Henry Jennings (credit only)


Moskow orders to spare no risks to buy priceless SDI secrets offered by a US colonel in gambling debt, even after an unrelated arrest. Philip moves into his own apartment and wins FBI secretary Martha's full trust by secret marriage to convince her to plant a bug in Beeman's boss Gaad's office. Tipped off by remorseful cleaner Violet, the FBI learns about the KGB bug in Defense Secretary Weinberger's home office and plans feeding false information trough there. Nina no longer believes Beeman's extraction promises and confesses her high treason to new KGB resident and lover Arkady Zotov. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


During the closing of the wedding vows when the minister pronounces Phillip and Martha as married, his power to do so is derived from "state of Virginia". Virginia is a commonwealth and would not be referred to as a state during the marriage ceremony . See more »


Elizabeth Jennings: Congratulations. It was touching. No, it was. I didn't expect it to be. You and I were never really married.
Philip Jennings: No.
Elizabeth Jennings: It's funny I know they're just words people say. Do you think things would have been different between us if we would have said them?
Philip Jennings: I don't know.

"For your recommended daily allowance of SDI"
25 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

(Look up "Brilliant Pebbles" on Wikipedia.)

I can't be the only viewer who screamed in frustration at the end of that episode. Nina is smart, Martha is dumb, and Caspar Weinberger's maid doesn't want to burn in hell. Stan demonstrates how he is too close to the trees to see the forest of Elizabeths on the projector screen.

Will Nina be sent home to be executed, or will she get a chance to take revenge on Stan for Vlad? Will Martha see the sketch of Phillip and recognise her new husband? Is another agency, maybe defense intelligence, behind the SDI microfilm?

The dominos are falling, and our antiheroes the Jennings are at the end of the row. Now that they're finally looking in the same relationship direction, just like we always wanted, they're lined up as targets of circumstance and coincidence.

One episode left. How can the writers tie up all the plot lines and still leave enough for another season?

I can't wait to find out!
