It all added up to the difference between Gabriel and his agents: While it was hard for him to leave, it’s much harder for them.He was alone, responsible only to his work; they’re together and responsible to each other, » - Ben Travers, Liz Shannon Miller and Steve Greene [Editor’s note: The following contains light spoilers for each of the shows described.]“The Americans” – Season 5, Episode 7, “The Committee on Human Rights” Directed by: Matthew Rhys Written by: Hilary Bettis Starting with an introduction and ending with a goodbye, “The Committee on Human Rights” was framed by Gabriel’s impending departure.Read More » - Dave Davis Warning: The follow article contains spoilers of ' Ihop,' episode 9 of The Americans' fifth season. This week's episode of The Americans welcomed back a familiar face.Fan-favorite Martha, played by Alison Wright, returned to the FX spy drama after being absent for nearly an entire season. After a brief glimpse in a supermarket earlier this season, this week’s episode “Ihop” filled in many of the blanks with a six-minute sequence in which Martha (so exceptionally played by Alison Wright) gets an unexpected visit from the newly relocated Gabriel (Frank Langella).“I think if you stay at the table, and just play the cards you’re dealt, every once in a while you get aces.” He’s softly spoken, with that air of smooth, baritone authority that films often ask him to turn sinister – his gallery of villains and power-brokers is voluminous.

But one guy who can't seem to get a break is He-Man.In this gentle near-future fable, Frank is given a robot butler by his son (James Marsden) to help around the house.He can’t stand the intrusion, until he realises what a perfect accomplice the robot could be in returning to his old life of crime.The Orlando killings are the worst mass shooting in U. history and appear to have targeted the LGBT community.The murders took place at Pulse, a Florida gay nightclub.The former FBI secretary who unknowingly married an undercover Russian operative (Matthew Rhys’ Philip Jennings, who used the pseudonym Clark) was whisked away to the U. He shared pivotal parting advice with Phillip (Matthew Rhys) and left a distinct impression on Paige (Holly Taylor).In between, the older Jennings child broke up with her neighbor boyfriend, Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Phillip disagreed on whether or not they should “like” their human targets, and an addition to the family was kept at bay.“It was a good idea for me to play someone who people fully like and care about, even though he’s a ‘bad’ guy. You kind of want him to pick up where he left off and keep robbing insurance companies.” The movie, a feature debut for the writer Christopher Ford and director Jake Schreier, is less to do with future technology than the fallibility of the human machine – specifically our memories.I ask Langella if he saw the robot as a kind of metaphor for this and he takes the bait.
