Carrie Mathison Character Biography
Crack CIA agent Carrie Mathison plays by her own rules when it comes to protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks. Carrie's belief that returned prisoner of war Sergeant Nicholas Brody had been turned by al-Qaeda, coupled with her bipolar disorder, led to her dismissal from the Agency and E.C.T. treatments. But now that Carrie is out of the CIA, can she lead a "normal" civilian life? Or will her desperate and reckless need to learn the truth about Brody drive her back to the edge once again?
