All About Martha: The Americans Recap

03/26/2015 03:38 pm ET | Updated May 26, 2015

NOTE: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 9 of FX's The Americans, titled "Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?"

People are not being polite and things are getting really real as we head into the season finale build-up.

Elizabeth spills all of her beans to an old lady she has to kill. Hans murders Todd. Philip grimaces at Gabriel because he's mad at how he's helping Elizabeth turn Paige. Stan and Oleg are oh-so-close to jail-breaking Nina.

And Martha. Martha knows all about Clark, now. The first scene last night was the heaviest one I've ever watched. Is she going to snap? What about that mail robot?

Here's what you all thought:

"@UD_j1mb0: Martha wants to "turn the page" and Elizabeth wants to "turn the Paige" #TheAmericans" this is awesome!

Philip is realizing that he, like most of us, has severely underestimated the steel that Martha is made of. #TheAmericans

Philip trusts Martha more than Elizabeth in some ways. At least in terms of acting w/out consultation. #TheAmericans

Martha'll protect "Clarke," Phillip's on his own #TheAmericans

Let's not forget... Martha has a gun. #TheAmericans

And then, this might be the best pitch for a television show, ever:

I really want a spinoff of #TheAmericans that's a wacky workplace comedy about the rest of the staff of the travel agency.
