Episode Info

Next: 1x05 -- Check Mate (Jul/27/2014)

As Sandy conducts her review of the agency's spycraft, she and Jeanne continue to clash. When a potential asset contacts the CIA claiming to have vital information about a communications breach, Sandy has her doubts about the man known as GTPROLOGUE. Could this be part of a larger campaign by the Soviets to obfuscate the truth? Meanwhile, Ames learns that his request for a transfer to Rome has been approved.

Prev: 1x04 -- What’s Done is Done (Jun/28/2014)

After learning that a breach remains at the CIA, Sandy butts heads with Jeanne Vertefeuille, the senior officer conducting a thorough review of their operations. Jeanne's presence also rattles Ames, who feels increasing pressure from the Soviets to provide more information. On the home front, Ames feels even more pressure, caught between his love for his wife Rosario, and placating her spendthrift lifestyle.

After two episodes I was very impressed with "The Assets". A great Soviet/US cat and mouse game that saw agents flip flop their loyalties. One wonders whether this is how the life in the CIA once was. Read more
