People keep saying it’s a bittersweet ending. It was all bitter. No one was happy. Maybe just Renee. She was either just the “ignorance is bliss” wife or the Russian spy who has not realized that her cover has not been blown yet.
But this is not a complaint. It was a fitting end to the series. P & E are back home, saving Gorbachev, but losing their kids.
Even, with the Cold War ending, would Henry and Paige want to see their parents again of they could? The kids will be pariahs in America once the word gets out that their parents were Soviet spies. That’s what happened to the children of the real life spies that were discovered. Their was always a suspicion that the kids knew about their parents’ true identities. I wouldn’t even think that Stan would be able to take care of Henry. An FBI agent who had Russian spies as neighbors and once they fled, he takes in the son? That wouldn’t raise suspicions at all.
My only complaint about the finale was that it was too short.
