The Americans - Episode 1.08 - Mutually Assured Destruction - Preview

So I had the privilege to preview this weeks episode of “The Americans” and it is another solid episode. Being a show that already has a stellar first season so far, means this is only a good thing. Continuing where the previous episode left off where Elizabeth and Philip promised each other they wanted to try. Alas, being in love and in a marriage is never easy. Certainly not when other people start poking their noses into it! 

''Mutually Assured Destruction'' the title seems to affect it's characters as much as it references the nuclear standoff between the USA and the USSR. A lot of relationships being portrayed on the show seem to be heading towards that destruction as allegiances come under suspicion or by betrayal.

 There will be no major story spoilers in this article, but I will give you some teasers. So stop reading now if you don't want to know anything more!

  • The leadership of the KGB is divided 
  • Martha fans rejoice, she has some spicy sex scenes this week 
  • Philip and Elizabeth show off what a great team they are when working together 
  • Keep your children away from (shot)guns 
  • Someone will be painting the bathroom walls 
I hope you enjoyed reading this article and enjoy watching ''The Americans'' at 10 PM EST on FX!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
