My assumption about New Hampshire is that they must have an agreed exit strategy and have a safe house waiting for them there.


I'm stil quite enjoying Imposters. But, I agreee about Uma Thurman.


I just finished season 2 of 3%, which I enjoyed. I assume that's it. It seemed like the end.

An exit strategy, of course! I've overlooked that because of The Centre problem. They can go to a hideout but now they're stuck wherever they go. That was a real dumb move by Elizabeth.




Glad you liked 3%! I can barely recall the ending but I wasn't left thinking it was over. If there is a 3rd season then I assume it focuses on whether the offshore deliver on the deal in full.





Lots of things I'm watching are ending so if I'm reeaaaaally desperate I might finish Imposters.

I haven't seen the promo, but I was so hoping that they'd shown both episodes as a 2-hour finale. I can't believe I've to wait until next week! Aaarrrhhh.


I thought Philip had got away clean, so I didn't quite get why he used the "get out now" code, if that's what it was. That's what it looked like, didn't it?


Poor Tatiana, she didn't recognise her to start with. She didn't even get any lines in her last episode.


I think, even without seeing the promo, next week's is going to be intense.

Philip did get away clean but I think he invoked the "get out now" code because of all the days events. What startled Philip into action was being informed by Father Andrei that Father Victor was speaking to the FBI that day, although I'm not entirely sure why that spooked him. Then of course being chased and also Stan turns up out of the blue at his work. Stan visiting was not enough in isolation but with the other two events he probably guessed things are about to go tits up.




I looked the trailer up online as I wasn't sure if next week was the finale or not. It is sadly. All the other seasons were 13 episodes.


The finale is definitely going to be explosive:













and as Elizabeth cut ties with The Centre, now they have nobody to extract the them. The Centre would probably kill them if they didn't have to leave themselves.






The scene with Pastor Tim left me on the edge of my seat. I was so sure he would tell on them.


Was Tatiana the woman in the blonde wig Elizabeth shot?

Thanks, OK, seen it now. Ooooh.





Yes, that makes sense, that it was everything coming together. Yep, Tatiana was that woman she shot, who was Oleg's girlfriend for a bit.


Completely agree about the Pastor Tim scene.


If Stan knows about them, then he can get to Henry. But would he do that?


This has been such a fantastic series. I don't know what the viewing figures have been like, but I get the impression that it's been very overlooked.

Henry IDK. I reckon Stan thinks he's clueless but Paige he might suspect after Henry mentioned she met this Aunt character. As it's the last episode, I assume Henry has to pop up in some way if for no other reason than to confirm he's heard nothing from his family and life is normal from his perspective. If the Jennings went to get Henry it would look too suspicious, waste time and they wouldn't be able to convince him to leave with them.




Seems like the Thanksgiving scenario was enough to spook Stan. It's more important than Xmas in the US.





I watched it again just to be sure it was the day's events. It's easy to forget the training they originally had because the show is mainly about their assignments. Looking back, I don't think they've been in a situation where their cover was so at risk as to be followed by agents. It's usually been the people they were assigned to.





Not sure why Stan was picking at the money thread. He was surprised Henry had been told about the financial difficulties but Henry forgot to mention he was informed in relation to his college fees. Philip refusing Stan's offer wasn't such a big deal in a male pride sort of way but once something starts to smell fishy then everything comes under scrutiny I suppose.





Can't think why they will want to go to New Hampshire. Any ideas on that one? I was thinking they probably can't go to the Russian embassy as it's connected to The Centre.





Oh yeah, Imposters got too silly to continue with. IDK why but Uma Thurman is just off-putting to me in this series now. Handmaids is still good.
