"Homeland's" producer Alex Gansa and leading actress Claire Danes attended TV Academy Panel on May 2, 2014. During the session, they talked about the show and Brody's death. According to a Zap2it.com report, show's EP confirmed that Brody isn't coming back. He jokingly remarked that "we've been trying to get rid of the guy since Season 1."
He also revealed that Brody's death was planned a different way and not how it was shown in show's season 3 finale. The original idea was that Brody be killed by Saul, played by Mandy Patinkin.
"But it became clear Claire's Carrie had to send her soulmate someplace he wasn't going to come back from," explained Alex Gansa.
Actress Claire Danes further clarified why they sent Brody away. She reminded the audience that Brody was actually "broken in a way he couldn't be mended."
"What was his place in society?"

As for Saul, he "figures into the narrative in a very, very important way," noted Gansa.
Meanwhile, Claire Danes revealed that her child will be "big theme for her emotionally."

For more, her bipolar disorder will continue to be the part of her personality and challenges in "Homeland" Season 4.
Alex Gansa assured that they are planning to present a "compelling narrative from beginning to end."
