Watch: 'Homeland' Season 5 Trailer Shows There's No Way Out for Carrie

[Spoilers for Season 4] After spending most of Season 4 repeatedly pushing past her moral limits, Carrie finally snapped. No, she didn’t go off her meds and sleep with a suspected terrorist. She dropped out of the CIA to take care of her baby (the product of sleeping with a suspected terrorist).

Two years later, and Carrie still can’t escape the aftershocks of her old job. In the new trailer above, the bipolar ex-agent is shown trying to escort a billionaire through a dangerous Middle Eastern country, being kidnapped by God-knows-who and stopping short of pulling the trigger on her own bad luck. Oh, and Quinn is on a killing spree.

If a bit messy in appearance, the upcoming season of Showtime’s Emmy-winning drama series looks likely to at least hold our attention. Season 4 was an impressive return to form after a slight drop-off the year before, and co-creator Alex Gansa will try to keep momentum on his side in a show dependent on forward motion. 

Watch the trailer above. “Homeland” returns October 4 at 9pm.
