    But they should be doing a full-court press recruiting job. Really seduce her with ideology and with training and feelings of empowerment. That she's just hanging out watching Henry while her parents are off plotting or committing one murder or the other, that can't last!

    But I'm giving this show a pass on realism, because I think it is much more about inner conflict.

    What year is this? I would think there would be very little internet activity, if any at all. :confused:

    Mid-eighties, a little after Reagan got shot. It was the BBS era, I believe. I would still expect a keylogger at least. It is certainly Chekhov's PC.

    I really didn't think my post needed an explicit smiley. :(

    It would only have been his job to sit by a door or gate and make sure that nobody unauthorized used it.

    Yes. I was agreeing with you. The writers got it wrong. At least, I think that was your point, earlier in this thread.

    Yes, but does Paige know this?

    If I was Paige, I think I would have a good reason to fear for my life. The only thing she can believe in is that her parent love her.

    No. Paige definitely doesn't know that the KGB intends to recruit her. And she is also too naïve to know that her actions have put Pastor Tim in jeopardy. Although I suspect that naïveté will be rudely yanked away very soon, perhaps even the next episode.

    "Pastor Tim and his family are living happily on a farm in the country."
