Great premiere, but I'm slightly disappointed by the lack of a sequence set to a cool 80's tune. :colbert:

Third episode of the season is supposed to have a baller totally rad montage.

Pretty sure it's just an old school mail robot. The newer delivery robots are way cooler now. You can usually see a few rolling around hospitals.

Catching the rebroadcast, unfortunately caught the last 6 minutes of the episode so that was uh.. weird.

The guy did mention possibly having to take out a surveillance detail. Guess he got taken out first. A bit sad really, I was hoping Phillip would have a bro undercover spy to hang out with.
It was pretty shocking to walk in the room and see them too, I feel bad for that son :bummed:


I wasn't expecting Mad Max to be mentioned, overall a very good episode, I could tell the budget went up this season when they had a helicopter tracking shot at the start of the episode.

Phillip tried to talk to her about sex but she already knew. It was when that creepy skinhead was hitting on her at the mall and Phillip later went to his house and stabbed him in the genitals with a bbq skewer.

Probably didn't know that position though, either way, she's going to be put off eating breakfast with the family for a little while.

Wow that was kinda sad the other spy family/couple got off'd like that :smith: I was starting to like them, and I was hoping they'd pop in and out throughout the season to help them on ops and stuff. But I guess since they said they wanted to see their kids and it really was mostly "in passing" I guess it was going to turn out that way.

She's no Kiernan Shipka but she (or neither the kid that play Henry) are as annoying as 90% of other child actors.

Note to self; never ever bank on being able to watch the later airing of this show. Had to juggle around my DVR priorities a bit, and it turns out that the broadcast had fifteen minutes of the finale rerun eating into the beginning and stopped recording long before the episode itself actually finished...

Same thing. I just had to :filez: it to catch the missing part instead of waiting for OnDemand where I'd have to watch everything from the beginning with no way to fast forward. FX jams too many commercials into their airing blocks and it really fucks over anyone planning on watching later airings. The only workaround is to schedule the later airing in addition to whatever else comes on afterwards.

They're both believable for their ages. Paige isn't *quite* Dana Brody yet, but hopefully her parents figuring out she checks up on them means that plot veers away from that level of silliness before it even gets there.

As long as her plotline doesn't turn into Dana Brody levels of bad and time given it'll be ok.

I Missed this! Hit the ground running. Didn't realise it was coming back need to re watch season 1 I couldn't recall anything! Oh yea she got shot!

Nice highlights
Deer in the headlights
Revenge of the wig
Mum & Dad 69
Watching the same movie twice
Kid finding the rest of his family like that
Mad Max
Bacon eating

Also so is that mail delivery robot actually a thing? It just felt hilarious lame and fitted into the episode perfectly while making me do a double take!

That episode ruled, and I'm so happy to have the show back. I didn't have nearly as many problems with the first season as others did, and for me the show continues to be its same usual awesomeness.

Great ep, but confused about something that i'm probably over analyzing.

I thought when we last left the series Beeman and the FBI had figured out that they were probably after a man and woman couple. But when we pick back up with Stan and the FBI we see the sketches of Phillip and Elizabeth - and one of someone else who looks a lot like Henry.

Did they somehow realize that the couple might have kids, and am I just misremembering last year's finale?

That was probably the KGB agent that got shanked in the "Tusk" sequence.

Good lord what a start to the season.

I assume when Philip said "do you want the other half of the list?" he was basically saying that the other KGB couple may have been killed by Mags Bennett (pursuant to the earlier "She's still in the country? Oh poo poo" moment), perhaps even specifically as a warning to them?

Also, that was a lot of nudity for basic cable.

I think I remember from the somewhat revealing teasers that part of the plot this season may be that the KGB decides their naturalized spies are more trouble than they're worth (especially since the main patron of the program, Zhukov, is dead) and start eliminating them themselves because of the FBI's renewed interest in Directorate S. Easier to crash the program and start fresh with newer personnel than continue to support potentially compromised agents (or ones who are 'too comfortable' in their cover). Claudia might be behind that recommendation, which would give Elizabeth the impetus to kill her and end her story arc.

And yeah, that was almost soft-core levels. I can only imagine the casting ad for the hooker riding cowgirl - "actress must be attractive but have small enough breasts to be completely obscured by moderate-sized hands - light touching and moderate levels of nudity also involved."

Ugh. Now it makes sense. I didn't pay attention to the other "Air Force Security" agent at first since he was in the background. It was Keri and the other guy's wife playing the hookers. I just assumed the hookers were extras or assets that'd been paid off. Guess that teaches me not to have one eye on my tablet and the other on the television.

I stand corrected.
