SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't watched Sunday night's 'Homeland' series 3 finale yet don't ready any further...

Viewers were left in shock after Damian Lewis's Emmy Award-winning character Nicholas Brody was killed off in the 'Homeland' series 3 finale on Sunday.

The show's anti-hero, who spent months on the run after being accused of bombing the CIA headquarters in Langley, was sentenced to death in the 90-minute-long dramatic episode.

Brody had just completed a mission in Iran - on behalf of the CIA - when his extraction plan with Carrie Mathison (Clare Danes) was overthrown by new chief, Senator Lockhart.

Did the show's bosses make the right decision to kill Brody off? Here's what the critics have to say...

In The Guardian, Rebecca Nicholson observed that Brody's death means "we won't be in for more of the same circular stories taking the same familiar path" in the next series.
