This chapter explores entanglements of gender and geopolitics in television drama in relation to the emergence of new forms of narrative complexity in the genre, the securitization of the post-9/11 world and the processes of media convergence that facilitate and invite intense forms of audience participation. We examine these dynamics through a detailed analysis of the character of Carrie Mathieson in Homeland and of audience engagements with her. We argue that in the narrative logic of Homeland, good/bad foreign policy and good/bad mothering constitute overlapping realms of knowledge and judgement that defy practical, political, ethical and epistemological differentiation.
