Showtime has given security clearance to Homeland fans willing to take on a dangerous mission-help discharged CIA agent Carrie Mathison hunt Abu Nazir. In advance of Homeland's second-season premiere on Sept. 30, the network has launched an alternative-reality game, located at ItHitsHome.com, in which fans of the political thriller can use a series of video and audio artifacts, documents and different portals to thwart an impending terrorist plot. New portals such as Carrie's Wall, an interactive evidence wall; Saul's Files, a virtual laptop containing CIA agent Saul Berenson's top-secret files; and Dana's Blog, the personal account of Sgt. Nicholas Brody's teenage daughter, will be unveiled every week until time runs out...or just until the season premieres.
