We thought last week was the most depressing episode yet of The Americans. Well, we were wrong! Nothing goes right this week, from travel agency finances and fancy school payments to sensor heists to trips to watch a World Series Game 6! And Philip can’t even get a snuggle from Elizabeth! Sadness abounds in The Americans Season 6 Episode 4 “Mr. and Mrs. Teacup” which aired April 18, 2018. It was written by Peter Ackerman and directed by Roxann Dawson.
This is Episode 113 and contains the news and our episode breakdown and analysis. To hear our history, tech of yesteryear, and feedback segments stay tuned for Episode 114.
Two choice items are in the news. Russian propaganda arm Russia Today offers up a look at Hollywood’s malicious propaganda that dehumanizes all Russians. Take it with a heaping helping of salt. Then we have a neat introspective piece in America Magazine on how “The Americans” highlights the dangers of consumerism.
We recommence right where we left off – in the park with that hot new couple, Oleg and Philip! Oleg then checks in with Igor using cool spy codes, and then Igor gives the real scoop to Arkady! Elizabeth tries to steal a sensor, and all she gets are 3 more dead guys! Dennis ropes Stan back into marriage counseling, and Henry learns Philip can’t pay! At least Philip can still line dance! Unfortunately that’s all he can do since Elizabeth is too tired to even cuddle. She does convince Erica and Glenn to check out a World Series Game 6 with stomach-upsetting results! To top it all off, Paige ignores Elizabeth and goes all honeypot on a mark!
