Nina reports about the dead man being an S agent. The FBI manages to find Robert's wife and baby. Phillip and Elizabeth receive a message from the dead Robert. They use Gregory, a lover of Elizabeth's, to make the contact and get her and the baby away from FBI watchers. She gives them a phone number which leads to another number. Elizabeth ends things with Gregory so Gregory tells Philip about them. Gabriel's replacement (Grannie) shows up tailing them and tells them Robert had a contact selling them missile defense technology. Phillip makes the buy and is cut during a fight with the buyer's overzealous thugs. They deliver the information, Robert's widow and baby to their new contact but unbeknownst to them only the baby makes it alive to Robert's parents in the Soviet Union. Written by Anonymous

(At around 10:00) there is a calm but suspenseful outdoor scene, where, in a span of one minute, you see three 1990's and newer vehicles in the background: a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado, a 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio and a 2010 Nissan Juke. See more »

Review of Season 1: Episodes 1-3
3 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"The Americans" (2013-) first three episodes were good. It introduced us to a main characters so far, it gave us a plot (which i kinda fresh and original). The main characters aren't really deep written of shown yet, but i think we will get to that point - they are spies by the way, so it should be a mystery after all. From the first seconds of the pilot we are thrown into an action with no clear explanations, and later we are starting to see a bigger picture.

Acting of this show so far was OK, nothing special, everyone does they job good, with the exception of Keri Russell perhaps, which i think gives a best performance so far. Directing, script are good, they always show something interesting and so far it haven't dragged.

Looking forward to see how it will continue.
