The Americans S:1 | Gregory E:3 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV – The Americans edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of FX’s The Americans. In this episode, hosts Lauren Leonelli, Jenifer Golden, and Joe Braswell break down the episode in which Nina, the FBI’s new KGB asset, tells Agent Beeman about an agent who had been killed the same night Timochev went missing. The dead agent is shown to be Rob, the man Timochev had stabbed. The FBI trace him to an address in Philadelphia and discover he has a wife named Joyce (Audrey Esparza) and child. The Jennings receive a curious newspaper message from Rob in the classifieds, placed after his death, scheduling a meet in Philadelphia. Suspicious, Philip suggests having their agent Gregory (Derek Luke), a former black militant whom Elizabeth had recruited, use his “team” to go to the meet. Unknown to Philip, Elizabeth and Gregory had been in love; however, she now refuses his advances, saying that she and Philip are getting along better. At the meet, Gregory deduces that Joyce had set up the meeting, unaware she is being followed by an FBI surveillance team. Using his team to create obstacles, Gregory is able to snatch her without the FBI seeing. Joyce gives Philip a coded note from Rob. Gregory tells Philip about his and Elizabeth’s relationship, in an effort to get Philip to give her up. Claudia (Margo Martindale), the Jennings’ new KGB supervisor whom Philip calls “Grannie”, tells him to contact the person mentioned in the note. The contact gives him schematics for an anti-ballistic-missile laser. Since the FBI has issued a kidnapping charge for Joyce, the Jennings hand her and baby over to Claudia. Elizabeth later explains to Philip how she has felt for the last 20 years being forced into marriage. Her affair with Gregory stemmed from each having a passion for their work. Claudia tells Joyce that she and her baby will be relocated to Cuba; however, Joyce is seen apparently killed by the KGB in a staged drug overdose and the baby is handed over to Rob’s parents in the Soviet Union. It’s The American’s “Gregory” podcast!
