The Americans Review: "Safe House"

After a week off the air, The Americans returned with it's most intense episode of the season. "Safe House" even beat out the episode when the Jennings were tortured.

With the FBI on high alert after the KGB presumably (they did) killed two FBI agents and a scientist, the tension got bumped up due to a jealous ex-boyfriend. Happenstance can be unfortunate, and in this case, it cost two men their lives.

Before I get into the heart of the episode, I have to mention Elizabeth and Philip's ridiculous decision to split up. After over a decade of living together as uncover KGB spies in an arranged marriage, they decided to take a break over one lie? They finally fell in love with each other and threw it away too quickly. Yes, Philip technically lied about sleeping with Irina, but he was on a mission. She had to go into the hospital showing signs of both a physical attack and sexual activity. If she didn't, the plan wouldn't have worked.

Check out the preview for the next episode "Only You."
