Storyline

Just when Philip and Elizabeth think they have a quiet road ahead, an old friend returns to complicate things. Not only do they have to intercept a target who could prove valuable to the Soviet Union, but they also have to take on an important rogue mission without the support of the Centre. Divisions inside the Rezidentura deepen between Oleg and Arkady and there's an upheaval at the FBI as the chickens come home to roost for Agent Gaad. Meanwhile, Martha's frustrations threaten to blow Philip's cover. Written by Anonymous

a good episode
29 February 2016 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

I write this mainly because only other review of this episode here, up to now, seem to be gratuitously wrong headed in its criticism.

While it is true that this series has the usual unbelievable plot elements that plague spy stories, TV series, and movies (time and place compression, with way too much violence and excitement, when in real world spying is a tedious boring job with not much violent action), what makes it special here is the way all of that is put together and presented, interesting and complex characters, and their interaction, especially as a family.

Secondly, other reviewer is wrong on specific points he/she makes.

For instance, children do not question about the car because they use other cars in addition to their family car. Viewer would have noticed this if he/she saw the Pilot episode when they used the family car to hide the captured defector and used a different car meanwhile, giving a false explanation to children.

In another example, while there is no doubt she is trying to manipulate the sailer (based on his character as briefed to her), an attentive viewer would have noticed that Elisabeth's rape account is not all fake (she was raped in the exact same way by a different person, see Pilot) and she is affected by what she recounts. That may explain her half success in the effort, than her 'magical' abilities.

In judging a series like this, one must take the genre at their own terms and then examine what the creators are doing with them. They are doing great in this series.
