'The Walk-In' was a good continuation of the first two episodes of the season. Not too much developed with the spy family. Just more of the same.
Presumably, Emmett and Leanne are the closest friends/confidants that Philip and Elizabeth had. They probably even knew each others Russian names, but they can't even go to their funeral. They can offer almost no help to the son their friends left behind and unless the center figures out who actually killed them they will be able to get no justice for poor Emmett and Leanne. The only thing Leanne asked of Elizabeth was to deliver a letter to her son should she and her husband meet an early end, and Elizabeth couldn't do it. Delivering that letter would've certainly meant even more pain and confusion for Jared, but I can't help but feel badly that their last request for their son won't be carried out.
The scene where Elizabeth decided she was ready to have kids really served to show just how far she and Philip have come as a couple. What was once cold and awkward has blossomed into a real partnership. I guess it's just one more thing they had to get used to. Also interesting is the fact that Elizabeth decided it was time to have kids was because she thought Philip would be a good father. If something happened to the Jennings would it be the Beemans that take their children in? Aunt Helen?
It's strange to me that now that Elizabeth and Philip are more committed to their partnership as spouses and parents, their daughter is starting to ask questions. Paige is getting more and more suspicious, and tonight I was seriously worried for her safety. I've been worried that she would find out the truth and what the ramifications of that would be, but tonight's episode brought me an aha moment. The KGB isn't going to be bested by a teenage girl. If she gets too close to the truth, they could just take her out. She could be brutally murdered at any time and it would make complete sense and serve the story as an engaging plot twist. Oddly enough, if Paige gets what she wants and finds out the truth, she will be in for exactly what Elizabeth just saved Jared from. Is it a given that the love they have for their daughter is greater than the love of their country?
Bruce Dameran, the walk-in, is dead.
Stan shot him.
Do we know who Bruce was aiming to snipe?
I guess whatever information he had to share wasn't worth it to Nina's boss. They had her sell him out pretty quickly.
The threat Elizabeth delivered to the factory worker was SCARY and effective!
The Tab soda machine gave me a chuckle.
Seeing Philip play bad cop was different. Up until now, he's been the fun parent compared to colder Elizabeth. He pulled out all the stops, didn't he? Shaming her for wanting more family and I'm pretty sure there was at least one "young lady" tossed around.
Is Paige's new curly haired friend a KGB tail??
Philip: "The center is gonna put someone on them. Just while we are gone. They won't see them... We won't see them."
Elizabeth: "Is that supposed to make us feel better?"
Philip: "I think so. Yea."
Fairly good filler episode.
