Sunday night's season finale of Homeland was a tough one for fans to watch. It has been a rough road for Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) on this show ever since he made his first appearance in season two. He's been shot multiple times, poisoned with sarin gas, he was in a house that exploded, and yet, he's always made it out alive. Unfortunately, Peter Quinn did not make it out of Sunday's episode alive.
After an assassination attempt on President-elect Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) failed, Carrie (Claire Danes) and Quinn were trying to get her to safety. They jumped in the president-elect's vehicle as Quinn told Carrie to lay on top of Keane. Quinn pulled out of the parking structure to find dozens of armed men waiting. With no other options left, Quinn slammed on the gas and drove right toward them as they opened fire on the vehicle. Since it was the president-elect's vehicle, it withstood a lot of bullets, but, eventually, two got through, hitting Quinn in the chest. He was able to blast through the barricade, but the damage had been done.
The vehicle slowly came to a stop, hitting a parked car, as Quinn slumped over in his seat. Carrie and President-Elect Keane finally sat up to see that they were safe and that Quinn was dead.
It was a sad moment for Carrie, the fans, and Rupert Friend, who posted on Twitter shortly after the episode aired. Friend tweeted a picture of himself as Quinn with the caption "Goodnight, and good luck."
