'Homeland' Season 3 Finale Recap - Who Was Killed Off?

SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

Throughout the last few episodes of Homeland‘s third season, Damian Lewis‘ character Brody has been on a mission working with the CIA and Claire Danes‘ Carrie to kill General Akbari, one of the high ranking terrorists.

He was sent over to Iran to try and get asylum, telling them that he couldn’t go back to America where he is wanted for the bombing of Langley. They take him in under the supervision of Majid Javadi, a man that the CIA had turned into a double agent on their side.

At the end of last week’s episode, Brody had worked his way into Akbari’s office and completed the mission to kill him… but then he needed a way out of country.

Claire Danes to 'Glamour': Men & Women Are 'Hardly Equal'

Claire Danes is gorgeous in The Row on the cover of Glamour magazine’s January 2014 issue, on newsstands December 10.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Homeland actress had to share with the mag:

On feminism: “I am a feminist. And I’m so glad that [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham exists, because she is one too, and she’s quite vocal about it. Yes, women have more freedom and more influence than ever, but it’s hardly equal. It’s just not. It’s really f–king crazy. I’m sorry I’m cursing. But it’s wild that women are underrepresented [in Hollywood]. I have real anxiety about directing, and that’s something to question and challenge and correct.”

On her crying face: “Well, it is true, she gets emotional a lot. [Laughs.] There is that. But I actually think feelings are really hard for people. I think people are made uncomfortable by uncensored expressions of emotion. But, you know, that’s my job. I don’t have those fears. I really have never been concerned about being beautiful on-screen. That’s just not my jam. I’m concerned about it if I’m playing a beautiful character. But it’s not relevant for Carrie. I don’t need to worry about that, and I think that’s really great. I love sitting in the makeup trailer and getting my makeup done in 15 minutes as opposed to an hour and a half.”

On her husband Hugh Dancy: “Well, it’s true that you often kind of forget to see the person you’re most intimate with, but occasionally I’ll come to and sort of think, Oh my God! You’re really, really good-looking! [Laughs.] I’m embarrassed now! It’s nice to occasionally have that flash.”

Claire Danes Details Funny Exchange with President Obama!

Claire Danes walks her pet pup out of the Trump SoHo New York hotel on Sunday afternoon (November 17) in New York City.

The 34-year-old Homeland star was joined for the day by her husband Hugh Dancy and their adorable son Cyrus, 11 months.

Claire recently detailed her meeting of President Obama on The Late Show with David Letterman.

“He’s just so magnetic and so charismatic,” Claire said. “Tom Cruise was in the room and as soon as [Obama] walked into the room, it just eclipsed everyone, every amazing star.”

“So we find ourselves in front of the president and, I’m kind of on autopilot, and I say, ‘Hello, um, Mr. President, I’m Claire Danes, it’s so lovely to meet you.’ And he said, ‘Oh yes, Claire Danes, Claire, you’re a fine actress.’ And I say, well, you’re a fine president.’ And he said, you know, ‘Well, you’re a finer actress than I am president,’ and I just thought … really, just had no retort whatsoever, so I ran to the bar and had a very large shot of vodka,” Claire concluded.
