Just seen the finale and I am strangely a bit emotional about the series ending. Was able to binge a lot of it so the Jennings became a regular fixture on our TV and now they're gone it's a bit sad!

Genuinely one of the best shows I've seen and we went through a patch of debating whether or not to stop watching it... so glad we continued!

What a heartbreaking finale yet so perfectly written and filmed. Enough closure for the majority of characters but not leaving everything answered (annoying as that is!)

I can't get enough people onto this show it really deserves to be seen - it didn't really get a fair deal from it's UK broadcaster so thank heaven for Amazon Prime :)

It'll be a while before anything comes close to the quality of The Americans

Totally agree. The garage scene was amazing maybe the best of the series.
As of the ending it would be so unrealistic if they could somehow live happy as family in america glad it didnt go like this.
Also intresting was the scene with Renee near the end which hinted she is guilty.

Will be missed

After six seasons of meticulous setups and carefully crafted character developments, the series finale of The Americans ended, appropriately enough, on a quiet note.

The finale episode had minimal dialog; each word was carefully consumed and the rest was driven by imageries, powerful performances from four leads (Philip, Elizabeth, Stan, and Paige), and effective selection of music from Dire Straits, U2, Tchaikovsky, and the series composer Nathan Barr.

Three amazing scenes that stood out to me were...

The garage: The exchange between Stan, Philip, Elizabeth, and Paige was more suspenseful than all the heists, chases, and kills in the entire series, driven solely by performances.

The train: Totally unexpected and perhaps the most dramatic and heartbreaking scene in the entire series.

The car ride home: The border crossing, Elizabeth finally sleeping in peace lovingly leaning against Philip. They lived in a sea of lies. They spent years in a strange country pretending to fit in, in order to do what was best for their home country. Now they’re home, but like Philip says, "it feels strange". And then Elizabeth tells him, in their native language that they’d been forbidden to use, that they’ll get used to it, just like they did all those years ago in America. No shootouts. No chase scenes. No deaths. Just a man and a woman realizing they just lost everything they loved, but their marriage was as real as any. The only thing they can trust as 100% authentic. Absolutely tragically beautiful.

Those three scenes were expertly interconnected with fantastic ensemble and superb writing. Everyone had theories about how the show should end, and who would die, but in retrospect, it couldn't have ended any differently. A great finale for a show that will go down as a classic. A show that focused on the relationships of the characters until the end, when they could've easily turned the last episode into an action-packed shootout. The ability for the writers to make sure that there is no happy ending for anyone without any bloodshed was spectacular. The garage scene was one of the best scenes in modern television history, with perfection in the acting from everyone involved, but especially from Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich. Probably the greatest feat with The Americans was the show's ability to leave its viewers as paranoid as its characters, leaving us all questioning Reene's motives. A finale and series that was truly a work of art.


Goodbye Americans, you'll be sorely missed. :(

Would be nice if they eventually do a "twenty years later" movie. By 2008 Russia had gone through some interesting changes.

Strange how nobody commented on the last season.
Finally able to watch the finale. I must say I am impressed.
Very solid story. (Except the Paige part bit of gap there at the ending all alone idk how that would turn out)
Amazing screenplay throughout the years. Glad it finished properly.
Will we be greatly missed as it was on of the most unique series I have watched so far.

That quote is from "Marathon Man" not "The Boys FROM Brazil"! Anyway, love the show.

Apparently it got picked up for a fourth season. I am rejoicing, one of the few cliche free shows I'm watching at the moment and really waiting for each episode.
