501 collage

Season 5 episode 10 of The Americans, “Darkroom,” delves into themes of happiness and home before dropping the biggest bombshell to date: Philip and Elizabeth get real married!! You Guys! Married! It was the sweetest, cutest, most perfect thing ever and we can’t even. Other topics include but are not limited to: Renee Watch ’84, the wedding, Pasha not being a real character, the wedding, Sofia’s surprisingly naive behavior, the wedding, Pastor Tim’s function in the narrative, Paige’s journey, and that spectacular ending sequence.

Stay tuned after the podcast for a discussion of American Gods, Better Call SaulThe Leftovers, and much more!
