Everyone's favourite K G B couple is thrown into another ugly situation. The couple has to find an out source assassin who is contracted to kill American scientists. Mutually Assured Destruction unravels how the K G B agents track down the assassin, and how the assassin works. The confrontations and activities are quite violent. Mutually Assured Destruction is an adrenaline pumping episode. I bet the K G B agents enjoy their work. The hotel scene is memorable. The episode resonates with the viewer. The assassin enjoys his work and refuses to give up the hunt. This episode is a turning point episode as it turns the heat up on the series. I give M A D an eight out of ten.

The Americans Mutually Assured Destruction

With most American marriages sometime the husband and wife get divorced and Philip and Elizabeth have been together for such a long time and now they seem to be separating to keep their mission first over feelings which lately is all Elizabeth has seemed to be doing. Elizabeth found the truth of Philip with Irena which really pushed her to her final decision. The search for the KGB mole has seemed to slow down keeping Nina safe for the moment and she gets to have some fun with Stan with the new apartment they meet in. Philip spent most of the episode as Clarke as he slept with Martha twice even though she works closely in the FBI which lead to a jealous Chris following her home which cannot be good thing for Philip as his identity could be blown. The story line involving Stan was maybe a bit better but I still find him a weak part to the show and Margo in her one scene per episode is nice because on screen she is compelling as she makes this small role as a KGB officer a nice addition especially when Claudia speaks with Elizabeth in the car. Nice episode but not one of their best ever.

EPISODE GRADE: B- (MVP: Kerri Russell)
