Philip moved back home, Paige started connecting the dots about her parents extracurricular activities, Nina played Stan (officially joining the double agent ranks), Claudia was on the verge of being reassigned, and Elizabeth was (seriously but not fatally) shot.

COMING UP NEXT | Whereas the first season focused on Philip and Elizabeth’s marriage, Season 2 will concentrate on “the family as a whole,” previews exec producer Joel Fields, with Paige’s continuing suspicions driving much of that narrative. Elsewhere, despite her commitment to CBS’ The Millers, Margo Martindale will be back as “Handler” Claudia for several episodes (fellow EP Joe Weisberg calls her return “emotional” and “surprising”); Philip’s “crazy and dangerous” faux marriage to Martha will continue to be explored; and Russian actor Costa Ronin joins the cast as a young KGB officer with “a talent for technology,” teases Fields.
