    The Americans "In Control" Review: False Alarm

    With a universe shown through individuals whose lives wholly revolve around the hypothetical conflict of two disparate nations, "In Control" gave us some tangible examples of what the crucial step just before war might actually look like: political machinations, unburied weapons, and scoped-out targets.

  • Episode Summary

    An assassination attempt on President Reagan causes chaos in both the FBI and KGB. Stan puts pressure on his new spy to find out if the Soviets were responsible.
