How 'The Americans' Solved The Eternal TV Problem Of The Surly Teen

From an NPR article, including this theory that I hadn't considered before...

"In the final scene of the season four finale, Paige and her father walk home from their FBI-agent neighbor's house, where Paige has, unbidden, engaged in a passionate makeout session with the neighbor's son.

Why she did this is left to us to decide. There seems to be a real attraction, but we're also led to believe Paige has taken it on herself to become intimate with the son as a means to gather intelligence and protect her family."

Just like Mom, using her feminine whiles to control men. Mata Hari in the making ...

Next year, she will become a lot less childlike and a lot more sexual ... if I read my unibrows correctly!

I wouldn't have thought much of it (the kissing/cuddling stuff), playing it off as mainly adolescent attraction. But when Philip offered his stern rebuke to Paige (on the way back home), I knew right then that's what he was thinking; his daughter was heading down a treacherous path.

My wife was like, I thought you said this was the season finale. I said it was, she said, did we not record enough and miss something?


Man that was a weird ending.


Oh well, I kind of hope they flip and want to become double agents, but I doubt it will happen. Not sure what their end game is with this show.

Am I the only one who expects next season to have Paige carrying Stan's grandchild? The way that scene was progressing when they started making out all I could think of was "Fast Times at Ridgemont High's" dugout scene! Only thing missing was the Jackson Browne music.....

Fresh from the HOTP thread.... This looks fun! Who knew Philip Jennings was such a foodie (winey?)...? I wonder if he'll review any Russian wine? Is there any Russian wine?

Uncork a Bottle of Chianti, Because Matthew Rhys and Matthew Goode’s The Wine Show Is Coming to Hulu
By Devon Ivie, Vulture.com (New York Magazine) - Jul. 8, 2016

EXCLUSIVE: Rejoice, citizens of the United States, because the next best post–Downton Abbey British television import will soon be upon us. Vulture can exclusively announce that The Wine Show — hosted by the charmingly dapper Matthew Rhys and Matthew Goode, and previously only available on ITV in the U.K. — will be streaming on Hulu beginning Saturday, August 13.

While you may just be enthused about the prospect of watching the Matthews bask in the glistening Tuscan sunshine and speaking in their native accents, the series will center on the duo discovering the world’s most fascinating wines and the unique stories behind them. A hearty, swoony cheers to that!

Thanks. Intended to post this but didn't want to disrupt the Rachael Ray soliloquy.
