Trust Me is the sixth episode of Season One of The Americans on FX, and the sixth episode overall.


A mole hunt within the KGB causes suspicion amongst allies and shatters trust within the Jennings’ marriage. Meanwhile, Stan’s plan to keep his mole safe puts her at even greater risk of discovery.

Plot Edit

Philip and Elizabeth are separately abducted and questioned about being KGB spies in America. Neither admit to it, even if evidence is presented otherwise. Their captors are revealed to be KGB agents trying to ferret out the mole, as the Jennings were first to discover the encryptions which were immediately changed by the FBI.

Meanwhile, Paige and Henry are stranded while their parents are missing and the former decides to hitchhike. They are picked up by a man named Nick, who tells them he is taking a detour to feed the ducks. He then starts to make advances on Paige and Henry notices he has a knife. He smashes a beer bottle over Nick's head, which allows the kids to escape.

The Jennings manage to turn the tables on their captors; Elizabeth mercilessly beats Claudia to send a message to whoever authorized their abduction. Philip seethes at Elizabeth for what he considers a betrayal after she tells him that she had earlier told their handlers that he "liked the U.S. too much" which he feels has led to them being under suspicion. Although fearing being caught, Nina cleverly frames Vasili, a Soviet embassy official, with some help from Stan.

Philip and Elizabeth return home to their kids, giving the excuse that they got into a car accident. She later apologizes to Philip, saying that she herself feels betrayed by the people she trusts most in the world. Atill upset, Philip opts to sleep on the couch.
