Homeland is full of suspenseful moments, but if Claire Danes had it her way, the series would end in a more mundane manner.
The 37-year-old actress appears on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and reveals what she'd like to see happen for her character, Carrie Mathison, over the next final two seasons. "I'm always hoping for a little relief for Carrie," Danes admits. "Lots of crying, lots of reasons to cry."
The four-time Golden Globe winner says that her dream scene would just be Carrie hanging out with her daughter, Frannie. "I would just like her to play Monopoly with Frannie," Danes quips. "One came of Monopoly -- benign, easy chill."
She adds, "That's always my little wish for her is some domestic bliss."
When DeGeneres jokes that the actress' hopes for her character don't make for great television, Danes responds, "I think [Carrie] earned that."
Homeland airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
Long before Homeland, Danes won our hearts as Angela Chase on My So-Called Life. Here's a look at ET's interview with the actress when she was just 15 years old:
