One more episode until the finale. Another filler episode until the very last scene...

The implications of those final few seconds are going to boomerang something fierce.

Is it bad for me to say, I'd be perfectly okay with Paige being written out of the show? The character and storyline seem like they're stuck in neutral.

There's a great opportunity for drama here. If next season is to be the series final (unknown), I'd find it very satisfying if Paige acts like she's ok with having spy parents, but out of left field, WAMMO, off to jail they go.

Hi Twietee,

glad you liked it. Are you watching the Americans? etc.

I suspect someone or someones are going to die horribly and if Paige points the fingers, I hope she goes down too. While I understood using an entire season to explain the kids and spies in season 2, this season while excellent, seems to be missing something.

But that's me...

Nope. Have no clue, is it good? Wasn't following the thread just happened to see your username pop up and immediately intervened...

...but I do enjoy Homeland very much lately. Almost missed that one. Have you seen Daredevil? I read lots of good things about it.

now back to the Americans...it is about North Americans, right?

Netflix, $8/month, a great value.

Alas poor Martha, we knew her well: definitely la morte.

Netflix, it'll take a Marvel series with characters not yet mentioned to get me to sign up.

Spoilers



Elizabeth is a cold blooded killer, example: Grandma. Phillip is more sensitive , he has guilt about getting sexually involved with a 15 year old, for Mother Russia (which he did'nt) and I wonder if he is the one to tidy up the Maratha situation, if he has developed any kind of feelings, not love, but just enough empathy about what he has done to her. I imagine this will effect him. You'd have to be sociopaths for it not to, even if he tells himself, they are the enemy. More likely it will be que sera staring into his beer for 15 seconds in her rememberance. :-/ I'm still hoping in the end, it's Paige that sets them up.

One more thing, if Phillip is going to kill her in her apartment, why take off his disguise in front of her? Maybe he does not want to get blood on it?

Does anyone really think that Pastor Tim is just a Pastor? I think somehow he's a spy, just not sure for who.

THE FOLLOWING IS JUST MY WILD IDEA.


If my suspicions about Tim are correct, I think Paige gets wind of a plot against her parents by Tim. The final scene is of her in the crossfire and we wait till next season.

I think Philip had Hans kill Martha.

About Pastor Tim, that would be a huge surprise!

interesting theories about Tim. There's definitely a parallel between what Tim is doing with Paige and what the Center wants.

I think Philip is an expert at telling people what they want to hear. (e.g. as he does with Kimberly to deflect her advances). I suspect he will try to convince Martha that it all makes sense, but it probably won't work and someone else will take her out (e.g. Hans).

Sure would be an interesting twist with Pastor Tim.

Some Oh wow moments last night - Stan and his superior, the edict from the Centre and the last few seconds (I won't spoil but I knew that character would do what they did.)

I like that this finale was quiet as opposed to the previous seasons, but I hope the last few seconds will ultimately get rid of this character in season four. At least before the leads anyway.

I thought it was a pretty good finale overall. I was hoping to see a bit of the aftermath of the end of the penultimate episode, but at least we know there's more to come with that storyline.

The EST stuff felt a bit out of place, like it didn't really belong in the finale.

And the last few seconds, we saw it coming, but still..

Holy Freholy! Some nice turns but an underwhelming finale until the last 5 minutes! The Martha situation resolved supposedly and what I dreamed of happening, happens. Maybe we know what the next season will be about, unless her parents are able to nip this new threat in the bud. However, there is a strong possibility that next season will be the series finale.
