Rejoice, Amerifans! The hiatus is over and we’re back to discuss Season 5 episode 1 of The Americans, “Amber Waves.” Themes of loyalty and family abound as we breakdown the significance of the Jenningses’ new family and Oleg’s new job. Mischa takes a depressing bus ride, Stan “meets” someone new, Paige is the ultimate teenager, and we say goodbye to everyone’s favorite woke young spy.
