Another good episode. I like the tight rope they're walking, making Phillip and Elizabeth easy to identify with even as they grow more ruthless in doing their jobs. Torn between wanting them to get away with it while at the same time wanting them to get their just desserts. Good and evil are hard to define on this show, there really are no heroes...much like it must be for real spys, I'm thinking.
With all the perils gathering around Phillip and Liz I just hope the show doesn't paint itself into a corner, giving us a far fetched explaination for their survival . Justified gets away with that every season, but that's part of its charm. For The Americans to work their must be some semblance of reality, or its just another Homeland. Still, its great storytelling, and the acting is first rate.
