** Larrick equipped and trained the Contras, a right-wing force so brutal that US congress voted to stop funding them. If that's the right side of history, I'd rather be wrong.

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** New York doubling. Shot after shot after shot featuring present-day NYC parking restriction signs, MTA bus stops, bodegas, etc. One train station scene clearly shot along an LIRR line. A scene set in Philly clearly shot somewhere along the 7 line in Queens. The list goes on and on.
** Quite obvious in some of the later episodes of Season 2, supposedly taking place in DC and Virginia in March and April, but featuring snow everywhere due to the brutal winter of 2013-2014 in NYC.

** The show is premised on American and Soviet agents committing brazen assassinations as part of the Cold War. As real-life Cold War operatives have pointed out, no one in either government would have actually dared commit anything so aggressive, as that would have risked sending the world into outright nuclear war.

* FakeDrunk: Philip and Elizabeth attack an Israeli operative and are dragging him away when they're stopped by a cop. They claim they're just escorting their too-drunk friend home. The Israeli, not wanting to make a bad situation even worse, plays along by slurring through a few bars of Kenny Rogers's "The Gambler" along with a nearby jukebox.
