I wonder if Claudia will get to stay around now that she obviously isn't as evil as the two of them think.

That show is meh. Not sure I'll stick around for the second season. It just moves at a glacial pace.

^^ I don't think so as the actress who plays her, Margo Martindale, has been cast in a new tv series pilot.

hopefully that pilot is one of the ones that doesn't get picked and becomes nothing.

I thought they discussed reassigning Claudia, as to set up her leaving.

^yeah, they definitely did that to set it up in case she can't come back

if her other pilot gets picked up, they have a legit built-in reason for her not to be on the show anymore

if it doesn't, i'm sure they could figure out a way to get her back involved, especially with the stuff she did in the finale (i would think/hope she'd be back in the good graces of elizabeth)

this show is great, i thought the finale was awesome if a little unsatisfying as a season finale

Just caught up on the final two episodes.

Sooner or later that FBI agent will have a Hank from breaking bad moment when he keeps looking at the drawings of the couple.

One of the things I can't help but think about is how hard it would be to pull off some of these spy events today. For example, every parking deck has a camera and there is no way they would have gotten in and out of that parking garage in the finale. There would also be photos of them as a couple all over the place.

back this week and I'm really looking forward to it.

Trying to decide if I should re-watch a few eps from last season to refresh the story lines or just stick with the episode summaries.

Great way to start the seasons. Good mixture of action, tension, and Keri Russell's ass

So thoughts on who killed the other spy couple? I'm immediately led to think it was the Russian government -- after what they did last season with the torture stuff it wouldn't surprise me. I doubt the American government had anything to do with it as I don't see them being so ruthless that they would take out the daughter too. That and I'd think Beeman would know something about it. Also, perhaps that the father of the other couple KNEW someone was out to kill him/his family so he told Phil to do the hand-off so that perhaps his family would be targeted instead?

Finally caught last weeks episode. This series continues to deliver.

I'm guessing it was the Afghans who killed the other family.

More naked Nina =

I watched the last 3 episodes last night to catch up. Good shit all around. Kinda bummed that Lucia died though, she was a hottie (freakiny psycho hottie though).

I'm a bit curious as to the placement of their rage at the US over the fake military plans stuff. It's not like the US handed them over on good faith. The Russians stole them, and then call the US immoral b/c of that, and blame them for the death of their navy men? Yeah that makes sense.

Damn, that part when he cut that dude's throat was intense. I figured he was just gonna choke him out or put him to sleep or something. Then when those dudes showed up I thought his cover was completely blown. Good episode.

Also, what is "ast"? Beeman's wife (who is a hottie herself honestly) said she met a guy from ast?

I don't know. I mean, this hasn't been a bad show but the series isn't as compelling for me as it was during season 1. I do like the development with Philip but we sort of saw that story (albeit from a commitment to the cause angle) last year. The show just isn't offering me anything new.

I'll still watch, of course, because I'm a sucker for period dramas.

I still really enjoy the show, but I feel like the season as a whole has been much slower than last season. Last episode seemed to pick up the pace a little bit so hopefully that continues.

Yeah I'm not as captivated as I was last season, otherwise I would be watching weekly, instead of the occasional 2-3 episode binge.

Also, why did Philip say to his son that the Camaro had 380 hp. Damn thing in that year didn't even have half that horsepower

Yeah, I'm really interested to see how Beeman's gonna get out of his situation. And they should have killed the Navy SEAL when they had the chance.

I'm impressed with all the rave reviews this show has garnered for it's second season. Seems to be on almost every critic's top ten list of 2014.

whew - they're not letting off the gas, are they? i'm wondering if they're trying to leverage Nina for something in the season, or if the news of her conviction was passing her off as good as dead and done for the series. can't find anything about Annet Mahendru being in season 3

as an aside, did people really use the term "balling" to refer to fucking in the 80's? i always thought it was more of a 90's thing.

Umm, so what's up with this other show coming out, Allegiance? Seems like a very blatant rip off.

Yes it is a ripoff. Except it won't be as good and it's not set in the 80's.

Considering Led Zeppelin used it as a lyric in a song from like 1970...

I just binged this show on Amazon Prime over the past couple weeks and I'm all caught up. I distinctly remember seeing Nina being interrogated by Beeman during a trailer for season 3 between episodes. Great show!
