Cannot wait for this to start airing again. With The Americans and Hannibal returning very close to one another it's going to be a great few months for drama.

Also wigs.

Welp, they certainly did a good job of reinforcing this season being about family rather than husband and wife.

I assume they paid to use some catchy period tune.

They did and it was great. Here's a link to where I could watch the trailer (UK goon): http://time.com/3626347/americans-season-3-teaser/

I think the exact reason for the submarine sinking are a little unclear. It was claimed the design was not suitable for Russian production quality and S Directorate was the scapegoat for falling for an American trick.

Basically this. According to Oleg, the sinking of the sub could have been prevented if the propellers had went through proper testing (three weeks instead of six months I think he puts it?) AND fitted onto the right class of sub AND if the sub captain didn't push them past their allowed limits. If proper procedure was followed then no one would have lost their lives, instead things got rushed and people died. Directorate S get the blame since they're an easy scapegoat.

It's incredibly hosed up.
