The fan is finally getting hit in "Rifiki," where hostility and lack of trust feed the peaking series arc as the fates of these damaged characters begin to manifest.
Someone better yell "timber" because it's going down on The Americans.
While Elizabeth is suspiciously absent, Stan, newly enraged after the murder of Sofia and Ginaddi, gives a rousing toast to American exceptionalism. His obliviousness has never looked so sad.
The show may be pushing the marriage and Cold War and espionage metaphors a little too hard, but they're generally smart and effective in themselves.
As "Rififi" gathers its head of steam, it shows us how much Philip and Elizabeth miss one another, or at least miss what they once had.
We don't have much time left, and that ticking clock gets louder with each passing episode, even an emotionally potent one like this.
A great episode for my beloved math whiz [Henry].
I don't think it's a coincidence that in this very episode, Stan Beeman and Dennis Aderholt are at their chattiest, flush with success from finally infiltrating the Soviet "illegals" network...
I have to admire The Americans for sticking to its non-pulpy guns to the very end.
Despite the decidedly low-key response to last episode's gaping questions, there's plenty of drama to chew on in episode six.
The Americans celebrated an unseasonably chilly Thanksgiving this week... but did we witness a thaw in Philip and Elizabeth's cold war?
The pinnacle of anger and mistrust between Elizabeth and Philip was concurrent with Thanksgiving.
The beginning and ending contain the most important developments, but it's for the middle of "Rififi" that The Americans should be seen as a classic.
