Ask Matt – Various Shows – 22nd April 2013

Question:Is there any hope we’re going to see Philip and Elizabeth reconcile or make up a little on The Americans before this season ends? I’m not looking for all their problems to be worked out, but watching the last few weeks has been such a disappointment. The sexual tension and chemistry between those two was phenomenal the first half of the season. As much as I like the spy work, it’s not as interesting to watch when you completely take out the romance and make them into robots. — Hannah
Matt Roush:I don’t know where the show’s going in the finale (and if I did, I probably wouldn’t tell you, this isn’t that sort of column), but I have all kinds of hope that Philip and Elizabeth will continue to try to work things out. The fact that we’re frustrated by their lack of connection and maddeningly bad timing — when one wants to make up, the other misconstrues or has other priorities — is a sign that we care, and that’s a good thing. Elizabeth’s emotional breakthrough in last week’s episode is a positive sign that she will fight as hard for this relationship as she has for her homeland. That’s a major development for this character, and a clear sign that they’re anything but robots. But if you’re expecting a conventional romance here, you’re almost certainly going to be disappointed.

Should I totally give up on anything good happening to Elizabeth and Phillip on the Americans? — Val
It’s not easy out there for a spy, that’s for sure. And Elizabeth in particular is going to be pretty broken up by the end of tonight’s episode after someone make a big sacrifice. And by broken up I mean she wears her poker face and remains internally in shambles. IT’S IN THE EYES, GUYS.

Question: Does Margo Martindale’s casting in CBS’ Will Arnett pilot mean her Americans handler Claudia is about to get whacked? I hope not. I love the dynamic between her and Elizabeth (Keri Russell). —Julie
Ausiello: From the sounds of it, FX’s espionage thriller isn’t letting the Emmy winner go without a fight. “We love Margo,” says exec producer Joel Fields, before adding (with tongue planted firmly in cheek), “Look, we’re The Americans. We’re spies. And I would never threaten anybody else in the business or at another network, but we love Margo. And Claudia is part of The Americans. So [CBS] can TRY to come after her and put her in another pilot. But they should be aware of the KGB. The KGB is a very powerful organization with a long reach.” Hope that answered your question, Julie!
