I watched this week's episode of The Americans last night and found it as compelling as ever. It was as darkly disturbing and just plain sad as anything I have seen on TV. Phillip and Elizabeth may regard themselves as soldiers and the violence they do as warfare but to me the killings they commit are just bloody murder. At least Phillip had the sensitivity to feel bad for cutting the throat of the boy who happened on to Phillip on the Army base.
What was the story with the truck driver Phillip and Elizabeth left tied up before they stole his truck? He was alive when they left but dead when they came back. I can't figure it out.
I had the idea that the preacher intuited just how dangerous Phillip was when Phillip made the late night call on the preacher but I'm glad he did. At least Phillip didn't kill him.
