The Americans - "A Little Night Music" - 3/19/14



Episode 4 / Production #204 - "A Little Night Music" (Airs March 19, 10:00 pm e/p) - Just when Philip and Elizabeth think they have a quiet road ahead, an old friend returns to complicate things. Not only do they have to intercept a target who could prove valuable to the Soviet Union, but they also have to take on an important rogue mission without the support of the Centre. Divisions inside the Rezidentura deepen between Oleg and Arkady and there's an upheaval at the FBI as the chickens come home to roost for Agent Gaad. Meanwhile, Martha's frustrations threaten to blow Philip's cover. Written by Stephen Schiff; directed by Lodge Kerrigan.

Cool episode. Big surprise there at the end. Can't wait for next week. Nice seeing Claudia again.

Does anyone know what incident Director John Boy had to take the fall for? When Stan shot that Russian embassy worker maybe?

I hope something terrible happens to Oleg. And soon. Poor Nina.

My DVR cut before the end. My recording was exactly 60 minutes, but it seems this shows always go over the hour.

What was the big surprise at the end?

Good episode though.

OK, I just checked in Comcast online, they had the episode, and watched the last 3 minutes that I was missing.

That was a great ending. I can't wait for next week.

Any idea who that couple was?

DVR did the same thing, I also watched online, good episode. I edited my series recording to go a few minutes longer hopefully that does the trick next time.

Best episode so far this season IMO. I loved the ending a true cliffhanger for next week and maybe beyond. I was a little confused at what Martha was so worried about with wanting to fill out that form but it looks like it could be trouble for Phillip. Good to see Martindale back even though her character seemed a little different like she actually cared about people for once LOL. I don't want to read too much into Elizabeth with the Navy guy but she seemed to have some feelings for him. And yeah Oleg needs to go already I think someone will 'accidentally' take him out before the season is over.

Elizabeth doesn't have feelings for the Navy guy. She was making herself vulnerable so he would help her.

You're probably right. What made me say that is when Phillip asked her how things were going with the Navy guy and she just kind of walked off like she was hiding something.

Actually I think it is more complex than that. She has true feelings for her husband now so doesn't want to cheat on him, and, although it is easy to seduce the navy guy I think she has feelings in that she doesnt want to "turn" him and ruin his life.

Not sure about that johnnysd. I mean, yes, she has feelings for her husband. But both are spies, they routinely have sex with other people. He with Martha, and she just was shown in a threesome. They see that as their job. I don't think they see that as cheating. At least right now.

Yeah I see your angle. She did look hesitant when kissing him on the neck and didn't want to have sex with him because as you said he's probably the nicest guy she's ever met during these encounters. Heck the guy didn't eve go through with getting the info she needed and he probably could have gotten it. It's a lot different for her than most of these guys she meets who are into freaky shit.

I agree with johnnysd. I think hearing that Stan admitted his affair and feelings for Nina to Phillip made Elizabeth less enthusiastic about using sex to get what they need. I think she really likes Stan and his wife, so even though she already knew about the affair, knowing that Stan is now talking about it with Phillip is distressing to her. Notice that she was less than thrilled about Phillip going to Martha's for a "lazy Sunday" and her hesitancy to get into it with the Navy guy. Only when he fails to deliver at first, does she decide to move forward and even then it's "just" a handjob.
