It was so surprising, I had no idea how they were going to end up. … You’re watching these characters and you want them to sort of pay, in some way, and you made them pay in the worst possible way, in the most damaging way. That’s what’s so good about it.”                                                                              — Keri Russell, “Elizabeth Jennings” in FX’s The Americans, speaking about the series finale during an Emmy "For Your Consideration" panel in Los Angeles directly after the episode aired on May 30.
