    Argh. I missed last week's episode and they still don't have it available OnDemand or online. WTF, FX? Do they just not want people to watch the show? They're not making episodes available until after the next episode airs. Smart, right?

    I've been a little under the weather, so I just could not stay away last night. I did record it though. I look forward to watching it this weekend. FX ON Demand sucks, IMO. I'm not sure what they are accomplishing by holding the episodes back so long.

    I saw the lastest episode. Well, I just knew that Elizabeth was going to have to kill that neighborhood security guy once he explained everything he was going to have to do. She couldn't allow them to do that. Still, it was a little shocking to see her just shoot him in the head like that. She is a spy and is trained to do whatever is necessary to advance her country's goals.

    I'm glad that Phillip was able to convince her to hang tight, until they confirmed that we weren't going to blame the Russians. Smart move. I hope she learned something from that experience.

    Now that Stan's wife has indicated she's unhappy, will that open him up for an affair? If Elizabeth and Phil discover this info, it would be the perfect opportunity for some woman to step in and provide Stan some lovin'. Elizabeth? This could put her in a perfect position to get more classified info from him.

    I agree! I bet it's a lot more difficult to actually write the scripts than it looks though. lol Don't you think it would be fun to sit in a room with other creative people and generate storylines for a tv show? I think I would love it.

    It appears that Stan is hot for the woman who works in the Embassy.

    I wonder if they are going to include in their storylines anything about the real life Russian Spy who lived in VA during this time. His name is Robert Hanseen. There's a movie about him called Breach. He was finally arrested by the FBI after many years of giving the Russians top secret information. He's in prison now.

    Robert Hanssen was not Russian. He was born/raised in the Norwood Park area of Chicago, IL.

    It actually might be interesting to add in more stories about American born traitors. They have already had a few.
