49. The Americans 3x7, ”Walter Taffet”

WOW. There’s a lot to unpack in The Americans Season 3 Episode 7, “Walter Taffet,” but your hosts are up for the challenge. After she gets over her shock, John helps Danielle contemplate the implications of the bug, its discovery, and everything it puts into circulation. They chat Martha, marveling over the acting choices and story beats, from the bathroom scene to the sweep to the exchange with Clark. In the Cave, they pick up on the significance of the bug itself, with John offering a gloss of Bruno Latour’s work on actants to think differently about the objects in the show. They also tackle Stan’s racism, which is prominently on display in his frustration about Aderholt. Don’t worry, it’s not all heavy. Danielle calls out her fav music cue to date - Fleetwood Mac! - and has big feelings about leaving pizza crust on the plate. John caps it all off with a TheoryShip for Henry.
