Jeebus, whom does Nina not bang? Too bad I was only a teen in the 80-ies.

So Elizabeth is going to kill some Muslim. The KGB aint all bad. She has to take some kind of pill first that will "last an hour" and is "98 percent effective". She puts the Muslim in a leg lock at the swimming pool and stabs him with a syringe. WTF? what is the pill for?

Some guy breaks into a family's house and sneaks into the basement. he shoots another guy who's just sitting down here. the guy pushes some button before he dies and sparks fly out of a junction box. The assassin goes to the box and hooks up a phone. He calls some girl up. What in the Hillbilly fuck is that all about???Who are these people?

Boris and Natasha sneak into sekrit Contra training camp run by the evil Reagan. They kill a couple of American truck drivers. Why? Centre says their mission was a success. huh? This thing is like trying to figure out one of Chittle's topic starters.

a.) The pill was an antidote to the poison gas she made the Pakistani inhale. A bit over the top, I admit.

b.) The shooter is a SEAL who wants out of working for the KGB by killing all his handlers. The basement is a KGB switchboard and the guy shot is the person manning and running it. Shooter traces some last call and ends up at the FBI secretary Phil romeod (in the guise of an FBI IA oversight agent).

c.) The hit at the camp is directed at Nicaraguan Contra leaders trained there. Successful, because Liz shoots one in the head in the barracks. The grunts, the truck driver and the young guy are just collateral because they stumble upon Phil taking pictures. Phil is broken up about it, may be the motivation for a defection storyline to come.

What poison gas? She stuck a needle in him. I thought the objective was to kill all the Contra leaders. how would the SEAL know where he KGB keeps it's sekrit switchboard? you have to be Psychic to keep up with this one. I'm still tying to figure out who drove away the car with the Jew in the trunk.

To me it looked like she forced him under water and when she let him up and he had to gasp for air she sprayed the gas in his face.

Dunno, maybe the mission partially failed and they were just happy they killed at least one.

23:30 mins into the episode he impersonates a LEO, provides a fake warrant and gets the data (I suppose from calls he received) from the phone company. They can only give him the area, not the specific number. That's why he later on first goes through the house of that family. Looked pretty straightforward to me, maybe your bathroom break took too long.

Female Mossad agent who recovered from the beating she received from Phil in time. Later they exchange the Jewish scientist for the agent Liz and Phil captured.

What pissed me off is that I was supposed to know who Anneliese is without a lead in. I had no idea and had to look it up. The character was last seen in S01E02, which aired 15 months ago, and has never really been mentioned since. WTF?

You need to come sit with me and remind me when to take my pills. Now that I'm 60, my memory aint what it used to be.

It was poison gas. Very visible on the big screen.

I suspect Philip is planning to defect.

I wonder if the actors really speak Russian?

Edit Just checked IMDB and they are real Russian actors.

Not the lady playing Nina, she's Indian e.g. Phil is played by a Brit, Liz by an American, of course. Claudia is played by an American actress as well.

But I suppose, yes, most of the Rezidentura staff, apart from Nina, are played by actual Russians support actors.

Her mother was Russian and she lived in Russia for a time. She knows 6 languages and Russian is one of them.
