Next thing we know, a S.W.A.T. team is storming the Philly projects and chasing Curtis down. Stan's able to tackle him this time, mostly because a cop car headed him off at the pass. "Shoulda let me catch you the first time," Stan gloats. "I'm pissed off now." The Feds haul Curtis away while I imagine satisfying scenarios that would involve Stan getting his comeuppance for being a twat.
Elsewhere, a somewhat bedraggled-looking Grannie Claudia ambles into the backseat of a parked car with the Jenningses, for an update. The news that one of Gregory's underlings just got nabbed by the Feds is not the most encouraging, certainly. She tells them to get Gregory to a safe house and she'll begin exfiltration procedures. It'll be tough to sneak him out past what will surely be heightened security, but it's nothing they haven't done before. She then asks Elizabeth about whether Gregory will willingly flee to the USSR. "Moscow can be a frightening prospect for someone who hasn't seen the world." Elizabeth gets defensive of her friend, saying he's devoted to the cause. "I think he'll like it there." Philip isn't about to be so generous when he's asked. Claudia says to tell Gregory the truth: he'll be taken care of in Moscow, but it won't be cushy. "It's a hard adjustment," she says, "but after a couple years he'll be fine." She needs Elizabeth to make sure he's onboard. Philip pipes up that Gregory's options have narrowed, but one of them is still to turn on them. Elizabeth vehemently argues that Gregory has always been loyal, that he turned on his own country for them. Philip coolly counters that he's never been faced with life in prison or the electric chair before. Claudia acknowledges that Gregory has never been tested. She tells Elizabeth to talk him into Moscow... or else they'll have to take the other option that's left to them. "As sad as that would make all of us." Except, you know, not including Philip.
Stan questions Curtis, and his pitch is incredibly simple: if you know what you've been caught up in this whole time, better off staying silent. But if somehow he's just a pawn and has been duped into this all along, well... his drug-arrest rap sheet pales in comparison to what they're after him for. Why should he go down for a bunch of KGB-related stuff? It's not like Stan gives a crap about drugs. Curtis knows that cops are full of tricks, and this isn't his first time at the rodeo. Stan's smart, too, though. He drops words like "revenge" and "treason" and then lets Curtis sit and stew with his thoughts. But not before playing his ultimate "We're both goddamn Americans, right?" card. Well maneuvered, Jerko.
