The Americans (2013–2018): Season 4, Episode 11 - Dinner for Seven - full transcript

Elizabeth completes the last steps of a very personal operation... but at what cost?

Previously on
"the Americans"...

Are you ready to move
to get the codes?

Yes. I am.

You know it's possible
for people like us

who give everything
to our country and the world

to forget ourselves.

I'm gonna miss her.

we take the last step,

I'll ask them to look for
another way in.

Do you want me to ask?


None of my business

but I can't stop thinking
about you and burov.

It might be that
you're holding off with burov

because your conscience
is bothering you,

because of what happened
to Nina.

What happened
to your old boss?

He's going on a long trip
to Thailand.

Frank Gaad.
We have a proposal for you.

I'd like to sit down with you
and Elizabeth and Paige

when I get back
from Ethiopia.

Tim is missing.

I made a tape.

It says exactly who you are.

If you have anything
to do with this...

Paige, they're okay.

I've never been
scared like that before.

Please tell your parents
I'm sorry.



Uh, am i
interrupting anything?

No, no.
Come on in, please.

It's so good
to have you home safe.

-Oh, thanks.
-Can I get you something?

No, uh, I'm fine.

Pastor Tim.
Welcome back.

Uh, you want coffee?

Uh, no, thank you.

Paige isn't here right now.

i came to see you.

Is Henry...

Uh, h-Henry's upstairs
in his room.

I don't feel right
about what happened.

That you felt threatened
for your safety

because of something
that happened to me.

It's okay.

Alice was so afraid,

Her reaction
was understandable.

You're being generous.

When I got lost
through my own stupidity...

...i was terrified that
no one would ever find me.

That I'd never
see Alice again,

see my baby born,
grow up.

I thought about
you two and Paige.

All the things that
being a parent can mean.


Sorry for what happened.

Well, that's it.

That's what I came to say.

Pastor Tim...

W-would you and Alice
like to come to dinner

sometime later this week
or whenever is good for you?

P-Paige would love that,
and so would we.

That -- that sounds great.

I'll check with Alice,
if that's all right.




In here.

I made pierogi.

Missing the 'old country'?

My mother used to make them
for breakfast just like this.

When we had eggs.

No, thanks.

The centre turned down
your request.

The mission with don
and young-hee has to go forward.

Okay, come on.
Come on, everybody.

All right, don,
we're leaving.


Where's young-hee?

She's -- she took the kids
to school.

Is anyone else here?



Something --
something wrong?

I'm pregnant.

Well, say something.

h-how did this happen?

It happened
because we had sex.

I don't know
what I'm gonna do.

What am I gonna do?

You cannot have this baby.

What do you mean?
I mean, what are you saying?

That would
destroy everything.

For you.

And young-hee.

So, you want me
to get rid of it?

It's the only way.

I-i will pay
for everything.

I don't want your money.

I don't want anything
from you.

Don't worry, I won't upset
your perfect little life, okay?

I'll take care of it myself.



So, uh,
what's going on?

You remember my old boss,
Frank Gaad?

You met him a couple years ago.
We had a barbecue.

He and his wife went on a trip
to Asia -- Thailand.

He was killed there.

He wa-- he was killed?

What -- what happened?

They say it was a robbery
in his hotel room.

But I don't buy it.

I think
the Soviets did it.


I don't know why exactly.

He was out of the game.

He couldn't do anything to them
anymore, but they...

They're animals.

You have no idea.

I could tell you stories.

I mean --
well, I can't tell you.

They're classified,
but trust me,

they do things
you cannot imagine.

Oh, hey.
What's up?


Just, uh,
chatting up my friend.

You know,
I'm gonna head upstairs.

It's been a long day.

No, no.

I'm headed out, so...

It's good to see you.


Thanks for the drink.
-Yeah, of course.

See ya.

Good night.


How'd it go?
You all right?

I don't know.

It's all yours now.


Did Stan drop off
any movies?


Ugh. Damn.
What's for dinner?

Grilled cheese sandwiches.


Hey, be back down
in 15 minutes, please.

Hands washed.

How did, uh --
how did youth group go?

We made a schedule
for the downtown food pantry.

I'm gonna be working there
a couple nights a week.


Wheat or white?

-Wheat for me.

Stan's old boss, Frank Gaad,
was killed in Thailand.


He was murdered
in his hotel room.

Stan told me Gaad was
going to Thailand with his wife.

When did he tell you that?

A while ago.
We were playing racquetball.

I put that in my report.



I'm just here picking up Paige
from choir practice.

I'm early,
or they're running late.

Well, uh, come in.
Come in.

We're so excited to have you
over for dinner, you and Alice.

We're looking forward
to it.

We got some strawberry ice cream
for dessert.

Paige had mentioned that
that was Alice's favorite?

It is.


Is everything okay?


It's all right.

I think, you know...

I think maybe Philip and I

have just been under
a lot of pressure.

It's difficult.

Well, it's just --
it's very hard.


You know, you are safe here,

You can talk to me.

I think
when Alice thought that

we may have something to do with
your disappearance --

which is not her fault.

She was afraid,
and I understand that.

I just really felt like
i was...

Coming apart.

I understand.

Do you?

I think so.

Should I come back?

I didn't mean to
take up your time.


You don't look so good.

I'm tired.

Not sleeping a lot.

I keep thinking...

You know what
i keep thinking about?


I'm flattered.

You're a smart guy,

I don't think
you'd be too surprised to hear

there's been a lot of interest
in you in our meetings.

There's been talk about
blackmailing you.

Talk about using Nina...

Or your brother.

They want me to.

You know, when I started
in counterintelligence,

they gave me a new partner --
Chris amador.

You'd like the guy.


Kind of direct, you know?


I didn't even realize how close
i was getting to the guy

until you guys killed him.

Anyone tell you
about that?

I didn't know what to do.

I think I kind of
lost my mind.

I did something...


Just as bad.

I haven't felt the same

What do you want me
to say?


What can you say?

Amador, Nina.

My old boss got killed.

I think you guys
might've done it.

Somewhere in there,
my wife left me.

I don't want you
on my conscience, too.

This is the last time
we're gonna see each other.

That's what
i wanted to say.

Red or white?


Red for me, too.

Do you always
cook dinner?

I try to.

I mean, everyone's busy.

Things don't always
go according to plan.

I hope you like lamb.

Oh, I devour anything
put in front of me these days.

I'm sure.


I didn't ask for this --
any of this.

I'm not vindictive.
I don't threaten people.

That isn't me.
It's not who I am.

If I were
in your situation,

I probably would've
done the same.

Henry, can you
get that, please?




-Something smells good.
-Yeah, mom made lamb roast.

-Who is it?

Oh, you got company?

-Uh, yeah.
-Hey. What's up?

Hey, I'm just dropping off
"silver streak."

It's a good one.

Hey, why don't you
stay for dinner?

We've got plenty,
and you can meet pastor Tim.

Stan's staying for dinner.


He's starving.

I'll pull up a chair
next to me.

Hey, look,
if it's a problem --

no, no, no.

There's plenty
to go around.

-You sure?
-Come on in.

You got a pastor
in the house, huh?


Uh, hi, Stan.

Hi. I didn't know
you had company.

-Hi. I'm Tim.
-Stan beeman.

-Pleased to meet you.



Tim is Paige's pastor.
Our pastor.

He baptized me.


Alice is my wife.

Oh, well, I see
Elizabeth's not the only one

with a roast
in the oven.

I live across the street.

I-i tend to show up
around meal time.

Although I've never
crashed a party before.

The more the merrier.

Yeah, look, come on.
Pull up a chair.

Stuff your face.
You sure?

There's plenty to go around.


Yeah, we moved here
about three years ago.

It's a great little

From where?

-St. Louis.

Is your family out of town?

Oh, no,
my son's with my wife.

And she's with her boyfriend.

We're getting divorced.

That must be hard.

It's getting better.

Well, not better.


Uh, so,
what do you do, Stan?

Oh, he's an FBI agent.




And you're a pastor
at the church Paige goes to?

I am.

I know
it's been great for her.

We believe in
social action

and making the world
a better place.

All for that.

Yeah, pastor Tim chained himself
to a fence once.

It -- it was
a ban the bomb rally.


We believe in
social justice

with a healthy dollop of Jesus
in the mix.

Can I help you?

Yeah, we're here to see
don seong.

Is he expecting you?

but he'll want to see us.

Can I see
some identification?

Of course.

Yes. I have a John, Leonard,
and Theresa rawlings

here to see you.

Have a seat.
He'll be right out.

-Thank you.
-You're welcome.

How can I help you?

We're Patty's family.

We need to talk to you.

They're with me.

Okay. Here you go.

Follow me.

I'm, uh,
I'm Patty's brother.

This is her father
and stepmother.

Why did you come here?

Patty's dead.


That cannot be true.
I-i don't understand.

She killed herself.


She was --

you knew
that she was pregnant.


You told her
to get an abortion.

Yes, but i-i had
never thought

that she would hurt herself.

You killed her.

You killed my beautiful girl,
you bastard.

I-i swear
i did not know about that.

I'm -- I'm sorry.

You're -- you're sorry?

What? What --
what does that even me--

my sister is dead!

I -- p-please,
do -- do not talk that loud.

N-not in here.

You're a coward.

We want to take her home.

We expect you to pay.

For getting Patty to California
and the funeral expenses.

Yes. Uh, I...

Will do that, of course.

We --
we want the money now.

I-i do not have so much with me.

We -- we can go to the bank,
and I will get that money out.


Because you disgust me,

and I never want to see
your face again.

He's weak, John.

All right, okay.
Um, you -- you two stay here.

I'm -- I'm sorry,
but I cannot let them do that.

Look at him.


-Oh, hey.

Uh, thanks for dinner
the other night.

It was really nice.

It was nice to have you.

Um, interesting
to meet your neighbor.

Stan. Yes.

Yeah, I was surprised
to hear about his profession.


Well, can't choose
your neighbors.

Can't you?

We lived there first
for a long time.

And you know...

We didn't choose each other
either, did we?

Honestly, I...
Can only thank you

for everything you've done
for Paige.

When she first started
coming here to church,

I felt threatened.

I was...

I was afraid
i was gonna lose her.

To god?

And to you.

But it didn't happen.

In fact,
we've gotten closer,

and things have been better.

And there's nothing
that I did or Philip.

It was you.


You took a risk.

You opened yourself up
to her.

That took faith.

In Paige.


Yeah, I...Feel...



That you're out on a limb
and you've handed me a saw.

None of us
are in control.

Not really.

Not ever.

we're in god's hands?

I know
you don't see it that way,

but there is
something greater than this.


How do you know?

I don't know.

I believe.

That doesn't always work,

but most of the time...
It makes things better.

You okay, dad?

Let's get him home.


I know nobody can forgive
what I did.

I'm ashamed and...

Very sorry.

Hey, Stan.

One of the reports I put in
for follow up

on the Martha investigation
came back with a curious detail.

is a curious word.

"When the door became stuck

while attempting to
remove some files,

agent Gaad
pulled repeatedly."

More like Gaad went batshit
on the mail robot.

Martha covered for him.

While it was being repaired,

there was a 911 call
from the repair facility.

there was a death there.


The owner's mother.

Now, the report says
natural causes.

He went for it.

How is he?

Scared, upset.

We, uh -- we didn't find the
level four codes in his office.


They copied
all of his computer discs,

so hopefully they're there.

You think
he'll tell young-hee?

I don't think so.

But it's hard
to really know.


This is Mrs. hathaway.

Oh, hi.

I have a message for you.

Patty, it's me.

I need to talk to you.

Where did you go?

Why you don't call me?

Something is not right
about don.

He's acting so...

I need to talk to you.

Please call b--



I thought we were
driving Paige home in the Van.

it's not far from work for me,

and I was on my way home,


Well, maybe you can come by
a bit earlier

and help out a bit
next time.


I'll let her know
you're here.


Pastor Tim.

Um...You know, if...

If you have something
on your mind and...

You know, you can't stop
thinking about it --

you want to,
but you -- you can't.


I pray.

For guidance.

What if you...

What if you don't...
Believe in god?

Or religion or prayer?

None of those things

It doesn't matter?

All that matters is
how we treat each other.

Is this forever?

With pastor Tim
and Alice?

I don't know yet.

You know, Alice accused us
of something that we didn't do,

so that works
to our advantage.


Well, she feels bad.

Pastor Tim
feels the same.

You understand?

You pretend
to forgive them.

Your father and i
love you

and will do anything
to keep this family together.

And maybe
a difficult situation

will get easier
for all of us,

pastor Tim and Alice.

What about the tape?

I don't know.

But if it
makes them feel good

knowing it's sitting in a safe

maybe it's not
such a bad thing.


Matthew told me something
last week,

and I don't know
if it's...


Well, he said his dad's
talking to him more,

and he told him that he went out
with the father

of one of the secretaries
in his office.

The secretary was a spy.

She just disappeared.

I guess it was really hard
for Mr. beeman

to talk to her father.

I-i just went over there
looking for Henry,

and he -- he started
telling me this stuff.

Can I drive?
I need more practice.

That's dad's job.

It was worth a shot.

Got a cigarette?

No, we don't.

There's, uh -- there's
a grocery store down there.

Hey, uh, guys,
we don't want any trouble.

Why don't you just, uh, go ahead
and take that.

How old are you?

Don't be scared,




Let's go.

Paige, now!
