Can Philip have a sadder face? He outdoes himself this week! Plus, Elizabeth gets to kill someone. Wha? And the Oleg-Stan bromance recommences! It awaits us in The Americans Season 6 Episode 3 “Urban Transport Planning” which aired April 11, 2018. It was written by Tracey Scott Wilson and directed by Dan Attias.
This is Episode 111 and contains the news and our episode breakdown and analysis. To hear our history, tech of yesteryear, and feedback segments stay tuned for Episode 112.
We have three great items in the news this week. First up a terrific interview in Vulture with Noah Emmerich who says he won’t miss playing Stan! Next we have Paste’s opinion that The Americans is reaffirming its status as one of TV’s best portraits of marriage, and we wind up with Film School Rejects’ deep dive into the tragic score of The Americans.
Then it’s time for the Elizabeth body count to begin! (Spoiler: one tonight. That we know of!) Apart from Elizabeth mayhem, she and Philip have radically different approaches to dealing with Paige. Stan continues his new role as marriage counselor along with his political asylum offerings. We learn all about Russian cooking at Chez Claudia! The bromance we all wanted to see, Oleg and Stan, fires up! Bonus points for Haskard and his baseball jacket! And Henry checks in!
