The Americans' Holly Taylor Has an Awesome Pitch for How Paige Should End Up

If The Americans showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg need some ideas on how to end the drama next year, Holly Taylor has a pretty great suggestion.

Asked how she would want Paige's storyline to wrap up, the actress says she hopes the teen will follow in Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth's (Keri Russell) footsteps and become not just a spy but a double agent.

"I think it'd be cool if Paige was working in the FBI, like maybe Stan (Noah Emmerich) got her an internship or something," Taylor told at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews. "And that was her way in and she becomes and FBI agent, but really, she's getting information for her parents."

Poor Stan. He'd be in the dark again -- unless Emmerich's wish for Stan comes true. Check out the video to see what his dream ending would be.

Season 5 of The Americans premieres Tuesday, March 7 at 10/9c on FX.

I believe at the end of last season, the show was set in 1983 with Paige a freshmen in high shool. That put her high school graduation at 1986 and her college graduation at 1990. She'd still have to wait another year or two to even apply for the FBI (23 is the minium age). That puts her at 1991 or 1992, which would coincide with the end of the Cold War.

And/But, they could reboot the show to today with Page as a veteran FBI agent, perhaps in a leadership role, who's now working as a spy for Putin.

Enough with Paige already! Give Henry something to do.
