    It's not just casting. It's also the way the dress her up in disguise. She really does look like Elizabeth has looked in some of her many disguises. It confused a lot of earlier in the season too.

    Eh, it's probably mostly casting. Elizabeth's worn enough disguises that basically any disguise someone wears will be one of her previous disguises, so if she looks at all like Elizabeth it will happen. Mainly, however, I was just making sure I understood the question (i.e. "why did the people who made the show do this" vs "why is this character intentionally making herself look like Elizabeth").

    Especially when he kinda tells Elizabeth that she's doing good and she'll be ok.

    So they aren't going to tell Paige that the US is not trying to poison Russian women and children? If I were her, and I found out that that was a lie, I wouldn't trust another word they said. I guess she's not likely to find out, but they should be honest with her--and she doesn't know that they killed that guy anyway, right? :confused:

    Towards the end of the episode the Russians talk briefly about some woman (unless I made that up) and I was wondering if that was who they were referring to...

    As far as Andrea goes... DEFINITE KGB agent. I think.

    It's also a mistake that a friend could make after 15(?) years and a fake out for the audience.

    It could only be because they want to paint the U.S. as the bad guy. This is going to bite them.

    Do you mean the picture Oleg looked at? I thought it was the same girl Stan was talking to but why would Oleg be looking at someone in America since his new job is corruption in Russia?

    I think it was Oleg's Mother. He was looking at the records of her time in the camps.
