What a fantastic premiere. I admit I've kind of been holding my breath about this episode (and the upcoming ones),
but I have to say I really loved that set-up. Unexpected and awesome.
Keri was excellent. You could see the toll of this life on Elizabeth without her saying a word. Her looking at that cyanide pill, then at herself in the mirror to close the episode... how could this ever end well?
Matthew, too, with the change in Philip after seeing Oleg's sign. It was like the weight of the world was back on his shoulders, looking just like he did in Season 5. Poor Philip, unwillingly dragged back into the life... to spy on his wife, no less.
Things look bad, but I'm still hoping against hope that Philip and Elizabeth make it through.
I've really missed this show. So glad to have it back for the next 9 weeks.
