      Another interesting episode of The Americans today. Loved the wedding scenes with an undercover Elizabeth and the granny making an appearance! That was quite hilarious!



      Interesting scenes are happening at the FBI and in the Russian place too. A few interesting revelations, and this hopefully sets up what promises to be an excellent season finale!

      They are teasing the FBI getting close, but I just cannot buy into that because we though they are not getting caught in this year's finale. The drama is still lacking a little bit, but the show does manage to keep you interested from start to finish.

      • Arkady: This signifies our faith in the loyalty of our most trusted comrades. The oath. It is a bond that can never be broken. Say it out loud.
        Nina: Deeply valuing the trust placed upon me and grateful for the decision to send me to the sharp edge of the struggle for the interest of my people. As a worthy daughter of the homeland, I would rather perish than betray the secrets entrusted to me. With every heartbeat, with every day that passes, I swear to serve the Soviet Party, the homeland and the Soviet people.

      • Elizabeth: You're good at games, I'll give you that.
        Claudia: I enjoy the maze part and the eating-without-eating part. Pac-dots are calorie-free.

      • Elizabeth: (To Paige) The thing to understand is that we see what we need to see in people. Things that aren't really there.
