The hunt for a Soviet spy turns deadly.
Screw you, Jim Meeks and your spy girlfriend! How could Meeks, in good conscience, let Jeannie (who is one of the nicest characters on the show and is married to his best friend) be killed by the other spy? Damn, man. I hate that this happened, but at the same time, I can’t wait to see the fallout from Jeannie’s death. Fritz will be devastated, for sure. Will we even find a body or will spy girlfriend hide the body and no one will know what happened to Jeannie?
I don’t feel sorry for Jim at all. He brought this upon himself for getting himself signed up to be a spy. If he didn’t have the stomach for this kind of espionage, he should have thought twice about it. Spy girlfriend needs to die. I can’t believe she was willing to poison a 10-year old kid all in the name of Stalin and Communism. In the end, it was her father that the kid saw burying that container in the desert.
So Frank and Liza really aren’t in speaking terms anymore? That’s too bad. I did like their scene together and have missed seeing them together. Of course Frank would help Liza collect her specimens. I loved that and I loved how Liza quickly figured out that it was Frank who collected those plants.
Darrow asking Theodore to help him suss out who the spy is was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. And Theodore got himself a cushy promotion with it. He’s as ambitious as Helen and Helen should be worried now that she’s off the G Group.
Not really feeling Abby’s storyline this season at all. Enough with the religious plot already and her blaming herself for Jean Tatlock’s death and believing that that’s why she lost the baby. Give her something more meaningful to do, please. Rachel Brosnahan is better than this.
