Chris Amador is a character in the The Americans. He was an FBI agent and close friend and colleague of Stan Beeman. It is clear Amador had a womaniser-like personality, a sexual attitude toward women. It was later revealed he had a relationship with Martha Hanson, also a fellow colleague.
He began to unravel Martha and Phillip's relationship when he started to stalk her. He cornered Phillip as he made his way to the car park of the motel at which Phillip and Martha were staying. Amador began to question Phillip, a struggle ensued, Amador pulled out a knife, but Phillip turned it around and stabbed Amador. Chris was then taken to a safe house where he was treated by Phillip and Elizabeth attempting to coerce information out of him.
He died of his wounds later in the episode, leaving an angry and vengeful Stan Beeman wanting retribution for his friend's death. Beeman then started a witch-hunt to find and kill Amador's KGB killers, leading him to the doorstep of Arkady Ivanovic, though Stan mistook Arkady's young assistant Vladimir Kosygin for him.
