Jezebel’s resident The Americans fans Joanna Rothkopf and Stassa Edwards discuss “Persona Non Grata,” Season 4's slow-burn, devastating finale.
The best show on television, FX’s The Americans, will get two more seasons before the Philip and Elizabeth Jennings are forced to pack up their sizable collection of unfortunate wigs and eyeglasses.
Like most married couples, Elizabeth and Philip Jennings have their share of ups and downs, passion and apathy, parenting mishaps and frequent misunderstandings and breakups.

It's not a particularly titillating scene, but one that gives insight into the characters and what they're preoccupied with in The Americans' second season premiere.
