the season a "political conclusion." "The season had some great action, but at its core it was really a political thriller about America's place in the world, and how difficult that position is in the 21st century," Nevins explained.
