(LOS ANGELES) -- Major spoiler alert for the third-season finale of the Showtime series Homeland, which aired Sunday night! Read on at your own risk!
In Sunday night's season three finale of Showtime's Homeland, one of the show's two main leads, the Marine-turned-terrorist Nicholas Brody, played by Damian Lewis, was unceremoniously hanged to death while staring into the eyes of the woman he loves, CIA agent Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes.
Brody may have been the sacrificial lamb to remedy the show's floundering ratings this season. After winning back-to-back awards at the last two Golden Globes, the show and its stars were shut out of last week's nominations.
