This is episode 8 of The Americans “Divestment”. The story pushes the limits of cruelty when Ncgobo gives Venter a vicious death of fire. Todd escapes for the moment when he is granted an unusual half-measure. Nina continues to work her way out of trouble by agreeing to seduce Baklanov, while Martha sinks deeper into the wiles of Clark. Side plots involve Taffet’s subtle racism with Aderholt, Paige investigating Gregory’s history and a thumping of the mail robot.
