The Americans - Episode 1.12 - The Oath - Preview

So I had the privilege to preview this weeks episode of “The Americans” called ''The Oath''. The season finale is nearly upon us and that makes this penultimate episode really a set up episode. This doesn't mean it's a bad episode, quite the opposite in fact, he trend of strong episodes continues to what most likely be an amazing season finale!

Two older plot threads come back in this episode, the first is Sanford Prince, who has some really valueable intel on the United States' government ''Star Wars'' programme. The other is Viola, the Weinberger's maid, who is struggling with a guilty conscience after helping Philip and Elizabeth in "The Clock''. Beeman takes more of a backseat in this episode after being heavily featured in the past few episodes, but has a poignant scene with Nina. Martha plays another essential role and there are glimmers of hope for the Elizabeth/Philip relationship!

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!
  • Nina takes the titular oath

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.
