FX has released a series of teasers for new season of The Americans including this one which somehow got missed over the holiday season and while some are purposely ambiguous focusing on the US/USSR covert war, this one shows the danger could be coming from inside the Jennings’ house.
No it’s not suddenly turned into a slasher movie, instead it looks like Paige will continue to be suspicious of her parents late night activities and to be honest we’re surprised this didn’t happen sooner. Season 1 primarily dealt with the notion of trust between Elizabeth and Philip, hitting a variety of stumbling blocks. Now they have their daughter to contend with and as you can see in the promo they question if this is the first time Paige has snooped on them.
What about Henry? As the youngest he seems pretty oblivious at the moment, he did demonstrate some nifty defense skills with the guy they hitched with, but at the moment it’s only Paige who is wondering what their parents are up to. So far these kids haven’t been an annoyance; let’s hope this continues with the new season. Henry’s multicolored jacket is one of my favorite pieces of costuming from last year on this show.
Also featured in this teaser; wigs, sex, patterned shirts and turtlenecks.
The Americans returns Wednesday, February 26.
