Last week on The Americans, Philip and Elizabeth’s marriage suffered a serious blow when he found out about her affair with Gregory, one of their contacts with whom they worked to nab Robert’s wife. In an ironic twist, Elizabeth broke things off with Gregory due to finally feeling close with her husband and wanting to give their relationship the chance to flourish, but once Philip found out about her indiscretion, he seemed to wash his hands of ever thinking about her in a loving way again.
