I think Carrie was always an unlikeable hero on the show (from day one of spying on Brody behind Saul's back in her house), as she always had good intentions (just doing the wrong things in the process to get there) if that makes sense. The problem with the show in the last few seasons is she was allowed to essentially run amuck without consequences and that never happened in earlier seasons. A good example was her walking onto a US Military Base undetected in the Middle East after being wanted by the US Government for skipping out on a flight home. At some point the creators just said, "F*** it with believablity, we're moving the plot along no matter what!"

(Saul's office)
Carrie, those documents are in an impenetrable safe inside the Kremlin.

(cut to inside a safe)
Carrie stuffs documents into her pants

(Back in Saul's office)
Saul, you need to take a look at these documents.

They didn't even bother trying the last few seasons. I still chuckle every time I think of her riding away on her "secret" motorcycle.
