*SPOILER ALERT* (If you haven’t seen the entirety of ‘The Americans’ first season then I highly suggest that you stop reading.)
It seems like forever since I had my last fix of my favorite show ‘The Americans’. We all know that they have been renewed for season 2 (yes!) and they will air the episodes on January of 2014. All I can do now is just watch the re-runs, catch every witty line, revel in the dramatic scenes, and bask in the glory of the ever-so exhilarating fight scenes.
We all have our expectations and predictions for the 2nd season. Based from the current information that we’ve gathered, here are some of the things that we think might happen for the next installment of ‘The Americans’.
Susan Misner (Sandra Beeman) has been made a regular so we can expect her to either stay beside his secretive husband Stan or see her have enough and send Stan pack up and leave. We think that this promotion will give us more scenes where the love triangle of Nina, Stan, and Sandra are put on the spotlight. Sound likes a soap opera? Let’s just wait on how ‘The Americans’ will make this one unique and so much more exciting.
Annet Mahendru has also been promoted to a season regular which means that we will be seeing more of her character Nina. She’s not the scared, stereo selling secretary that we used to know. Due to Stan’s killing of Vlad, Nina transforms into this triple-agent who has been shown to have a renewed loyalty to her motherland, Russia. Is this transformation enough? Or would Stan Beeman be able to influence her once again? I really can’t wait to see how Nina will interact with Stan now that she has this strengthened resolve to serve her country.
The last actor to be promoted is Alison Wright. Her character, Martha brings some light-heartedness to the show because of all the tricky situations, hers is the least dangerous. It’s also fun to see that of all the players in the show, Martha seems to the one who is having the most fun since in her world, she is happily married to Clark. I agree with the people behind The Americans who included Alison as a series regular. I guess we’ll see more lovey-dovey situations between Martha and Clark, or will the secretary/loving wife start to have suspicions of her own?
Thinking about the possibilities of what these characters can do just made it harder for me to wait until January. Oh well, waiting will just make it so much better. See you on the next post!
