Last Week's Episode: 'The Americans' Season 4 Episode 10 'Munchkins' Tests Your Faith BriefingThe week started off pretty well for the Jennings before ending very, very badly. Pastor Tim (Kelly AuCoin) came over to sincerely apologize for what they went through when he went missing ("because of my own stupidity"), giving Phillip and Elizabeth confidence in the couple keeping quiet going forward about their secret identities. Then Elizabeth's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day began. First, her request to find another way to complete her mission without using Young Hee (Ruthie Ann Miles) was turned down, leading her to fake a pregnancy and then a suicide, all to allow her "family" to go visit her husband, Don (Rob Yang), at work.
