The Americans - Episode 1.09 - Safe House - Preview

Previously on The Americans: Elizabeth and Phillip are having marital issues to say the least. Amador gets a little too close as Martha and Clark get even closer.

Now on The Americans: Elizabeth and Phillip are having more issues, but not with each other now. They are having difficulty telling their children about their possible split. Needless to say, neither of the children take it well. Coming from someone who’s parents have always gotten along pretty well, I can’t imagine finding out something like this. Wait till they find out they’re KGB!! Now that will be interesting!

In his other life, Phillip, or Clark rather, is busy getting it on with Martha. Clark’s wig must have been endowed with special powers or extremely sophisticated Soviet technology because it is the most resilient wig I have ever seen in my life. Not only does the “Wig of Wonder” stay on his head during his “visit” with Martha, but it also stays on during his “visit” with Amador. I’ll leave the rest of that part to Wednesday though!

The FBI meanwhile, is planning an “off-the-books mission”. This mission would be revenge for the murder of the scientist and 3 agents by the rogue German assassin, last week. Stan is hesitant to take part in this voluntary mission as it is unsanctioned by the US Government. On top of this, he can’t seem to find his old pal, Amador. The plan is to capture a Soviet operative operating in the U.S. on his morning jog. As is usual, but still exciting, things don’t go as planned.

Overall, this is an excellent episode of The Americans. The highlight of this episode is, without a doubt, the performance of Noah Emmerich as Stan Beeman. The best part of the episode, in my opinion, is the scene between a captured KGB spy and Stan where the two talk about hunting (It's a metaphor). Noah Emmerich delivers his lines perfectly. I know things like this get said a lot, but after The Americans is over (hopefully 2 decades from now) I would love to see a spinoff with Noah Emmerich. I personally think he is one of the best actors on the show and I’d love to see a prequel about his undercover work.

Rating: 9.3/10

Don’t forget to tune into The Americans on Wednesday at 10/9c on FX. Also be sure to come back here to SpoilerTV to discuss what you thought about the episode.

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
