In a season that has featured a dead body being shoved into a suitcase, an extended tooth-pulling sequence, and a gruesome necklacing, it’s saying something when you come across a scene that’s more difficult to watch than all of those. “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” features an absolutely devastating series of scenes that touch upon many of the themes of the show, and the episode again solidifies The Americans as an engrossing, tough-to-watch hour each week.
The Americans Season 3 Episode 9 “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” airs Wednesday March 25th at 10pm on FX. In tonight’s episode, the Mail Robot, having barely survived a violent encounter with Agent Gaad, is in for repairs. Meanwhile, #PoorMartha continues to process what she’s learned about Clark, Philip and Elizabeth struggle with the gravity of unexpected collateral damage, and Stan and Oleg hatch a risky plan to save Nina. Also, someone goes above and beyond to prove their dedication to the cause.
