The Americans 1.6 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to Sneha Koorse (the webisode series “Warehouse 13: Grand Designs”).
What says FX?
“A mole hunt within the KGB causes suspicion amongst allies and shatters trust within the Jennings’ marriage. Meanwhile, Stan’s plan to keep his mole safe puts her at even greater risk of discovery.”
How does it start?
With a great teaser. “How does this happen?” Elizabeth asks Philip.
The big news?
The Jennings kids and Martha (the FBI clerk “Clark” has been regularly debriefing) have something in common this week.
What else is FX not telling us?
There’s a brown Dodge sedan.
Beeman. Elizabeth in action. “I’m going home.” “They don’t speak Russian, do they?” “Show them your face!!” “What happened today has to be our secret.”
What’s not so good?
I think the start of the Jennings’ tale this week is undermined a bit by cross-cutting it with what Beeman and his boss Gaad are up to at the FBI.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
“Yeah, I think that says it all.”
10 p.m. Wednesday. FX.
