    Elizabeth and Philip told to pack their bags by Gabriel......Arkady Ivanovich Zotov told by the FBI to leave the country in 48 hrs......Oleg Igorevich Burov stating he's returning home to his family......William Crandall while near death may still spill the beans......Episode 1 of season five should prove interesting.

    This season's ending was a "wrap up" either to move us on to different circumstances next season or end the series. IMHO it is fortunate for me that it has been given two more seasons.

    This season's story arc was about the daughter, now an American teenager. Again, as I posted in 2013, this is a story about a marriage surviving in unusual circumstances that was expanded this year to include "what happens when the kids find out" making it more complex emotionally.

    I find this show intriguing because it is based on truth (perhaps, loosely, perhaps not) as explained in the Wikipedia entry Illegals Program. If you need a little more stimulation there is an FBI website page entitled Operation Ghost Stories: Inside the Russian Spy Case which includes not only photos but video.

    Read the Wikipedia entries to help put this complex story of people into perspective, in particular about these three couples who had kids:

    2.3 Andrey Bezrukov and Yelena Vavilova (Donald Heathfield and Tracey Lee Ann Foley)
    2.4 Vladimir and Lidiya Guryev (Richard and Cynthia Murphy)
    2.5 Mikhail Kutsik and Nataliya Pereverzeva (Michael Zottoli and Patricia Mills)
