Critic Reviews for Harvest

Tonight, the nauseating chop job informed viewers about many of the same concepts it always has as well as a few new ones pertinent to what's happening in that very moment.

At its core, "Harvest" double downs on the Jenningses' most primal motivations: Elizabeth will do anything for country, and Philip will do anything for Elizabeth.

The one-last-job feel of the operation leaves the Jennings's marriage in an interesting spot.

It's a testament to the The Americans, that happy moments like that only make the darkness more impenetrable.

By traditional metrics, tonight's episode of The Americans extends the series' recent hot streak..."Harvest" stands alone in terms of pure, visceral tension.

Before Stan departs, he even searches the Jennings' garage again, as in the pilot episode: Here, The Americans' most important harvest is of the seeds planted across the series' evolution, as if to say to the doubters, "Our long con paid off."

It could have been worse. I sure thought it would be.

The Americans' aversion to climax is one of its most strangely noble qualities... Harvest is an interesting episode in this final season as it presents two markedly different approaches to climactic storytelling.

"Harvest," aside from the central heist, is less of a great episode than one filled with great individual moments.

Personally, I'm gutted at what I just watched. There are no winners. It's all so close and yet so beautifully maddening and sad.

I'm chalking up "A teenage girl's mother finally revealed the harsh truths of Cold War espionage to her daughter and pressed her into making a lifelong commitment to spycraft while walking down a sidewalk just after Thanksgiving" as a win. Weird show.

The secrets all have to start coming out now, no matter how many more people get hurt as a result.
