'The Americans' Season finale preview: 5 reasons you absolutely must watch 'The Colonel'

In its first season, "The Americans" has been a surprisingly tense and entertaining work of drama. KGB spies Elizabeth and Philip Jennings (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) have made a compelling couple to watch as they negotiate marriage, secrecy and the Cold War.But whatever "The Americans" has achieved throughout Season 1, it all pales in comparison to the incredible season finale, "The Colonel."The basic plot for the finale tells you nothing of the edge-of-your-seat thrills and heartbreaking stories of the episode.

Instead,... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/the-americans-season-finale-preview-5-reasons-you-absolutely-must-watch-the-colonel.html
