Brody must have been stoked to learn that he has one of the only BlackBerrys in existence with video chatting capabilities, and seeing him react to that would be a treat, assuming that Damian Lewis is better at acting excited over a phone than he is being terrified and stressed out over one.
The thing that I think is important about Brody is that he was, is and always will be a soldier. He will respond like a soldier. He identifies an enemy, and in this case it seems pretty clear that it is Vice President Walden, for what he considers a terrorist act of sending unmanned drones into school. I am aware that is a very liberal viewpoint to take politically and there will be more right wing conservatives who say, “This is so ridiculous. And are you justifying terrorism? Saying we’re worse than they are?” The show is careful, I think, to say not that one is worse than the other, but that they are versions of the same thing.
