Talking to Entertainment Weekly, the actress Claire Danes, whom we know as Carrie Mathison on the show, hinted that plot will take place during the transitional phase where the president has been elected but has yet to take up the position in the White House, “It’s that in-between moment that is not typically focused on, so it’ll be interesting to see what it looks like.”
When questioned about her character, Danes said that Carrie will be stateside and living with her daughter. “This idea of atonement is still playing. She’s accrued a lot of guilt over the years and she’s still wrestling with that. She’s on her meds! She’s probably mentally capable,” she added.

Viewers may remember that Quinn was almost left to die in season 5’s finale. “We [Mathison and Quinn] didn’t know [when we were filming], but now we know. We shot a couple of different versions [of the ending] just in case,” she concluded. Revealed VINEREPORTS.
