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.

Review of Season 1: Episodes 7-9
15 February 2015 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

For the last three episodes "The Americans" are starting to suck me in. The story is very good and intriguing, acting is very solid, and each episode manages to surprise you a bit - and that's a very good sign.

In the last three episodes nothing groundbreaking didn't happen, but it will - evens told in 7,8,9 episodes are important and they will lead eventually to a showdown.

Overall, "The Americans" are on a very solid road so far, and with each episode i start to like it more and more.

My votes for last three episodes: episode 7 - vote 8, episode 8 - vote 9, episode 9 - vote 9.
