The Jennings are back and The Americans season 5 spoilers reveal that the couple’s children will be highly featured this season. What is in store for the family?
FX released several teasers for the upcoming season. One trailer showed Paige Jennings (Holly Taylor) starting training sessions with her mother, Elizabeth (Keri Russell). Elizabeth can be heard saying in the trailer, “You have to be willing to do anything to protect yourself.”
Because Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings’ kids grew up as Americans, they will slowly introduce them to the idea of loyalty to Russia. However, Paige has her reservations especially after she saw her mother kill a man who was trying to rob them.
In the season 4 finale, the Jennings’ KGB handler Gabriel (Frank Langella ) told the couple to leave the country and return to Russia after biochemical scientist William Crandall’s (Dylan Baker) arrest. The FBI caught William before he handed off a vial of virus to Philip. He broke the vial on his palm before being caught, infecting himself with the deadly strain.
Meanwhile, the Jennings’ neighbor FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) told Philip that he saw his son Matthew (Daniel Flaherty) and Paige kissing. Philip confronted Paige and ordered her not to see Matthew again.
What to Expect in The Americans Season 5
The Americans season 5 spoilers also indicate that the tension of the escalating Cold War will also take its toll in the marriage of Philip and Elizabeth.
The couple tries to contain the growing romance between Paige and Matthew. The two Soviet KGB officers know they have to do something since Stan remains the greatest threat to their safety. The FBI officer also happens to be Philip’s best friend, making things more complicated.
These events will lead to the narrative of the new season. The official synopsis of season 5 episode 1, titled Amber Waves, reads:
“As Philip and Elizabeth struggle to contain the risks from Paige’s growing relationship with Matthew Beeman, the Centre sends them on an operation unlike any they’ve ever had before, straining their family and marriage to its limits.”
Rhys further hinted at The Americans season 5 spoilers. The actor detailed that fresh complications from the FBI will arise this season. “They’re kicking us while we’re down. They’re not gonna stop,” he said.
In the trailer, Stan was also seen looking at a bulletin board full of evidence, TVLine noted. He was also scrutinizing some new faces in the Soviet embassy – Philip and Elizabeth in their disguises.
The Americans season 5 premieres on March 7 in FX.
