Speaking of sad women: Martha. She expresses great concern over Clark's car accident and completely accepts everything he says as gospel. She kisses him and then proposes that he get his office to assign someone different to work with her, and Philip looks like this is the first time something like this has crossed his mind. Worst spy. He's like, "I just... can't. Now, let me answer all your other questions with: jewelry!" He hands her the velvet box, and she opens it to find a diamond heart pendant on a chain. He puts it on her, in defiance of what it might have meant for him and Elizabeth.
At home, Philip pouts some more and mumbly reports back that relations with Martha have been normalized. She asks him what he wants from her, and he says she's already done enough. Then he grabs a blanket from the closet and goes to sleep on the couch. "You're not the only one who got hurt today," she says, finally opening up to him. She tells him these were the people she trusted most, believed in most and they betrayed her. "The people I trusted most my whole life," she says. Philip just looks at her and says, "Yeah, I think that says it all." Poor Elizabeth. She and Mrs. Stan should go on a road trip.
Joe R really hopes Elizabeth and Claudia can get past this. He can be reached for lavish praise and nothing but at firstname.lastname@example.org.
