The Americans Season 5 Episodes

The Jennings teenage daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) spends Season 5 of "The Americans" trying to find out more about the family business now that she knows her parents aren't mild-mannered travel agents, but Russian spies. As she helps protect them (or is she?) by collecting intel on Pastor Tim (Kelly AuCoin) and his wife Alice (Suzy Jane Hunt), she grows closer to her mom Elizabeth (Keri Russell), who is teaching her self-defense. Meanwhile, Elizabeth and Philip (Matthew Rhys) investigate an American plot to create famine in the Soviet Union, and Elizabeth comes to terms with a difficult decision after a mission goes awry. Elsewhere, Oleg (Costa Ronin) struggles with his loyalty to the KGB; and as the FBI continue to seek out the Soviet agents, Stan (Noah Emmerich) struggles with the loss of Nina (Annet Mahendru) and the consequences of his choices.
