This ain’t your average mother-daughter trip.
On The Americans last week, Philip (Matthew Rhys) insisted that Elizabeth (Keri Russell) go see her dying mother in Russia and take Paige (Holly Taylor) with her. On Wednesday’s Season 3 finale (10/9c, FX), we’ll see that entering Mother Russia is easier said than done.
Yes, they will visit with Elizabeth’s mother, but the trip will do more damage than good in currying favor with a still-angry Paige. (Related: The episode is called “March 8, 1983,” the date of Reagan’s infamous speech in which he called the Soviet Union an “evil empire.”)
Will Paige — or Elizabeth — do something rash?
