I know, right? He got there last Sunday. Kinda a weird timing after Alex Gansa said “So I don’t think you are going to see Brody (this season)” just two weeks ago.
I don’t have confirmation that he’s been on set, but I would say he’s there for a cameo appearance in this season.
None of his current works (films or TV) would be filmed there and none of his business sponsors need him there (to do promotion or shoot a commercial). Since his wife Helen Mcrrory is still in London now, the possibility of him taking a personal trip to South Africa is very slim. And Damian is scheduled to perform a literary reading next month in UK, so this Capetown thing is surely short-term.
I would be expecting Brody to pop up in the later half of season 4. But that’s just me. As for the Gansa comment, pretty sure it’s a ruse.
[P.S. If more convincing evidence surfaces, I will totally change my mind.
