Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Vitaly Benko ...


Henry locks himself out when father Philip 'moves out for a while' due to obviously grim marital tension, but Paige firmly blames ever most unreasonable parent Elisabeth. New 'rezident' Arkady Ivanovich can't make head or tail of a phone call he receives with exuberant demands for the release of his lowly agent Vlad, who was picked up while jogging in his place. The poor youth is tortured to no end and killed by frustrated Beeman, who initially refused to partake in the officially unauthorized operation revenge for the rocket shield scientist bombing. Written by KGF Vissers

The Americans Safe House
4 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Philip makes one stupid mistake which he borough Elizabeth in on which will not work out well for them. This mistake was a misunderstanding when Philip as Clarke was confronted by Chris and after a fight Chris was stabbed and the two just kept him alive for such a long time only for him to die in the end. The character of Chris was OK when on the show but I felt they handled his death well through the flashbacks with Stan and also the scenes Elizabeth and Philip wanted information off him. This decision on the show could be a changing point for the main characters and I wonder how they will handle it further on from now. Chris's death was the main part of the episode but another good point is how the show handled the separation of Elizabeth and Philip from Paige's hatred to Henry facing depression. Overall a nice episode with a game changer and some nice scenes between characters.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Matthew Rhys)
