    The Americans "Covert War" Review: I Want to Know What Love Is

    We're coming to a close pretty soon here on The Americans, and with two more likely very intense episodes after this one, it makes sense that "Covert War" played things fairly low-key. Or at least it felt that way coming…

    EDIT

    A personal situation in Moscow causes Elizabeth to embark on a mission which puts the couple in danger from both the FBI and the KGB.

    • Interesting but anticlimactic.

      8.5
      This episode was goin g somewhere with a very interesting storyline but it kinda capitulated with an anticlimactic conclusion to the episode, which left me disappointed.



      There was a bit of action and suspense but it fizzled away, and the storyline with Stan and his wife was not going anywhere to be frank.



      I feel like this episoed is a step back from the more interesting ones we have had in recent weeks, unfortunately.moreless

      6.5
      A boring side storyline and side plot for the Elizabeth character that really slowed down the current momentum of the series and detracted from where things appeared to be going. Not the most exciting hour of TV.
