The Americans S:1 | Pilot E:1 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV – The Americans edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of FX’s The Americans. In this episode, host Roth Cornet breaks down the episode in which In 1981, Philip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) are undercover Soviet intelligence agents from the secretive Directorate S of the KGB sent to the U.S. 15 years ago to work deep cover in Washington, D.C. Their assumed identities are a married couple who run a travel agency, and even their own children Paige (Holly Taylor) and Henry (Keidrich Sellati) do not know their secret. Before coming to the U.S., they were instructed not to share their personal lives with each other. The Jennings become stuck with Timochev, a Soviet defector they had abducted to send back to the Soviet Union, who stabs a third deep-cover agent working with them during the kidnapping. Meanwhile, FBI Counter-Intelligence Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) has moved in across the street with his family. Philip and Elizabeth must figure out what to do with Timochev, who remains locked in the trunk of their car, while they contemplate whether or not Beeman’s arrival is a coincidence. Philip, thinking of his family’s safety, tries to talk Elizabeth into defecting, but she firmly refuses. Philip unties Timochev, intending to take him to Beeman, before Elizabeth interferes. Philip then kills Timochev himself after finding out he had raped Elizabeth during training years ago, and the Jennings dump his body in the Potomac River. As a consequence, after fifteen years of marriage, Elizabeth finally trusts Philip enough to reveal details about her former life. Beeman, suspicious of Philip since they own a car similar to the one seen near the abduction, later searches their garage. He quickly leaves when he opens the car’s trunk and finds nothing. In response to Timochev’s disappearance, President Ronald Reagan issues a top secret executive order authorizing the FBI to use whatever means necessary to neutralize Soviet agents operating within the United States. There to help Roth are co-hosts Lauren Leonelli and Jenifer Golden. It’s The Americans’s “Pilot” podcast!
