I get that people with jobs like Carrie's still have families and normal day to day problems but I have no interest in watching a show like Homeland for fascinating tidbits like Carrie picking Franny up from school. ITA - we saw how difficult it was to balance this life when we saw Saul's marriage disintegrate. They can't be married to the job and a person at home, no matter how patient that person (Mira) has been over the years. They were already doing a good job illustrating how Carrie had trouble balancing a relationship with her job and diagnosis, without adding in this poor kid, which as someone who had a less than attentive mother, is painful to watch. Unless Franny is going to become a bigger driver of the story going forward, I don't know why they ever added the character into the mix. As an aside (and putting on my tinfoil hat), I've never been convinced Franny was actually Brody's kid. Remember in S3 when Carrie was deep under cover in the psych hospital, was discharged and had the one night stand with the random dude who she then robbed of some cash the next morning? Dude resembled Brody pretty closely, IMO. And it was not long after that when we first saw her taking a pregnancy test. 4 Link to comment
