But first, a quick recap of what happened in the last episode.
In “Baggage” (air date: Feb. 4, 2015), the state of Nina (Annet Mahendru) has been revealed. She has a new roommate in prison, but she doesn’t make friends with her. She also got to talk to Oleg’s (Costa Ronin) father about her case.
Stan (Noah Emmerich) had a close encounter with Oleg. He thought he was going to die at the hands of the KGB. However, for some reason, Oleg didn’t pull the trigger on him. Meantime, at the FBI, they welcomed Zinaida (Svetlana Efremova), the defector they smuggled out of Russia via Canada. Stan was assigned to make sure that she would be safe.
Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) took care of disposing Annaliese’s body. It was after Yousaf (Rahul Khanna) killed her, which of the most gruesome and painful thing to watch in the series. Philip asked Yousaf to provide them intel about the Afghanistan operation. They tailed him at a bar, where he talked to a group of men.
Back at home, Elizabeth listened to her mother’s tape one last time before returning this to Gabriel (Frank Langella). Philip asked her if she would like to visit Russia to see her dying mother, but she said that it was not necessary. She did try to make Philip see why she’s more inclined to have Paige join the recruitment program. It was because when she told her mother she was going to be an agent at 16 years old and she supported her choice all the way. Her mother believed that she was doing a great thing for their country.

In this week’s episode, Elizabeth and Philip will attempt to get closer to one on the CIA agents working on the Afghan assignment. They want this person to become their asset from the inside and employing their usual disguises, the Jennings will go to an open house to see their prospect. But the situation will not pan out.
The Jennings will also have another discussion with Gabriel about Paige’s status and it looks like things will slowly unravel regarding their handler’s real intentions for their daughter.
Martha (Alison Wright) is in this episode. She will suggest to Clark that they will have to make a lifestyle change. It’s for the good of their relationship as husband and wife. This, of course, will cause some problems with Clark (and his alter-ego Philip). What will he do to keep this relationship (and his secret identity, for that matter) intact?
Stan remains a tight watch over their KGB asset Zinaida, especially with the media constantly around her. Yet Stan has some suspicions about her, too. Meanwhile, the FBI will be undertaking a crucial operation with Agent Gaad, and over at the Russian camp, Oleg and Tatiana will be asked to gather intel.
