The wife/baby situation was handled brilliantly. One could see there was no intention to let them escape, but the twist of having the baby returned to Robert's parents made perfect sense from the Soviet point of view. To their way of thinking there was no way the child of a russian father was going to be left in Cuba, raised by its Puerto Rican mother. To them the baby was russian and one can see they would be thinking they were doing the right and proper thing. The fact that Phillip/Elizabeth didn't see it that way is an indication of just how americanized they have become, which I'm sure their new boss is aware of.
