Blonde guy from the pilot who died had a secret wife and baby and was living in Philly unnoticed (which was a no no). He said to her if he didn't show up in 2 weeks (?) to place an ad with a specific thing (code) and his friend would help her and the baby. That's where Phillip comes in. Fat lady at the diner spying on Philip and his kid is the new head honcho that they need to listen and obey. She replaced one of the head guys.

Elizabeth recruited cute black guy Gregory a long time ago, and they've been having an affair throughout. She didnt really care for Philip and Gregory wanted her to leave him because he loves her yadda yadda yadda. Elizabeth realizes Philip is good guy and tells the guy its over. He's not happy.

The FBI has the other lady on lockdown is she's giving information to the neighbor. While that's happening the FBI finds out about the wife and is trying to get to her before the spys do because they know they're gonna kill her.


Philip then goes to meet with some guy who has classified paperwork on a missile the USA has to use against Russia, that was the meeting that Robert was supposed to go to before he died.

Elizabeth and Phillip want to get wife and baby out of the country so they trust fat boss lady and she lies and says she's taking them to Cuba where they will be protected and start a new life.

Bitch lies and kills the wife (we see her in car with a needle in her arm), the baby is then sent to Robert's parents in Russia and you see the kgb official saying he died a hero and wanted his son to be raised in Russia with his parents (lies).


annnnd I think thats it.

ah ok. thank you.

I was so mad that the lady lied and killed the wife! I was really mad at myself for believing that she was going to help the lady and the baby. Now I learned to never believe the KGB people, haha.

But I think I missed something at the beginning - who is that lady who's giving information to the FBI? I saw when she agreed to do it, but I don't know who she is or where she came from!

I had to choose before starting another show, and it was between this and The Face. The Face won and I regret nothing.

I feel bad for Robert's wife. I was really starting to think she was going to live, and then bam they kill her and take her baby.

I thought Phillip would help her escape. But as soon as he talked to that lady and trusted her with the info, I knew she was done for.
hearthecity 14th-Feb-2013 02:38 pm (UTC)
I thought they'd shoot her in the car and Phillip and Elizabeth would know she was dead.

yeeeeeep.
she was screwed from the start but especially when she figured out that they were spies~
nicolesnitchie 14th-Feb-2013 09:01 am (UTC)
i'm watching episode 2 rn!! love this show so far.
sojourn_storm 14th-Feb-2013 09:01 am (UTC)
Interested in Gregory and Elizabeth. She'd been with him a long time and I think she loved him, but she's got so many compartments in her head keeping everything separate.

Her relationship with her husband is interesting too.

Knew that woman was going to die. Least they didn't kill the baby.
joaniemaloney 15th-Feb-2013 01:36 am (UTC)
yep, I'd love for Gregory to return, flesh out that relationship.
michelleantonia 14th-Feb-2013 10:06 am (UTC)
This show is definitely continuing to be solid and deliver on the stuff that was interesting in the pilot. I like them both, and the suspense is done really well, although I found the previous two eps to be more intense, as far as suspense goes. But they continue to ply the relationship between the leads, and not leave it alone. That's great.
ibelieveinsa 14th-Feb-2013 10:21 am (UTC)
The whole time they were leading that lady and her baby to the van I was like, GURL THEY AINT TAKING YOU TO CUBA! Made me sad. But that's how terrible they are. I seriously hope that the neighbor guy helps Phillip and Elizabeth in the end. I know Phil wants to leave this shit. It's up to you Felicity! Hopefully they find out that the wife is dead and question the motives.


The FBI was so close to saving the wife :(
megedeborch 14th-Feb-2013 10:23 am (UTC)
Oh man, knew they would kill the wife. Sucks.

Really liking the dynamic between the leads - although I wouldn't mind for Gregory to come back, because he's fine as fuck.

Episode was a bit more slow than the previous 2, but I'm really digging the series.

I liked Elizabeth's boyfriend. I hope he comes back to sort of get in between them and cause tension.
mynamehere07 14th-Feb-2013 11:10 am (UTC)
I saw that earlier. So sad. One of the reports I read said that he thought she was an intruder :(

beemo 14th-Feb-2013 12:43 pm (UTC)

I know! It's all over the news. I made a post. just waiting for a mod to wake up
soldoutmatinee 14th-Feb-2013 10:56 am (UTC)
it was an ok episode with the best character moments saved for the last few minutes. they are my power couple and we need more of their personal life and less spy stuff
soldoutmatinee 14th-Feb-2013 11:55 am (UTC)
winniechili 14th-Feb-2013 03:07 pm (UTC)
lol I think there needs to more spy stuff. And I wish they would show more of them acting like/being a married couple. It's mostly them talking about how fake their life is.
klutzy_girl 14th-Feb-2013 12:24 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad I chose to stick with this show! It keeps getting better.

Was not expecting Elizabeth to be cheating on Phillip, tbh.
bellarouze 14th-Feb-2013 12:39 pm (UTC)
this is the first political drama i just can not get into
aujourlejour 14th-Feb-2013 12:42 pm (UTC)
is it worth trying to get into this show? i watched the pilot and thought it was okay, but i'm worried they're gong to blow their wad too fast. like there was no subtlety- they went from "let's turn ourselves in" to "oh okay maybe not" in two minutes.

bellichka 14th-Feb-2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
I stuck with it & I'm enjoying it. Philip has kind of laid off of the "let's turn ourselves in" bit, but you can tell that the stress of keeping up appearances is getting to both of them. There were a couple new characters introduced in the last episode that should prove interesting in the coming weeks. And I love watching Matthew Rhys beat the shit out of people and occasionally take his shirt off, so it has that going for it as well.
michelleantonia 15th-Feb-2013 11:23 am (UTC)
The complexity of it is that they go back and forth, they're both really conflicted about it, and about one another. When you think they're gonna do something, a situation comes along that makes them rethink it, etc. And there's a lot of tension involved because of that.
