The Americans 1.10 FAQ
What’s it called?
Teleplay is credited to Bradford Winters (“Oz,” “Boss”).
What says FX?
“Stan pursues a lead that puts him on the trail to one of Gregory's crew members, closing the gap between him and Elizabeth, and reigniting some of the deepest conflicts between her and Philip.”
Who is Gregory again?
The African-American KGB operative who used to bone Elizabeth. He’s played by Derek Luke (who played the title role in “Antwone Fisher” and Gabe Jones in “Captain America”).
How does it start?
“Don’t,” Elizabeth tells Philip as she drops him at his motel.
What’s doing with Martha and Clark?
No disguises this week, but Martha looks pretty sad about Chris Armador’s death.
Since Philip is boning Martha, isn’t the gap betwixt Philip and Beeman already smaller than the gap between Beeman and Elizabeth?
The big news?
The fatalities don’t seem to slow this week.
What else is FX not telling us?
Beeman gets a surprising offer.
Gregory and Gregory’s associate Curtis. Granny Claudia’s plans. The chaos nudity. “We’re not monsters.” “That’s all he wanted with his life.” “Do you know why I’m the best at my job?”
What’s not so good?
It’s not super-difficult to see where this episode is going.
How does it end, spoiler boy?
Elizabeth and the kids sit down to dinner.
10 p.m. Wednesday. FX.
